- Reworked iGetter Extension for Chrome/Chromium using the build-in extension API to send all downloads to iGetter. This method replaces the functionality implemented previously by the iGetter Plugin (NPAPI), since NPAPI support was removed from Chrome as of version 45. The above operation can be temporarily disabled with the new context menu command "Disable integration" added by iGetter Extension for Chrome.
- Improved installation of iGetter Extension for Safari 9.0+, due to changed requirements for updating local extensions in Safari 9. Now iGetter will also need to launch Safari for extension updates, in addition to initial extension installation required since Safari 8.

- Implemented a workaround for the issue introduced in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, which in certain circumstances won't update properly the logical end of file, that could lead to improperly truncated files after a system restart. In iGetter this could manifest in an error that local file download has different size from the remote file.
- Reworded the browser integration options in both iGetter Preferences -> Integration and Installation dialogs, to better reflect the new browser integration functionality. The new option "Install iGetter Browser Extension (add contextual menus, watch for URL clicks)" replaces the previously worded "Add contextual menu support for Internet Browsers".
