Don't get all too excited though, it's like they rushed it out - address bar doesn't hide, some advanced setting FC the browser, zooming is crappp & most important to me: it does not have textflow

Has this browser been updated at all. I love the speed at which it works but I feel like chrome is the only browser getting any new features/improvements
