Engines Up!

v6 comes with a Chromium engine upgrade, to M56. This upgrade includes not only rendering engine improvements but also support for CSS Grid, our most requested feature. For those of you who don’t already know, the Samsung Internet team actively contributes to Chromium features, along with Web standards, meaning that we were able to backport CSS Grid support from M57. So, without further ado…

CSS Grid Support is here!

The CSS layout system we’ve all been waiting for: Grid gives developers the ability to create 2 dimensional layouts allowing control over columns and rows of elements. A much more powerful layout tool than previously offered by CSS. If you’d like to learn more about CSS Grid, here is a list of resources and a fun game.
