This also mean that they have a lot more animations than before, and we are planning to let you customize these animations too. Furtheremore the performance has been improved and it will run stable on even more web sites. With the new "Throw Element" feature you can let shimejis pick up elements from the web page and throw them away. The elements will reset automatically after a few seconds, so you can keep on working. In a few cases shimejis start interacting with elements on their own, could you discover on which sites this happen? Please Enjoy ^^
