📑 Sessions

All your tabs belong to a session. You can have multiple named sessions to help you stay focused and organised. Switching between sessions is lightning fast.

🌍 Address bar

Smart address, title and search bar combined. You can put it at the top or at the bottom of your screen depending of your screen orientation.

🚦 Vertical tab panel

Reorder your tabs using long tap to drag and drop. Swipe right to move a tab to the trash. Recover tabs from the trash using panel tool bar.

🚥 Horizontal tab bar

Much like on your classic PC web browser. Most useful when using tablets and desktop modes such as Samsung Dex and Huawei EMUI Desktop. You can put it at the top or at the bottom of your screen.

⚙️ Tabs management

By default you should never need to push the new tab button. New tabs are spawned as you do searches or input addresses. However, if you like to have fewer tabs, you can adjust those settings to your liking.
