HTML UI? WebExtensions?

Post by aolko » Mon Nov 18, 2019 2:03 pm

Most browsers nowadays use much more flexible HTML+CSS UI. Will this ever be a thing?
Also will it support WebExtensions? (chrome/firefox)

BriskBard uses a customizable user interface with custom styles (skins) and icons.

Users can select their favorite appearance from a list of 40+ styles or create their own style using the "Bitmap Style Designer" included in "Delphi Community Edition".

At this moment there are no plans to replace all the UI with a HTML+CSS solution but the current interface allows you to modify all the appearance for free.

BriskBard uses the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) to embed Chromium-based browsers and the support for extensions is in development as you can see here :
https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/cef/issues/1947/add-support-for-chrome-extensions

As soon as CEF supports extensions completely I'll add it to BriskBard.

HTML+CSS is far more flexible and responsive, compared to bitmap skins, it also has a nice support for svgs, which bitmap skins obviously lack.
