I don't play the game in W-hole space like a lot of others posting here but I do play the game in full screen mode. Having to alt-tab out to find info on out of game browser and then click back in is a no go situation.

I use the IGB to access info from Evelopedia and various 3rd party sites.

CCP, keep the IGB.

I never use it, so I wouldn't normally care one way or the other.

But I love forum tears. So please kill it will fire tomorrow.

I honestly feel like I just read fifty shades of dumb. --CCP Falcon

What I don't get, is why anyone would play at full screen. I get infuriated when mmos developed today don't offer borderless windowed. I mean, what century are these people living in? full screen was out of date once DOS mode games became playable in a window.

Because you don't want irrelevant bits of UI to intrude on your game, or the OS to start reacting to input you have no intent to give to the OS?

Never been an issue for me. Hell, when I did play EvE full screen it made doing anything else on my computer much more irritating.

Meh. vOv
It's the opposite for me: ⌘-tabbing out has never been an issue or cause for irritation, but random bits of unrelated UI intruding on my game has.

Also full screen is often the optimal way to play on a laptop with a screen less than 1366.

Ignore the "only philistines use one screen" comments. They are just attention seeking and showing off along the same lines as the "how can you possibly play with out a force feedback stick, HOTAS, pedals and headtracker" comments you get in the flightsim community occasionally. It's basically saying "look at me I have a good rig".

Because when I'm playing Eve I prefere to be immersed with the whole screen and hate having other things on my screen such as the windows bar / whatever. Not to mention when I'm playing, my pc is used solely to play Eve, aka I'm not browsing reddit, imgur, talking on steam or whatever else people do when they play.

Edit: Long story short, if a game (any game) can be played in fullscreen, I will play said game in fullscreen...

Quoted from Doc Fury: "Concerned citizens: Doc seldom plays EVE on the weekends during spring and summer, so you will always be on your own for a couple days a week. Doc spends that time collecting kittens for the on-going sacrifices, engaging in reckless outdoor activities, and speaking in the 3rd person."

So when the IGB is finally removed and I have no choice but to ALT-TAB out to get some information that I would have previously gotten with the IGB while watching what I was doing in game, will you replace my stuff when I get blown up for being "AFK"?

If you start saving now, you'll probably be able to afford a second screen (or a second computer) by then.

And what if he doesn't have the room for one (such as myself). Not to mention, people shouldn't have to buy a second monitor just to play EvE.

They don't have to. It's just occasionally useful — kind of like the current IGB.

Granted, if they manage to go through with what they're describing, any second screen will do, even your phone.

Removal of the IGB would be nothing but detrimental to the community.

Things are only impossible until they are not.

I think the current IGB definitely needs nuking...

...in favour of something more modern like CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework). It's not that the IGB needs to go, just a massive overhaul.

It just needs to be updated to the latest (or, more appropriately, a much more recent version) of Awesomium.

Which is chromium...

The IGB uses chromium.
