Web Clipping in OSX Leopard

Posted in Clipping, Mashups, Orchestr8 at 11:05 am by admin

Techcrunch has posted an interesting write-up on a new feature in OS X Leopard: Web Clipping

It’s great seeing innovative companies like Apple embracing web clipping technology. I’m a big believer in the “cut-and-paste web” and my company has been working for some time now to make this concept a reality.

I’ve blogged on this subject previously, discussing some of the technical hurdles that must be overcome to reliably clip arbitrary web content. Regarding clipping in Leopard: Apple’s solution is somewhat limited in that it only displays clipped content in a mini-browser; it isn’t capable of inserting clipped content into other web pages or applications.

For those interested in seeing mouse-based clipping of web content in action, check out any of these screencasts:
