Visual Favorites - Early Alpha Build

I've got a very early alpha build of the Visual Favorites application I mentioned a couple of weeks ago.  I've been real busy working on a lot of things, so this got a little neglected.  Spent last night and tonight getting it polished up a bit for the features that are currently active.

Currently, it:

  • Drag and Drop favorites between folders.
  • Automatically downloads favicon.ico icons if they are specified in the favorites file.  These are cached for future reference.
  • Modify the name of a favorite.
  • Contains a simplified browser to assist you in managing your favorites.
  • Browser allows you to go forward/back, stop, refresh, go home, and enter a url to browse to.
  • When on a page, you can easily add an item to your favorites under the currently selected folder.
  • Alt+F1 will toggle the folder view pane for more browser real estate.
  • </UL>

    That's about it for now.  Right now, it's sort of a mesh of various features that you can already do today as separate components.  Still have a long way to go before it's where I'd like to see it.  If you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see added, please don't hesitate to say so.

    If you feel a little brave (actually, it's been pretty well tested in it's current state), you can download the first alpha here (Note: you must extract *all* of the files to the same folder to run).
