Description

The present invention relates to control how the information processing apparatus and an information processing apparatus to be displayed on the display unit acquires the contents from the WEB server.

  In general, an information processing apparatus such as a personal computer (PC) is often used in an environment connected to a WEB server via a network. In such an information processing apparatus, a structured language file such as HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) or an image data file is acquired as content from a WEB server. In this information processing apparatus, the content acquired from the WEB server is displayed on the display unit by a WEB browser installed in the information processing apparatus.

  Such WEB browser display includes an area for displaying content acquired from a WEB server. At the same time, the display of this WEB browser includes an area (address bar) for displaying the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) address of the WEB server that acquired the content.

  In such a WEB browser display, the user can check the URL address displayed in the address bar to confirm from which WEB server the content currently displayed on the WEB browser is acquired. .

  Recently, some information processing apparatuses such as an MFP (Multi Functional Peripheral) equipped with a scanner and a printer have an embedded WEB browser. In such an MFP, the content of the WEB server connected via the network is displayed on the operation display unit on the MFP.

  However, many operation display units in the MFP have a small display screen size due to restrictions on the size of the housing and restrictions on cost reduction.

  For this reason, the display section of the MFP is inferior in the listability and appearance of contents when compared with a WEB browser in a general PC. Further, the display unit of the MFP may acquire and display an operation screen for performing an operation related to the function of the MFP itself from the WEB server. In this case, when the URL address is displayed in the address bar, the user is informed that the operation screen is the content acquired from the WEB server. That is, since the presence / absence of the address bar display is different between the case where the operation screen stored in advance in the MFP is displayed and the case where the operation screen acquired from the WEB server is displayed, the user may be confused. There is a fear.

  For this reason, the display unit of the MFP hides the address bar of the WEB browser in order to expand the display area of the content as much as possible or to prevent the user from being aware that the content is acquired from the WEB server. There is.

  Also, a conventional image processing apparatus such as a copying machine or a printer has been proposed that performs control to hide the operation means including the address bar according to an instruction from a WEB server. In this image processing apparatus, in response to a specific command transmitted from a WEB server as a content acquisition source, it has been proposed to hide an operation unit for screen transition including an address bar in a WEB browser. (For example, refer to Patent Document 1).

JP 2008-186065 A

  However, in recent years, the problem of content alteration by so-called phishing has been pointed out. For this reason, in the information processing apparatus, it is important to display the URL address by the address bar so that the user can check whether the content displayed on the display unit is acquired from a valid WEB server. .

  Furthermore, in the information processing apparatus, if the address bar is hidden, it is impossible to confirm whether the currently displayed content is acquired from a valid WEB server, which causes distrust to the user. Therefore, the conventional information processing apparatus always displays the address bar even when content from a reliable WEB server is displayed.

  For this reason, in the conventional information processing apparatus, the display area of the content displayed on the display unit is narrowed by the display amount of the address bar, so that all display items cannot be displayed on one page, and the listability is lowered. It was supposed to be.

  Some conventional information processing apparatuses can hide the address bar by an instruction from a WEB server. In such an information processing apparatus, when a malicious WEB server sends an address bar non-display instruction and impersonates the WEB server, there is a problem that the user cannot confirm the URL address.

An object of the present invention is to hide the address bar when content is acquired from a preset reliable WEB server, and to enable content display using the operation display area effectively. Furthermore, when displaying the content acquired from the WEB server which is not preset, the URL address is displayed by the address bar. Thus, the user is to provide a control how the currently displayed information processing apparatus to be able to see seemingly the content is acquired from any WEB server has and an information processing apparatus.

In order to achieve the above object, an information processing apparatus according to the present invention includes an input unit for inputting a URL, an acquisition unit for acquiring content corresponding to the URL input by the input unit from a WEB server, and the acquisition unit. Display means for displaying the acquired content, control means for controlling whether or not to display a display area for displaying a URL together with the acquired content, based on the URL input by the input means; Setting means for setting whether or not to set the display area to be hidden, and the control means, when the setting to hide is performed by the setting means, the input means The display area for displaying the URL is controlled together with the acquired content based on the URL input by the control unit to hide the display. When the setting to be performed is not performed by the setting unit, the display area is controlled to be displayed together with the content regardless of the URL input by the input unit. .

