It's great I like chrome but the current crop of mobile advertisements makes it unbearable. This is the best alternative I've found in the app store. It just needs some more features to get five stars, like opening links in background tabs and syncing bookmarks to Dropbox or better yet a service like pinboard.
Often just opens a blank page when clicking on a link in another app So, I *really* want to love this app. It has the right balance of features, simplicity and looks. Ad blocking is great. However, when the app opens after clicking a link in another app, Lightning just shows its homepage. You have to go back to Twitter, or Facebook or whatever app you clicked the link in, click the link again, and then Lightning opens up again, this time showing the correct web page. With this bug fixed (and the ability to have new tabs open in the background) Lightning would be perfect.
Pretty good! Been looking for a decent adblock browser. I think this might be it! Really like the clean interface. Really cool that you can turn off status bar. Took me a few minutes to get used to but then realized quickly that I really like the slide out panels for tabs, navigation, and bookmarks. Seems fast and smooth thus far. Settings cover everything needed. One slight complaint is text wrap could be better. See Opera for zoom and text wrap done right. Btw, someone ripped off ur hard work. See Deebrowser...
Annoying issue with the update Whenever you're on a web page and you tap on the address bar to type in a new URL, it highlights everything as if it's ready to be replaced with what you're going to type in, but once you start typing it doesn't overwrite the current URL. This happens way too often since the update
Bad update This update made me really upset. Many things are broken or won't work like they always did. For example: if I open a link from another app/shortcut on my launcher, it won't open and the browser will show the home page instead. Another bad thing imho is the impossibility to choose, when I open a link in a new tab, to open it on background. On old version this was possible and it would be nice if there's an option to bring it back like I described in this new one.
Good, but... The tab management is atrocious. There's no background tab option, and whenever you open a new tab, the list of your open tabs closes and you are sucked into the new tab you just opened. This all needs to be reworked. I need background tabs. And I need to manage my tabs (close AND open), without being dragged out of the menu. Also, inverted rendering still needs a bit of work. Otherwise, a fast, clean browser.
