0.86/Browse

From Sugar Labs
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

The Browse activity is based on XULRunner the Mozilla runtime package. It does provide the user with nearly the same functionality that Firfox offers but tries to be clear and simple UI wise given the target audience. It also offers collaboration as one of it's main features.

What is new for users

Right click palettes have been improved with clearer text and icons. Keeping a file to the Journal now uses its file name as the Journal entry (the full download URL is placed in the description metadata), and uploading files to web servers also now uses the title, along with MIME logic for deciding a file extension (if no valid extension is provided in the title).

Right click palettes have been improved for clearer easier use.

Martin Langhoff has been adding functionality to authenticate with the Schoolserver. When registered with the server an HTTP Cookie is created to ease the use of services on the Schoolserver in future sessions.

Thanks to Daniel Drake Browse propagates the current locale now. This helps to use web services and pages in your mother language. Try it out with the addons page for example.