  According to the present invention, the address bar is not displayed when the content of a preset reliable WEB server is displayed. Thereby, the listability and appearance of content can be improved, and content display using the display area of the operation unit can be performed. Further, when displaying content acquired from a WEB server other than a preset WEB server, an address bar is displayed on the display screen so that the user can confirm the URL address of the WEB server. . Accordingly, there is an effect that the user can improve the reliability by allowing only the content acquired from the legitimate WEB server to be browsed.

  An MFP (Multi Functional Peripheral) including a scanner and a printer according to a first embodiment of the information processing apparatus of the present invention will be described below with reference to FIGS.

  The MFP according to the first embodiment hides the address bar when displaying the content corresponding to the address acquired from the WEB server with the URL address set in advance. At the same time, this MFP is configured to display an address bar when displaying content acquired from a WEB server other than a preset WEB server.

  As shown in the block diagram of the entire system including the MFP in FIG. 1, in this system, the MFP 101 and the WEB servers 102 and 103 are connected by a network. This network is composed of a LAN (local area network) 104 and the Internet 105.

  The MFP 101 has a copy function for scanning a paper medium, forming an image on a sheet based on the scan data, and outputting the image. The MFP 101 is equipped with a WEB browser 300, can acquire content held in the WEB servers 102 and 103, and can display it on the operation display unit 211.

  Next, the configuration of the MFP 101 will be described with reference to the block diagram of FIG. The MFP 101 includes a controller unit 200 to which a scanner 213 and a printer 214 are connected, and an operation display unit 211, an operation input unit 212, and a LAN 104 can be connected.

  The controller unit 200 includes a CPU (Central Processing Unit) 201 that executes various control programs arranged on the system bus 210 together with various devices. The CPU 201 activates the MFP 101 based on a boot program stored in a ROM (Read Only Memory) 203 via the system bus 210. The CPU 201 reads a control program stored in an HDD (hard disk device) 204 and executes predetermined processing using a RAM (Random Access Memory) 202 as a work area.

  The HDD 204 stores various control programs including the function of the WEB browser 300. In short, the controller unit 200 realizes functions and operations as the WEB browser 300. Further, the HDD 204 stores scan data read from the scanner 213 and content data acquired from a WEB server outside the apparatus via the network I / F 207.

  An operation unit output I / F 205 arranged on the system bus 210 controls data output communication to the operation display unit 211. An operation display unit 211 connected to the operation unit output I / F 205 is a display interface to the user. The operation display unit 211 includes a display device such as an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or an LED (Light Emitting Diode).

  An operation unit input I / F 206 disposed on the system bus 210 performs data input communication control from the operation display unit 212. An operation input unit 212 connected to the operation unit input I / F 206 is an instruction input interface from a user including input devices such as a touch panel and hard keys.

  A network I / F 207 arranged on the system bus 210 is connected to the LAN 104 and performs input / output control of information via the LAN 104.

  A scanner I / F 208 arranged on the system bus 210 inputs image data from the scanner 213 and inputs / outputs scanner control data. The scanner 213 includes an optical reading device such as a CCD (Charge Coupled Device), and has a function of optically scanning a paper medium and reading it as electronic image data.

  A printer I / F 209 arranged on the system bus 210 outputs output image data to the printer 214 and inputs / outputs printer control data. The printer 214 has a function of forming electronic image data as an image on a recording medium such as paper.

  Next, the software configuration of the WEB browser installed in the MFP 101 will be described with reference to FIG.

  The WEB browser 300 shown in FIG. 3 is realized by the CPU 201 included in the controller unit 200 in the information processing apparatus 101 reading and executing a control program stored in the ROM 203 or the HDD 204.

  The content acquisition unit 301 installed in the WEB browser 300 has a function of communicating with a WEB server outside the apparatus via the network I / F 207. More specifically, in response to an instruction from the user, the content is requested from the WEB server, or the content transmitted from the WEB server based on the request is received.

  The content analysis unit 302 of the WEB browser 300 analyzes the content acquired by the content acquisition unit 301 and forms a screen to be displayed on the operation display unit 211. That is, the WEB browser 300 includes an address drawing unit that creates a screen for displaying the address of the WEB server from which the content is acquired on the operation display unit. The content acquired from the WEB server is created mainly by a structured language file such as HTML or an image data file, and describes the contents of the operation screen displayed on the operation display unit 211.

  The screen display processing unit 303 of the WEB browser 300 instructs the operation unit output I / F 205 to display the display screen that is analyzed and formed by the content analysis unit 302 on the operation display unit 211. That is, the WEB browser 300 includes a content drawing unit that analyzes the content acquired by the content acquisition unit and creates a screen to be displayed on the operation display unit.

