Modern Browser Features


Doesn't it feel like new browser features have been missing for a long time? That's because they have.

As we use them to access the internet, web browsers are at the center of our computers, tablets, and mobile devices—To the extent that Google decided to make Chrome Browser the center of its homonymous Linux-based OS. Yet browsers took the place they have now not so long ago.

To match the internet's ever-increasing importance, in the last 20 years browsers have endured constant updates in a short period. Mainly, to deal with the more complex media and web content that began to appear. Aside from under-the-hood advances, during this time lots of useful tools and endless extensions arrived as well. But they were not enough.

Withal, traditional browser features are the same from back in the day and haven't changed that much since, at least if we have in mind today's standards of browser usability.

To change that, along came Stack.

What can Stack’s browser features do that traditional browsers can't?

Stack deals with nowadays complex use cases of browsers by design. Stack comes with several modern browser features we will examine next. Each Stack feature acknowledges the former way of doing things and proposes new ones.

Side-by-side windows

When they were introduced, tabs were more than great. They were perfect. Tabs let you open multiple pages without having to open infinite system windows. Yet, tabs lack order and have become detrimental since computer memory allows them to pile up endlessly, something perhaps beyond what original designers could foresee, since at the time computing didn't rely on the browser as much as today.

Stack, in turn, organizes web pages not with tabs but into cards. Cards fit side by side on the screen. In this way, they make good use of the screen space and provide a unified view of your apps and web pages. This approach saves you from having to change between tabs every time you want to check something.

Multiple account login

Perhaps one of Stack's most relevant modern browser features. As of today, web services —including social media and email— require having an account to work. But the thing is that, for multiple reasons, the majority of users have more than one account on the same web page.

Yet, conventional browsers continue to provide support for one account per web page as if multi-accounting was an eccentricity and not a given. Incognito mode, for its part, isn't a good answer either, since the user session will only remain logged in as long as the Incognito window remains open.

Stack, in turn, offers support for multi-accounting by Private Session. Thanks to Private Session, you can mark, save and organize cards with as many accounts of a web service as you need.

Spaces - one of the best browser features

Since they continue to rely on tabs, conventional browsers are limited to showing pages and, to an extent, keeping your accounts in place. They offer little to nothing more than that to let you organize your browsing.

Spaces is one of Stack's modern browser features meant for helping you organize your browsing. Spaces are separated sets of web pages you can create. In this way, you can have a Space dedicated to a work project, another for one of your hobbies, another for research, and so on.

A modern interface and overall experience that boosts your productivity

None of these modern browser features would matter if Stack wasn't accessible to a broad audience. In this regard, Stack UX is designed to be as complex and distinct as it is intuitive and accessible thanks to its user-friendly learning curve.

In like manner, Stack comes with a helpful number of shortcuts. Shortcuts make Stack's organization system easy to understand and master.
