Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 13 December 2016 at 06:00 AM EST. 13 Comments
Epiphany 3.23.3 was tagged on Monday as the newest development release of this web-browser update being aligned for GNOME 3.24.

Epiphany 3.23.3 has disabled its experimental HTTPS Everywhere support by default and it's also disabled by default the experimental Firefox Sync support. While disabled by default, the Firefox Sync support was improved in this release with better error handling. There were also improvements for its HTTPS Everywhere support, but still not good enough for keeping it on by default yet.

Epiphany 3.23.3 has also restored support for importing/exporting bookmarks, exposing the homepage setting, removing the progress bar from the browser's UI, and a variety of fixes.

A complete listing of the Epiphany 3.23.3 browser changes via this Git commit. GNOME 3.24 with Epiphany 3.24 will be released in March, so expect many more changes to still come to it and other GNOME components in the days/weeks ahead.
