I have a QtWebKit + PySide browser project to replace the
functionality of “Firefox + NoScript + ImgLikeOpera”.
You may also see occasional posts/comments on various
blogs/bugtrackers/forums/flames/etc: “Firefox is bloated. However, I
have no choice other than FF + NoScript + ImgLikeOpera for my
bandwidth constrained connection.”
Intended functionality/scenario on Webkit Browser is as follow:
- Disable automatic Image loading
- Point your browser to url of your choice.
- On QtWebView, right click on ONE not loaded image’s placeholder. Get
“Load Image” option and load only that ONE on demand.
network if you need them. (Or a more fine grained control over
domain/path patterns for which loading is allowed or disallowed.)
Now, I am stuck similar to this:
Manipulate all HTTP Requests: http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/17834
The solution wouldnt be that low level.
If QWebView or image elements had functions/hooks for this, it would be elegant.
Does WebKit have posibilities for this? Or Is it simply Qt/PySide
didnt expose them?
I kindly request your comments.
