jQuery browserEvent

A jQuery plugin for transferring and synchronizing data between browser windows, all working on the same computer (not across a network)
jQuery browserEvent works with browser windows from the same manufacturer.

This means it won't synchronize data between an instance of a page opened in Google Chrome and one in Firefox.

Nevertheless the plugin can be very useful for situations where the user has opened a site or an app in multiple tabs, browserEvent allowing developers to automatically keep all their data in sync, even if one of the windows has not been refreshed lately.

A similar mechanism is now supported by most browsers through the SharedWorker feature.

This has made the plugin obsolete, but jQuery browserEvent might be used as a fallback or alternative system.

A demo is included with the download package.
