Enhancement with URL entry option

May 25, 2016 at 2:31 AM
Well done this is a great app! I've looked at --help switches and the program only seems to cater for Window handles to replicate. Is it possible to add an option to replicate a URL to an external web page? This way users would not need to open a browser and have that window open all the time to see the replication, it could just link straight to that sites page and display the portion the content that the user is interested in seeing. (Like Snippage does but that app falls short with 'Always on top' like your app has). I've looked hard to find some app that has both URL , pixel definition and Always on top functionality but I haven't found one yet.
Is there any scope on your radar for adding that functionality?

This is, currently, not possible with OnTopReplica and is not planned: directly replicating an external web page (instead of replicating a browser window) would require an internal web renderer/browser in order to produce the thumbnail. This, even if technically feasible of course, is probably too complex to be implemented.
Sorry :)
Thanks for the suggestion and for using the app!
