The link previews are a great feature.

I like the updates, like the tabs and the floating link at the bottom. What would be the feasibility of the following features? * Sharing the link directly rather than an image or the text * Allowing copying of any links when long pressing (Open, Open in new tab, Copy link) * Choosing whether to display the floating link or go straight to the next link * Choosing whether to open a link in a new tab by default * Making the tab overview function similarly to the android recent apps thing, including swipe to close and the ability to preview content * Allowing long presses on the floating link, to open in a new tab at least. Right now, if we decide a new tab is worth it, we have to close the floating link and long press the regular one instead.
