modifying the display of a website
Hi. I'm in the planning stage of a project that's meant to personally provide a quicker browsing experience of my university's library, grade reporting program (eLearning), and other websites that can only be accessed through accounts made for university students (through a security system called Shibboleth). I need help on how to go about modifying (read: minimalizing) the display of a website.
The final program will be very minimalistic. The browser UI would appear to be more of a small box that contains the bare minimum of an HTML page needed to access and, for example, download a journal article from the library. For comparison, it'd probably look more like a tree diagram than a website after the modification.
In sum, I pretty much want to see only a search bar and the search's results in my browser (continuing with the online library example).
I'm lucky in that there would be very minimal graphical processing (just the occasional .gif), but I'm not so lucky because, from what I've gathered, I'm going to end up picking-and-choosing from an HTML file.
So how do I create a browser that does this?
