GNOME's Epiphany Browser Is Quick To Working On 3.24 Features

It's been just over two weeks since GNOME 3.22 was released while already a ton of feature work has been landing in Epiphany, GNOME's Web Browser.

It's looking like the Epiphany web-browser update in GNOME 3.24 will be another feature-packed release. Some of the work that's landed in the past two weeks already includes a lot of work around redoing the browser's bookmarks support, removing obsolete code in different areas, a lot of work on sync support, asynchronous Storage Server support, a new preferences dialog user-interface, and more.

Most recently, Epiphany has added HTTPS Everywhere integration.

Additionally, Epiphany has relicensed its code. Epiphany switched from GPLv2+ to GPLv3+. The reason for moving to GPLv3+ appears to be over using GMP in the browser.

More details on the latest Epiphany happenings can be found via their Git repository.
