Dark Mode Improvements: The new Dark Mode works much better than the previous implementation, on many more sites as well. Try it out!
Gesture Navigation Support: On recent Android versions that support Gesture Navigation, Hermit now fully supports edge-to-edge display. When in a Lite App, swipe in from the bottom 200 pixels to open the Bookmarks drawer (left edge) or Quick Settings (right edge). Any area above the bottom-most 200 pixels will invoke the system gesture (Back button behavior).
Configurable Content Blocker: Exclusively available to our Early Access subscribers, you can now select which specific kinds of content you would like to block in Hermit Lite Apps. Configurable categories include: Adware and Malware, Coin Miners, Misinformation, Hate, and Propaganda, Pornography, Gambling.
Tips Accepted with Gratitude: Got Premium for cheap many years ago? Happy with 5+ years of free updates? Got some extra Play Store credit lying around & want to show your support? You can send us tips (Coffee, Pizza, or a Meal!) through the App Settings all paid via Google Play.
Automatic Theme in Incognito Mode: Your phone’s status bar (icon area) now matches the colors of the sites you visit. If a theme color is too light, Hermit automatically makes the icons black (instead of the default white).
Better Compatibility in Incognito Mode: Hermit’s Incognito Mode was too strict for many web sites to work correctly, so we’ve relaxed a few restrictions to match what other browsers allow. Your data will still be deleted as soon as you exit Incognito Mode.
Better Feed Compatibility: Hermit now always adds a custom user agent to all outgoing feed fetch requests, which some sites require for their feeds.
More Prominent Buttons for Deleting, Sharing, and “Add to Home Screen”: In response to feedback from many of you, we’ve made these buttons more prominent in the Lite App Settings.
Improved Apps List: Huge improvements in drag-and-drop behavior, icon shadows, responsiveness, and animations.
Scriptlets Stay Open: If you close a Lite App with the Scriptlets section expanded in Quick Settings, then it stays expanded for easier access the next time.
