Search the Chrome Web Store or Firefox Add-ons for audio and video downloaders, and you’ll easily discover them. One of the reasons behind their popularity is that external media players such as VLC and SMPlayer offer more options and stability than their online equivalents. If you don’t want to look for a downloader add-on or extension or are worried that it may become incompatible with browser updates, you can try Sushi’s built-in audio and video options.

Sushi Browser’s mainstay definitely is its tab splitting feature. This involves dividing the browser window’s frame between two or more tabs.
There are other power-user-oriented browsers which do this, such as Vivaldi and Tungsten, but Sushi arguably has the most dynamic approach. Continue reading “Sushi Browser Can Do This That The Average Browser Can’t: Tab Splitting”
Update: Kura has created a solution for this per this GitHub issue. You can look at the following post as a description as to how the registry works in regards to browsers.
Windows 10 users likely are familiar with its settings app by now which Microsoft wants to be a replacement for the Control Panel. Indeed, Microsoft took away some functionality of the Control Panel with the Fall Creators’ Update by diverting default app selections to within the settings.

After three weeks of work, Kura released 0.14.0, the first version of this major release, on January 11 followed by 0.14.1 a day later. This release is best signified by the newly integrated video converter.
The video conversion function uses HandBrake, an open-source video transcoder. HandBrake uses tools such as Libav, x264, and x265 for conversion.
This includes audio, as well. In this case, audio can be extracted and converted using FFmpeg, an open-source collection of libraries and tools to process and manipulate multimedia content.
Kura introduced tracking protection into Sushi Browser in version 0.8.0. This is similar to but different than an advertisement blocker, which was introduced into the browser in an earlier version.

I discovered Sushi Browser around version 2.0, and since then, it has become my favorite browser to use. It’s not perfect, but it has progressed nicely, considering that it is maintained by only one person, Kura52. I’ve noticed some errors with the browser, one of which is technical in nature, I believe. By technical, I mean that it may not be so much a glitch with Sushi as it is a general limitation of browser architecture. I’m not entirely sure about this because I have no experience with browser development.
Kura52, creator of Sushi Browser, released versions 0.13.0 and 0.13.1 on January 8, 0.13.2 on January 9, 0.13.3 on January 12, 0.13.4 and 0.13.5 on January 14, and 0.13.6 on January 16. 0.13.0 has the most updates, and the others are minor releases.
