paul@42 5 TazWeb is a radically simple and very light web browser providing a single
pankso@71 6 window with one small bottom toolbar using buttons, an URL and search entry
pankso@71 7 and a contextual menu but no menubar or tabs. Please keep the code simple
pankso@71 8 and clean, if you are motivated and want to add some functionnalities, please
pankso@71 9 talk to the AUTHOR before commiting anything in the repos.

paul@42 11 TazWeb uses a custom page in the user Freedesktop directory to let users add
paul@42 12 any content to it and get with one click from the toolbar. We may have
paul@42 13 an external apps/script to handle that file for users who can't manage to
pankso@38 14 edit pure xHTML.

paul@31 16 This application have been created for Tazpanel and future SliTaz integrated
paul@31 17 Web applications. The goal is by far to have a fully-featured web browser. But
paul@31 18 if you find a way to provide a simple plugins mechanism, that would be great.

paul@31 20 The idea with TazWeb is to have a minimal interface, the approach is to
pankso@15 21 build all the GUI with xHTML and CSS like in TazPanel.

pankso@0 23 For general and end-user documentation have a look at doc/tazweb.html.
paul@31 24 TazWeb is published, like webkit source under a free BSD license.

pankso@71 26 BUG: Right clicking on "Open Link in New Window" is connect to a event
pankso@71 27 but doesn't work.

pankso@44 41 ------------
pankso@44 42
pankso@44 43 * To get the filename of a WebKitDownload
pankso@45 44 file = webkit_download_get_suggested_filename (download);
pankso@44 45
pankso@44 46 * Check mime-type before download (needs a callback function)
pankso@44 47 g_signal_connect (web_view, "mime-type-policy-decision-requested",
pankso@44 48 G_CALLBACK (mime_type_decision_cb), web_view);
pankso@44 49
pankso@45 50 * Get user config directory path in $HOME
pankso@71 51 config = g_strdup_printf ("%s/.config/tazweb", g_get_home_dir ());

pankso@71 54 static gchar *useragent = "TazWeb/1.0 (X11; Linux; U; en_US) AppleWebKit/531.2+";
pankso@71 55
pankso@71 56 /* User agent */
pankso@71 57 WebKitWebSettings *settings;
