Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

It is not a bug in the javascript code but in the javascript bindings which are written in C. Usually reproducible segfaults are easy to fix, so a backtrace would be very helpful.

Edit: the scripting javascript execution context is completly seperated from the web execution context, so it is not possible to crash the browser from a script on a webpage, but of course this needs to be fixed.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Oh ok, I misunderstood then. I'll post a backtrace later today, little busy right now.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@Army: I could reproduce it on your band's homepage, i fixed one bug but it would be nice if you could confirm that it is also fixed for you.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Alright, great! Just wanted to do the backtrace, but seems like you solved it. It didn't crash anymore. I'm just glad that I'm doing the new homepage (although I'm not very talented in webdesign), which requires almost no javascript (only for the media).

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey, I just wanted to say this is a really cool little browser. Saw someone mention it on irc, and I've been playing around with it. It's gonna take a little getting used to, but it feel really polished.

Great work!

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

When opening a link in a new tab in the background where the link contains an anchor (e.g., http://example.com/somelink.html#someanchor), it seems like the anchor is usually not respected; usually when I switch to the tab, I am at the bottom of the page, whereas I expect to be at the anchor. Is this just me?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Same problem here, mentioned it a couple of pages back in this thread. It doesn't always fail, but it definitely doesn't work in this forum! This has to be a dwb issue, because luakit didn't have this problem when I tested it. I think this one might be worth a bugreport, because portix already answered and said, that it works fine for him. The question is, what are we doing wrong? And since this thing is really annoying, I think this problem should have been mentioned a lot more often here. So I guess we might be in the minority sad

I can't confirm this: I use thunderbird to read my mails and when I click a link on the notification emails for this thread, I'm always taken to the correct post.

But I can confirm that it happens on a lot of other sites, although I can't name one right now and sometimes it is really annoying… so yes, maybe a bug report would be the right thing!

That works for me too, but if I control-click on a link from a forum page to open it in a new tab (and I have new tabs set to open in the background), it doesn't go to the anchor.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi
Why I get so ugly fonts on Github? http://ompldr.org/vZnc1ZA
I setup Ubuntu font in settings, but only on Github it doesnot apply.

Thanks for your reply. I found solution - I just install ttf-freefont and fonts are ok.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Is there a way to download video from a web page (such as putlocker for example) and a web page?
Thanks in advance.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@rix, what is it that doesn't work? As far as I can see putlocker is a one-click-hoster, right? Downloads should work just fine.

Sure, if you're a premium user.
BTW Putlocker was just an example.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Is it possible to focus a frame with the keyboard?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@ Baabelfish:
I think you'd accomplish that by use arrow keys as you're selecting text. You've to enable it in the settings page thou.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I should add a hinting mode for selecting frames, but currently it is not possible.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@ portix:
It'd be nice if you'd also add a way to select more links in hinting mode (i.e.: <;b> then hint1,hint2,hint3...hintn).
And what's about videos?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@rix: there is already a shortcut for it (;r). It is not possible to implement hints for flash-videos, i'm not sure if it's possible for html5 videos but i don't think that it's possible.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

There is no general way to get the video url of a flash video, only website dependent hints would be possible. You can use one of the url-grabbing tools like youtube-dl or quvi to download flash videos.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey all. Portix, thank you for your awesome work! dwb has quickly become my favorite web browser. However, there is essentially one thing that's keeping me from uninstalling firefox; Google+ Hangouts don't work yet. I noticed a user a while back with this same issue, but I never saw a solution found.

Tl;dr: Has anyone figured out how to run Google+ Hangouts (I have the plugin from the AUR installed already)?

All the best,

-HG

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@portix

I just did an upgrade where I was prompted to replace libwebkit with webkitgtk2(testing repo), and afterwards dwb-hg would not render webpages anymore, and just displayed an empty white screen instead...

I then removed webkitgtk2 and installed back libwebkit, and it again worked...

Just a headsup...

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@mhertz, maybe you have to rebuild dwb with webkitgtk2? I had this update some days ago and had no problems, everything stayed normal. 64bit system here.
