Frost 2.5 Released

A note to Android 2.2 (Froyo) users: please backup your stash prior to updating. There is a bug in your version of Android that will wipe your stash when updating the app. Please see the FAQ for instructions on how to backup Frost and this post for more details.


We just released update 2.5 for Frost. As I mentioned in our previous post, we focused on the browser interface for this release. Our goal was to eliminate clutter in the options menu, and we’ve achieved this by moving a lot of common browser actions to a quick action menu in the tab bar. In future updates we will be working towards eliminating the options menu entirely as more devices are released without any hardware menu buttons.

The next biggest change is the addition of tab sessions. From now on, whenever you log into your stash you will be prompted to restore the tabs from your previous private session. Note that in order for your tab session to be saved, you need to be logged into your stashes.

Finally, there are countless optimizations and bug fixes. We’ve fixed some compatibility issues with some websites like Gmail and Twitter, as well as changed the way batch operations are handled to improve reliability and performance.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with feedback using the contact form at the top of the page.
