- This update includes many interesting suggestions sent by several users through the “contact” section in our website in addition to the latest browser engine versions and bug fixes
- The search box used in web browser tabs now shows information about the number of matches currently identified and the current position in the search results. It also has a couple of buttons to move the search box to the top or the bottom of the screen.
- In case you need to zoom in a web page but the usual zoom steps applied when you pressed control key while you moved the mouse wheel button weren’t what you wanted then try the new zoom key combination for a precise zoom control. Press control and shift while you move the mouse wheel button and you’ll increment or decrement the zoom value in much smaller steps.
- Other user requests added in this version are a new context menu option to copy the images in web browser tabs to the clipboard and an easy way to replace the URL in the browser address. For this reason, the address is selected automatically when the user clicks on it from another control.
- Now the installer creates 2 desktop shortcuts. One of them is the traditional shortcut to run the browser in normal mode but the new one opens a browser in private mode. This shortcut may come handy if you prefer to start BriskBard directly in private mode without using the existing content menu options to open bookmarks and speed dial links in private mode.
