Micro.blog for macOS version 1.9

Micro.blog has been updated on the Mac. Here are the changes:

  • Added new Open option when clicking a post to open it in your web browser. Useful for copying the link or viewing the post on the author’s blog.
  • Added icons for Reply, Favorite, and Conversation.
  • Fixed error reporting when posting fails and during timeline loading.
  • Fixed photo compression to be more consistent across Micro.blog platform.

I tried many different UIs for this before settling on “Open”, including a share menu to match iOS. Nothing felt right. By adding icons for all the options, I could make “Open” use the default web browser’s icon, which helps convey what will happen. (It uses stylized versions of Safari, Chrome, or Firefox icons.)

Choose “Check for Updates” or grab the latest version from the download page.
