Its not showing most of the favicons of the sites I visit. An example of a site that's not showing its favicon to the left of its name in the tab is http://www.filehippo.com

The Favicon on this page works for me.
The reason why it does not work well for yo could be the problem with QWebSettings::iconForUrl() wich doies not give the wished icon, the first times. For bookmarking i had to use a workaround by saving the icons in an own folder.

I can't confirm your problem.
I think this issue is one of the issues with Qt on OS/2 (Wich isn't supportet by Qt).

Well, there has to be a reason why most of the favicons aren't showing.

There is a port of it for the Pandora (http://www.openpandora.org). You can read a forum post regarding it by going to http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?/topic/58836-lightweight2/

Btw, one of the people who make it might make the port of Lightweight2 the default browser in it.

1. Add the ability to make bookmark folders and store bookmarks in them.
2. Add the ability to give a keyword to the bookmark folder so all of the bookmarks in it will open as tabs.
3. Add a configurable disk cache.
4. Add the ability for it to remember and auto-fill/submit typed usernames and passwords.

1: I will try to find a good way to support bookmark-folders
2: That would require some kind of configuration. I am looking for a better way
3: Would require configuration
4: for this i have to store passwords somewhere -> Not a good idea

3 and 4 does not fit in my concept contentrating on surfing. I dont want to have anything that bothers Lightweight2 itself.

How would 3 and 4 get in the way of surfing? IMHO, they will help make it faster and easier.

Oh, I have another suggestion:

5. Add the ability for it to show the progress of the current page as its being loaded.

1. The storage of theese data are:
Windows: Registry
Unix: Home/.config/
Mac: Uses XML preference files (dont know where they are stored)
For other OS i dont't know where they are stored (That actually the point of using QSettings: Easy access to config without thinking how it is donw)

Is the window always at the Top-Left of the screen, when starting it. Are bookmarks and cookies saved when closing?

Currently i think that QSettings on your OS doesn't store anything. In this case there is a problem on the Qt implementation on your OS.
Does other uses of QSettings work on your OS?

If even bookmarks and cookies are also not saved, then the closeEvent method is not called when closing: This can have several reasons:
1. Closing kills the app.
2. Qt on your OS does not call closeEvent by closing.
3. Methond binding problem (the C++ runtime find the wrong closeEvent). But i can't imangine that.

Sorry for that many questions. I am trying to find out whats wrong.

2. I cant get the height of the scrollbar, or even a info if there is one at all. Since the progressbar is only there while loading, it's not that nasty.
Perhaps i can make it more "intelligent": When going to buttom-left the progressbar goes to button-right, ans vice versa.

3. 1.4 will have the hovered url in the webview integrated. It behaves as it discribed as a proposal for the progressbar.
