[quote=siria] [quote="slugfiller"]A normal program link to K-Meleon would open the homepage, not "about:blank".[/quote] WRONG. (As so often, you're declaring things that simply aren't true, not just the occasional glitch, and this is exactly my biggest problem with you.) Anyway, I do that since years, and that option even almost jumps at you when you first open the Preferences (that you say you examined so closely). In the middle of the very first pref page that opens, simply check: [b][color=red]"at startup display a blank page".[/color][/b] [quote="slugfiller"]Besides, think, why do you need a "default handler" for "http" at all? All it does is determine which browser opens links from your harddrive, and, by your argument, they are not needed.[/quote] It's incredible with what you come up. But obviously you didn't bother to read me: [quote="siria"]Since nothing at the opened browser will be in any way different from having it opened like everyone else does, by a normal program link or a real [b][color=red]document link[/color][/b].[/quote] This is a simple link to a document, without such a complicated thing you describe here which would include a command line to a specific browser. But what you are complaining about, is that it's a great deficit for you that the browser "only" has a default handler to open DOCUMENTS, but that there's no handler to open a desktop item "about:blank", which means NOTHING, just the browser itself and an empty page. And this everyone else does by adding the program link on desktop or elsewhere. Still, if you would absolutely set something on your desktop to open a "default browser" without opening any page, you could still just create an empty file on the desktop with an ending ".html", there's absolutely no need to have that start with that completely unusual "about:" [quote="slugfiller"]Also, there's the fact that it gives you a big "Do not touch this" warning when you open it.[/quote] LOL! That's for completely clueless users, without any experience with other browsers either, but you're certainly not pretending that this would scare people like YOU off ;-) (nor me of course :P) [quote="slugfiller"]Besides you can't deny that the workaround I found is just that, a workaround, i.e. not a solution.[/quote] I've never denied that it's a workaround. We'd be lost without workarounds. What I complain about is that you declare things as "impossible" although they are feasable, whether that's now 100% professional and offered in an option GUI or not. Tricky or not, it works, the browser is ABLE to do it.[/quote]
