New extensions and 2.15 developments

9:15 am New features
  • Two generous people have contributed some new Epiphany extensions for you to try out. See the webpages of dieguito and Stefan Suhr. A couple of highlights: Undo tab close, Menu bar and toolbar besides each other, and Remove throbber. Thanks for the contributions!
  • Since the last post, there have been a couple of Epiphany minor releases (2.14.1, 2.14.2, 2.15.1, 2.15.2, 2.15.3) that went by unannounced. The stable branch has received mostly polish and a few translation updates. In the 2.15 branch, support for mozilla 1.7 has been dropped, GTK 2.9.x is required and the code is ported to the new notebook API. And here is a small hint about what else is being worked on for the next release:

    Please note that the UI isn’t finished yet! :-)

    Way to go guys… I’m currently checking out Epiphany because on my P3-866-512MB box Firefox tends to be rather slow, especially when using WordPress and its popup dialogs and WYSIWYG editor.

    Ever thought Epiphany is a unsupported, slowly developed browser that deserved to be replaced by Firefox in Ubuntu… But I was *so* totally wrong… Keep up the good work!

    I know it, i know it!
    it shows that your spellchecking is still bugged (highlights corrextly spelled words) and doesnt use the native gtk stuff for it, since the underline is different to lets say gedit.
