Wonderful update. I uninstalled 1.0 (as recommended in their press), installed 1.1, and nothing works. I then rolled back to 1.0 and (guess what) it's a browser which won't parse webpages. Welcome back to the blank screen

I installed 1.0.1 without uninstalling 1.0. It worked only in "safemode" (without any extensions). So I uninstalled some extensions, then closed and started it again, it worked. Then I installed all extensions again. No problems now.
