JxBrowser 6.6 is Released

JxBrowser 6.6 is now available for download.

The major change in this release is upgrade of the Chromium engine to version 51.0.2704.106, which also brings several changes to JxBrowser system requirements.

In November 2015 Google announced the end of Chrome/Chromium’s support for Windows XP, as well as Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple. Starting with Google Chrome/Chromium 50 these platforms are not supported at all. Since JxBrowser 6.6 is based on Chromium 51, support of these platforms has been dropped as well.

Except for Chromium engine upgrade, in this version we introduced a new functionality that allows receiving notifications when the spell checker has checked the text on the loaded web page. Using it you can get information about spelling mistakes on the web page.
Several critical issues reported by JxBrowser customers have also been resolved in this update.

For the full list of the features and improvements in this version, please see the Release Note record.
