Hi guys, the latest update is great! Congratulations! The best browser for those who look for Chrome another better and without ads!

My problem, which I mentioned in the opportunity here, has to do with support for push notifications for websites . They don't work for me. The fastest examples without Twitter and Facebook. On Twitter, once the pop-up window request is confirmed, simply "browser not supported". For Facebook, once the pop-up window request is accepted, the screen simply freezes.

I don't know if that is a problem in Bromite or simply not a feature available in this application.

Thank you.

Already answered :

The upstream bug report for this issue was https://github.com/bromite/bromite/issues/201 please read there about my findindgs back then.

If there is some functionality that works with Chromium but not with Bromite, then it means it is related to the Play Store integration, which Bromite removes. Feel free to investigate on that.

I just wanted to leave a suggestion here. I understand that Bromite is Chrome without advertising and that is Great, I would only like a function that seems silly but that would help me and is to have a "go up" button .

An example is how Yandex or Samsung Internet uses it

Me gustaría mucho ver esta posiblidad en Bromite.

I love Bromite.

Hi, great job on this browser.

I was wondering if there is some flag, or any other way, to increase the number of "quick access" shortcuts on the intro screen, when you open a new tab. Right now, there are 16 such icons/shortcuts on my intro screen, but I would like to increase this number, and add an extra line of 4 more icons to the screen.

Thanks again for this browser, really appreciate it.

@csagan5 will there be a new build with the two security vulnerabilities fixed?
https://thehackernews.com/2019/11/chrome-zero-day-update.html?m=1
These two CVEs affect only the Desktop version of Chromium: https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/2019/10/stable-channel-update-for-desktop_31.html

There will be a new release, but it's irrelevant for those two CVEs.

Is the fdroid repo down?
https://github.com/bromite/bromite/issues/400

Just for now i check the latest update and it has a feature that works like what httpsEverywhere did. Nice, i love it!!!
I am not aware of this feature in Chromium. Do you have a feature link?

"Preload pages for faster browsing" toggle fix still not working
Yes, the issue is still open: https://github.com/bromite/bromite/issues/375

I have already increased the rows from the default, but I do not know what will happen if we increase it more on devices with smaller screens.

I wonder if someone has a UI trick to get around this problem I've had for quite a while.

If I try to copy the current tab's URL to the clipboard by holding the URL bar (which starts out with the entire URL highlighted), as soon as I long press it to get the popup copy/paste controls, the highlight shrinks to something less than the entire URL and I have to select "Select All" again and then copy again.

I don't want to use the share feature because I am typically copying and pasting multiple page URLs into the same document.

I don't have this issue with any of the 4 other browsers installed on that device. (Running Nougat)

TIA
