WEBGUI File Browser available for IE, FF, SF and Chrome

Recently the NPAPI was disabled in Chrome. With this, the Java applet responsible for download/upload operations via WEBGUI could no longer work.

The alternative was presented here.

With the corrections made, the default behavior in each web browser is:

Internet Explorer:

IE11.jpg

Firefox:

FF.jpg

Safari:

SF.jpg

Chrome:

But what if I would like to have the same behavior across all web browsers? I mean, I would like to have the WEBGUI File Browser available in all supported web browsers.

This is possible! Just adding parameter ~webgui_updown_noapplet_mode with value 28 in the GUI Configuration will turn on the new interface.

New behavior, after adding the parameter:

Internet Explorer:

IE11v2.jpg

Firefox:

FFv2.jpg

Safari:

SFv2.jpg

In Chrome there is no change, as the WEBGUI File Browser is the only possible behavior.
