The Surfy web browser for Windows Phone 8 that launched a few years ago has received a major update today, bringing with it a new user interface and better downloading features.
Here's what's new in the app, which has the version number of 5.14:
- New larger, easier to use, tabs.
- Improved background downloading with Pause and Resume.
- Tabs are hidden with a drag-up gesture.
- Tabs are also automatically hidden after a short period and can be revealed using a drag-down gesture.
- Drop-down tab menu. Tabs are also closed with a double tap.
- Virtualization improvements for high-memory devices.
- Fixed back navigation issue.
- Fixed context menu being shown off-screen occasionally.
- New Logo and Iconography.
- Numerous other enhancements and bug fixes.
Surfy is free to download and can be used with up to three tabs, but an in-app purchase of $1.99 allows the browser to use up to six open tabs.