  Thereby, the content of the content acquired from the WEB server is displayed on the operation display unit 211. It also instructs the display of a setting screen for performing various settings of the WEB browser 300.

  The operation instruction input unit 304 of the WEB browser 300 receives an input instruction from the user via the operation unit input I / F 206. The instruction received by the operation instruction input unit 304 includes an input setting instruction for a URL address (address information), an access instruction for a link included in the content display screen displayed on the operation display unit 211, and a setting screen of the WEB browser 300. There are setting instructions.

  The non-display address control unit 305 of the WEB browser 300 accepts a registration instruction for the URL address (address information) of the WEB server that hides the address bar, which is input by the user. The non-display address control unit 305 stores a registration instruction for the URL address (address information) of the WEB server that hides the address bar in the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 as non-display address data 307. Further, the non-display address control unit 305 reads the stored non-display address data 307 from the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 as necessary. That is, the WEB browser 300 includes non-display address information acquisition means for acquiring address information of a content acquisition source that does not display an address on the operation display unit.

  Furthermore, the access control address setting unit 306 receives a registration instruction for the URL address of the WEB server to which access is permitted, which is input by the user. The access control address setting unit 306 stores information on the URL address of the WEB server that permits access in the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 as access permission address data 308.

  In short, the WEB browser 300 includes an acquirable address information storage unit that stores address information of a WEB server that permits content acquisition.

  Further, the access control address setting unit 306 reads the stored access permission address data 308 from the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 as necessary.

  Next, a series of processing operations in which the MFP 101 receives an instruction from the user and performs content screen display and data setting in the WEB browser based on the instruction will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG. Each operation shown in the flowchart of FIG. 4 is realized by the CPU 201 of the MFP 101 executing a control program stored in the ROM 203 or the HDD 204.

  In the content screen display and data setting process, the WEB browser 300 waits until receiving an operation instruction from the user (NO in step S401).

  When the operation instruction input unit 304 receives various operation instructions from the user to the WEB browser 300 via the operation unit input I / F 206 (YES in step S401), the process proceeds to the next step S402.

  In step S <b> 402, the WEB browser 300 determines an operation instruction input from the user by the operation instruction input unit 304. Here, the WEB browser 300 determines whether or not the operation instruction input from the user is an instruction for setting and registering an address bar display prohibited address.

  Here, the operation screen displayed on the operation display unit 211 by the WEB browser 300 is as illustrated in FIGS. This operation screen is displayed on the operation display unit 211 via the operation unit output I / F 205 by the screen display processing unit 303 of the WEB browser 300.

  The WEB browser 300 displays an address bar display prohibited address setting screen as shown in FIG.

  Here, the address bar display prohibition address refers to a URL address at which the WEB browser 300 does not display an address bar on the operation display unit 211. When the address bar display prohibition address matches the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content, the WEB browser 300 controls not to display the address bar on the operation display unit 211.

  In setting the address bar display prohibition address, normally, the URL address of a reliable WEB server that does not require the user to confirm the URL address of the WEB server is set.

  In short, the WEB browser 300 acquires content only when the address of the WEB server from which the content acquisition unit acquires content matches the address information of the acquirable address information storage unit. The WEB browser 300 includes an acquisition control unit (access control unit) that controls the content acquisition unit in this way.

  In addition, when the setting is made as described above, the address bar can be prevented from being displayed only when the content acquired from the reliable WEB server in which the URL address (address information) is registered in advance is displayed. When the address bar is not displayed in the area of the operation display unit 211, a part of the display area is not occupied for the display of the address bar, so that the entire display area can be used effectively to display content. it can.

  An address bar non-display setting switch 501 and an address bar non-display address setting edit box 502 are displayed on the address bar non-display address setting dialog 500 shown in FIG.

  The address bar non-display setting switch 501 is a switch for setting whether or not to perform address bar non-display processing by comparing URL addresses when an address bar non-display address is set.

  In short, the WEB browser 300 includes a non-display address setting unit that stores, in the non-display address information storage unit, a content acquisition source address that does not display an address on the operation display unit, which is input from the user by the operation input unit.

  When the address bar non-display setting switch 501 is enabled, the WEB browser 300 compares the registered URL address of the non-display address data 307 with the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content. Then, the WEB browser 300 performs a non-display process of the address bar that matches as a result of the comparison.

