The Speed Dial entries now have a more modern, square look.
Search made simpler. Your search query will now be kept intact in the combined search and address bar. It’s simple to change and refine your search or to try the same search with another search engine.
WebRTC support. You can now do video calls within your mobile browser. You could try this out by visiting appear.in — no registration or login required, and it’s free.
Instant news on your Speed Dial. We are experimenting with showing some news items on the Speed Dial for easy access.
Note that this update requires some new permissions: Bluetooth, vibration, modify audio settings and record audio needed for WebRTC and HTML5 Vibration API support.
