Project Description:
I need the ability to browse a webpage on an iphone or ipad by first defining a URL with 1 or more symbolic entries that I can substitute at the time I want to view the page.

Symbolic entries will be defined in the web address using a #symbol1#, #symbol2# etc. syntax.

For example the defined string:

http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/quickchart/quickchart.asp?symb=#code#&insttype=&freq=6&show=&time=#period#

would require a dialogue with two entry boxes labelled code and period.

When values are entered the page:

http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/quickchart/quickchart.asp?symb=djia&insttype=&freq=6&show=&time=2

would be displayed.

Typically a single substitution symbol would be required but the application should support up to 5.

There needs to be a way to store the symbolic url string so it can be used from session to session.

A useful implementation if it can be easily achieved would be to use a bookmark for the storage of the symbolic string and when it is selected, determine that substitution is required and prompt for the symbols before invoking the substituted URL.

This mechanism would make it a straightforward exercise to set up multiple urls for different purposes.

The key to this application is that it must be easy and fast to browse multiple pages by quickly changing the substitution parameters.

In the example shown, one might want to display charts for several stock codes one after the other.

If this can be implemented using a browser extension which can operate on IOS and Android then so much the better.

My preferred browser is Chrome.
