Back again with a little more information for anyone whom is so inclined to read it...
I have been programming all day (including in class
) and have the whole thing almost done. Still, anything anyone wants to see added in, changed, reviewed, etc can feel free to contact me. Anyways, here is what I have accomplished (in addition to the above post)...
- Added all images in (some are not properly positioned yet, but it is almost done)
- Added credit where credit is due for those of you that are active here on this topic/have helped me in any way (see your DonationCoder name in the About tab soon!)
- Fixed code more (I seem to find a problem/something that could be better every time I get ready for a new update, but thats a good thing (right?))
- Added some memory-saving features
- SmartBrowse (integrated web browser) is now fully-functional (more on this below)
- Looked over most features for bugs, everything looks good so far
- Repositioned some things in the GUI (ex: buttons are now 8 pixels below one another, groupboxes are 5 pixels away from each other, etc)
- Added bold text on the SystemCare "Execute Commands" button, as well as bold/underlined "thank you" note on About tab.
So, its not a lot, but progress is progress!
(Speaking of progress, I need that loading bar too!)
Now, about this SmartBrowse...
How it started:
I was fiddling around on the Autohotkey website (http://www.autohotkey.com/
) and I am always on the hunt for new, cool things to add. I love adding new things
. But I stumbed on a page giving instructions on adding a webpage into a GUI. I read through about 3 pages of information (and understood about 1/2 of it) before copy/pasting and editing to test out how this all worked.
About a week later, I redid about 75% of the code, and tested it out. 3 weeks later, I have a fully functional web browser that is now added to SnapSuite.
What it is:
It is totally functional (personal data handling capabilities are unknown as of this time, however you CAN login to websites, so cookies are working) EXTREMELY bare-bones web browser. It loads pages, goes back, forward, stops, reloads, goes home, and...thats about it. It closes too!
It is meant for the person who doesn't want any (and I mean ANY, even the navigation bar is hidden) bars, addons, or other crap in their way. It maximizes screen real-estate and gives a really interesting twist on a web browser in the days of litterally pages of addons and options to do "anything you want" on the web.
Summary of SmartBrowse:
It goes, it works, and thats all it was designed to do. It browses and does what you tell it, and thats all. It also does not have a tabbed interface, this may be added later, but I am not sure.
(Personally, I still use Firefox, but I do open SmartBrowse myself if I am testing new code and need to check something on the web.)
As stated above- ideas/feedback welcome!
