we would like to tell you about a little app that we created to make you life as a website developer a bit easier.
Basically the whole idea behind it is that it removes the need to refresh your browser every time you want to see the changes you made. This tiny minimalistic browser refreshes itself – all you have to do is edit your code and see changes in real – time (very beneficial if you use higher resolution).
It is open source, so feel free to try it.We need you feedback
oh and sorry, it is mac only.
NOOOOOO ! I was soo stoked to read this post until I got to the mac only part… maybe PC in the future? unless I hit the lotto, then its MAC TIME !
Sorry about the “mac only” thing guys. It is just that we work on mac and we do this stuff in our spare time, so mac version is the only one available at the moment.
…so this is an actual browser…which engine is it running on?
Hi guys! “Looks” cool but I don’t have a mac either maybe someday when I buy one, I will certainly try it. btw your new blog looks nice, good luck with that!
It is built on Webkit, because it is far easier to implement than Gecko in an Objective-C application. We are open to suggestions (as well as the source is so one day we might implement gecko too.
A Windows port is not planned (as said previously we are mac only ATM ). But if someone decides to port it to Windows we will be very happy and will provide support and hosting for it.
We are interested in building community around Defresh, so if any developers (mac or pc) want to join they are welcome.
