At First

  • New Workspace Update Warning!!

**If you get problem relate to “Simple Tab Groups”, Please disable workspaces on preferences**

If you use new Workspaces, please use “customize toolbar” & Drag Workspaces button to toolbar.

  • Why “Progressive Web Apps” feature only can be used on Windows?

It occurred by OSes compatibility problem. PWA feature is XUL based. So It means affected by XUL limit. On Windows, There is window manager API. But, On Mac & Linux, There are no same APIs.

If we get a contributor who can write C+ language & has good knowledge about Linux or Mac window, Maybe we can release same feature on these OSes.

🌟 What’s new!

  • Say hello to new workspaces! Re-implemented workspace take us to more productivity.

Legacy workspaces is a prototype level feature. Because of it, It has lots of bugs. New workspaces is different from legacy one.

What Workspaces changed:

  • The workspace now works in multiple windows, and all windows are separated.
  • Workspace toolbar buttons are now movable. This allows you to use the workspace feature wherever you like.
  • Workspaces are enabled by default. However, when there is less than one workspace, it no longer interferes with the display/hide of tabs, making it compatible with extensions.
  • Made some improvements to popups for workspace management.
  • Added icons to the context menu for moving tabs between workspaces, and improved appearance.
  • When you create a new workspace based on your feedback, Floorp will provide a workspace name for users, such as “New Workspace,” instead of deciding on a name first.
  • Improved workspace’s toolbar button’s popup design.
  • The design of the popup used when renaming a workspace has been improved.
  • We remove all restrictions on characters that can be used in workspace name, and you can now use all characters, including emojis and symbols, as described above image.
  • The design of the workspace icon has been adjusted to make it easier to see! Thanks:@CutterKnife_

  • We’ve changed the location of workspace settings and added a new workspace tab to the sidebar on Preferences page.

  • We’ve changed the technology we use around tabs in PWA and Split View to improve performance. Additionally, PWA detection behavior is now more accurate.
