Keep Your Friends Close: Using Web Panels for Social Media
D0J0P last edited by
I love the idea of web panels, and would probably use it for things like FB/FB Messenger, Gmail, etc. But the problem is they take up RAM/CPU and bandwidth resources without giving me the ability to hibernate it. If it didn't take up any resources while they were hidden, I'd probably use it a lot more often. For now, being able to close and hibernate tabs is keeping me from using web panels.

1st, is it ok to continue in this 1 year old thread?
Anyway, I'm agree with you. Active site such GMail become a burden if added as webpanel.
I wonder if we add stock ticker site to webpanel it usually update every second, Gmail every few minutes. Never test it, just cross my mind as I write this.
Hibernating webpanel for site like GMail will cause the checking doesn't run. We'll need another method to minimize resource.

@dleon This thread is a year old? I just came here from Vivaldi's tweet/retweet, which led me here and thought it was a new thread. Sorry about that.
I do like your ideas on stock ticker. It's kind of like notifications from apps you get for emails, even though you don't have the app open at all. I agree there needs to be another method for minimizing resource, but as someone who isn't a programmer, I don't know the solution to that.
Using the Web Panels for social media accounts works amazing! So fluid!
I love this browser. I am a web engineer. its great for productivity.
Thank you so much for creating it.
The biggest change I would be requesting is for some indicator on the panel to show me a notification count/ or light on the social media sites.
Also a solution for others who may have the same types of problems as I:
i find that while using messenger.com. the css of the site actually contains a min-width, restricting me from making the panel too thin.
This is when I discovered that css/js injection plugins effect the panel area too.
So now I have unset this min-width. i also have the facebook header bar positioned fixed. so I always see notifications even while scrolling through facebook.
@duarte-framos: does Tiddlywiki Provide any clear advantages over the current OneNote?

Now if I could tile them... so I could have, say, both Gab and Twitter showing.
I love being able to use Vivaldi for Instagram activities, especially DM's. However, I can't make it stop showing the "new message" quantity of 1 on the DM icon when I have no new DM's. It's not even all the time, but it is there roughly 75% of the time. Is anyone else seeing this?
