I believe that they need to implement / upgrade a better browser. I know it doesnt need to be all that great since it is an IGB, but if it didnt go so slow rendering tables that would be great :)

Yes, please upgrade the IGB. :) I really love that something like this is in the game.

signed. It'd be nice to be able to run the thing at a more functional level instead of the rotting piece of cheese that it is at the moment.

Arrow Put more Hamsters @ work in this IGB.

Posted - 2009.01.13 13:19:00 - [159]

Worst of all. Currently the IGB currently brings my gameplay down, having fps of 0.2 if the site is not answering in time. Have stopped using the IDB in low and 0.0 since it simple spell death now.

Wehn they get tired, let them rest in chairs hooked up to the treadmills others are running on.

Would be nice as there are many wonderful EVE related browser based projects out there..

Hmm, while you're at it, how about an IGB header with some 'cookie' (that is, unique code, linked to the pilot using the igb) with an API function to very that the current 'cookie' for pilot X is <insert code> - This could either be a login session code, or one that changes every hour or so but would certainly help to prevent spoofing an IGB session to gain access to resources that were not intended for use by the person using a proxy to fake an IGB and pilot details.

So yeah, /signed (Sadly, being a developer, I know it's unlikely this will happen any time soon because it's no small task to replace such a deeply routed system but hey, show the love)

Sign this if you want CCP to prioritize the development of a better ingame browser

Development on the ingame browser (IGB) have been neglected for so long.
- For the last 2+ years it has had horrible rendering time on any content with tables.
- It is also rendering tables errornously, especially noticable in the computation of table and column widths.

Now lately it seems to have gotten some very annoying bugs:
- All pages (regardless of content) seems to have some sort of delay (2-3 seconds), making sites very slow.
- Form fields are broken (maybe especially when combined with tables).
- The IGB also fails to construct correct urls for some images in tables.

And while I'm sure most of these bugs have been reported or are least hopefully bugging CCP players during their daily gametime, then I fear that fixing the IGB have so low priority.

I believe the horrible performance of the IGB are hurting sites already providing some content, but even more important it is likely preventing community developers to develop sites that take advantage of the IGB's unique functionality.

Personally, I dont care if CCP fixes their existing code (through a UI overhaul), uses some other 3rd party code (Opera ex.), use browser functionaly provided by the OS, or some other option. However it must render HTML correctly and fast.

if valve can shove a IE Based browser into the source engine ( seen on CSS's MOTD and others ) then can ccp do this too?...


Posted - 2009.01.20 16:17:00 - [174]

Why? It's many times easier and faster to tab out to your normal browser, and I doubt CCP could do a browser ingame that beats a regular browser.

For those of you who use Steam Valves digital download service you can easily add EVE to your list of Steam games as a shortcut and use Steams overlay browser which works perfectly and supports crazy things like flash (yes you can watch those youtube links in game now!)
Works flawlessly and I won't tell you the rendering engine...
Try it even if you have never used Steam, it's totally free.
Thank you Valve! Very Happy

if valve can shove a IE Based browser into the source engine

Bad idea on so many levels. To name a few: security, system resources, mac and linux clients.

They should probably be looking more at something like lynx or links2 for inspiration, both are fast, open source, and are primarily text oriented. The features don't matter much to me, I say stick with text and minimal graphics support.

However yes, the current version is so amazingly slow that you would probably have to try to make it that bad. If I had to outright guess at where the problem is, I would guess that its related to the packet handling in the client (using the game's network system instead of something separate).

Heres hoping that it gets faster and lighter, not more bloated.

Signed - was trying to negotiate several pages of a website and the delay between each page showing is frustrating at best, horrific at worst

oh god yes... sort this out right the hell now... please.

Seriously... EVE is a game of lists, numbers, statistics, graphs and calculations.


Please fix this.
