Could the name of the item, quest, shop or monster be added to the title bar of the page?

i.e;
Change Tip.It RuneScape Help :: Bestiary :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!
to
Tip.It RuneScape Help :: Bestiary :: %monstername% :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!

Change Tip.It RuneScape Help :: RuneScape Item Database :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!
to
Tip.It RuneScape Help :: Runescape Item Database :: %itemname% :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!

Change Tip.It RuneScape Help :: RuneScape Quest Database :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!
to
Tip.It RuneScape Help :: Runescape Quest Database :: %questname% :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!

and

Change Tip.It RuneScape Help :: RuneScape Shop Database :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!
to
Tip.It RuneScape Help :: RuneScape Shop Database :: %shopname% :: The Original RuneScape Help Site!

It is already there ;) There is a beta version of the new tip.it website ( open.tip.it ) and if you go to a monster you can see the path in the title bar: http://open.tip.it/b...y/view/1576-nex

The whole path is longer than the typical length of a tab to display what you're actually looking at.

I mean that if I open up 5 different beastiary entries, I see basically "Tip.it RuneScape Help >> Be..." 5 different times without really knowing which is which.

It would be more helpful to me, personally, if it displayed <entry> >> Tip.it RuneScape Help or something.

I agree with Kimberly, would be better if the new title's on the Beta were kinda of inverted, so that if your tabs get smaller you have a more useful title to spot.

Eg instead of Tip.it Runescape Help >> Beastiary >> View >> Nex

Could get rid of "view" as its pointless anyway as beastiary is obvious the main page then beasitary >> x is obviously a monster.

But then reorganise it as:

Nex >> Beastiary >> Tip.it Runescape Help

Means on tiny tabs you can see at the very least the first few letters to know what your viewing in that tab, and with less tabs open you get a more in-depth title

Even with only my basic tabs open on my laptop I rarely see beyond Tip.it Runesca... on the tabs, and on my desktop with its massive res even then I don;t get the full page title.
I'd even go so far as to suggest where common place acronyms exist to use them in the title bar first
eg:
Instead of:
Elemental Workshop 3 >> Quests >> Tip.it Runescape Help
Have like:
EW3 - Elemental Workshop 3 >> Quests >> Tip.it Runescape Help

That way even on tiny tabs you would know exactly what it was you had pulled up.

I think it should definitely be in the opposite direction, with the item name etc. first. Also I agree that the 'pages > view' part could be removed.
Will look into what possibilities there are and whats the best option to choose.

We've shuffled things around a bit so this should now be all sorted.
