Shiira 2.0 goes official

David Chartier

We've seen the betas for quite some time now, but Shiira v2.0 - the feature-packed open source browser based on the same WebKit that powers Apple's Safari - has gone official.

  • Tab Exposé (yep: Exposé comes to browser tabs)
  • Sharing bookmarks with Safari
  • Side drawer showing bookmarks and history
  • Search field with choice of search engine
  • Cache control panel
  • Window appearance switching (Aqua and Metal)
  • Enable/disable favicon with bookmark
