I’m aware. They started working on this after reading my critique. However, the change is still in experimental/developer preview status. Their implementation is buggy and their published details don’t match how the feature work. I’ve been hoping Samsung would do something more with this. It seems like they stopped working on it last year.
It seems this issue is still a thing but now they have moved the "feature" to a "labs" setting in settings to work like it should work in the first place.. So to get it to work like all the other browsers you need to turn on a labs feature... It is ridiculous
