Brief 2.5 is the WebExtensions release series. Tagging and full-text search are still missing, but everything else should work. If something does not, please file bug reports or comment on existing ones.
Brief 2.5 can reuse data saved by Brief 2.4, but not by earlier versions. OPML export/import can be used otherwise.
