It is interesting that a competitor to Logos now gives me the ability to view the Logos Web App in their program using a new built-in web browser.

I suspect most would appreciate.

I had a browser in my own Bible software but took it out for security reasons.  Unless the company is expert, too many holes. Logos maybe, Accordance? But again, my own concerns these days.

Since operating systems like macOS, iOS, and Windows already let us use some form of split screen to use apps side-by-side, I'd see this as an unnecessary feature.

Let the OS manufacturer concentrate on browser security. Better that than FL opening up some vulnerabilities in our bible software, as Denise mentioned.

My feelings too.

As a software developer I normally work with 3 27" monitors attached to my MacBook Pro. I can always run browsers on the other monitors or even another Bible software package. Wish there was a way to keep them all in sync.

We already allow viewing a website in a panel on the web app. Just type a full URL into the command box: https://www.wikipedia.org.

https://app.logos.com/browser?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wikipedia.org%2F

Note: This is an experimental feature and isn't supported. It may not work with all websites.

You can even do web app inception and open the web app within the web app within the web app . . . . :)

Thanks Phil.

I get the URL n the command box part but I don't understand  the "web app inception" comment.

the "web app inception" comment

Inception involved a dream within a dream. In this case, a web app within a web app within a web app...

Thanks petah.

But copying a URL into the command box doesn't always work For example I copied in "http://www.ccel.org/" and it opened a new browser tab with no contents. I did not include the quotes in the actual command.

It's an experimental feature and not supported feature (which is why there's no user interface for it), so it may not work with all websites.

Thanks Phill. I'll just wait it out.

Not a big deal as I will just use multiple monitors to achieve the same thing.

Question: If I die in the web app will I die in real life too?
