Hi Everyone, I just want to say i've not quit development on Mars, there is some features that i'm struggling to get in before the 0.1 release but i'm ready for the challenge, for now i'll be doing little bits of work on Mars so i can focus on Orion's 1.0 release then my attention will be fully on Mars :) and getting the first release of it out.

If you have any questions at all please comment below and i'll try to respond as quick as i can.

Thanks,
Jack

In 1.0 of Orion I've removed the glitchy animation with the toolbar when scrolling and gone with the stock google one and it looks much nicer and I've made the scrollbars hide when not in use on bookmarks and history, I've been very busy today, Orion 1.0 is in it pre alpha stages at the moment but I'll keep you all posted as development progresses

This weekend i have been doing a little bit of work on Orion and i've added quite a few touches that your all going to love.

New Features / Enhancements

- Incognito mode
- Ad blocking
- Removed less used overflow options to nav drawer
- Full screen mode (Hiding actionbar and statusbar)
- Redesigned about screen
- Check for updates option in settings
- Removing the Speedy toggle by default but theres an option to add it back
- Revised back and forward buttons that are disabled when you can't go back or forward
- Restart Option in nav drawer
- Restart Dialog when applying the Dark mode theme
- Revised icons (a few different ones and making them smaller)
- Making floating action buttons match the accent color except the stop button
- And the Brand new blue icon inspired by Mars :)

So yes i've been very very busy on Orion and there is one other announcement I'm dropping 0.9 and going straight to 1.0 and it should be done by the end of August for release :)


So i hope you like what i've implemented so far in Orion 1.0 i've got many more features i want to add before the app is final so i'll get back to work,

Thanks,
Jack

Great overall design! The only thing that's bothering me is the tab design. Don't really know why, so maybe I'm wrong!

Hi Today i've added three new settings to Orion and made a nice tweak that goes with one of the settings nicely,

Settings
- Option for Dark Status bar icons for Android Marshmalow and Higher
- Option to keep the Toolbar visible when scrolling
& an Option for Phones to Hide the Stop webpage loading FAB

Tweak
Making the overflow menu, and nav drawer listing of Refresh change to stop when webpages are loading

So i hope you like these new tweaks for Orion 1.0,

Orion 1.0 is in development alpha at the moment and i'll give more details on it as development continues.

Thanks,
Jack

+Jack Roberts​ is there a way to optimize mars or Orion so they stream video quicker? I love Orion but it buffers for a long time when I have videos on the page I'm browsing... Keep up the awesome work

I heard loud and clear and I've added more padding on the left for phones and maybe adding more.

Is tap and hold on fab (Floating Action Button) to open incognito tab, in mars in the tab switcher for Phones acceptable if not i'll make it a menu option

Just installed the new factory image and all my apps work fine and i've fixed embarrasing annoyance and one bug,

when you add a bookmark and then add a folder for the first time it would crash and thats fixed.

and again when you go to select a folder from the list it would highlight in the gingerbread yellow and now thats fixed to the material design white

so i'll now be fixing a few more bugs then i'll be having a look at features
