Is there a way to set a link to open in another browser? 
I found this but cant get it to integrate into the Eight page 

e.g. - I use IE but want a link to open in chrome or firefox as the page renders incorrectly

This is awesome, but I wonder if it would be possible to add code to be able to scroll using mouse-wheel rather than clicking the arrows?

But you know what? Your license is not correct, as all customization is thus forbidden, I could not for example set pages and give such customized version to someone. It makes no sense, why are you worried?

Thanks a lot, this is great tool.

Hey, I love this startpage but it's a bit zoomed-out-looking. I've edited source.js to get rid of the page titles but I was wondering if there's any way to enlarge the elements on the page without doing them all individually? Any tips?
