Snapshot 1.0.380.2 – Bug fixes and new appearance Settings

Even though we’re focusing a lot on bug fixing these days, we still find the time to have some fun and give you more settings.

Color Behind Tabs

New appearance settings

We love options, you all know that. So today we’re adding a new choice under our Appearance settings, called «Color Area behind Tabs». This essentially flips the UI coloring from the active tab to going behind the tabs. In addition to looking great, it’s also very useful if you keep a lot of separate windows open to distinguish them from each other.

New Setting

To enable this, go to Settings (Alt+p or ⌘,) → Appearance → Interface Color, and enable «Use Page Theme Color in User Interface», and check the radio button called «Color Area behind Tabs».

Bug fixes

We made WhatsApp Web work again so you can get back to keeping in touch with your friends. And if you’re a Mac user having issues with YouTube & Netflix videos not playing, that’s also fixed now.
