Popup windows support and improved speed dial

A lot of things have happened in Git, so I'd like to sum it up for you.

Speed Dial
Thanks to Mladen Pejakovic's work, it is now possible to change background image, number of dials in row and also width of dials. It can be now personalized to look great on every monitor size.

Popup windows
QupZilla now supports opening popup windows from javascript method. After Konqueror with KWebKitPart, QupZilla is the second QtWebKit browser that currently supports it (correct me if I am wrong).
So what does this means to user? Instead of opening new tab, new popup window will be opened when the site requests it.
You can, for example, open chat window with your friends from Google's Gmail.

Improved icon
Thanks to Sergio Cipolla's work, QupZilla's icon has now rounded corners and relief. I think it really looks better than the older one :-)

Next version, containing all these goodies, will be probably released in February.

  1. Hey there,

    I'm missing tabs in the speed dial. It begins scrolling, when there's no space left. oO And with many sites inside it gets pretty crowded ....

    Any chance I'd see tabs in near future? =)
