New First-launch Site
On first launch if an elementary app doesn’t have any other data to show it should highlight some options for loading data into the app. The way you load data into Odysseus is by simply surfing the web, so to follow that principle I’ve designed a website with a bunch of links to start your websurfing on.
And while I was slowed down by a sickness, over the last while I’ve been redesigning that site to make it more helpful for it’s purpose, nicer and more minimal looking, and easier for me to maintain. Very simply what I changed was to add more scripting, and now not only do you have a nice simple page full of a random sampling of links illustrated by a screenshot of their destinations, but all I have to maintain are those web addresses.
I hope that having a random sampling will do a better job encouraging you to explore, and that the screenshots will do a better job representing those links whilst making them look more intriguing.
Finally these links are intended as an aid to start your web surfing in Odysseus, and in hopes of garnering your trust for that I’m specifically excluding any paid sponsershops if/when they will occur. And tommorrow I will make this dataset further fulfill it’s purpose for longer by incorporating it into the new tab page.
