Actualy, I have been messing with this app as well, although I've been primarily working on the IE part. Thus far, I've created an Internet search bar that lets me choose one of 7 search engines to use. I've got lots of other plans for the internet end of it. I like your ideas on the HD explorer end, but honestly have no idea how to acomplish it. I'm also wanting to be rid of the yellow splash screen, but am more than happy to provide a link on the bar itself. As Grigri's site is ofline, perhaps someone here at VP would be willing to help?
So many people have asked me to remove the annoying yellow splash... I don't even know why I put it there in the first place!
Anyway, slight problem : I dredged up the code from my dungeon drive, and tried to edit it, but the darn thing doesn't work any more. It looks like I'm going to have to re-code the whole thing from scratch. Argh!!
