Podium Browser updated user interface is called Podium Browser 3

Podium Browser 3 features a complete interface overhaul, and adds some highly requested functionality to make the Browser experience even better. You will now be able to create a Podium Browser user account by linking your Google profile. This will allow Podium Browser to track two very useful items which will significantly speed up your Browser workflow:

Recently Used items: While you are logged in, Podium Browser 3 keeps a running list of all your recently used components. This makes it easier than ever to navigate back to the items you've been using in your scene without searching through the categories. Simply click the "Recently used" button, and you're good to go!

User Favorites: Additionally, Podium Browser will now keep track of your "favorite" Browser items. If you find yourself using a component over and over again, click the star icon in the upper right portion of the item thumbnail. Clicking the star will add that item to your favorites list, which can be accessed by clicking the "My favorites" button any time you are logged in.

There have been some issues that Windows and Mac existing users have encountered. These are easy to resolve. Please read the Browser 3 FAQ. The issues are:

    1. Blank web page where thumbnails were
    2. Script error message
    3. Scroller does not display (Mac specific)
    4. Paid content message appears.

Please read the Browser 3 FAQ if you are encountering any problems.

As always, if you have any problems with the use of a specific tool or technique, feel free to post your question in the SUPlugins Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials forum.

Here are some of the most frequently asked and answered questions in the Podium Browser FAQ.

A Note about keyword search: Podium Browser's keyword search at this point is very, very general and will search the entire database for any word that has the keyword in it. For example if you search for Wall lights and key in Wall with All categories, you will get hundreds of hits. However, if you combine a keyword search with a category selection, you will be more likely to find relevant results.

For example, if you search: Category - Light Fixture and Keyword - Wall, you will get all the Wall light fixtures that are in the Light Fixture category (at least ones that have been tagged with the word wall).

This will enable you to create your kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, exteriors and landscape designs in SketchUp effectively.
