Epiphany 3.27.2 Improves GNOME Web Apps, Firefox Sync

Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 15 November 2017 at 06:06 AM EST. 8 Comments
Epiphany 3.27.2 is now available as the latest web browser release in the road to next year's GNOME 3.28 desktop.

One of the big changes with this Epiphany browser development release is restructuring how "web apps" are handled. They are now treated more like "silos, rather than prisons." This bug report describes more of the reworking of these GNOME Web Apps. The updated implementation allows these web applications to support tabs, allowing external links, button changes, and more.

Epiphany 3.27.2 also fixes some issues with the bookmark popover, fixes for the safe browsing implementation, several Firefox Sync fixes, restores search engine support, fixed the incognito mode theme, and other changes.

The list of the Epiphany 3.27.2 changes can be found via this commit.
