The way I arranged this -- shall we say -- "work process" for my father
involves a single page with many links (i.e. a portal). It contains all the
needed links to be opened in tabs (middle button in most Web browser). These
links lead to pages with a static URL (e.g. Yahoo), so there is nothing to
tweak therein (on-page selection). I would expect the very contrary from
Google Finance, for instance, as they use AJAX. He seems very happy with
this; and productive too. To get yourself a portal, there are many services
nowadays (e.g. del.icio.us), so HTML knowledge or design tools are not
required. Web services as such didn't truly exist (as far as I know) when I
began with this strategy in 2002.
