A few weeks ago i realized it really sucked to read manga online. I couldn't see 2 pages at the same time (that may seem not important, but is part for the feel your really are reading a manga), i had to freaking keep scrolling down, and after all that in most pages i add to wait on a single basis for each page to load, as most webreaders don't cache ahead... So after all that realization, and as I am java-literate i started making a program for personal use, to use with the mangareaders i mainly used at the time (like OM and other stuff like that) after about 2 or days of development i had something that could be of use to other people (still really really basic, it is basic now, but at that moment it could only cache all chapter pages and after that show them in the monitor, and it worked like in 2 or 3 webreaders).

Anyway, after 3 weeks +/- of development (not continuously as i have rl - work, get drunk and other stuff), i came to where it is now:

MangaStreamer is a tool for online manga-readers. The program installs a Firefox plugin that allows the user to open the manga he's reading in one external app, the manga is streamed and cached in the program (like a video stream) and you can go back and next as you want without further browsing.

It gives the reader option to choose between single page/double page mode, has a magnifier, you can control the spacing between pages, it has 17 webreaders supported atm(i plan to have more in next release), it allows automatic archiving of chapters and other stuff you can read about in my blog about the app, and where you can also download it.

(Hope this is personalized enough)

I must say i don't understand the problem as I am not advertising other web-readers. I didn't even have a single problem in other pages where i have a lot more views. But if you see a problem i don't really mind you erasing it.

I must say i'm impressed about this kind of reaction, never even once i received such aggressive response for a free service.

btw: i would like to understand what do you mean by take away, as you probably don't own nor the copyright for the series, or do the scanlations.

Edit: After verifying who shukero is (and that what he says doesn't really count for nothing as he doesn't voice the administration opinions) i have to apologize for andy (i thought this shukero guy was a moderator or something like that) so i reacted to that kind of response.

** longinus525, if you would have perhaps asked for a little help with this I may have put a link on here somewhere for you. Or even put a link in your signature. Regardless, your post has been removed
