* More control over layout of shortcut groups—including the ability to stack shortcuts in groups vertically instead of the "classic" horizonal layout.
* New option to open shortcuts next to active tab—makes losing your place a thing of the past.

Version 0.9.9 117.0 KiB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.6a1pre

* Optional Mouse Support–lots of people asked for this, how could we say no? Entirely optional so it won't get in the way of those that wish to stick to pure keyboard navigation.
* Multi URL shortcuts–assign one key to open multiple URLs. To use this feature enter the sites you wish to open together separated by the | character. Example:||
* Assign custom icons to bookmarklets–a problem with bookmarklets (special javascript links) is they normally only have generic icons, in SiteLauncher you can now associate a site's 'favicon' with each bookmarklet to help distinguish them.
* New menu access via Launcher–you can now access SiteLauncher's menu from the Launcher as an alternative to the Menubar. To do this just hit Tab when the Launcher is showing.
* Case-sensitive shortcuts–SiteLauncher will now distinguish between upper and lower case keys. In the event that only a upper or lower case version of a key is set, it will fallback to case-insensitive mode.
* More customization options–including option to disable icon reflections, and option to remove the 'Site Launcher' item from the Menubar.
* Many other tweaks–many small improvements; several bug-fixes; lots of code refactoring.
