    Alternative browser for Escouts

    On my iPhone I use Tapatalk, which I think is brilliant because it highlights on one page all new and updated threads. In contrast, I find the native Escouts forum (on a Win7 PC via IE9) very unfriendly.

    Is there a similar application to Tapatalk for the PC? I've had a quick search and not found anything yet.

    Thanks,

    Stephen

    Hopefully when we get round to the upgrade the browsing experience will be better. I use the new posts link on the top ([url]http://www.escouts.org.uk/forum/search.php?do=getnew[/url]) to filter what needs a read, although I can't manage them all!

    I do too and find it great - Is there an ignore thread option for new posts?

    I so hope there is. New Posts is good indeed.

    Rule 66. A map and compass offers no protection against getting horribly lost.

    I tend to read that way as well - being from a uk.rec.scouting upbringing I'm used to everything in together, and showing new posts only.

    I do the same on Tapatalk, from which I read about half the time.

    Ahem, I hadn't noticed that. That's what I was after. :o

    Thanks.
