Ten Ways to Display a Web Page

Displaying a web page is like painting and hanging a picture: there are plenty of options.

Web pages that display only one way are called printouts . Firefox lets you display and view the content of a web page in a number of different ways. You also get to choose decorations for your windows. This hack shows 10 different ways you can display web content in Firefox.

Normal Browser Window

By default, web pages appear inside a frame with a menu bar and toolbars above and a status bar below. Those bars provide user control and feedback. The whole browser window is a single XML document written in Mozilla’s XUL dialect of XML. The web page appears inside an XUL <iframe>. Scripts running inside the web page can’t reach out into XUL, so those bars are mostly untouchable. Most bars can be disabled from the View menu. Figure 1-3 shows a normal Firefox window with the sidebar made visible.
