 30 May 2006 - Encyclopaedia Britannica Standardize on WebRenderer


JadeLiquid Software(TM), the leading Java browser component provider, today announced that Encyclopaedia Britannica will utilize its WebRenderer(TM) Java browser component within their desktop applications.

A key component of each of Encyclopaedia Britannica's desktop products is the built-in browser feature enabled by JadeLiquid's WebRenderer. These products allow Britannica's customers to access hundreds of thousands of articles, multi-media and many interactive tools on both Windows and Mac OSX desktops. An online update center allows users to view online the most recently updated articles by Britannica editors, all without having to leave the Encyclopaedia Britannica application.

"We chose WebRenderer because it allows us to embed the Mozilla browser in our products, and, being Java Swing compatible, it provides both standards compliance and a platform for a compelling user interface," said Luna Rajbhandari, Director, CD/DVD Technology, with Encyclopaedia Britannica. "Also we have found WebRenderer to be a high performance and stable component. Now all Britannica desktop products use WebRenderer for content display."

We are thrilled to have Encyclopaedia Britannica standardizing on WebRenderer. With the sheer volume of content displayed in Britannica's applications there is a real necessity for standards compliant web content display. WebRenderer does this to a very high standard", said Anthony Scotney, CEO of JadeLiquid Software.
