Sizzy 0.25 is here 😍

CPU & performance improvements

We tried to get rid of all the performance problems, and now the CPU usage in Sizzy should be similar to using any other browser. We also improved the startup time by ~2 seconds (scientifically measured down to the last ms 😎)

However, if your website or web app takes 10% CPU, and you have 10 devices open in Sizzy, you should expect it to multiply its CPU usage by 10. Sizzy will always be resource-hungry because it's the only browser that shows multiple websites at once.

Our advice is to pay attention to animations and transitions in your website, because usually, they are the performance biggest problem, especially if displayed on multiple devices at once.

You can easily toggle animations and transitions in Sizzy with the Debug Styles plugin.

You can read more about improving the performance in Sizzy in our Help Center article.

Custom scrollbars

Styling the scrollbars in Sizzy caused some issues on macOS, so we made the custom scrollbars optional. If you want to show them only when scrolling, you can easily enable that setting in macOS.

However, if you want the custom scrollbars back, you can enable them in Settings -> Performance.

More class names for debugging elements

Did you know you can easily debug your elements in Sizzy by adding a "sizzy-[color]-[size]" classes to your HTML elements? You can enable that setting in the Debug Styles plugin.
