Snapshot – A focus on bugfixing

We are continuing to focus on bugfixing for an upcoming Beta, which means that many of the bugs you have highlighted are now getting more attention. Further work has gone into thumbnail generation (we have even more planned), we fixed a number of common Notes issues and we now respect your selected search engine for things like highlighted text. As a bit of further polishing of recent features, we also added a method for accessing typed history via the mouse. For all the details, check out the changelog below.

Typed History

We have made typed history a little more accessible to those of you who are heavy mouse users. When you open a new tab you now have a small downward facing arrow to the right of the address field. Click on this and you can access URLs you have typed previously.

Typed history button


We are trying out different search engines for our upcoming beta launch. There are multiple considerations when making decision on which search engine we choose to be our default. In this build, we chose Bing as default to see how everyone feels about it.
