Better reader mode

Min has always had the ability to open pages in reader mode by clicking on the icon next to a tab, which reduces distractions, allows pages to load faster, and stops many common forms of tracking. Starting in this release, reader mode is more accurate at determining which parts of a page to include and which to leave out, and includes a sepia theme to make it easier to read for long periods. Additionally, Min now lets you automatically open pages on a site in reader mode, without having to click a button for every article you want to read.

After the second time you open an article from a site in reader mode, you'll be asked whether you want to turn it on automatically, or you can enable reader mode at any time by clicking on the gear icon in the upper-right corner:

Easier installation on Windows

Previously, running Min on Windows meant downloading a folder full of files, which was often confusing to use. Starting in this release, Min can now be installed by running a single installer, which is easier and simpler to run.

Translation changes

Updated translations for several languages:

Other improvements

  • Added a !closetask command to close tasks (by @brakkum)
  • The task overlay now scrolls up or down when you drag a tab near the edge of the screen.
  • You can now use the tab key to navigate through the tab overlay.

In this release, you'll also see an option to take a survey about how you use the tasks feature. The results of this survey will help improve the way tasks work; if you have any other ideas, you can also provide feedback here.
