iCab 3.0 Beta 364 aka "iCab RSS"
And, as always, Alexander's list of bug fixes and new features:
There's now a small "RSS Feed" reader build in. When opening RSS Feeds
in iCab (either directly by clicking on a RSS link or by selecting an
item from the RSS popup of the status bar while holding down the
Shift, Option or Command key), iCab will load the RSS Feed and then
will translate it into HTML code and display the result. So RSS Feeds
can be now displayed in iCab as well.
Selecting a RSS Feed from the RSS Popup without pressing any keys will open the RSS Feed as usualy in the default RSS Reader that is configured in the system. When you hold down the Shift, Option or Command key iCab will display the Feed itself and will use the usual shortcuts to decide if the feed will be displayed in the foreground or background and in a window or a tab.
- New option "Ignoriere CSS value when required unit is missing" in the "compatibility" preferences. Some web pages are using invalid CSS rules like "width:100;" where the unit (for example "px" or "em" is missing) and expect that the Browser expects "px" in this case. The web standards expect that these invalid rules must be ignored. Some web pages do use the invalid definition and expect that the browser ignores these rules. So it's now possible to configure iCab in which way this is interpreted.
- Fixe some bugs when processing StyleSheets.
- When printing web pages with lots of IFRAME elements iCab could crash.
- Workaround for a bug of the MacOS: When activating Unicode text edit field at a certain time, the MacOS never draws its content. Though entering text works fine, nothing is visible.
- The workaround for SSL connections from Beta 356 had still some problems with HTTP redirections.
- Small modification to make iCab more compatible to Firefox when displaying non-repeated background images in inline elements which is explicitely not defined in the CSS specification.
