Netcaptor when it was still alive March 4, 2001 3:40 PM   Subscribe

Barely a bug but it affects me... I use Netcaptor, which renders with IE but has tabbed windows and double click opening of groups of sites, as my main browser.
The 'Ctrl-Shift-A to build a link', and other such kung-fu, doesn't work and I have to start up IE proper if I want to post.
Poor me.

The feature isn't here at all on MetaTalk though, is it.

I suppose in addition to this, i noticed that manila/editthispage allows users to do things like bolding, linking etc by clicking on javascript links instead of keyboard "kung-fu".

Not that I have a problem with the keyboard, although ctrl-shift-t for italic does throw me occasionally...

Would hyperlink alternatives to the keyboard be a useful thing to add, Matt?

I had buttons at one time, but it was too much of an interface pain for most folks (that don't and won't ever build hyperlinks or use emphasis), so instead of cluttering anything up, I prefered to simply add a small note to those that could use the feature, everyone else can simply ignore it.
