Hello,

thank for updating webrender!

How do I open a link in website in a new tab?
Example:
- Open this link http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/WebRender?content=140450
- Do a right click on http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/WebRender?content=140450
- webrender offers "Open Link" and "Open in New Window"
- "Open Link" supposed to open link in same tab
- "Open in New Windows" supposed to open link in new window

Currently both options even do not work for me, nothing happens when clicking on these commands

In a terminal window I see following messages:

Loading finished with error

The directory /usr/src/packages/BUILD/nspluginwrapper-1.3.0/src/ does not exist on my computer.

I am using qt4-4.7.3


Forgot to ask how do I close a tab?

It should be
- Do a right click on http://webrender.99k.org

instead of

- Do a right click on http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/WebRender?content=140450

Thanks.

First of all, thanks for downloading WebRender.I was planned to build a stable version of WebRender, but I met with some problems with the implementation of 'History' in SQL (Error: "out of memory Unable to execute statement"). I lost a major part of my development time. That's why WebRender is now staying in release candidate. I ll implement the right-click context menu for 'Open in new tab' in the next stable release... Cheers ;-)

I think you are using Qt 4.6.x... Please upgrade it to latest Qt and try again. Thank you for your interest in WebRender...

It look as we have the same approach: Making a small webbrowser.
My webbrowser:
http://qt-apps.org/content/show.php/Lightweight2?content=139266&PHPSESSID=13e74d593a427ea928bf8e656293a316
(1.9 should come soon)

Things i have learned from your project:
- QWebInspector
- The private-browsing flag of QWebSettings

Things you can learn from mine:
- Reduce contentsMagins to reduce space wasting
- Write downloaded data to file during the download. Atm you cannnot download big files with WR.
- Blocking plugins (Actually i have learned it from Arora)
- SSL notification and error handling
- Bookmarksystem with folders (I think it would break compatiblity to your system. I had a simple bookmarksystem first too and i had to break compatiblity. I resolved by automatically importing the old ones)
- Disable currently useless nagivgate buttons
- Tab-previews (will be in LW2 1.9)

Remember: It is your project and you don't have to do all the listet things.
Perhaps we can combine our powers.
My approach: Create a small browser that gives a less technical informatin as possbile. It's ment to be usable by normal-people and also gives wished features for advanced users.

very nice, i like the way you implemented your tabs! now there are some more suggestion

* Keyboard shortcuts, it is very important
* a quick button to add and close tabs
* produce error pages( in case of bad network availability, of network, or wrong spelling of the address)
* context menu for the tab bar area.
* and many more thing i will discover...

but i really appreciate it, continue working on it! we'll keep improving it. chrome will hear from it (not a joke)

Hi,

first of all I want to thank you for your SPLENDID WORK!

I am maintaining a small distro in Germany
and would like to include Webrender as an alternate browser.

I have done the German translation but
I am stuck with calling them in Webrender.

Is there any chance to get the sources changed to support translations?

Regards and keep up the good work!

Currently there are many lightweight browsers in the web, but webrender is very fast and usable. Even private browsing is supported.
One thing I miss is tabbed browsing. Will you add this in the future?
