Re: *only* control via pop up?

I have a lot of respect for your work and I understand that was very complicated for complexes devices. Although I have 40 devices, these are almost on/off & dimmable.
Maybe you can keep the popup window in web browsers for the basic on/off/dimmable devices and open a new window for complexes devices ?
Can you detail what you dislike about the new technique which opens the controls in a new window?
My reasons are esthectics ! Let me explain : I've created a beautiful webpage
including a 3D map of my home (view from upper like 2D), with customized icon devices, with buttons for macros and a screen for securityspy.
The popup window was so beautiful with my webpage : black fade in/fade out, slider. When I click on a device, imediatly the popup appears where I cliked and I only have to click on/off or slide. It's magic !
With the new techniques : no more fade in/out, no more sliders, I can't see no more my webpage because a new blank window is opened, I have to move the mouse, click the value, then I have to close the window to go back to my webpage ! The magic has dissapeared...
Please people, ask Matt to bring this feature back only for simple devices !
Just for statistics, why don't you make a survey, that will let you know if people use :
- Indigo Touch only
- Indigo Touch and exceptionally web browser
- more Indigo Touch than web browser
- more web browser than Indigo Touch
- Web browser and exceptionally Indigo Touch
- Web browser only
It could be interesting for your development !
I don't believe it is on the server anymore, but if you need it I can post it again for you.
I tried to find beta 7 on Announcement but the link downloads the last version. If you can post it again it would be very nice ! Thank you Matt !
