Stargon Browser 5.8.0

Major update history.

  • Patch related to tab memory.
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes.

hello, It’s been a while since I greeted you with an update.
This version has several changes related to tabs.
Tab-related changes are as follows.

  1. Reduced tab memory usage. (Memory usage consumed by multiple tabs)
  2. The number of tabs has been changed to be at least 0. (All tabs can be closed)
  3. When closing the current tab in tab view, the user can now select the tab without loading the previous tab.

Other changes are as follows:

  1. The state of the loading bar changes smoothly when loading the web.
  2. Changed so that Android notification permissions can be selected when downloading on Android 13 or higher devices.
  3. Web dark mode has been changed to prioritize web theme algorithms. (In accordance with Chromium policy, forced dark mode has been removed. If the web view is not the latest, it operates in the same way as before.)
  4. At Google’s request, the target version has been changed to Android 13.
  5. Performance improvements and bug fixes.

In the case of bugs, we have corrected and updated the issues that we can confirm. Some problems cannot be fixed because they are special issues. Therefore, if any bugs have not been fixed or you encounter new issues, please feel free to report them.

We would like to thank those who provided support and comments.
thank you

    • If the website loads differently even though the user agent is the default, it may be because the Android system webview is not up to date. Android system webview can be updated after searching for system webview in the Google Store. (If the operating system installed on your device is Android 7, 8, or 9, please update Chrome to the latest version and enable Chrome if it is disabled)
      If this is not your problem, it may be because you have changed your user agent. In this case, please reset the Stargon settings again.

    • Depending on the user agent, many things on Google may appear differently. If you have never changed your user agent, please try updating your system webview to the latest version. If this is not the problem, a detailed explanation seems necessary.
      We will update and modify the file manager function so that it can upload files in the sdcard you mentioned.

  3. First of all thank you for making such powerful adblock browser ! it is really powerful but please ! Consider adding Adguard filters because easylist is not enough to block all ads especially video ads but adguard does really good, I am saying this of my practical experience to adding my own rules from adguard on which website easylist not blocked ads
    You are wondering why I am not using custom filters to add adguard ? I did but nothing helped.
    You can add adguard base + adguard mobile ads and remove easylist because it is already in adguard.
    Please if possible and you have spare time for this please do it I really don’t want to leave this browser because of video ads .
    I used many browser but never like this.
    Thanks again!

    • For reference, there is a list of Ad Guard filters in the “Add Filter” menu at the top right of Ad Filter. Even if you apply AdGuard, it still doesn’t work perfectly. (Because of the wide range of methods supported by AdGuard…)
      Thank you for your good comments.

  4. Hi, there,
    I can’t add Qwant, Startpage or another custom search engine as default search engine.
    Please fix it.

  5. Absolute impressive, lightweight browser,
    need some features to improve : open link into representative app some works, some does not:
    works: YouTube, Gmail

    • hello. We are planning to add that feature.
      I think it will be difficult this time. We will add it to the next version.
      Thanks for your comment.
