Stack 3.4 - The final update in this universe

Hello Stackers,

Hope you all are doing great.

It's been a long time…

You might be wondering if we are still alive.

Well yes, we are…

In fact, we are very alive! 😄

We are stronger than ever before.

We are 13 now in the team.

We just closed the 2.5M seed round.

We moved to a new office in Amsterdam.

And we're working harder than ever before!

---

In the past 2 years, we learned so much from you:

What worked and what did not work in Stack.

Which features solved problems and which were never used.

And now, with all this knowledge and experience, we are moving to the next level.

We are rebuilding Stack!

Rethinking and redesigning it to be much more performant, energy-efficient, faster, and cleaner.

We are releasing it in May and it’s not the only thing we’re releasing…

So stay tuned.

---

But, what happens with this version?

This is the final update of the existing Stack.

From the next year, our full focus shifts to Stack NEXT.

We will only update Chromium and fix crucial bugs if they appear.

⭐️ What's new in this update?

In this update we are expanding our free package with:

🧩 Access to Chrome Extensions

Even if you are not subscribed to Stack PRO, now you can install and use 1Password, Grammarly, Linguix, Lastpass, Dark Reader, and more. We will be adding extensions as we progress.

🛡️ Ad-Shield

Block those annoying ads and remove all data-trackers with Ad-Shield. Go to the Ad-Shield page from your Profile on Spacebar, turn it on, and enjoy ad-free browsing.

🌒 Dark mode

Click the moon icon on the SpaceBar to toggle the dark mode. This will darken not only the Stack UI but also the WebApps that support dark mode. E.g. Twitter, Reddit…


🤔 Why?

We think that all browsing features for personal use should be free. The only reason we had these features in PRO was to survive in 2020. You can read more on that here: https://stackbrowser.com/supporters#lesson-42

If you are subscribed to Stack PRO mainly to have access to any of these features, and you would not use PRO anymore, please let us know and we will refund your last payment immediately.

Our pricing philosophy is simple:

  • If one is using Stack for work and earning money, it would be fair to take a little cut from it.
  • If one wants to personalize an account and have unique design elements, it will be beyond the paywall.

So there will be more PRO features for collaboration, multiplayer work, and personalization in the future.

Basic browsing functionality, organization, navigation, and browser essentials, will be free forever.

⭐️ Other Changes:

  • 1Password - Integrated the most requested Chrome Extension
  • Simplify Gmail - Chrome extension
  • Scroll to the app by clicking on the card topbar
  • Ad-Shield enabled by default for new users
  • Fixed Google authorization
  • Live Chat icon is moved inside Native Cards menu
  • Shortcuts icon opens The Switch now
  • Upgraded Electron & Chromium
  • Lots of small bug fixes and improvements

🪐 Stack Next

We’ve already built the foundation and the first version of Stack Next with the new technology. And, we can already see an amazing improvement in speed, performance, and memory usage.

We will be working on it with full force in the coming months to make sure that in May, we release Stack we've all been waiting for so long.

If you want to be the first to explore the new Stack, you can join the waitlist here.

We’ve also published our story and the vision on our landing, which you can check out here: https://stackbrowser.com/story


Thank you all very much for staying with us and supporting us.

It is a pleasure being on this journey with you!

We wish you a great day!

New Card

August 20, 2021

Hey Stackers! 👋🏼

Here is a small update with a huge value for shortcut lovers and not only! 💨💨

The most requested shortcuts are finally here:

  • Use "⌘ + T" to instantly bring up the address-bar right where you are, type an URL or Search in Google, hit enter and open a new card right next to the active one!
  • Type "⌘ + W" to suspend an active card, press again to close it
  • Use "⌘ + ⇧ + T" to restore a closed card

For Windows you can use Ctrl + T, Ctrl + W and Ctrl + Shift + T shortcuts accordingly.

Scientists in UK have discovered that using shortcuts saves your time! 🙃

So, use shortcuts!

Save time!


🐛  Bugs Fixed

  • Synchronisation issue on a low network connection.
  • Correct space oder in space menu.
  • Slack notifications when card inactive.
