View Full Version : Viewing HTML stored on memory stick
01-18-2003, 05:10 AM
Apart from Netfront, is there another program that allows me to view HTML files stored on the memory stick?
Netfront even allows for links to files in other folders besides MSWeb. It can access files in any folder on the memory stick.
Alas, and this is a big ALAS, it errors out on big files (usually graphics intense), where other programs cope easily. This is just poor coding, or rather a messy conversion of Netfront for the palm platform. They have done a bad job considering the size of the code. With that amount of code, it should open any htmls, even in the landscape mode. It should even have a basic html editor built in. 2MB and under-achieving and yet showing promise in its abilities.
Please someone, update Netfront.
Any solutions for MS browsing in the mean time?

I have this same problem. I develop web pages and I wanted to be able to view them on the Clie so I can check for mistakes when I am bored and not at my PC. I use NetFront just because this is the only option right now. I have not been able to make any other browser work with off line saved HTML. I also do not want to use any program that requires it to be converted. I want to keep the files native - HTML. Hopefully something will come out soon.

I am seriously considering switching to the 640x480 portrait or landscapable Zaurus SL-C700. Then again I am wary of NetFront again as the only solution for offline browsing. The added resolution however will reduce a lot of horizontal scrolling. The screen shots of NetFront appear to show that it is a better implementation on the Zaurus being able to open a page with lots of graphics and in landscape mode!!! But I hope there will be an English version by Sharp rather than just from Dynamism. More RAM and Flash would be good too.
Ultimately, I hope Oqo makes it to production instead of remaining a vaporware. No conversions, and lots of space to store stuff on 20GB HD. The abilities of something this size is exciting. It can also be used as a DigiWallet /VMP3H/ Nixvue/A rchos etc. Combined with a digicam via a firewire, it can replace the DV tape. Instant conversion to avi onto the HD ready for editing. The battery will need to be detachable though. If zooming is not a big point, then a high resolution usb or firewire camera could do the job nicely. I seriously don't think the guys at oqo have thought of enough possibilities for something the size of their prototype. This and the fact that their advertisement / marketing is pathetic. Not enough to draw enough interest to allow them to have courage enough to go into production. They sent a letter asking for 25% prepayment of near $2000 price the last time I emailed about preorder.
All this is rather off-topic but the frustration of not being able to do what I want to do with the palm platform or the pocketpc platform is mounting.
Rambling off :-)

Why not use Isilo?
You can convert html to pdb format and it looks great.

Davy the whole point is not to convert the file. Leave it as native HTML.
Davidy I know in NetFront you can shrink font and make the page fit horizontally.
