Consumption of (business) processes provided in form of Web sites have become a part of our daily life for attending our personal and business needs. In order to obtain the best solution for a particular task, users often combine several Web processes. However, the coordination of the execution of such Web process compositions is completely manual demanding the user to enter same or logical dependent data multiple times. We argue that a part of such coordination effort could be automatized by swapping out the uncreative coordination tasks to the Web browser. Our solution allows users to compose Web processes as generic solutions and execute the compositions with appropriate parameters every time they need to perform a concrete task, thus relieving them from a lot of manual coordination effort. We show how such Web process compositions can be formalized, obtained and executed inside a common Web browser with automatic flow of data among different parties despite heterogeneous data.
