    Hello,
    sorry to keep all of you waiting so long for updates :P
    In a couple of weeks I should be back home from China, so I'll have my wii back to make tests on.
    In the meantime it may be better not to use the latest versions
    that are quite unstable and roll back to revisions like 70 or so.

    Anyone got 102 compiled? It's been a while, eager to see improvements. :)

    Revision 102 only contains a fix for GIF images that was causing a crash on some pages
    however you don't need to compile it, just set the AutoUpdate setting to "Nightly"
    and you will be notified of the update.

    EDIT
    Rev103 effectively adds something new:
    if the app crashes while browsing, the page history is restored the next time
    (seems this feature was needed, I wonder why :D)

    Still working on this.. I'm not sure when the new engine will be ready.
    In the meantime enjoy the new updates: the next revision will add the possibility
    to import/export favorites from/to other browsers and may finally fix the
    random crashes you have experienced.

    I think I would be cool if it had online flash game abilities. You know, so we cold play super Mario crossover the wii.

    but you know, I'm just drooling over the fact of me downloading file without going back to the computer. *lol*

    gave92 Request: would it be possible to give argument support or make a mod that would directly load a url (such as one that would result in a download)and have a selected download folder, and then once the download is finished boot back to the loader?

    Imagine browsing through wiiflow and seeing previews of themes, source menus, and other bells and whistles, hitting play on one and having it downloading a theme directly to wiiflow/themes and then using it immediately after!

    Something similar is already in it:
    just add <arguments><arg>pagetoload</arg></arguments>
    to the meta.xml file in the apps/wiibrowser/.
    "pagetoload" can be:
    1. a page url (e.g "http://www.google.it/")
    2. "homepage" to load the homepage
    3. "bookmark_x" to load the x-th favorite (e.g "bookmark_4")
    Sorry no known way to do this, only (in the future) flash videos (i.e youtube..)
