WebCatalog 31.0.0

Focus on WebCatalog Engine

To avoid confusing users and also to prepare for upcoming major updates, we’ve decided to focus our effort on improving WebCatalog Engine, our Electron-based app engine and move the feature to create Chromium-based, Firefox-based and WebKit-based apps to a new free product called Chromeless app.

With this change, WebCatalog will no longer let you create apps powered by alternative (non-Electron/non-WebCatalog-Engine) browser engines, which includes:

  • Brave
  • Chromium
  • Cốc Cốc
  • Google Chrome
  • Google Chrome Canary
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Opera
  • Vivaldi
  • WebKit
  • Yandex Browser

If you’ve created apps using the mentioned engines, the apps will continue to work indefinitely but won’t receive further improvements. If you’d like to create new ones, please use the new Chromeless app.
