uTab (`[UuΜµ]{TAB|Tab|tab}`, pronounced you-tab, mu-tab, or microtab) is a New Tab daemon that runs on localhost to satisy your desire for cross-browser consistency of New Tabs. To enable it, read on.

## Why

I hopped from Firefox to Falkon (KDE's browser) a while ago. It doesn't offer many choices as to a new tab. The default home page is not useful, and the speed dial is buggy and slow. I miss the "Top Sites" in Firefox, which manifests your most frequently visited sites in a 8*4 matrix. So I made this.

## How

Reluctant to squat on precious four-letter PyPI namespace, I did not upload utab to it, lest someone should foster a much better clone. Anyways, using this version of utab doesn't involve significantly more work than doing pip install.

### Running

To run it inside the command line, run `python -m utab`. It will start running as a daemon, on port 64366. To start it on startup, consider putting it in `.profile` or something.

## Contributing

There are three ways to contribute. One is bug reports in the provided scope. If so, contact `fkfd at macaw dot me`. Another is feature requests. If I'm interested, I may spin up a mailing list and we collaborate. Then there's forking. This is the preferred method if you are to introduce a lot of changes. Configurability is limited by design in my version of utab, to make codebase lightweight. Fork this project and do whatever 0BSD allows (i.e. anything). Thank you.

This is a piece of Usable Technology. It supports the philosophy that fewer restrictions should be imposed on individual developers, thereby maximizing the **community value**. It doesn't spoil anyone's fun, because 99% of the time it's another innocent person rather than an evil corp.
