Slimbrowser 7 build 003 - Window Controls.

Post by iCORM » Sun Mar 24, 2013 12:34 pm

First of all i would like to say the new browser build is by far the best builds so far. Doesnt feel like beta at all. Keep up the good work. Congratulations on the About.com's Readers Choice Nomination. Good luck.


So coming to the problem, well not exactly a problem but a quirk really. the window controls, i.e. minimize, maximize, and close buttons have a border.

Image

it's sometimes diffcult to close the browser as by default we are used to move the mouse pointer to the extreme corner and just click to close. but now we have to carefuly point it to "x".
So is it possible to increase the button sizes in such a way that they touch the extreme corner. if resizing is not an option then just move them to the extreme corner.


Still testing other features, and so far looks good.

its nothing to do with skins anymore. the window controls are by default your windows explorer controls. there is no title bar anymore, so they are not affected by the skin.

the following is a screenshot with the skin SlimBlue enabled.

you see what i mean. there is a border around the window control buttons even after enabling skin.

so when you go to the extreme right top corner to close you end up clicking on the window border and after few clicks you realise it and then have to carefully click the "x" close button.

There is a new option that controls whether you have a title bar or not when the window is maximized.

If you'd like to see the old behavior, go to Tools->Options->Misc and uncheck the "Hide title bar when maximized" option.

yes, that is an option. but given the fact that the new feature gives you more room/viewable area for the website which is the principle job of a browser. i was wondering if there is any work in progress on this issue with the window controls. it sometimes is frustrating that the browser doesn't close because of this silly issue.

There is always the keyboard option which typically work faster than a mouse "movement and click" once your used to doing the keyboard instead.

Alt, then F, then X
or
Ctrl+F4
