Why Every WordPress Professional Should Reconsider Their Default Browser

By January 03, 2017

I conceived of Ghost Browser as a solution to a set of problems that kept coming up in WordPress projects and making me say ‘there has to be a better way’. Day in and day out I realized that my web browser (Firefox, then Chrome about 6 months after it came out) was working AGAINST me. If you are anything like me, you want to do a great job on your work, do it quickly and get on with the other things in life that don’t require you be at your desk. At the...

We’ve Enhanced the Browser’s Startup Behavior

In our last release that included the Projects feature, we removed the ‘Start where you left off’ feature because it conflicted with smooth running of Projects. That seemed to be a bigger issue than we thought it would be, so we accelerated our plans to replace the functionality. Today we released version 1.0.3.5, which adds a setting that will let you launch your home Project, automatically, when you open the browser. This is essentially the same as the pick up...

We’re Removing the Browser Login

When we launched Ghost Browser in beta three months ago, we wanted to see if people thought it was as useful as we did. We knew that was the primary question we had to answer. But there were also a few other things we did not know: How would people use it? Would they use it every day like we do? How could we monetize it in a way that would honor our users but also the team that’s been working on building it for over the past year? What kind of licensing would we need...
