New shopping cart
Blisk starts supporting the new shopping cart with an improved user experience and new features.
As a result, it should become easier and more convenient for users to purchase Premium licenses.
Licenses for a single user now do not require a full address. Customers are now able to define
company details from the section Billing details > Company tab.
Transparent background of screenshots
In version 15, we implemented one of the most requested features by our users - support for
screenshots with a transparent background. Starting with this version, you can again use
screenshots with transparent background created in Blisk for mockups and demos.
Quick switching of devices
Blisk finally starts supporting quick switching of devices on all platforms (Windows,
macOS, Linux). Now users can change the device in two clicks.
To quickly change the devices in the existing device set:

Devtools docking in Browsing mode
Since version 15, the users are able to dock the Devtools to bottom, left, right, and undock the
Devtools to a separate window while working in Browsing mode. Devtools docking in Developer mode
was implemented in version 188.8.131.52.
Auto-refreshing the current tab
Update Blisk to the latest version in case you need use Auto-refresh for the current tab only.
This feature is now available in Blisk v.15+ in Advanced settings of Auto-refresh for any
domain. By default, Blisk automatically refreshes all tabs with Auto-refresh enabled.
The latest version contains multiple bug fixes for the known issues:
When hovering over links, chrome does not display the popup in the bottom left (right)
corner with the url.
Issues with <input type="file" />. The users were unable to initiate the file input
window on its second launch or if it was previously closed.
- Issues with extension pinning. The users were unable to pin the extension for a quick access.
- Other minor issues.
