Description:

INTRODUCTION

Miniweb is a Plasma widget that embeds a WebView (a Webkit-based embeded web
browser widget). It aims to display a compact webpage, mostly web-based apps
like micro-blogging, on your desktop.

Because most web apps are too large in size to fit in this tiny window, Miniweb
supports user agent disguise to make the web-sites think you are using a mobile device, so that you get the mobile versions of your favourite sites.


FEATURES

* Cookies saved
* User-agent customization, which helps accessing mobile versions of your favourite sites
* Automatically page refreshing
* An extensible framework that you can write Helpers for specific web sites to do tasks such as URL pre-processing


SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS

* KDE 4.5 or later
* python-lxml 2.2.7 or later


INSTALL

To install:
[indent]$ plasmapkg -i plasma-miniweb-1.0.1.plasmoid[/indent]

To upgrade an existing installation:
[indent]$ plasmapkg -u plasma-miniweb-1.0.1.plasmoid[/indent]
(You may need to re-login KDE to make effect)

1.0.2

2. user's customized size are now be saved
3. removed the BusyWidget on the right of the title, and use Applet's built-in busy indicator instead

Fixed 2 issues:
1. Quote the encoded URL in the xdg-open's command line, to prevent external link from being truncated

yes it's fixed.
I noticed you changed the user agent to symbian.
Can you test the anroid user agent?
It seems to work good for me:

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 1.0; appLanguage; dream) AppleWebKit/525.10+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0.4 Mobile Safari/523.12.2

Thanks. I tried the Android user agent. I found it had the same problem with the iOS agent I used in the first place, that the links in news.google.com became unclickable.

I think so, but unfortunately I didn't find a way to implement a PopupApplet with python so far. I will do some research, but may not work it out in the short run.

Take a look at the panel version of the Konsole applet, maybe that implementation is helpful: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Konsole+Applet?content=134569
