Canopy, a popular jailbreak tweak that brings a bunch of new features and functionality to the stock Safari app has been updated for iOS 8.

The tweak aims to enhance your browsing experience on Safari by adding the necessary features that should have been shipped with the stock app. Did you ever want a quick paste and go option in Safari or a way to close all tabs at once? All these functionality are bundled with Canopy.

The tweak provides the following features:

  • ‘Paste’ and ‘Paste & Go’ options in the address bar
  • Insert search and address suggestion into their respective text fields without searching (like in Chrome)
  • Prevent the navigation bar from hiding when scrolling through a page
  • Long press on Bookmark, History or Reading List items to copy the address or share them with your friends
  • Translate a page to another language via the action menu
  • Open a webpage in Chrome via the action menu
  • Close all open pages at once or add them all to the Reading or Bookmarks list
  • Long press on the tab button to open a new tab
  • Long press on the bookmarks button to add the currently open page to the Bookmarks or Reading list
  • Mark items in the Reading list as read or unread
  • And many more

Once you install Canopy for iOS 8, all the features will be enabled by default but if you feel like configuring the tweak, you can do so from its preferences pane in the Settings app.

Canopy is a solid tweak that supercharges the stock Safari app on your iOS 8 device. Even if you’ll use a few of its features, the tweak is still worth its price tag.

Canopy for iOS 8 can be purchased from the BigBoss repository for $1.99 and it is compatible with iPad as well.
