Snapshot 1.0.340.7 – Silent Tabs For Users, Netflix support and HTML5 notifications

Today’s snapshot introduces a new feature, something we internally call “Silent Tabs For Users”—an easy way to kill annoying sounds in the browser. We also added Netflix support, HTML5 notifications and of course fixed a bunch of bugs.

The following are a few more essential things that are needed before we move to final. With each one checked off, we get closer!

Silent Tabs For Users

A few of you saw this in other browsers and requested that we implement it as well. As you know we value your feedback and are happy to try and accommodate. This is our initial implementation, so it just adds the basic feature but we are looking at ways to make this more powerful in the future. If you have thoughts or suggestions, give us feedback below.

Silent Tabs For Users

Netflix support

It wasn’t long ago that we added Proprietary (H.264/AAC and MP3) media support. Now we have done some extra work to get Netflix working as well.

Netflix in Chromeless UI

Tips: You might also want to switch to full screen or our Chromeless (reduced UI) mode to focus entirely on the movie, and remember to put the other tabs in STFU mode!

HTML5 Notifications

It is now possible for websites to send HTML5 notifications, but only after you agree. So don’t worry, you won’t be spammed!
