What is ''PowerBrowsing''?
PowerBrowsing means browsing the Web seeing only what you chose to see. Even if this might seem an easy thing to do, it is not and it will become harder and harder in the future... unless, of course, you become "powerbrowsers". Now, think about downloading one tenth of the data you usually download, skipping all the advertisements, avoiding popups, keeping interesting data (and only them) on your computer and accessing them while you're offline, in a custom, easier and more effective way. Think that, once those data are on your hard disk, you can write programs which work on them to produce new, even more interesting information. Finally, think about the chance of making all these data available to everyone, maybe in an automatical way.
All of this is what I call PowerBrowsing.
