Today Robin Good pointed me to Bitty, an embedded micro-browser. It's been around for a while -- since May '05 according to del.icio.us. Scanning the commentary at that link shows that there's interest in this kind of picture-in-picture capability, along with some confusion about whether it's useful, and if so how. I'm ambivalent too, but I thought of an application that I'll call See It, Try It. Is it useful? I'm not sure. See it, try it, and decide for yourself.
