Assets 7

In this release, we've been working on reorganizing Min's code into modules and switching to BrowserViews instead of webviews, so there are fewer changes than usual. However, we've still added a couple of new features:

Userscripts

Userscripts allow you to create scripts that run whenever a page is loaded, allowing you to modify their behavior. To create a userscript, first enable the option on the settings page:

userscripts

Then follow these instructions to create a script.

Custom search engines

Starting in this release, you can choose a search engine that isn't one of the options that is already included. To do this, choose the "custom" option on the settings page, and enter the URL of the search engine you want to use.

New languages

Also, we're running a survey as part of this release in order to decide what features to add in the future. You should be prompted to take the survey when you install 1.8 for the first time; if you're not, you can take the survey here.
