This Monday we’re taking a look at another GUI tweak in Outpost 2009 – this time, a more convenient display of Online Activity. In the same way as the Network and Process Activity, this log of active web processes is now more customizable and visually attractive.
Here’s how the display looks in Outpost 2008:
The new layout displays the following columns by default:
- Host Address
- File Name
- Object Size
If you want to see a full URL address and Object type, just select the Columns command by right-clicking on the process. We’ve also added in a time lag on the deletion of obsolete records; in Outpost 2009 they are marked in grey before being removed (the same as in the Network Activity monitor).
Here’s a screenshot of the Online Activity monitor in Outpost 2009:
By suppressing long addresses and additional details, the information is easier to read without having to scroll around. One more small but helpful way to improve the usability of Outpost 2009.
