Running long uptimes here, often no power-downs or reboots over months, several popular tabs seem to accumulate, which allow for easy site re-visits, day after day.

Please, if possible, add a save current tabs menu item, an ask for restore of last saved session at launch, or perhaps the luxery version with a last saved 10 sessions list to chose from.

rgds,

That's great in terms of stability, but I think you are probably in
the minority who leave their Amigas switched on 24/7. I'd be too
scared that I'd be wearing mine out!

This is certainly under consideration for a future release. However,
in the meantime, I'm sure it is possible to implement this using
IBrowse's ARexx interface. IIRC, I think somebody already released a
script somewhere that can save/restore browser tabs.

Can anybody help me remember? ;)

He's not the only one - mine's been on 24/7 for years! Having said tha, I do close programs down when I've finished using hem.

How about an option to have more than 1 browser opened at startup, as in Internet Explorer? Maybe open up to 10 "home pages" at launch?


Bye for now,
