Screen magnifier

The feature is self-explanatory, you can use the left Alt + mouse wheel key combination to zoom in on any part of the desktop.

New default web browser

Use Google Chrome to replace the original Firefox, and the built-in Virus Total virus scanner in the Chrome browser (disabled by default).

When enabled, Chrome will ask you if you want to scan files before opening them.

New GRUB menu:

Memtest no longer appears in the Grub menu. With so many PEs and bootable tech tools out there these days, it seems like an unnecessary extra.

LibreOffice

Linux Lite will now provide the latest stable release with each release , no more unstable releases (shown below).

System Monitoring Center:

Gone are the original Task Manager and Process Viewer, replaced by a more feature-rich System Monitoring Center tool.

Through System Monitoring Center, users can obtain information about CPU, RAM, disk, network and GPU. Also get performance, processes, startup, services, and system tools and information in one easy-to-use, highly configurable application.
