Title of newly opend window should become title from web-page. IMHO it's a important and major problem which is essential bringing desktop-feeling to web-apps. Window-handling should work in the same manner as when running in normal browsers. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. myNewWin = window.open(url, "MyNewPopUpWin", "width=300,height=400,left=100,top=200"); 2. 3. Window-handling should work in the same manner as when running in normal browsers. see Details.
I don't think "title" really becomes the title of the window anyway. But setting the size and position of a window should work.
but title makes it convenient and the only way (because of the icon-issue ... everywhere is the ie or ff icon) for the user to distingish beetween many opened browser windows when they are mimimized to the task-bar. Tooltip over the task-bar window shows that title ... and that's very handy. Open this bub in a seperate browser window, mimimize that window and look at the tooltip ... this will help you finding the right window. Also when ALT-TAB ing throw the os-windows ;) <title>Bug 421457 – newly opened windows don't take care of title, width, height, top, left, ...</title> I aggree that this will be not easy. The lack of os dependant desktop-integration of the traditional browsers should be addressed by prism. This is the goal of the project if i understand correctly. Prism should use defined transformational rules how web-standards (<title>, <favicon>, window.open() ... js-alert(..), ...) should transform on the prism/ssb-app/desktop-representation side. Sorry about my bad english ... i hope i could make my imaginations clear ;) Thanks and Regards... Bernd
It might be worth experimenting with having the HTML title added to the app title: "MySuperApp - Account Information" Some/most apps already do this, so we could do some simple parsing of the title to prevent the app name from appearing twice.
