although named EIGHT - Firefox start page, this deviation by ~flatmo1 is completely browser- and/or platform-independent. you use chrome, safari, opera, IE, konqueror (to name just a few) on whatever version of windows, linux or mac? don't worry. it just works flawlessly.

it is a nice, elegant, customizable and windows8 inspired start page alternative that is just waiting to be used by you.

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?

Right below the "Add to Favorites" button, it says "Download"
just a quick question were is the link to download eight?
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?
