LINK ME

Have you ever been frustrated on the cameras web page loading when you need to quickly switch between different pages? Do you find yourself solving this by opening multiple tabs in the browser containing a specific camera page?

Link Me is a playful ACAP add-on that gives you quick links to all major camera pages. It provides four sidebars (top, bottom, left, right), grouping links between Camera config, Admin config, maintenance and ACAP add-ons. The last group gives someone like me value as my cameras are cluttered with ACAP Add-ons (you may get there some day). Not only does it give quick-links, each opened page will be cached in the browser (through multiple iframes). When going back to a previous page there will be no loading time.
