Easy Feature Request - Have the page title appear as "meta" entry in the browser

edited November 2013 in Feature Requests
Quick suggestion -- In most cases as GMs, we're going to be running Obsidian Portal with multiple browser tabs open, to quickly cycle between NPCs and characters, maps, scenarios, GM notes, etc.

It would be incredibly useful to have some indication in the browser tab at the top as to which element we're moving to. Right now, it only says "Obsidian Portal," meaning I have to hunt through two or three tabs before I remember exactly what I'm looking for.

It should be pretty easy to include a dynamic meta tag that puts the page name, or character name into the browser tab, like this: "Character Name - Obsidian Portal."

    It used to have this, and does not any longer.
    It was a change I did not notice until our 1st game after the reforge- and then, wow, did I notice it! Really time consuming to have to search from tab to tab when I had 20 open, which is normal for our online games!

    I have not done enough live GMing of late for this to matter but I can see how it could be a right pain in the possum.
