GNOME 3.28 Desktop Will Add Google Safe Browsing Support to Epiphany Web Browser

As part of today’s GNOME 3.27.1 development release, the Epiphany web browser received a bunch of new features and improvements that will be available to all next spring when the GNOME 3.28 desktop environment launches officially.

For the GNOME 3.28 development cycle, the Epiphany web browser will probably get a lot of cool new features, but, for now, the first snapshot brings Google Safe Browsing support, a new address bar drop-down that makes use of the libdazzle library, and better support for the Flatpak universal binary format.

On top of that, the Epiphany 3.27.1 development release lets you access the web inspector while in application mode and improves import of bookmarks when no Firefox profile is present. Epiphany will also no longer disable navigation actions when clearing the history and correctly saves non-HTML (plain text, images) files.
