Watson: An Innovative Utility
that Bypasses the Web Browser

Makes getting information from the Web simple and straightforward

Watson app icon

Presenting Watson for Mac OS X: a time-saving "Swiss Army Knife" program that packs over 20 time-saving, productivity-enhancing interfaces to the most important web content and services.

Making the Web Elementary!

URLs are hard to remember. Web services are scattered across the vastness of the web. Bookmark management is an oxymoron. Watson eliminates these problems and reduces your time-to-everything on the web — Watson makes getting information from the Web simple and straightforward.

Watson. Web, Effortlessly. Works on Mac OS X 10.1, Jaguar, Panther, and Tiger. Watson has not been updated to be "universal binary," however.

A Pioneering Desktop Interface to the Web.

Watson delivers increased productivity in a user-friendly package with:

  • Information quality — Get the information you want without the extraneous baggage found on Web sites.
  • Consistent, pre-rendered Mac OS X "Aqua" interfaces — with its decade plus of maturity—replace the inconsistent browser interfaces that make you wait as they render.
  • Descriptive icons in a configurable toolbar replace byzantine bookmarks.
  • Information gathered from multiple related sites to simplify web complexity.
  • No need for a reload button or URL address bar. Watson plug-ins auto-update content when appropriate. (URLs are like relatives: you only want to see them on your own terms.)

Keep your favorite web browser, though. While some Watson plug-ins are self-contained, others use your web browser to help with tasks like purchasing movie tickets.

The Mac version of Watson is no longer fully supported as of October 5, 2004. Please stay tuned for more news about future releases of Watson from its licensee, Sun Microsystems. Find Out More.
