The DrawBack browser project

The DrawBack browser project. An idea from Jorn Barger for a bare-bones web browser that give back a lot of control to the user, rather than the page designer.

The way I hope it will evolve is towards smart local stylesheets (maintained on your local drive) that allow you great flexibility in re-formatting others’ page- designs, while automatically learning how to generalise those formatting choices to other pages on the same site.

These may use simple pattern-recognition (eg regular expressions) to distinguish the useful parts of a page from the annoying parts, hopefully even if the page is considerably revised.
