- Tabs now show the title of the tab’s content instead of a shortened version of the URL
Improved Fullscreen Video
- Status bar and other on-screen controls hidden now

Improved the progress bar
- Overall progress takes redirects into account
- Only disappears when it has completely finished loading (redirects included)
- Changed progress bar and pull-to-refresh colors to fit the app’s current color scheme
- Overflow menu option “Give a rating!” now hides to users that have placed a rating
- Greatly improved the efficiency of writing history
- Pull-to-refresh thinking its at the top of the page (where pull to refresh is then enabled) even when it’s not.
- (For nerds) This only occured on webpages with sticky headers (such as Google News and Reddit) This was because the browser cannot track every single scroll contained, it was tracking the sticky header’s scroll container and because that was stuck, it thought the whole webpage was also at the top.
