What's new in this release

Redesigned PDF Viewer

1 7 0-pdfviewer

The PDF viewer (based on PDF.js) has gotten a redesign. It's now faster, has a design that fits better with the rest of the browser, and supports printing, saving, and find-in-page.

Back button (by @SpecialBomb)

1 7 0-backbutton

Starting in this release, there's finally a back button! If you're used to the swipe gestures and want to turn it off, we've also added an option for that to the settings page.

Progress bars (by @danfragoso)

1 7 0-progressbar

When a page is taking too long to load, a progress bar will now show up at the top of the tab so that you know the page is still loading.

[beta] Windows UI

1 7 0-winui

With the help of @ProPuke, we've added a new UI for Windows that looks better, takes up less space, and fits in better with other applications. Please try it out, and file issues if you notice any problems!

New languages

Thank you to all of the people who have provided translations! If you're interested in translating Min, take a look at these instructions.

New in this release:

Dark Theme

Added by @PandawanFr

Min now has a dark theme. To enable it, go to Preferences, and choose "Enable dark mode" under "Appearance".

screen shot 2016-10-12

Min will automatically switch to the dark theme at night, so your screen is easier on your eyes.

Other Changes

  • Menu bar hiding. Previously, the menu bar was always shown on Linux and Windows, which made the window more cluttered. Now, you can press the alt key (or any key combination you choose) to hide or show the menu bar.
  • Added a menu item to save the current page.
  • When you open the task overlay and delete the current task, Min will now switch to the most recent task, rather than the first one.
  • Added a menu item to switch to full screen (by @City-busz).
  • Switched the keyboard shortcuts for closing all tabs and creating a new task. Command (or control) + n now creates a new task, and shift + command/control + n closes all tabs. This makes it harder to close all of your open tabs by mistake.
  • Switched to a better way of saving the window size (by @tensor5).
  • Upgraded to Chrome 53/Electron 1.4.3.
  • Other bug fixes.

New in this release:

Full text search

Previously, full-text search was only available for bookmarks. Starting in Min 1.4, the full text of every page is searchable. Every page you visit is automatically saved, and search results are shown in the searchbar along with other history results.

Browser actions

Min includes many keyboard shortcuts, but shortcuts are hard to discover and remember. Now, Min also includes browser actions, which let you type commands from the searchbar. Type "!", and you'll see a list of browser commands, along with !bangs if you have DuckDuckGo set as a search engine. Currently, the available actions are:

  • !settings - open settings
  • !back - go back
  • !forward - go forward
  • !screenshot - take a screenshot of the current tab
  • !clearhistory - clear all history
  • !task - switch to a task, either by number or by name. "!task 1" switches to the first task. "!task shopping" switches to a task named "shopping"
  • !newtask - creates a new task
  • !movetotask" - moves the current tab to a task

If you have a suggestion for a new action, open an issue here.

Other changes

  • Added Yandex as a search engine option.
  • Updated to Electron 1.2.7.
  • Updated to the latest version of EasyList.
  • Bug fixes.
