There are already many web browsers and many of them offer many features, but for some reason it is that everyone is working to launch new browsers or to make existing ones run more smoothly. As an example we have in Servo, the browser in development is an important part of Mozilla. If fluency is important to you and you can sacrifice other functions, the browser Min it is a very good choice.
The project’s developers define the use of Min as “a more elegant and faster way to navigate.” At least on my computer, which currently has the standard version of Ubuntu installed, this “Fast” is true, Especially when opening the application. While Firefox takes its time, Min opens much faster, so much so that I was surprised when I opened it to talk a little about it in this post.
The new version includes the possibility of search for any text that is on any page. On the other hand, too includes actions which are used as the! bangs from DuckDuckGo, some commands I use every day in the search engine I’ve been using for years. Like these! Bangs, using Min’s browser actions is as simple as typing the “!” (Without the quotes ”) followed by what we want to do. In addition to! Bangs from DuckDuckGo, the default engine that uses this lightweight browser, these actions are available:
- ! Settings – open the settings.
- ! Back – goes back.
- ! Forward – go forward.
- ! Screenshot – takes a screenshot of the current tab.
- ! Clearhistory – clears history.
- ! Task – switch to a task by name or number.
- ! Newtask – creates a new task.
- ! Movetotask “- moves from the current tab to a task.
Min 1.4 also includes Yandex as a search engine option, it has been updated to use Electron 1.2.7, uses the latest version of EasyList, and bug fixes have been added.
