Todd Ditchendorf keeps on pushing with Fluid, the Single Site Browser system that does so much more by giving you rich integration points. Ben and I demonstrated how we use Campfire as a Fluid application that ties us into Growl and more.
The latest version includes the following new features:
Single Window Browsing Mode (General Preferences). Actually this is more correctly called â€œTargetedLinksCreateTabsâ€ and means that any website which attempts to spawn a new browser window will create a new tab in the current window instead. The user may still create new windows with cmd-N.
True Full Screen Browsing Mode. cmd-opt-F. (Window menu -> Toggle Full Screen Mode)
Change to Embedded SSBs. Now they can be made to obey your â€œSpaces Behaviorâ€ preference (appear in all or not). This is cool cuz you can set a different Embedded SSB in each Space for a different background in each. Unfortunately, this means that by default Embedded SSBs donâ€™t work with Expose quite the way I have demonstrated. However, you can reclaim that Expose behavior by changing the Spaces Behavior setting to â€œWindows Appear in All Spacesâ€
Thumbnail Plug-in: Significantly improved load time/UI response time performance, when refreshing the current page to reload the thumbnails, the selected index is preserved, and adding built-in URL Pattern for Microsoftâ€™s live.com search engine.
Also, I noticed a screencast that Todd did, showing TinyURL integration that gives you a context-menu to do what I just did with Endpoint, it resolves the URL for you. Very nice indeed. I was going to do a bookmarklet for it myself.
