When i send html to the screen from arduino

is there a way to read the browsers list of visited places? It might be fun to read it and display it to the screen or save to sd card.

Do you mean for the Arduino to read the history of your phone/pc/laptop's browser? No. If you could, that would be a serious security problem with the browser.

yes, read stuff stored in the browser. I think Facebook does it to track users and learn about what ads to send them, so they read your searches and sites. I just want a list of all the sites I visit in a day.

More than likely, Google and other sites provide Facebook with that information.

hmm. you would have to match url to url, that would be easy, but would that alone tie to an individual? mostly I suppose.

Is there a way to have my arduino html open a window to say YouTube and have it let me enter what I want to see from the arduino via the html connected to the browser?

Yes I think that could be done.

It's not clear to me what you want your Arduino to do with YouTube. Did you want the Arduino to redirect you? Did you want to have a YouTube video embedded in the page served by your Arduino? Both are possible. For embedding, YouTube will even write the HTML for you:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dQw4w9WgXcQ" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I want to click on a YouTube video and insert _popup before the ? mark.

It blocks the ads. So I was thinking if I had control with an html page that I made via arduino I could maybe do that. How I don't know, but maybe.

I've learned that if you fool with this stuff long enough you can make it do anything you want!

the rick roll thing. somehow I KNEW that's what you had there!


it's funny when I put that in the arduino, it said video unavailable, but clicking on it worked in a new screen. must be one of those options but thing the picture-n-picture is self explanatory.

That sounds much more like a browser extension than an Arduino sketch.

I think you might be able to do it with an Arduino if you set up the Arduino as your web proxy. Then every request to the web goes through your proxy. I suspect that it will slow down your bandwidth quite a bit.

How hard are those? I have no idea!
