3-D browser

A 3-D browser is a Web browser that allows the viewer to view and interact with six Web pages at a time by creating a virtual room on the viewer's screen. Instead of opening six Web pages, minimizing your screen and toggling back and forth between pages, imagine you are standing inside a six-sided cube and each side of the cube is displaying a Web page. There is a Web page in front of you, a Web page on each side of you, a page above you, a page below you and a page behind you. You can use your cursor to rotate the cube and put any side of the cube directly in front of you. Links on all the pages are active, so you can click from page to page and change the "walls" of your virtual Web room. If you see something that catches your interest, you can use the zoom feature to enlarge the "wall" so that it becomes a traditional page viewed on your flat screen.

The concept of a 3-D Web browser has been promoted by former architect and chief executive officer of 2ce, Mike Rosen. Rosen hopes that the next generation of computer users, who have grown up multi-tasking in virtual reality gaming environments, will embrace a 3-D version of the Web. Besides being fun, Rosen believes that having the ability to view multiple pages will be of practical use to day traders and others whose occupations require them to view multiple Web pages throughout the day.
