Eve Online frontpage replacement for greasemonkey addon or for browsers supporting user script
-> Greasemonkey or available for firefox/chrome*/safari only
-> Should work also in internet exploder with IE7Pro (user script addon, not tested).
-> If you want to try port the script to other browsers/plugins, you can copy paste it from above link.

Features:
- Custom links to most commonly used pages at top.
- Custom links to most pages at left edge.
- All local eveonline.com pages open to iFrame and link panels remain visible.

Version history:
0.7 - basic link bar
0.8 - layout and style modifications
1.0 - top links, most links forwarded to iframe
1.1 - link parser added to prevent certain forum and gate links opening to new tab.
1.12 - further tuning to link parser. Eve online root no longer open to iframe and all external sites open to new tab. Link parser applied to affect entire site.
1.20 - link bar now collapses and has own scroll bar. Main window scroll bars are now disabled. Iframe now scales with browser window and scrolling works like in any other site.
1.24 - some minor fine tuning to link parser, layout and colors. Few custom sites added just because they are awesome .)
1.241 - added some failheap-challenge forums link parsing for smoother browsing between cross site links.

Hint
If you want to change the default page which opens when entering the site, the row is clearly commented in the code.

Known issues in 1.241
- When clicking system in dotlan.net system map, page opens on _top and back button may not work as intended.
-> Workaround: open the system to new tab or window.
-> Eta for fix: none atm... haven't been able to fix it with the limited information I have about the site.
