Satin Web is now Octua

Satin Web is now Octua 9/19/2019   A few days ago, I wrote a post about the future of Satin Web. After careful consideration, I have made a major decision about the future of Satin Web. I’m renaming it to Octua. Why Octua? It sounds cool! It doesn’t have any special meaning really, it’s just a fun name! I would also like to clarify that Octua is still the same program as Satin Web.

What happened to Satin Web?

What happened to Satin Web? 9/12/2019   There was a time when Satin Web was Tectra’s main focus. However, nowadays, it’s nowhere to be seen. What happened? The origins of Satin Web date back to a year and a half ago. It was the first major Tectra program to be released. Satin Web got many updates. Over the course of a year, it switched from being based on Internet Explorer to Chromium. It got tabbed browsing. It even received themes. Satin Web was growing up at a rapid pace. It seemed like that it would continue to improve and get updates. However, as we all very well know, this wasn't the case. Updates for Satin Web slowed down to a stagnant pace. It got buried by newer, more exciting software. Satin Web went as quickly as it came. Why did this happen? It mainly boils down to priorities. The Tectra team started focusing on other things, which caused Satin Web to be mostly forgotten. What's next? At this point, you are probably thinking that Satin Web is a thing of the past. Ho
