Welcome to Protopage V3. An enormous THANK YOU to our loyal users and to everyone that has written in with comments, suggestions and bug reports – your support and feedback continues to be critical in shaping the future of Protopage.
We’re pleased to announce the following brand new features:
The new feed reader auto-detects feeds which only provide headlines and summaries, and displays them in an “article summaries” mode (try it for a feed such as CNN.com). It also uniqely remembers and orders your news feeds according to the frequency with which you read them.
Cartoon mode: see the largest image from any particular feed as a single image, which is perfect for cartoon news feeds.
Thumbnail mode: see thumbnail grids of not only Flickr/photo feeds, but of any news feed.
Video podcast support
Audio podcast support, with integrated podcast player
You can now organize your page by creating tabs and categories. If you want to use Protopage as a quick and easy web page publishing tool, you can make your tabs public so that the whole world can see them. You can also assign passwords to groups of tabs so that only certain people will be able to view or edit them.
A hierarchical todo list, with edit-in-place and drag-and-drop – not only within lists but between different todo list widgets.
Protopage launches with 270 preloaded widgets, including 96 games, 71 finance widgets and 26 sports score widgets.
It’s now easier than ever before to add new content and widgets to your Protopage. There are wizards for adding news feeds, podcasts, video podcasts, cartoon feeds and photo thumbnail feeds, as well as a directory of hundreds of news publications and blogs to choose from.
No more clicking the ‘edit’ button to change a sticky note! You can now simply click to edit the text directly inside the widget. (Note: This only works for our new plain-text sticky notes. If you use a Rich Text / HTML sticky note, you still need to use the ‘edit’ button so that you can use all of the Rich Text formatting control buttons and options).
For quick access to your favourite search engines, such as Wikipedia, you can use the new search box in the top right corner of your Protopage. You can choose from our directory of built in search engines, or add your own.
With the introduction of support for the Opera browser, you can now even view your Protopage on your Nintento Wii!
Thank you for being a Protopage early adopter – and thank you again to everyone that has written in and supported us.
We’re now working on new features including the ability to export the contents of your Protopage. We record and tally feature requests sent in so that we can prioritize the introduction of new features according to demand.
Please continue to send us your comments, suggestions, bug reports and feedback so that we can continue to make Protopage everything you want it to be!
