The extension visually appears and functions very similar to what you’re used, however, it’s got a hugely updated encryption engine underneath.
We’ve been refactoring and improving the Openpgp.js project significantly over the past year. In this version of Mymail-Crypt, I’m incorporating these changes for a better experience.
- Support for more OpenPGP clients keys — great news if you’ve had trouble with other peoples keys in the past.
- Better signature verification. There is now a “Verify Signature” button for messages that are signed but not encrypted. If a message is both encrypted and signed, Mymail-Crypt will attempt to verify the signature when you use the “Decrypt” button.
Really, there are a ton of improvements in the encryption library, but most of them are transparent. Now that this has been shipped, there are a number of other visual items and cleanup I’m hoping to turn my attention to.
Let me know if you have trouble migrating, or using the new extension!
