Browser Setup



 

Active Edges  - - Check this box to make the left and right side link bars hide themselves once a link is selected.   This expands the browser to the edges of the window for extended page viewing.  If you have the 'Auto' setting selected, moving the mouse over either the left or right edges of the browser will pop the respective research link bar back into view.  If you have the 'Click' setting selected, you need to click in the black space between the window edge and web page border to activate the research link bar.  If you have the Alt-A setting selected, you need to press the Alt-A key combination to activate the research link bars. The link bars will disappear once you move your mouse over the web page area or select a link either on the bar or a web page.  They will also disappear after 7 seconds of inactivity. 

Pop-Up Windows  - - The SpeedResearch browser has the ability to bock pop-up ads.  The settings are as follows.

ON - Allow all popup windows to open
OFF - Block ALL popup windows
SELECTIVE - Prompts you when a popup occurs and displays the domain that the ad is being served from.  You can then select from options to either allow the popup once, always allow popups from the specified domain, or block it and prevent all further popups from the specified domain.

Reset - Reset all popup domain preferences set during Selective mode.
Edit - Review and edit all preferences set during Selective mode.

Stock Date/$ Stamp - - When this box is checked, any new ticker symbols added to your portfolios will have the current date and price entered into the Note for that ticker.

Auto Tab Title - - When this option is selected, all default tab titles are ignored and tabs are automatically renamed as you navigate the web to the title of the current web page on the tab.

Minimize to Tray - -

Minimum Portfolio Size - - This feature was added to users with lower screen resolutions, mainly being 800X600. The number in the box represents the minimum number of stocks that the browser will allow the portfolio to display. The research links may extend beyond the bottom of the screen if this is set to a higher number. For users with low screen resolutions, you may want to experiment with the font size of the portfolios, the Min Portfolio Size and also turn off the display of the portfolio name to get to a display setting that you are satisfied with and can make the most of the available research links. 

#Tabs (2-10) - - Sets the number of tabbed web windows that are used in the browser. The browser must be restarted for any changes in this number to take affect. The higher you set this number to, the more system memory the browser will use. We do not recommend using more than 5 tabs unless your systems has at least 64mb of ram.

F-Key Chart - - You can use your 'F' keys at the top of your keyboard for various tasks.

F1 - Help - Navigate to the SpeedResearch browser help page.
F2 - Broker - Show your current broker page.
F3 - Search - Opens the last used search page displaying results for the last key words entered into the address/url box.  If you select a group of words on the current web page and press F3, then the web search will be performed on those words.
F4 - Form Fill - Same as clicking the Form Fill toolbar icon.  The browser will attempt to fill in a form on the current page with the information you provided in the Form Fill setup (below).
F5 - Refresh the Selected Tab - Refreshes the current web page
F6 - Refresh All Tabs - Refreshes all web pages currently open on all tabs except for your broker page.
F7 - Save Page - Same as the File-Save option in Internet Explorer allowing you to save the current web page to your hard drive.
F8 - Open in New Window - Opens the current page within the SpeedResearch browser into an new Internet Explorer window.
F9 - Dictionary - Will open Dictionary.com in a new window with the definition of a word that you have selected on the current web page within the SpeedResearch browser.
F10 - Amazon Book Search  - Returns search results on Amazon.com for the text you have selected on the current page in your SpeedResearch browser.  

Color Settings - -  Select the area you wish to change the colors of and then click the 'Fore' button to change the foreground (text) color and then click the 'Back' button to change the background color.. When you click OK on the Setup window, your changes will be implemented. 

Browser Window Caption - - Selecting the Current Page Title (default) option will make the browser act very similar to Internet Explorer by always showing the page title of the current web page in the caption of the window.  Selecting the Last Link option will cause the browser to always display in the window caption, the title of the last used research link within the browser.

Internet Explorer Settings - -  Opens the Microsoft Internet Explorer settings dialog box.  Any changes made to your Internet Explorer settings will be applied to your SpeedResearch browser.  Remember to keep your Internet Explorer up to date for all the latest features and secure web browsing.  You can download the latest version from Microsoft.com

Export & Import - - Clicking the Export button will save all of your browser settings to a file called SRBXport.srb located in the directory that you have your browser installed in (usually c:\program files\SRBrowser ). Clicking the Import button will take all of the settings stored in the SRBXport.srb file and apply them to the browser. After importing settings, your browser will automatically restart. This feature can be used in one of two ways. You can use it to back up your settings occasionally in case you want to restore them to an original condition, or, if you are using more than one computer, you can export the settings from one computer and apply them to another just by copying the SRBXport.srb file to the other computer and importing them. Be sure when copying to another computer, that you copy the file to the directory that you have the browser installed in. 

Delete Notes - - Will delete ALL personal notes for ALL stocks in ALL of your portfolios. You will be prompted to confirm before your notes are deleted.

Update - - Takes you to the SpeedResearch.com web site to read about and download the latest version of the browser.


 

Form Fill 

 

Form Filler - -  Enter any information you wish to have available to fill in web page forms automatically using the button on your tool bar. The information you chose to enter will remain safely on your computer and will only be entered on forms when you click the Auto Form Fill button in the tool bar or press the F4 key. If you encounter a form that the Auto Form Fill feature does not fill in or only partially fills in, it is most likely that the field names the web developer used to create the form are specific to that company or web site. If you wish, use the email button and send us the URL of the form and we will see if the field names used on the form are basic enough to be added the the browser.

 

Stock Doc

Auto Entry Options

Data - Select from these options what real-time data you would like automatically inserted into new Stock Docs when they are created.
