After a slow rollout spanning nearly twelve months, the MetaMask team is proud to announce the full launch of our re-designed UI in version 6.0 and the removal of our legacy UI.
The new skin can do everything the previous UI could do, plus a whole lot more:
This updated MetaMask includes
- A full-tab view for smoother onboarding and more persistence for when you need to double check an address or grab something from your password manager
- The ability to send and manage any ERC20 from within MetaMask
- Redesigned home screen to surface helpful details about transaction status
- An advanced gas customization tab to visualize time vs. cost tradeoffs
- Automatic token detection, based on our community-managed token list.
- Support for signing messages and transactions using a trezor or ledger hardware wallet
- Translation to over X languages
- Prominent display of function names on the “confirm” screen, so users can understand what their transaction is doing behind the scenes
- Helpful details for complicated interactions like "approve" calls
- A secondary data tab to view transaction params or hex data
- Support for QR scanning a recipient address
- Supports for sending to ENS addresses
- Ability to remove imported accounts and custom RPC networks
- And, by popular demand, v6 also includes the ability to edit gas price & limit via text field right from the Send or Confirm screens. You can enable this feature in Settings.
As MetaMask is often the final line between a website and a user’s keys, we focused this redesign on clarifying the information a user sees & approves. The “send” and “confirm” screens are entirely re-designed, as well as the home screen & “activity log” that displays information about submitted transactions.
The new UI also provides a range of new functionality, from trading & managing ERC 20 tokens to hardware wallet support.
Removing the old UI from the codebase will allow our development team to improve test reliability performance.
