Good and well used features removed...
Quite annoyed with the newest update. They removed the 'paper plane' quick send to device button, removed multiple add-ons including the reader button feature. I'm just not thrilled with this new update. There are certainly upgrades under the surface, but some of those former well made functions have been blindsided or replaced with something that is just not as good. Unpleased with the result and the loss of that usability, for myself.

Send to Device moved to the Sharing menu (I don't know what the icon is called, but I'm sure you know which one I mean).
Which add-on was the Reader button? If you look at your menu, does it show in the disabled section?
The reader add-on that would turn any page into just readable text minus the images and ads, had features which made it easier for reading.
The share to browser function, it used to be sharing to browser from ANY APP was easy as pressing the in-app share icon, sharing to Mozilla Firefox and then prompted with the option to desktop or phone. Now one must share to phone, then share to browser.
I'm not sorry, but that adds at least two more steps in what was already a flawless process.
It's made it way more frustrating particularly when applying for jobs in job search apps like indeed, to have to wait for in-app browsers to load and then share to Firefox android, then wait for that to load and only then share to desktop.
I'm frustrated. I can appreciate the surface and subsurface level improvements but all but one, evidently the tab swipe feature is the only one worthwhile in the update, losing the range of and particularly these simple add-ons, and the share button, has just made it cumbersome to use since the update. I don't appreciate the "curated" add-ons. It's not on!
