I know nothing about Backstreet Boys other than the name. As you might guess from my Avatar I prefer real improvised jazz to marketing manufactured musicians.  Even so it is tough to keep up. The good local jazz station that played real jazz overnight 7 days a week went belly up 7 or 8 years ago.  It's too much of a pain to try to listen to streaming for more than a few tunes.  Seems like it always glitches out when music is on.  I haven't kept up on what's transpired since the "cool jazz influenced" phase. Seems like to get published a musician had to water it down to elevator compatibility.

I'll get back into it when I get bored messing with video.

But, yeah, whatever pill that artist was taking probably wasn't purchased with a prescription. :)

Heh. I guess you're right. I have to look on line. See if I can volunteer for a Hash Brownies for the Homeless charitable organization.  :)

Hi Miles, did you see this? (Minus the big smiley)
Is it possible to get a feature on BBSS that batch prints each tab into a PDF with the same title as the tab title?

I have no experience with PDF files. I think it's beyond the scope if the utility.

Hmm, I thought it would be easy, as it scans through the tabs, just hit a Control-P just like any other printer. The only difference is I'd just set the Adobe PDF Printer as the default printer. Will it do that?

I'm not going to sit doing macros that you could do. If you don't want to use ahk then get a user level macro tool that clicks the mouse and presses the keys for you.  There's plenty of free ones out there. Check the big download sites.

Well okay, sorry to bother you. Just another case of end users not knowing how the great black box of software works. I've done user-macros before with click-keystroke-click-keystroke, but they're all static, like being "hardcoded". So if I made one that printed 10 tabs it would croak when faced with 11. I was hoping to tap into the dynamic loop you built.

Then I suggest trying some basic AHK_L. It's not rocket science. If you can do a batch file you can do AHK_L and rip your hair out with the rest of us. :)

The included BBSS has been updated to work with Opera.  See Readme.txt revisions for usage note.

I am modifying the ini file. But i can't because seems that the program only can manage six browsers.

It's possible configurate 8 or more ?

Best Regards

BrowserBunch is implemented in AutoIt3.  I have stopped doing au3 development.  I intend to do virtually all Hotkey type programs in AHK_L or some AHK variant.  As current au3 programs lose relevance they will be retired.

I like the structure of AutoIt3 but the hotkey functionality is just too limiting for my purposes.

In any case when I was forced to move Au3 source code was lost.  For small utilities such as these it's just not worth the effort to reconstruct the missing pieces.

You might try something that makes it easy to do a drop down list.  Then you could always add more.  What's the limit with Browser Chooser?

Any Windows scripting that does Gui Windows and controls.  You might look here to start:
http://www.thefreecountry.com/compilers/

A Drop Down Box has the advantage you would not have to change the Gui it is in once you got it working.  Adding more items just lengthens the list.  You could have the default or most used at the top.  To use a different browser select from the drop down list.  Reading from a text file a line at a time should be pretty easy in most scripting languages.  Therefore I'd look for something that makes it very easy to make the Gui Window or Dialog.

There's both compilers and scripting languages there.  Not as much free as for Linux.  But still a good selection.

Sorry.  But I can't make commitments as I have PERT tests to prepare for.  It's been a long time since school.  I'm just starting to get an idea how much I've forgotten.

Don't worry Miles. Good luck with PERT tests.
I am studying now too : the compilers

Btw I don't think you need to run virtual machines to run two instances of BrowserBunch..  Just copy everything to another folder.  Change the .ini to have up to 6 different browsers. Just make shortcuts that point to each BrowserBunch.
