    Looking for a plugin/software to show only part of a web page/screen

    Hi everybody,

    For some personal reason when I browser some website at office or public place, I don't want other people to see all my web page, I only want to display a small part of that page so that only me can see it in a close distance.
    I think there are 2 possibilities:
    - Firefox or other browsers: maybe some add-on some special browser can do.
    - A software that can hide part of my screen and only display a region of it.

    I searched in Firefox add-on but cannot find what I need, (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9249 can do some similar thing, but it show a region of text I guest by filter the page code, it is not what I want is a region of any object like a part of a flash)

    Does anyone know any plugin/browser/software can do that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anybody?

    I were thinking of writing it myself with Gambas, maybe using 4 sub-windows to fill the screen and left a region, then resize all 4 windows to resize the view region. But if we already had something similar then I would give it a try.

    Why don't you just resize the Browser window to be pretty small and then scroll around the website?

    Yes, that's one solution, but because I want to view a flash object, that solution not work correctly, and other page use some sort of code to arrange object with window size, they look bad and cannot display all information.
