Hi -

I've just been using Portable Offline Browser for my first serious project, and I'm very pleased with it. Excellent job!

I do have a suggestion, though. I've downloaded a documentation website and have been using it for reference purposes. There are a few topics that are of special interest to me, but they are buried in the hierarchy of the site, and I often forget exactly how to navigate to them. Even when I do remember, clicking 7 or 8 times to get back to the topic I want is a chore.

Unfortunately, the site map is not helpful here, as the page URLs are all of the "index.php?article=xx" variety, and convey no information about the contents of the topics they link to.

If there were a way to specify favorites for a site, I could build a custom list of pages for each site with only the topics I was most interested in. Ideally, these would appear in the Projects view under the icon for the project, so I could get to them with one or two clicks.

Thanks for a great program!

One way is to add the online addresses of the desired pages to the URLs field of the same Project. If you do so, the Browse button will have a submenu with the list of alternate addresses to browse offline.
