Modern web pages are no longer static plain HTML files, and they provide rich content through scripting languages such as JavaScript and multimedia. However, communications between browser applications that use scripting languages remain challenge. As a solution to this problem, we propose BISSA, a communication model which provides a unified and time-decoupled communication platform based on tuple spaces for browser applications. BISSA consists of an in-browser tuple space and a scalable and distributed peer-to-peer global tuple space, and both can either act standalone or collaborate with each other. The in-browser tuple space provides a solid communication infrastructure for web gadgets. The integration with the peer-to-peer global tuple space further enforces this paradigm of communication, effectively allowing web gadgets to contribute or co-ordinate with the underlying computing infrastructure. This paper presents BISSA, its architecture and show how browser applications can use BISSA as an inter-gadget communication solution, storage platform for application generated data and as a middleware to develop web-based applications that brings the computation power of browser in to the grid.
