Hope this is the right place for this. I offer the usual applies if I miss something from another post.
It is about the news portion of the browser.
So on the news part of the beta ---
I'm one of those who are sensitive to bandwidth: I do a lot of roaming and this can be expensive in foreign parts if one is not careful. I try not to use my personal bandwidth on phone or tablet and always use a free WiFi cafe for my daily dose of downloaded digital newspapers.
So my preference is to download things just the one time and then have an offline copy to come back to during the day. Otherwise, for me, the news feed would always be off except at home with my tame WiFi.
So from that perspective I'd like to be able to download news items for offline reading and disable any background activity from the news function. Naturally that would need a means to delete the download.
Also I note that the same control in settings turns off both news and notifications. Maybe this is a terminology thing about the meaning of notifications, but it would be good if those two commands could face separate controls.
