just tried out the latest version 2.0.6

i can't get sunrise to load my development server: http://localhost:9001
no combination works, it just keeps searching google for 'localhost:9001'

as such, i can't really use it for web development
[Version 2.0.6]

this app is great for webdev. it has a couple bugs, and is missing some features, but it not a memory hog like safari and firefox.

* random constant dialog box popping up that says "the file could not be found", or something to that effect
* occasional crashes
* window resizing is slow; i suspect because of the transparency toggle. i can live with it
* you have to press apple _shift_ + , to scale text larger
* typing "localhost:3000" into the url field searches google for "localhost:3000"; i have to type 'http://' everytime i want to go to a site. that's dumb. provide a toggle or something!

missing features:
* middle button click to open a new tab doesn't work, but apple click does
* tabs don't open in the background
* shiira can read safari's bookmarks without importing them; it would be nice if sunrise did the same
* right click on dock icon should include "new window" function
* right click adblock, like firefox?
* whitelist popup blocker (as in, allow localhost for webdev, and nobody else)

good points:
* small buttons and interface is awesome. keep with that!
* clicktoflash seems to work with sunrise as well. cool!
* fast! focuses on rendering html. i like it.

forgot one: as this app is for web developers, add an "inspect element" option!

ok, this is weird. after trying to report a bug with sunrise's bug reporter, sunrise asked me many, many times to use confidential information in my keychain. i have no idea why it needs access to password info from my keychain for a bug report, nor why it asked so many times…makes you a little uneasy. i'm holding off on sunrise for now.

this application is awesome; it does exactly what i needed!

it will be perfect with the following feature:

* change the window title from "playground" to reflect a page's head & title html tags.
this one is important!! i have to switch to another app, otherwise

* font or whole page scaling
* faster updating
* add py and css extension defaults
* some kind of time feedback to show the page has been or is in the process of updating (for slow scripts)
* window resize presets (800, 1024, etc.)

it's awesome to have safaristand back. however, i have the following problems on my fresh snow leopard system:

- sidebar constantly shows up, despite the fact that it is disabled in safaristand preferences

- "open windows from last session" selection in history menu is greyed out

- the first two flash options are greyed out: "load plug-in manually" & "enable copy flv menu".

this last problem is unfortunate as the "click to play" flashblock was very useful, and i can't find the "action menu", which is where the "copy flv" command has moved.

excellent app. properly displays a presentation of images and movies.
the only thing missing is the ken burns effect between images!

little disappointed, app does not do what it claims to:
opened a folder of mixed jpg's and mov's for a presentation
app does not display a slideshow of the movies with the pictures, you have to open each separately
