Free Forever Mode Improvements: You can reorder your Lite Apps any time, as often as you want, to change which 3 are your Free Forever Lite Apps.
Night Mode: When switching for the first time to Night Mode, the default page style is automatically set to Dark. Previously, this required an extra step of changing the style manually.
Estimated Reading Time in Reader View: When reading any article on the Web, Hermit automatically computes Estimated Reading Time and offers a quick shortcut to clean up the page and view it in Reader View, including fonts, formatting, and images.
We’ve logged 249 commits (that’s a lot!) since the last version, including performance enhancements and bug fixes.
Automatic AMP Redirection is no longer available: users encountered several navigation problems with AMP sites that did not configure their redirects correctly, and many AMP pages are broken in the wild, leading to a worse user experience than with the regular non-AMP page. We recommend Hermit’s Reader View as the recommended replacement, which works better for all pages (AMP and non-AMP).
Screen Orientation can now be set for each Lite App separately. Prefer to use your music synthesizer in landscape mode? Or Google Maps Go with your screen flipped so that the charger cable can be at the top? Yep, Hermit can do that!
