3 Priority Features for next version Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
1) URL AutoComplete Options : I've asked for this for well over 4 years. I need URL AutoComplete to act like Safari. The current system is PITA for me. Example If i type "applei" i want "appleinsider.com" as the first item to be selected from the list. I do NOT want it to be at the BOTTOM of a list of 500+
"forums.appleinsider.com" URL's. If i wanted "forums.appleinsider.com" id type "forums.a"

Firefox has an Addon "AutoComplete Manager" which has the useful options for sorting criteria. Can we not have something similar to this:

2) Offline Mode : iCab,IE, Firefox, Opera has this. If its in cache i want to view it when i have no network such as when Im on a plane.

3) Downloads : An option to have a resizable "status bar" in the main window for downloads to show files names, displaying progress bar and download rate of currently active downloads. It could be vertically resizable to display several lines if multiple downloads are active. The Stop, Stop/Remove from Disk/List, Pause/Resume commands could be assigned to a Key+Click operations, when downloads are complete and option for the status bar to return to its normal size.

This would in some situations make the separate "Downloads" window redundant and of course the download activity could be visible from any tab in a single window session rather than have the Downloads window partially obscured by the main window due to screen size limitations on Laptops.
 
I think the highest priority item I would like to see is focus. OW used to be great for power users - people to whom speed is something more than just how long it takes to load a page.

I would like to see the target audience defined and then have the app cater to that audience. And I would like to know who it is as well. Started using OW because it really helped with web development. As time has gone on, almost no new features have been implemented to help with that and some of the ones that did have gone away.

If the goal is to target people who define speed as how long it takes a page to load, I'd like to know too. I really like the UI in OW, but it seems to be transitioning to this browser that's halfway between power users and general web surfers, thus missing both targets.

Some people want top-tabs, I want image dimensions back in Page Info. Some want OW to always be equal or greater than Safari's web kit, I want cache as a site preference (and, personally, I want that more than an autocomplete change [I REALLY like the way it is now], offline mode or downloads status bar [and really, I think that might be best added to the Dock icon.])
