Many users told us that they love the new start page design, and they also want to have more options on it. We heard you and we're taking action!
Users now can easily access their most visited sites, Bookmarks, History, Downloads, and Settings right from the start page. Furthermore, we added support for more gestures for video playback. Users can fast forward or backward with simple swipes.
We hope you enjoy Olympics with Puffin in this summer, and we will continue to build awesome apps for you.
