The long-anticipated OTA-11 update for Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu Tablet devices is just around the corner, and today we’ll have a quick look at what’s coming in the Web Browser app.
Canonical’s technical lead in the product strategy division, apps team, Mr. Olivier Tilloy, has published details about some of the features included in the Web Browser app of the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system, which will be added as part of the soon-to-be-released OTA-11 update.
Therefore, the updated Web Browser app has promised to improve the Google Hangouts experience for all form factors, including Canonical’s new Ubuntu Tablet, the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, and it looks like the media permission request dialog has been redesigned to be more user-friendly.
Continuing, the Web Browser app will now visually identify the list of items that are being used for opening new pages in the Ubuntu Settings app with a progression symbol, it will also properly handle window-level keyboard shortcuts, and further polish the memory-pressure handler used for unloading tabs running in the background.
