- Improve the browser’s responsiveness when the system is low on memory
- Fix an issue that could prevent webpages from responding after using a pinch to zoom gesture
- Fix an issue that could affect websites using forms to authenticate users
- Disable versions of Adobe Flash Player that do not include the latest security updates and provide the option to get the current version from Adobe’s website.
