The assistant has been improved to more accurately recognize if an input field is meant to be a username or password field - in some cases, their authors add unnecessary spaces or capital letters, which sometimes prevented the assistant from knowing what to do.
For example you sometimes see things like 'type = "PassWord"' as an argument for password field, while we thought so far that HTML authors would only use "type="password"'. Now the login assistant recognizes far more variants for HTML tags and arguments. We keep improving this mechanism, whenever further formulars are found that prevent the assistant from analyzing them correctly.
Assistant for Login/Form elements
With BrowserHome version 1.08 an assistant tool has been implemented which makes it much easier to set a Login/Form element up.
Before the assistant was available, it could have been difficult to get such an element working without proper HTML knowledge. The assistant will search the address youd like to login at for HTML forms. If more than one was found, at first you will have to choose one of them - afterwards you assign the detected form fields, telling the element which is the Login field, which is the Password field and so on. In most cases these assignments will be done automatically, so youll mostly just have to confirm them.
[UPDATE from 2010-09-15] Fixed a small bug that prevented the assistant from accessing websites with manually entered ports - we firstly encountered this problem when someone tried to set up a login to the TeamSpeak2 admin interface. The assistent should now be able to access all kinds of those websites with different ports.
Time zones implemented / Regular operations started
From now on you´re not forced to use UTC+1 - you can change your time zone in your personal data. This only affects displayed times and dates, while all time-related data is still being saved as UTC+1 in order to be able to convert it to any chosen time zone. Due to legal purposes, invoices and everything money-related will still be shown with UTC+1.
If you´re using a function element (inside an info window) to show the next Formula1 race, you will now also see at which time this it will start. This also includes automatic conversion to your time zone.
Also we were able to complete the necessary programming concerning quick processing of incoming bank transfers. Because this is now the regular first step in order to buy Premium time, the phase all accounts had Premium activated in for free, has ended - every new and existing account got 7 days of free Premium time, so everyone who wants to may become acquainted with the comfort gained by the full potential of BrowserHome.
Also in English now
If you encounter any bugs like empty or inaccurate texts - were giving away one free week for each reported bug, if they really exist. :-)
The website browserhome.de is officially online!
After a long period of development and testing, the beta phase has finally ended with some final optimizations being implemented. Sincere thanks are given to all beta-testers - thanks to your efforts in finding and fixing bugs and thanks to your help trying to improve the website itself, every single one of you really earns what has been promised before: your lifetime Premium status for free!
As of now, were currently working on a way to automate the process of incoming bank transfers in order not to get you any unnecessary delays if youd like to use our Premium status. Until this has been finished, all accounts are Premium-forced - that means, you can experience all features Premium offers for free, until were done programming. The day this is going to happen, this free Premium time is ending. The 7 days of free Premium time every new account gets will be stored as a free week until then - you will be able to convert it into actual Premium time, so you wont lose a single day of Premium experience on our website.
The preliminary ToDo list has been finished so far - except for a few things, the website is virtually complete and now ready to be beta-tested. Of course all beta-testers are going to get lifetime Premium status for free.
