In this paper the main characteristics of the educational browser YADBrowser are described. One of the main objetives of this project is to define new languages and protocols which facilitate the creation of educative applications for Internet.
The fundamental characteristics of the object model of the browser are also described. YADBrowser markup language is inspired in HTML 4, in this paper the main differences between them are mentioned. The fundamentals of the OPScript language are also exposed, it was created to be used as the script language for the browser. The main difference between YADBrowser and current browsers is that it allows to add new characteristics to its object model using a feature called dynamical additions. This allows to adapt a given application to the skills of the student that make use of it.
