Hey guys! In your Odoo implementation, are you able to change the window title on top for each page? 

For example, in this moment, I have « Ask a question - Odoo » for window title.

If you want to change it without installing the website module and/or you want to do it in an external module, check my answer to the same question on stackoverflow.

Sum up: you have to inherit the web.layout template and replace the title element, and extend the init method of the openerp.web.WebClient JS class, call super then add the line: this.set('title_part', {"zopenerp": "Your Title"});
