[X] - Signed.

Chruker's contributions to the overall playability through his IGB accessible databases have been invaluable help to my in my EVE experience. I don't know much about how the functionality works, but I support any motion to improve it.

SIGNED. The IGB needs programmer love badly.

They should abandon the IGB completley and get a third party browser as a plugin. Something small like Opera or Chrome (opera works on game consoles and cell phones so why not inside another program?)

Don't reinvent the wheel. Ditch the IGB. Expend developer effort on something more useful.

IGB needs to get its performance issues fixed, the delays and high page renderings are a real thumbs down for any IGB website.
It would also be awesome if it could be improved in capabilities (as in: being able to transport more ingame info to websites, extend HTML support etc).

I was waiting until after the QR 1.0.2 patch to see if they fixed the rendering speed issues as well as form fields, but to me, it just seems to have gotten slower. In the absence of any information about this "new thing" they are supposedly replacing the IGB with, I just hope that some fixes are implemented to the current IGB in the meantime.

Very much signed, the IGB is critical to half the things I do in EVE.

I don't care if they add anything new to the browser, but just make it work as is. For some unknown reason, even a page with one line of text on it will take ages to load, making it virtually un-usable as it is.

For those who would rather ditch it, or replace it with an open source browser, I think you are missing the point of the IGB. It's not the rendering of normal pages it was made for, but the ability to interact with the game. You can determine the exact player who is viewing the page, give hotlinks to in game items or to send money, find players location, etc.

Show you mission briefings, agent interaction... it's all done using IGB engine.

My vote is no.. I personally see no need to prioritise the IGB at all. A simple ALT-TAB gives me access to some rather well developed web browsers out there already.

It's a nice thing to have.. yet by no means a necessity. As such, I would rather they prioritised other areas for improvement / correction.

I do think the cleaning up of the financial system, bailout of the 3 auto giants, and a return to a robust economy will occur first.

one wonderful thing about the currently igb is that its so damn secure by being featureless :)

But i would imagine with the Cosmos 2.0 integration the IGB will be getting an overhaul anyways and im sure CCP already know it needs work so, not signing :P

I would love just better/more predictable performance. Also, some more useful in-game interaction would be nice. (How about the ability to drag items to a web text box, and it pastes a quantity-item list in the box instead of just a list of item names. This would allow for some very useful corp sites.

My site looks pants in the IGB ( BTW) and all I use are standard formats.

To all those saying "dump the IGB" and similar....

Get over yourselves!

Just because you don't use it, don't spoil it for the rest of us who do. The very fact that you don't use it (or see the point in it) means that it doesn't affect you in any way! So please stop being so selfish and quit with the pointless IGB bashing.

The IGB is very useful for things like Fleet and Member Trackers, In-Game Forums, Basic news pages for your corporation, recruitment information pages and many other things. Removing it entirely would cripple the online operations of many corporations.

The bugs I want to see fixed most are:
1) The eve.trustme header doesnt seem to work anymore, so people have to add trust manually.
2) If you add to the list of trusted sites, the IGB adds a / to the end so it becomes in the trusted sites list. Then if you visit (without the final slash), it doesn't match against the entry in the trust list and so doesn't get trust. You have to manually add a / to the end of the typed URL or specific a filename (like index.cfm) on the end.
3) When you go to any page, the IGB sits there blank for 2-4 seconds before even starting to load the page.
4) Rendering speed of tables is slow!
