v1.5.1December 22, 2020

That's it. It's our last release for 2020 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ We wrapped up the year with a hackathon and a bug bash. The update is packed with small improvements and we couldn't resist to release some of our hacks. It's been great to rock this crazy year with all of you. We'll close the virtual Raycast HQ for a couple of days to recharge. See you all in 2021 ๐ŸŽ†

๐Ÿ”– Browser Bookmarks

We've added a new and frequently requested extension for searching your browser bookmarks. Search your bookmarks by name, domain, or tag, and open and copy links via the Action Panel. You can enable the extension in the preferences and choose your browser sourcesโ€“currently we support the default profile of Chrome and Safari including reading list items. Happy browsing!


๐Ÿ“ Floating Notes

During the hackathon, we built a simple notes extension that stays on top of all other windows. The notes are a great way to write down your daily to-dos, prepare a tweet or jot down a thought you want to pick up later. You can enable Floating Notes in Preferences โ†’ Extensions.

๐Ÿ’ก Pro tip: Use shortcuts to toggle the notes window for even quicker access.