  An address bar non-display address setting edit box 502 shown in FIG. 5A is an edit area for designating the URL address of the content acquisition source WEB server for hiding the address bar. This address bar non-display address setting edit box 502 is configured so that URL addresses of a plurality of WEB servers can be designated.

  If a plurality of URL addresses are set, it is determined whether the URL address of the WEB server from which the WEB browser 300 obtains content matches any one of the address bar non-display addresses.

  If the acquired URL address of the WEB server matches one of the designated address bar non-display addresses, the content is displayed with the address bar hidden.

  An address bar non-display address setting OK button 503 shown in FIG. 5A is a button for confirming an item set by the user in the address bar non-display address setting dialog 500.

  Next, in step S402 shown in the flowchart of FIG. 4, the WEB browser 300 determines whether or not the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to press the address bar non-display address setting OK button 503.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines that the instruction is to press the address bar non-display address setting OK button 503 (YES in step S402), the process of the next step S410 is performed.

  In step S410, the non-display address control unit 305 stores the non-display address data 307 in the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 in accordance with the registration instruction for the user's address bar non-display address setting, and then returns to the process in step S401. The non-display address data 307 includes data of the value of the address bar non-display address setting switch 501 and the URL address of the address bar non-display address setting edit box 502.

  In step S402, if the web browser 300 determines that the operation input instruction from the user is not a registration instruction for address bar non-display address setting (NO in step S402), the process proceeds to step S403.

  In step S403, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to access the URL address. Here, the URL address access instruction includes an access instruction for a link in the content displayed on the operation display unit 211 and an access instruction for a WEB server to which the user directly inputs the URL address.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines that it is not an instruction to access the URL address (NO in step S403), the process returns to step S401.

  Furthermore, when the WEB browser 300 determines that the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to access the URL address (YES in step S403), the process proceeds to step S404. In step S404, the content acquisition unit 301 acquires content from the WEB server at the URL address instructed to be accessed by the user.

  In step S405, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the value of the address bar hidden address setting switch 501 is valid based on the value of the hidden address data 307 stored in step S410. That is, the WEB browser 300 determines whether or not the setting is to perform the address bar non-display process by comparing the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines that the value of the address bar non-display address setting switch 501 is invalid (NO in step S405), the WEB browser 300 performs a process of step S407 described later.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines that the value of the address bar non-display address setting switch 501 is valid (YES in step S405), the process proceeds to step S406.

  In step S <b> 406, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content matches the URL address of the non-display address data 307.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines that the URL address of the WEB server from which the content has been acquired does not match the URL address of the non-display address data 307 (NO in step S406), the process proceeds to step S407.

  In step S407, the WEB browser 300 instructs the content analysis unit 302 to analyze the content acquired from the WEB server and generate a content display screen. Further, the WEB browser 300 instructs the screen display processing unit 303 to display the content display screen data generated by the content analysis unit 302 on the operation display unit 211.

  Next, in step S408, the WEB browser 300 forms an address bar display screen that displays the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content in step S404. Further, the WEB browser 300 instructs the screen display processing unit 303 to display the address bar display screen. In short, the WEB browser 300 includes a display unit that acquires a screen from the content drawing unit and the address drawing unit and displays the screen on the operation unit.

  Thereafter, in step S409, the screen display processing unit 303 displays the instructed content display screen and address bar display screen on the operation display unit 211 via the operation unit output I / F 205.

  Here, the WEB browser 300 displays a screen of the WEB browser as shown in FIG. On the screen of the WEB browser, a content display area 510 and an address bar display area 511 are displayed on the operation display unit 211.

  In the content display area 510, the content display screen generated in step S407 is displayed. At the same time, the address bar display area 511 displays the address bar display screen generated in step S408.

  In this display, the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content currently displayed in the content display area 510 is displayed in the address bar display area 511. Thus, the user can know which WEB server provides the content that he / she is browsing, and can feel secure. The content display area 510 is narrowed by the address bar display screen.

  Next, when the WEB browser 300 determines that the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content matches the URL address of the non-display address data 307 (YES in step S406), the process proceeds to step S411.

  In step S411, the WEB browser 300 instructs the content analysis unit 302 to analyze the content acquired from the WEB server and generate a content display screen. At this time, the WEB browser 300 instructs generation of an enlarged content display screen on the assumption that the address bar display area 511 is not displayed. Further, the WEB browser 300 instructs the screen display processing unit 303 to display the content display screen data generated by the content analysis unit 302 on the operation display unit 211.

