And if we are talking about rekonq I found small bug. Text size is too small by default (go to kde.org for instance).

So I tried to change values via Font settings dialog but, this didn't helped ... settings didn't save.

That's a terrible bug :-( Really sorry about that. I'm currently working to let setting dialog shine (read, do its bad work..)

wish:
- adblocking

bugs:
- when using a dark theme, the address bar uses a light color for the fonts (probably the system color), which is good. The search bar does not and uses a dark font, which makes it unreadable with a dark theme

thanks:
- well, good work!

...is it possible to use another font size but the system font size. When I change font settings in rekonq nothing happens - rekonq still using the system font size.

But: it's a really fast browser. Thanx for that work!

This is a really nice and a very promising project. I believe that if it keeps growing it will certainly become a serious alternative to konqueror.
There are some things I consider very important for any browser I use nowadays:
- Bookmarks sync with multiple web browsers. I would certainly prefer a Xmarks/Foxmarks plugin since it really helps you syncing different computers. I really miss this feature whenever I use konqueror or opera in kde :S
- Password storage. Must have for a good browser, I believe it would be possible to have kwallet integration with rekonq for password storage.

Thanks a lot for developing this browser.

Nice browser!
But there is one problem that I have:
When I want to create a bookmark, rekonq buggers me about being unable to save to ~/ .kde/share/apps/konqueror/bookmarks.xml.
This is a problem with an hardcoded path, I guess, since my distribution still uses ~/.kde4 as kde's standard configuration path.

Oh, and some feature suggestions:
* Can you please add support for Open Search in rekonqs Search bar? It really is a big help for fast adding of Search Engines and, in my opinion, more convenient than Konquerors way of having to search through a big list of predefined Search Engines.
* I like Firefox's way of adding bookmarks by clicking on a star icon in it's URI bar. Maybe you could adopt that. Other browsers seem to have done that, too, like Google Chrome or Microsoft Evil Browser 7.

yeah..the hardcoded path. I'm fixing this now to search in more places.
Your idea about Open Search is pretty good. I'll try to implement, perhaps this summer.. ;)
The star icon in the urlbar (and the loading color, and different colors for different schemes) will come when rekonq will be quite stable..

I've updated rekonq and it now recognizes my .kde4 path. :)

I know, its not your responsibility, but sadly, there are a lot of problems with keditbookmarks, which somehow damage the browsing experience with rekong. I really hope, someone will work on that in the future.

When the history is empty, the removeItem(0) crashes the program. Here's the patch:
(not really the patch, diff is behaving strangely today)

This 'holds water' until you fix the code properly.

94 // FIXME simple hack to show Icon in the urlbar, as calling changeUrl() doesn't affect it
95 insertUrl( 0 , urlIcon , url );
96 if (count() > 1) {
97 removeItem( 1 );
98 }

BTW, why don't you place the code under SVN (KDE's or SourceForge) so that people could join the fun?

Thank you, Ivan. I just apllied your patch. I'm going to move code from gitoriuos to kde playground in these days.

In the "Help"-menu " in "About rekonq" there is a wrong URL (http://rekonq.soourceforge.net) - think, this is the right one: http://rekonq.sourceforge.net/ ;)

And, is it possible to choose another font size but the system font size.

Greetings

hy, rekonq is really a great work.

pherhaps you can include to "small" features:
- show/hide menubar (for netbooks)
- hide tabbar with only one tab open (for netbooks)
- maximum tab width

Ok, notz. But now I'm going to release 0.0.4 version with a lot of news. So you'll have them in 0.0.5 (next month). Promised.

hi, Qt 4.5 is out, waiting eagerly for rekonq 0.0.4. Please try to bring in java runtime plugin support. thanks a lot. Happy coding :D

Report

using kde 4.2, rekonq 0.03 (compiled from source), qt 4.4 (kubuntu 8.10)

1. URL, is prefixed with $HOME

When I type say "www.yahoo.com" it is changed to "/home/rizvan/www.yahoo.com" and nothing happens.

but, when i type "http://www.yahoo.com" it works.

So, the problem seems to be with URL prefix (http:// is not prefixed instead $HOME is prefixed).

The above was not a problem with 0.02.

2. Text font Size is not respected:

When i change font sizes, the "Apply" button remains "Disabled/inactive"

default font sizes are small, perhaps, Qt or reKonq is not respecting "display DPI resolution" which is "120dpi" on my monitor.

thanks.

Hi,

first thanks for that new browser!
I can confirm those two bugs and I want to add another one: if you open a new tab, focus is not on the box for the URL.

this could be the lightweight alternative to konqi.

The Interface is soo much nicer.
Great work.

Why don´t you put it in KDE SVN in the playground module?

I will do it when I will be sure I can manage my code with git svn!!
Perhaps after next release where I'm going to change main application class (singleton app) and add plugins support.

Hi, I have compiled reKonq with qt 4.5rc1, but still there's *no* flash and especially *no* Java applets with rekonq 0.0.2

though Arora 0.42, when compiled with qt 4.5rc1, works with "flash" but not java applets.

thanks.
