This application is perfect for multiple servers or just for displaying some stats remotely or doing quick control. For Trikarus it is used just sometimes, for example for some testing purposess. It does not replace the browser view completely because it does not deal with the printer's control tab - you will need to open this as a popup. Repetier Server Monitor can connect to local addresses like http://raspberrypi:3344 but it's more intended to deal with remote-only ressources.
Caveats of Repetier Server Monitor 1.1.0
- At the moment one Repetier Server instance cannot be configured multiple times by different addresses (like external address and local address at the same time). This makes it sometimes choosing not the quickest route
- local address does not work if encrypted by insecure SSL (like https://raspberrrypi:3345)
