What’s new in version 6.2.2

  • The bookmarks sync feature via WebDAV is now able to either save the bookmarks as HTML file or as PLIST file (the latter was the only format tah was supported before). The format is chosen based on the file extension that is configured for the bookmarks file (the file extension ".html" saves the file in HTML format, the extension ".plist" saves the file as PLIST). The HTML format allows direct export/import from/to other browsers, but because many bookmarks features of iCab are not available in other browsers, these can get lost when exchanging the bookmarks with other browsers. The PLIST format is more compact and will always preserve all data, but other browsers won't support it.
  • Bugfix: Changing the favorites folder in the bookmarks did not immediately save the bookmarks.
  • Bugfix: Solves an issue when FavIcons could not be loaded and then a wrong icon was shown
  • Bugfix: The option "JavaScript is allowed to change the window size" is now ignored if the window is currently opened as Tab. This way no other Tabs in the same window will be resized anymore.
  • Bugfix: The option to close the downloads window as soon as the last download has finished does no longer depend on the option to remove the download entry when the download has finished.
  • Bugfix: The option "Video playback requires user interaction" was not enabled under macOS 10.13

v6.2 is out. The release notes: - -> New Feature: Tab Groups • Tab Groups can be used to save all the Tabs of a window as a unit (group) so the groups can be re-opened later again easily again. Open tab groups will automatically remember all the changes within the group (like links which were opened, tabs opened or closed etc), so when re-opening a group, their latest state will be restored. Tab Groups can be managed via new „Tabs“ menu and via sidebar. - New Feature: Sidebar • It is now possible to have a sidebar in browser windows (via „View“ menu or via button in the browser toolbar). The sidebar allows easy access to the „page overview“ (directly jump to each section or paragraph of the current web page), the „link overview“ (list of all links of a web page), and the „tab groups“ (easy access to tab groups). - New Feature: QR Codes • All links, bookmarks, etc within the App can be displayed as QR code from within the contextual menus. This makes it easy to open them in a smartphone because it is possible to scan the addresses instead of typing them in manually. The QR codes can be also saved as file by simply dragging them to the Finder. - Bugfix: a workaround for a bug of the macOS solves issues with „data“ URLs which include a fragment identifier - Bugfix: „data“ URLs did not work when used directly in the address bar - Bugfix: Mac AppStore links should now open correctly within the Mac AppStore App

Oddly, v6.1.5 won't download, even if you attempt to get it from the dev website! However, it updates as nicely as ever form within the app itself. If you save installers, save that resulting copy after installing the update.

A friend of mine recommended this to me and it works really well and has a very nice set of built-in functions. Nice app for its price.
