Ghostery Dawn Updates! March 2021

Hey there fellow beta testers!

The Ghostery Dawn evolution is nearly complete and we’re almost ready to launch. As we take one step closer, here are some details about this week’s update:

  • We have renamed Dawn’s private browsing window as “Ghost Mode", a nod to our spooky nature.

  • We have also updated the design of these tabs to better match what we have for our normal new tab (though, of course, in more ghostly colors).

  • We included some more straightforward text on these Ghost Mode tabs to let you know what this mode does and does not do so that you can continue to make well-informed decisions about your privacy.

  • We have translated some of the remaining elements in the new tab into German and French, so “Guten Tag” and “Bonjour” to our friends across the Atlantic!

Happy Browsing!

Hey there! Another Dawn update is here!

We’re cranking so fast we barely have time to write words and shove them at you. Here’s the new hotness in this week’s update:

  • This week’s build includes the Firefox 86 update, which you can learn about here. It has a lot of neat-o stuff in it.
  • We created a slick alternate to the browser theme to make the URL bar more differentiated from Firefox by replacing the box-y space with smoother, curved edging.
  • We’ve updated the styling of the Ghostery tracker stats, which gives these numbers a little more punch. We’re still working on this and will have some more updates in the next update.

Let us know what you think!

We created a slick alternate to the browser theme to make the URL bar more differentiated from Firefox by replacing the box-y space with smoother, curved edging.

Does this apply to both themes, neither of which appear to be updated recently and I am not quite sure what the before/after is. Not a big deal, just curious.

Hello @ribald ! Welcome to our forum!

As of now, it applies to the theme called Ghostery (Private).
Interesting that in the extensions panel, does not appear as if there’s a recent update, I shall bring this to the team!

We’re in continous work to make Dawn more Ghostery-looking, so stay tuned! And of course, let us know what you’re thinking of the browser!
