Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-30
although named EIGHT - Firefox start page, this deviation by ~flatmo1 is completely browser- and/or platform-independent. you use chrome, safari, opera, IE, konqueror (to name just a few) on whatever version of windows, linux or mac? don't worry. it just works flawlessly.

it is a nice, elegant, customizable and windows8 inspired start page alternative that is just waiting to be used by you.

So more changes:

- Login added
- Categories by name
- Add scroll by mouse again (didn't know it was broke)

Put your mouse to the left side of the screen and see the animated bar move the screen to show you the categorieas and login.

This is awesome, but I wonder if it would be possible to add code to be able to scroll using mouse-wheel rather than clicking the arrows?

I use this a much infact that I have incorporated it into work and as my main homepage and have others using it as well. I decided that I needed more flexibility for usage scenarios, so I converted it into asp running a backend database. It is now complete dynamic (no static content).

Main page: (This page is still the original page using the source.js and script.js files)

Dynamic content is accomplished by adding a querystring, like so:
A: by Category ID. - for my daughters computer (homepage) - for work

B: by User ID:

Other dynamic items are auto redirect and search engines:… - changes the default search from bing to google… - redirects page to search engine within the allotted seconds

I even thought of developing so that the site is so dynamic it can customize the tiles as well...

I am in the process of developing a login page that will generate a user hash instead of an ID, then it can be saved as a homepage without ever logging in as long as know the hash value.

The config page is not working yet, as it needs to built for the database.

Hopefully I got the copyright info right. Please let me know if I'm missing something.
