we need to make an alias pack, complete with icons, for all of these htmlview things.
I'll try to make some when I have more time. What is the latest guideline for the format? (I think I've asked that before but I didn't find that thread now. It would be good if that was made a sticky in the FARR forum part)
When an alias uses htmlview to display non-local pages then an option to use the related website's favicon would make sense (maybe FARR could download a copy of the favicon the very first time the alias runs?)
re: greasemonkey-ish functionality: maybe in the form of a regexp field in the alias setup window where we can specify what in the html to filter out (or alternatively "filter in") before it is displayed?
kartal: I can see the point of custom FARR window resizing and I bet mouser will implement some support for that. But I'm also unsure how useful the very large sizes would be. For large size pages a regular browser is better. FARR can really excel as a browser complement for small pages that load fast, have a specific focus and are used briefly but repeatedly. Like checking the time, the tv schedule, some RSS feed, a weather report, a todo list and so on. Its the same niche that I think projects like Prism
have tried to fill.
Also, good idea with ip checking! Here is an even simpler page:
