a set of bugreports from ALTLinux
A few bugreports for Skipstone have been filed,
perhaps some of them will be new to you. (Or another interface to the set of bugs (http://sisyphus.ru/srpm/Sisyphus/skipstone/allbugs).)

Thank you for your work on the browser, I hope it keeps being developed!

Regrads,
Ivan.

My skipstone doesn't find the pixmaps

when I execute my skipstone, it doesn't find the pixmaps,
they are at /usr/local/share/skipstone/pixmaps/default.


anyway I was looking for a light browser and whithout icons its even more light.


actually it acomplished all my expectations, great rendering and extremely light.
i rated 9, i could rate it 10 if I had icons.

Convert webpages to PDF Documents
I'm offering my webpage to pdf convrsion utility to all of the browser projects and would love it if Opera accepted. I've built a online file conversion engine which takes public webpages, changes them to pdf docuiments and then e-mails the pdf document to the end user. A running copy can be found at www.2convert.com.

If you want it, let me know.

Re: Nice browser but...
OK, I'll add the minimum font size requirement directly to skipstone :)

I'll give it a try, only that it should be for all windows, to minimize the need for handwork..

Even better would be a feature to make it possible to set a "minimum text size" ie. text would have size set by author but not below the minimum size.

Have you tried the Zoomer plugin? It doesn't allow you to set per page, but you can set it per skipstone window/tab.

If I have time I might even check for that myself.
Another thing that might be useful (and I might try doing
that my self too) would be to set a text-scaling ratio ie. for example multiply all font sizes by 1.2 or 1.5 or something.

Mozilla allows one to do it but you have to set it for each page separately. An option to set that as permanent would be nice, since people web page designers seem to like 6pt fonts that are impossible to read if you have a resolution big enough to allow you have something else but full screen browser..
(1600x1200 on 19" is a good example, still even 1280x1024 is impossible to read without going close to monitor..)

Actually SkipStone has this feature inherited from mozilla, its just that you have to enable it from the options (Remeber Signons) Also, there was a problem with it which will be fixed in the next release (The fix is in CVS now)

That one involves getting session history from mozilla which is quite hefty on memory, a lot of people wanted this and that is exactly the reason that plugins exist in SkipStone, someone could write a back/forward buttons replacements with session history in them - Then the user can hide the original skipstone buttons. If I have time I might write the plugin myself :)

Nice browser but...
If I could have to things added to skipstone... well one would be ablity to remember web passwords (preferably the way mozilla does it)... and another would be ability to go back more than one document at a time (maybe rightclick to back button could give a menu ?)...

Otherwise quite nice..
