Software News   Software News : OWB 3.5 with tabs for AmigaOS
   posted by ssolie on 30-Jan-2009 21:59:13 (4655 reads)
Grab the latest OWB 3.5 and enjoy some modern web browsing on your Amiga. It already works great with Google maps for example.

Read more for details...


3.5 (30.1.2009)
- Updated to SVN revision 819.
- Added support for double and triple clicks.
- The page title, status bar, javascript requester and context menu
texts are converted to the local charset now.
- When opening a window the screen is put to front now.
- Added CONTEXTMENURMB tooltype.
- Fixed problems with the popup menus if more than one window is open.
- Implemented closing windows from javascript.
- Windows opened from javascript can set the window position and size
now.
- Implemented javascript prompt requester.
- Fixed "stop" context menu item.
- Implemented copying images to the clipboard.
- Implemented saving and loading searches (input type="search").
- Added workarounds in the AmigaOS 4.x keyboard event handling to match
other platforms, for example Facebook chat and Google suggest work
now.
- ARexx commands are executed for the last opened window instead of the
first one now.
- Implemented support for tabs, to use tabs instead of windows the
tooltype TABS has to be enabled.
- Added support for a different start page, tooltype STARTPAGE, if you
want to use a different page on startup than the home page. Use
STARTPAGE=about :blank for an empty page.
- Implemented text shadow.

And best of all, no bounties were required!

Yeah, well, AROS doesn't have ReAction, so they have to make do.

Do you still believe there is something like IB3 coming? At least in a regular user's lifetime?

JOERG!

You just made owb so much more useable! :D
A proper bookmark menu, a password manager (or whatever it is that remembers passwords, cookies?), and downloads, and i am ready to ditch IBrowse. :D
The contect menues are so much nicer to use now.
Thank you!

BTW, what are you planning to implement next?
What can we expect?

@Thread

The default tooltypes included in OWB 3.5 icon are:-
Quote:
(HOME=http://amigans.net/)
(SEARCH=http://google.com/search?q=%s)
(SEARCH=http://exalead.com/search/results?q=%s)
(MINFONTSIZE=9)
(FONTXDPI=84)
(FONTYDPI=84)
(UNICODEFONT=Bitstream Cyberbit)
(WINDOWLEFT=0)
(WINDOWTOP=0)
(WINDOWWIDTH=1024)
(WINDOWHEIGHT=768)
(CONFIRMQUIT)
(PUBSCREEN=OrigynWebBrowser)
(BOOKMARKCOMMAND=OWBAddressBook/AddressBook -%s)
(COOKIES=PROGDIR:cookieCollection.txt)
(FONTKERNING)
(FONTHINTER=3)
(CONTEXTMENURMB)
TABS
(STARTPAGE=about :blank)

So if you updated, via AmiUpdate or OS4depot, just extract to ram: and paste across the required tooltypes.

The context-sensitive-menu for the right mouse button (needs tooltype added) is really nice. Finally easy to open a link in a new window/tab.

Now if he'd just add "Grab and Drag" style scrolling like NetSurf, AmiPDF (and Firefox with the "Grab and Drag" add-on), I wouldn't find scrolling so annoying...
