We’ve been busy this week. The following are a few of the various improvements you might notice at Dapper:
Virtual Browser Overhaul
The Virtual Browser (the “Collect Pages” step in the Dapp Factory) has been overhauled and rewritten. This rewrite addresses some long standing issues with many sites not appearing correctly (for instance, Yahoo’s homepage), improves login functionality, and fixes many foreign language encoding problems.
Free Text Improvements
We’ve improved Dapper’s ability to deal with “free standing text” – the kind of text that is not contained within an element on a page. This should help make Dapps on a variety of pages (e.g., Pitchfork’s record reviews page).
A small fix went out yesterday to improve Dapper’s ability to “inherit” links in places where it wasn’t working before.
All of these improvements were made in response to your input and suggestions, so please keep them coming. And if you find any problems with these fixes, let us know.
