The myLab portal from the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS offers a way to allow research to be tried out and discussed. Fraunhofer FOKUS uses myLab to present prototypes of technology which will very soon affect Internet applications. The portal presents the latest R&D results from the three thematic areas of platform, services and content within Web 2.0 and blazes a new trail in distributing research results. The range of innovations includes mobile browsers for web widgets, speedy and partially automated creation of web mash-ups and a browser add-on for theme-based surfing.

“We are lining up a lot of technologies like paving stones on the road to the Internet of the future”. This is how David Linner from Fraunhofer FOKUS explains the original idea. “For example, in our applications we use functions which allow several users to work on the same Wiki entry at the same time. We also offer components which mean that users can enjoy the offering of their IPTV set-top box in their web browser without any restrictions. Another example of what we do are components which help users find their way around the data jungle of the Internet by means of recommendations and pre-selections.”
