Traditional shortcuts ⌨️ • Typing whoooo? 🎯 • Pretty Magic ✨
Hey hey, it’s Ali 👋 – Long time! We’ve been pretty heads down recently, so I’m very excited to share our latest and greatest version. Buckle up and enjoy the update! 😁
Traditional Shortcuts ⌨️
You've asked, we've delivered! Most popular browser shortcuts, like ⌘T, are now natively supported and should function seamlessly.
We’ve also made it easier to switch on all traditional shortcuts, even the obscure ones, from your app preferences.
Who’s typing? 🕵️
We designed SigmaOS to make you feel fast when going through your tasks.
But sometimes, it was hard to tell if you’re typing, or if a single-key shortcut was gonna fire. So we made it clearer! ✅
Pretty Accent 💄
We revisited the “Magic” theme to better match the website aesthetics. We hope you enjoy the new look!
Easier Split Screen ✂️
We’ve completely redesigned the split screen home to make it easier to use. We hope you like it!
