Simple Browser Project

I’ve been looking for a good way to access my corporate email on my linux (opensuse) laptop. Evolution is pretty good, but the evolution-ews plugin is REALLY buggy. The connection was dropping every few minutes for me. The user interface also feels too cluttered for what I’m trying to do. So, I decided to try a different approach.

I wrote a simple python based webkit browser to modify the look and feel of owa to make it more like a desktop app.

You can access the source code here:

Or you can install the opensuse package here:

I also plan to use it to play Netflix on my mythtv box. It seems like I should be able to modify the css styling to make the summaries bigger on the page, etc.

    Have a look at Davmail: http://davmail.sourceforge.net/
    I’ve used it with Kmail to access my corporate Exchange server since they hadn’t IMAP exposed on the internet.
