Description Vladimir Riha 2013-06-13 10:49:02 UTC
Chromium can be downloaded as a zip archive with executable file chrome.exe. If you register this browser manually in NetBeans, there is no way to use it with inspection features.

Comment 1 Tomas Mysik 2013-06-13 11:03:03 UTC
Davide, AFAIR you have told me that this is not supported - or am I wrong?

Comment 2 David Konecny 2013-06-17 04:28:58 UTC
Possible enhancement. Tomas is correct - only browsers recognized by the IDE are used in "with NB integration" mode. Which should be sufficient I think.
Comment 3 David Konecny 2013-06-17 04:35:03 UTC
Btw. the browser detection looks like Chromium is expected to be available only when "Utilities.isUnix() && !Utilities.isMac()". Which might be obsolete now.
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2013-06-24 13:52:56 UTC
David, what do you mean by "detection"? Are you referring to whether Chromium is available in the browser list out of the box? For that you need to be able to detect the location of Chromium, right?

On Mac the default location is probably /Applications/; not sure if there would be a default location on Windows.
Comment 5 David Konecny 2013-06-24 21:46:40 UTC
All I was saying is that when Denis wrote support for Chromium the browser was available only on Linux and no other platforms are checked. See org.netbeans.modules.extbrowser.ChromiumBrowser.isHidden
