I believe it it is optified
Total non-opt usage is 68k
I believe the limit is around 300k.Correct me if I am wrong.

No, it's not optified -- startup time (which, as I understand, is better for applications that live on the root partition) is very important, and as techie notes, Browser Switchboard is quite small -- well below the 500 KB limit for files on the root partition. So the fact that it's not optified should not be a problem.

I'm very pleased to announce that Browser Switchboard 3.3-1fremantle2 has been promoted to Extras. Fremantle Extras is now the recommended way to install Browser Switchboard on Maemo 5 devices.

Many thanks to everyone who tested the many beta builds and provided feedback, particularly jukey and qwerty12 for patiently dealing with my complex testing requests and providing exceptionally detailed reports.

I'd like to thank you very much for your effort making your this tool better and better over a long time! I started this thread long time ago and I never thought that we would get a great solution like browser-switchboard. And It was also unbelievable that you as someone who did not own a N900 were developing this application. Thanks!

I hope the way browser-switchboard works could be an example for other applications too. Mail and Media Player would be interesting candidates...

I'm pretty sure it'd be possible for email -- the interface you'd need to implement is the one for Modest (sort of documented here). That said, I'm not the one to do this, given that I do almost all my mail reading by ssh'ing into another machine and running mutt there

I'm pleased to announce Browser Switchboard stable releases 3.3-2 (Diablo) and 3.3-2fremantle1 (Fremantle). Packages are now available in extras (Diablo) or extras-testing (Fremantle) and on the Garage download page.

This release fixes one bug in our implementation of the com.nokia.osso_browser D-Bus interface, which was showing on Fremantle as a failure to launch the Flickr new account setup page from the Sharing control panel. Thanks to Tom G for reporting. (I held the release expecting to have a few more bug reports to deal with after pushing Browser Switchboard into Fremantle extras, but they never materialized ...)

For more information on the changes in this release, see the package changelog (Diablo, Fremantle); for excruciating detail, see the revision history in Git.

Fremantle users: This release is in Extras-testing. If you feel this package meets the extras-testing QA criteria (see the link), please vote for it in the extras-testing queue! Given that this is a low-risk bugfix release, there shouldn't be any new problems -- it'd be nice to get it into extras ASAP. (If there are problems, let me know via email or here on this thread.)

(Aside: It's rather ridiculous that it takes almost two months to get one small fix through extras-testing ...)

You want the --url option:

Code:
microb --url http://www.facebook.com/
(You can also sort of do this with /usr/bin/browser when Browser Switchboard is not installed, but the behavior with regards to a prestarted MicroB process is probably not what you want.)
