Continuing development focuses on adding thoughtful, integrated functionality while maintaining a minimal performance footprint. Recently added features include watching videos entirely within the front page, and a concise, information dense layout for expanded reviews. Nearly all articles can be read in their entirety without leaving the front page. As the nuances of some rare and large page types are explored, the last unexpandable content will also be available entirely on the front page. Performance increases are ongoing, with the average processing time per page having been reduced nearly ten fold and still seeing improvements.

Automatic updates have been enabled with this release. All following installs will remain up to date without user interaction.

One Column Front Page is confirmed to work in Firefox and Chrome though it may also work in other browsers. Firefox users will first have to install the fantastic Greasemonkey extension.
