I should note, this application can be run completely portable right out of the box.  I save NOTHING to the registry or anywhere other than 2 text files contained within the executable folder!

So long as you have URL.txt and Visited.txt in the same folder as RegaLink.exe, you are good to go :)

Quick Update (v0.45):

You can now send none URL's to the browser.  These will automatically be sent to Google. (IE: If you enter "Cheese" instead of a URL, that will then become something RegaLink will send to Google)

* Stephen66515 yawns
Feel free to go play with the new update...I won't release another tonight...I know I have been going crazier than Mozilla with the updates :P

Seriously though...there will probably be a few more tomorrow (or one main one if I feel like it)

If anybody has any feature requests...please lemme know :)

Also, I would love to hear from those who have tried it, about how you use it :) - Also, constructive criticism is welcome/appreciated!  (Well...except for the GUI...I don't care about th GUI at the moment...it is functional, and it looks 'OK?', so, function trumps looks for now xD)

Beta Available:

Visited Links now show up in a column view, meaning thins are much easier to search through :)



This is the final feature that I personally think RegaLink needs (for now)

Once I find there are no bugs, the version will move from 0.48b, to 1.0.  This marks the end of Beta for RegaLink.

Question:

Do you guys prefer the "Pending List" to be shown how it currently does (Double Lined), or how it is in the above image (side scroll, no double spacing).

I could also add an option for you to select between the two (Which I might just go ahead and do)

You may notice V1.0 (The Beta download) is significantly smaller in size (Less than half) that v0.48b.  Don't worry about this.  I have streamlined the code, and reduced the size of the images.

Other than that, everything remains the same!

Yes...tiny app is tiny!

Update v1.0.5 (Beta):

[UI Change]



I think this is a lot nicer to use, now it shows when you added the URL to 'Pending'

Please note:  Beta version may not load any list from before Time/Date feature was added.  You can work-around this (If you have long lists already) by appending (adding) the following to the end of each URL line:

|00/00/0000 00:00:00

This will make your line look like:

Http://www.google.com|00/00/0000 00:00:00

Side note:

Anybody think I should keep the current name?  Or should I change it to something better?

If you have a better name, lemme know!
