Web Page Viewer Plugin (IE, Gecko)

Post by stepand76 » 23 Jan 2010, 18:12

Web Page Viewer is a plugin for viewing web pages. Unlike IEViewer plugin, supplied with Altap Salamander, it supports standard keyboard shortcuts for navigation between files (Space, Backspace, etc.) and supports Gecko (Mozilla) kernel.

Plugin is available here:

You can discuss the plugin in this thread.

Any comments, suggestions and feature requests are welcome.

I installed it a couple of days ago and while I like it (and truly appreciate the efforts you took!) I would like to ask that you give us some way to find text within displayed pages, since lack of it makes this plugin simply a no-go (it could be as simple as Ctrl+F, but surely Find-As-You-Type would be just awesome). Another feature I'd like to see is possibility to change size of text, preferably by Ctrl+/Ctrl- keys. Oh, and please add mouse wheel support!

I hope these are reasonable requests and won't be too troublesome to implement. Please keep up the good work!

It is planed. Little explanation: Unlike the IE kernel the Gecko kernel is *just* a renedering kenel, not a browser. It means that many features (zoom, search, local menu, toolbars, etc) I must develop myself. It require some time. Please donate (if you can't wait) or be patient. Thanks.

Very odd. I'm sure that mouse wheel worked. Now I see that it doesn't. Will be fixed!

Yes, it's odd indeed, as I'm positive today I've found one document (where was that?) in which it actually worked--I mean in Gecko, as in IE it works OK.

Thank you very much and please keep up the good work. :D

Do you think it would be possible to add support for mhtml and maff file formats?
There's already a plugin for Firefox which adds this functionality (Mozilla Archive Format).
Maybe you could instruct Gecko to use this plugin somehow.
