instead of adding a new one)

- 1.14

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.

I have another buggestion:

6. Please make better icons (for its icon and toolbar graphics).

Better icons are a good suggestion.
But: What is "better"?
So i am asking: "What is wrong with the current icons?"

1. I don't know where the settings for Lightweight2 are stored. So, having it use a file to store its settings (named config or similar), would be good.

2. Regarding the progress bar, it should be located above the scroll bar if there is one in its window and have a background (probably grey colored) so it looks nicer.

3. Regarding the url that's shown when hovering over a link, it shouldn't be in its own bar. Instead, it should be shown in the part of the window that shows the webpage.

Do you know where Qt saves the QSettings data on your OS?
If yes: Do you find configs saved by Lightweight2?
I think this problem is OS specific, so my only way to "fix" it, is to save theese data manually in an own file.

The saving of the state of the window is not working for me. Its not maximized when restarting it after maximizing it.

I think your Problem with the icons was caused by using a non oxygen style, wich does dot have hoverfeedback on flat PushButtons.
I changed all Pushbuttons to Toolbuttons to solve that problem. 1.4 will have theeses changes.

1.3 already saves if the window was in maximized state and restores it.

I just thought of another suggestion:

7. It should remember what state its window was in (basically, if its maximized when running, it should stay maximized when restarting it).

It's really cool idea. I like it.
But for me there is one thing could be added and would be useful.
Shortcuts ctrl+t, ctrl+f4, f11 and ctrl+tab

Regarding the suggestion for the addition of keyboard shortcuts, I think that the following ones should also be added:

CTRL + E = Show the Edit URL toolbar
1 = Go to the tab on the right side of the currently selected tab.
2 = Go to the tab on the left side of the currently selected tab.
CTRL + ALT + B = Open the Bookmark Manager window with the option to bookmark the page in the currently selected tab.
CTRL + W = Close the currently selected tab.

Ctrl+E: good idea
1 and 2 : I think Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right are better
Ctril+B already opens bookmarkmanager. So i only need to add the ability in it.
I didn't mention it, but Ctrl+F4 closes the current tab (unless your system uses the yourcut for something else). Changin to Ctrl+W is no prob at all.

The Ctrl + Left/Right shortcut goes back/forward a page, which isn't the same thing as what I'm asking for 1 and 2 to do.

Lightweight2 shortcuts:
Going back/forward: Alt+Left/Right

And comming
Go one tab left/right
Ctrl+Left/Right

So there is no conflict

I think it can be a good idea.
My knowlege about proxies are very low and i have no idea how to support costum procxy in the gui.

Perhaps you can build a proxy-support via a configuration-file.
