Software : : Wayfarer 1.5
Posted By: jacadcaps. on 2020/10/27 17:32:55
Wayfarer 1.5 is now available

This version introduces several important features like a startup loader that will show splash windows as the app starts and quits. It will also catch and clean up if the web browser crashes, in most cases making it possible to re-start the application.

An Eruda web console is now integrated in the debug menu. Eruda makes it possible to view the DOM structure of a website, monitor its resources, view and delete cookies and issue commands via the console or a code editor and more. Several plugins are also available and may be loaded on-demand to maintain browsing performance.

Moreover, it is now possible to start Wayfarer from a pre-saved session file or to make automatically restore the previous session.

For a full list of changes and bugfixes, see the update history.

    Forgot to mention: to update, simply unpack the lha and copy ALL of the files in the archive, replacing existing files. Your caches and configuration are safe.

    Very nice that we can now continue the last session directly at start.

    Could it be that 1.5 is slightly faster on a Sam460ex compared to version 1.0 - 1.4? Maybe related to "Reduced the number of SQL file writes" or "Fixed CPU clock detection code"?

    Here's a thing that always bugged me: If a website's visible space exceeds OWB application window, then horizontal bar (at the bottom) appears and you can control it by keyboards' arrow keys "left and right". On Wayfarer, the same bar on the same websites appears but left and right doesn't work (whereas up and dows does). Is this possible to be implemented?

    On a side note, managed to crash (application meditating) latest version by visiting this website (it was also crashing with previous version which I tested a few days ago). whereas on OWB 1.26 works (though not displaying enterily proper). When I tried to re-start Wayfarer I was getting red bar on Ambient and browser didn't re-appear. Is there a log for similar situations which we can send? Feeling nervous to reboot in case any important info resides to ram...

    Edit: Btw tabs' appearance when closing/opening/switching is fixed at least for me :)

    I wasn't able to get it to crash here - it's just extremely slow, unless you disable JavaScript for it. Give it 5 minutes on a G5 and it'll load.

    - Added a file requester to the downloads path in Settings

    Did you plan to add directly a file requester when downloading a file?

    I believe you mean a "Save As" option - which I have already asked jacadcaps about, but this is not an imminent additional feature, but he is aware of it, and is bearing it in mind - on his own already requested / To-Do List

    Hi,

    nice work.
    But I just recognized that Copy&Paste does work on all pages
    (eg. www.a1k.org/forum when I want to answer in a thread I have no paste from clipboard).

    It's also currently also impossible to mark the complete uri in address field (
    key shortcut like ctrl+a or cmd + a)?

    regards

    You don't need to mark the complete url, because you can just copy when nothing is marked and it copies the whole content then.

    But in most cases it is not empty. You need it when you want to copy the address and insert it in another place. And you need it to remove it before copy a new address or you have both addresses in it.

    What I meant is that when you have, for example "https://morph.zone" in the URL string, you can copy it just by right clicking it without marking it anyhow. Marking would just be useless extra work.

    Or if you want to copy it by keyboard, just activate the field but don't mark anything, press cmd/ctrl-c, and you have a copy of the whole string content in your clipboard ready to be pasted elsewhere.

    No, you don't need to remove it. Just use "Edit -> Paste and Go" from the pull-down menu, or press cmd-z for a keyboard shortcut, and then the previous url is removed automatically and the new url is entered.

    Or if you want to remove the previous text manually, just activate the url string (at the end) and press shift-backspace to clear everything. Again, marking would just be more work/presses.

    Copy&Paste hotkeys may not work if the website object doesn't have focus in the window - in that case a different object would handle the key combination. That said, do the context menus work for you for copy/pasting?

    No, context menus do not work either.
    Hotkey for marking the complete uri
    would help, if you want to copy the anywhere else.

    If I'm not mistaken from what others have said, all you need to do is right click in the URL field and then it should be possible to "Copy" the URL (which is automatically all selected and copied) then you just need to "Paste" it wherever you want it to be. This functionality has always (AFAIK) been in OWB anyway, so if it's not working there either then something is probably wrong with your MUI/Ambient settings.

    If you have no context menus then maybe you have not got the option in MUI Settings>Menus>Appearance of "Like System Menus" or "Like popup menus" &/or the "Enable embedded menu bar" options selected, or some other option in Ambient enabled as I cannot understand you not having any right-mouse-button context menus functioning at all - if I understand your issue correctly..

    Yeah, thanks for trying to explain it better, because it seems that my explanation didn't go through or something :) This is a standard MUI feature and it works with all MUI programs.

    And as I already told, you can do the same from the keyboard too, by just activating (without marking) the input string gadget and pressing the standard Copy keyboard combination.

    The standard double-clicking way from the PC world works too, if you absolutely want to mark it for some reason. Keep double-clicking the URL field until it's all marked...

    I'd asked before on if this would work on the Pegasos II.
    Just wanted to say it does work and while it is a bit slow, it's far from being unusable.
    Not really all that slower that Odyssey can be at times.
    Very nice update! I still need to get the passwords over, but it's doing well so far!

    Thank you!
