Your “generalist” theories have clearly failed you Sotos, because you are obviously very ignorant of what it takes to write a modern browser.

But of course without any experience how can you know… no surprises there! :roll:

For your info, a modern browser’s page-onload event handler alone; which runs into a few kilobytes of multiple nested child-handlers and their complex logic, would blow your mind away!

And you were suggesting that such things can be achieved with bits and pieces of miscellaneous obsolete Internet snippets? :?

How naïve… which reminds me of the famous Cypriot saying: :)

“Abou en boxo bou don horon xeri bolla traouthkia”

Oh shit… it looks like Dr Generalist will have to download and install yet another Chrome extension to keep up because the Classic browser now opens all online Ms Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files in a browser tab and with the option to save to your hard disk.

Which calls for another Cypriot saying...

"Ella bappou na sou dixo da ambellia sou…"

New v1.9 is now available for download:

* Improved video streaming support both in terms of stream detection and subsequent handling. Easily set up your provider in the Options.

* Extended Multi-Links...

Now you can designate the opening of Multi-links in Tab mode. For example:

Open two links in MF mode : http://abc.com~http://xyz.com

Open two links in Tab mode : !http://abc.com~http://xyz.com

Just by adding an exclamation mark at the front of the URL string.

* Added two more color schemes.

* Restored broken Ecosia favlink.

* Special View from the main menu has been removed as it's no longer needed. Now you can just R-click on elements to hide.

* The first stage of automatic updates has been completed... it'll trigger when v2.0 is out. Detects and prompts to download for now. Set this feature as required in the program's options.

* Some nifty maintenance work carried out.

* Fixed bug in "Add Membership" which would prevent a new membership entry from getting saved if you jumped to another tab and back again; usually to copy a URL or something.

* Added Ms Office support. Now all online Ms Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files will open in a new tab with the option to save to your hard disk.

* Check and update your DirectX via... Main Menu > Browser Options > Miscellaneous Tools > DirectX

That's it for now boys & girls and may my pinkie's force be with you... 8)