  Next, the screen display processing unit 303 proceeds to step S412 and displays the instructed content display screen on the operation display unit 211 via the operation unit output I / F 205.

  Here, the WEB browser 300 displays a screen of the WEB browser as shown in FIG. 5C on the operation display unit 211. On the screen of this WEB browser, only the content display screen is displayed in the content display area 520, and the address bar is not displayed on the screen of the operation display unit 211.

  In short, the WEB browser 300 compares the address information of the WEB server from which the content acquisition unit has acquired the content with the address information acquired by the non-display address information acquisition unit. The WEB browser 300 includes address display control means for controlling the screen created by the address drawing means not to be displayed on the display means when the content acquisition source address matches the non-display address information.

  Thereby, the content display area 520 can be displayed widely on the operation display unit 211, and the listability and operability in content display can be improved. For example, since the content can be displayed on the entire screen of the operation display unit 211, display contents can be listed as much as a part of the content is not hidden.

  Further, by the series of processes shown in FIG. 4, the address bar can be hidden only when the content of the WEB server whose URL address matches the URL address registered in advance by the user is displayed. Therefore, in the MFP according to the first embodiment, it is possible to give the user a sense of security that the content acquired from the intended WEB server is being browsed even if the address bar is not displayed.

  Next, a second embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

  In the second embodiment, the address bar is hidden only when the MFP, which is an example of the information processing apparatus of the present invention, performs access restriction that permits access only to a pre-registered WEB server. . If not, an address bar is displayed. Since the system configuration and the like in the second embodiment are the same as those in the first embodiment described above, only the parts different from the first embodiment will be described here, and the description of the common parts will be omitted. To do.

  Each operation shown in the flowchart of FIG. 6 is realized by the CPU 201 of the MFP 101 executing a control program stored in the ROM 203 or the HDD 204.

  In this content screen display and data setting process, the WEB browser 300 waits until receiving an operation instruction from the user (NO in step S601).

  When the operation instruction input unit 304 receives various operation instructions from the user to the WEB browser 300 via the operation unit input I / F 206 (YES in step S401), the process proceeds to the next step S602.

  In step S <b> 602, the WEB browser 300 determines the user's operation instruction input from the user by the operation instruction input unit 304. Here, the WEB browser 300 determines whether or not the operation instruction from the user is an instruction to set an access restriction that allows browsing only a pre-registered WEB server.

  Here, the setting screen of the access restriction setting address displayed on the operation display unit 211 by the WEB browser 300 is as illustrated in FIG. The access restriction setting address is an address that allows the WEB browser 300 to access the WEB server only when the access restriction setting address matches the URL address of the WEB server from which the content is acquired.

  If the access restriction setting address does not match the URL address of the WEB server that acquires the content, access to the WEB server itself is prohibited. When this access restriction setting address is designated, the URL address of a reliable WEB server is usually designated.

  On the access restriction setting address setting dialog 530 shown in FIG. 5D, an access restriction setting switch 531 and an access permission address setting edit box 532 are displayed. This access restriction setting switch 531 is a switch for setting whether or not the WEB browser 300 performs access restriction itself for the WEB server by comparing with the registered URL address. In a situation where the access restriction setting switch 531 is enabled, the WEB browser 300 performs acquisition control for accessing only a WEB server whose URL address matches a previously registered URL address.

  An access permission address setting edit box 532 shown in FIG. 5D is an editing area for designating the URL address of a content acquisition source WEB server that permits access when content is acquired. The access permission address setting edit box 532 is configured to be able to specify URL addresses of a plurality of WEB servers.

  An access restriction setting OK button 533 shown in FIG. 5D is a button for confirming an item set by the user in the access restriction address setting dialog 530.

  Next, in step S <b> 602 shown in the flowchart of FIG. 6, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to press the access restriction setting OK button 533.

  If the WEB browser 300 determines in the access restriction setting dialog 530 that the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to press the access restriction setting OK button 533, the process proceeds to step S609.

  In step S609, the access restriction address setting unit 306 stores the access permission address data 308 in the RAM 202 or the HDD 204 in accordance with the user access restriction setting registration instruction, and then returns to the process of step S601. The access permission address data 308 includes the value of the access restriction setting switch 531 and the URL address of the access permission address setting edit box 532.

  In step S602, if the WEB browser 300 determines that the operation input instruction from the user is not an instruction to press the access restriction setting OK button 533 (NO in step S602), the process proceeds to step S603.

