    Default [Idea] Staturbar Web Browser.
    Ok the tittle might be confusing, but anyways, I have been wondering about something for the past few days. Is there anyway to somehow make a web browser appear when you slide your finger down on the statusbar, kinda like qtweeter, to give it a more of an HTC Hero like feel? possibly a mobilesubstrate add-on?

    not using the dock in sbsettings. i mean a full blown out web browser for the statusbar, not using a program already made.

    im not quite understanding you.

    like a slide the status bar, a search field appears and you can search your phone and google the web? like how android phones have the google search widget on the home screen?

    this is exactly what i was asking about. it would be really cool. ive tried to so it but you cant get to the source code of sbsettings to find out how that works

    honestly, i wouldnt use sbsettings code. it doesnt look near as cool as the droids bar animation (i mean you cant actually PULL/DRAG it down, it just comes down automatically when you slide the statusbar) i think it would be way better to start from scratch, or at least change their code so it could be like the droids. this is just my opinion though, your choice

    yeah, i mean just that basic idea. qtweeter does it almost exactly like the droid. you pull straight down from it and it opens up the box to be able to write from the top and a keyboard from the bottom

    maybe we can rewrite qtweeter's code if you can get a hold of it.

    okay, i found this looking around on the internet. Its a tutorial for making an app with a drop down box, like qtweeter. I have no idea how to do any of that but maybe if someone can make that run with springboard, that would be a start to what we need i think

    It's probably possible, just out of my personal reach.

    I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm honestly wishing you luck. I love to see when new things can be accomplished.

    agreed. i am very interested in this...but are you going to have it launch the browser when you pull down? cause this might lag. but if you always have the browser running it will slow the phone down.

    I think it would be better with the lag, it would be fine though, just like an app launching
