    How to activate nightmode

    Please rename this fork so it won't show as update for people having your repo active.
    Also why did you fork in the first place? Pull request would be a much much nicer way.

    Actually, I don't know which and where to change files so that this version does not conflict with your version. I'll just put a pull request

    Rename the package in the rpmspec file simply.

    Thanks. I'll do that tomorrow

    Edit: Changing name just in the spec file is throwing errors at compile time about missing files. I'll just leave this as is and will only put pull request in future.

    Actually the function of swipe is to switch tabs (like android chrome browser) and not navigation. Maybe I''ll add an option to select the functionality of swipe

    It'll be a very good option for sure!

    If the search bar is swipable there is no point in maintaining the back arrow. Could you remove it, please?

    I have updated its version. Are you able to update now?
    Actually I myself can't see the update option with this version also and I'm not good with versioning or repositories. Can someone help me out here? Thank you

    PS: You can always remove previous and install this version. That'll work