  In step S603, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to access the URL address. If it is determined that the instruction is not an instruction to access the URL address, the process returns to step S601.

  Furthermore, when the WEB browser 300 determines that the operation input instruction from the user is an instruction to access the URL address (YES in step S603), the process proceeds to step S604.

  In step S604, the WEB browser 300 determines whether or not the value of the access restriction setting switch 531 of the access permission address data 308 is set to be valid. If it is determined that the value of the access restriction setting switch is invalid (NO in step S604), that is, if it is determined that access restriction to the WEB server by the URL address is not performed, the process proceeds to step S610. move on.

  In step S610, the content acquisition unit 301 acquires content from the WEB server at the URL address instructed to be accessed by the user.

  Next, through the processing from step S611 to step S613, first, the WEB browser 300 instructs the content analysis unit 302 to analyze the content acquired in step S610 and generate the content display screen. Next, the WEB browser 300 instructs the image display processing unit 303 to display the content display screen generated by the content analysis unit 302. Next, the WEB browser 300 instructs the image display processing unit 303 to display an address bar display screen. Then, the image display processing unit 303 displays the content display screen and the address bar display screen on the operation display unit 211 via the operation unit output I / F 205.

  The series of processing described above is equivalent to the processing from step S407 to step S409 in FIG. 4 described in the first embodiment.

  After the process of step S613, the operation display unit 211 displays a screen in which the content display area 510 and the address bar display area 511 are displayed on the operation display unit 211, as shown in FIG.

  Thus, in the information processing apparatus according to the second embodiment, the address bar is displayed on the screen of the operation display unit 211. As a result, the user can check the URL address of the WEB server that acquired the content displayed in the current content display area 510.

  Therefore, the user can confirm whether the user is connected to the unintended WEB server by the content acquired from the malicious WEB server when the access restriction to the WEB server is not performed. Thereby, the user can browse the content with peace of mind.

  Next, when it is determined in step S604 shown in FIG. 6 that the value of the access restriction switch 531 is valid (YES in step S604), the process proceeds to step S605. That is, in this case, it is determined that the access restriction to the WEB server by the URL address is not performed.

  In step S <b> 605, the WEB browser 300 determines whether the URL address instructed to access by the user matches the URL address of the access permission address data 308.

  If it is determined that the URL address instructed to be accessed by the user does not match the URL address of the access permission address data 308 (NO in step S605), it is regarded as an unauthorized access and the process ends without performing any processing.

  If it is determined that the URL address instructed by the user matches the URL address of the access permission address data 308 (YES in step S605), the process proceeds to step S606.

  Next, in step S606, the content acquisition unit 301 acquires content from the WEB server at the URL address instructed to be accessed by the user.

  Furthermore, the WEB browser 300 instructs the content analysis unit 302 to analyze the content acquired in step S606 and generate a content display screen. At the same time, the WEB browser 300 instructs the image display processing unit 303 to display the generated content display screen (step S607).

  Further, the screen display processing unit 303 displays the content display screen on the operation display unit 211 via the operation unit output I / F 205.

  Note that a series of processing from step S607 to S608 is equivalent to the processing from step S411 to S412 in the first embodiment described above.

  After the process in step S608, the operation display unit 211 displays a WEB browser screen as shown in FIG. In this screen, only the content display area 520 is displayed, and the address bar is not displayed on the screen.

  If access restrictions are set, only the contents of the WEB server that permits access are displayed.

  In short, in the WEB browser 300, when the acquirable address information storage unit is set to grant access permission to all addresses, the screen created by the address drawing unit is displayed on the display unit. At the same time, when an access permission is given only to a specific address, an address display control unit is provided for controlling the screen created by the address drawing unit not to be displayed on the display unit.

  Therefore, in the information processing apparatus according to the second embodiment, since there is no possibility of displaying the contents of the WEB server that the user does not intend, the user is not distrusted even if the address bar is not displayed. Furthermore, in this information processing apparatus, when access restrictions are set, the content display area 520 can be displayed widely without giving the user anxiety, thereby improving the listability and operability in content display. be able to.

  In addition, this invention is not limited to embodiment mentioned above, Of course, in the range which does not deviate from the summary of this invention, other various forms can be taken.

  The present invention can also be realized by executing the following processing. That is, software (program) that realizes the functions of the above-described embodiments is supplied to a system or apparatus via a network or various storage media, and a computer (or CPU, MPU, or the like) of the system or apparatus reads the program.
