The standard eclipse welcome page is displayed in its own site which is
maximized by default (and too small back at normal size). I would like to place the welcome page in the editor area, so that the user can read the contents of the welcome page while being aware of what the workbench looks like. To achieve this, i need to use the editors site as container for the welcome page. How can i do this?

I found a potential solution for this at the following link

I can use PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getBrowserSupport().createBrowser( ) method to
show the welcome page in the internal web browser. I haveto specify
IWorkbenchBrowserSupport.AS_EDITOR as style.
However I have to specify a browser id for this API. Any one has an idea what should be the value of the browser-id?
Also, I assume we need to follow it up with a call to openURL().
Is that right? If so, what should be the value of the URL.

I am using eclipse's standard welcome page. So, please suggest the values assuming eclipse's standard welcome page.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
