This applet was made to ease authentification on web portals used for wifi access, like Fon for example.
It check a web page that should not be allowed when not authenticated and do the authentification itself, so you don't have to start a browser anymore...
Contextual menu allow you to :
store your email and password : Properties
check you connection : Check Authentification
Click on the applet in order to authentify (display will change within 3-5 seconds if succeeded)
You can also auto-login on startup or when NetworkManager change your network/reconnect/...
Known issues / TODO
Only manage "Fon" network for now but adding a network is easy : simply add parameters in the list in "src/autologin.py"
login/password stored with gconf, should be in a more secure place
one help button but it does nothing
