Snapshot 1.5.618.8 – Drag tabs between windows and performance improvements

September 29, 2016

In today’s snapshot we provide the ability to drag tabs between windows. Unlike other browsers you can also drag tab stacks and tab selections.

If you haven’t used themes before, now is a great time to get started.
