In this version we wanted to use Google thumbnails API. The advantage of using the Google API is that we get amazing thumbnails for full URLs, which is really cool. The only downside is that the API won't work for Bing or Yahoo.

Build 33


This is a critical update which improves Glims loading.

Our goal with this build is to handle unexpected events during load.
That way, after Apple releases its new operating system, we will be able to take the necessary time to research without having the need to rush and compromise on quality.

Please continue to report any issues you may have.

Build 33:
  • Improved loader
  • Should load on newer version of Safari
  • Secondary loader for system without dyld support

Build 32

While we were busy coding, Google changed their suggestion API. As usual, we dropped everything we were doing and rolled out a build ASAP.


Also, for users that only use Glims for the search engines tweaks, we added a 'light' option to the installer. Since we noticed that a number of our daily downloads come from IXquick, Duckduckgo and blekko, we added them to the search engines list.
