I don't know what it is about me and this app, but we can never see eye to eye. These last 2 updates have pretty much killed my ability to search for anything in the URL box and if I try to change search engines it crashes. Nice work guys, I was finally starting to use it more again.
FULL SCREEN VIEW • Are you ever going to have FULL SCREEN available without the notification bar on top for android devices? Looks like only Samsung Browser gets it right. The only reason I'm not chrome is because of not being able toselect full screen.
In my opinion, I like Chrome better than Firefox, it just seems to work better on both my Laptop and mobile device. And certainly a lot better than the default browser in some situations. I'm sure they will keep on improving it! If any of you are interested, Google my username and check out my art. 😁
This is for the most current update: it is absolutely horrible to have the address bar sit directly on top of the keyboard. The placement of the address bar at the bottom of the screen is preventing me from actually finding what I need. It is more than a mild change, it is an adjustment that makes it difficult to read webpages and to know what site youre on. I miss my home page and I am 100% not interested in the news feed. I already do not use the news feature on my Samsung galaxy 6+ edge. Having to look at something I did not opt to see and rather purposefully avoided is beyond frustrating. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK OR GIVE US THE CHOICE
Overall the app is good, works as well as the desktop version *EXCEPT* the auto-refresh nonsense with the tabs. You go from one tab to another, then go back to your initial tab (even if you were only gone from it for a few seconds) and it auto-refreshes. It is very very VERY annoying - no way to shut it off, or change the reset time. They *really* need to do something about it. The auto refresh has made me lose progress, lose my place, have to try to delete something more than once. Honestly, it causes more problems and work, than it does help. PLEASE, I beg the devs ... fix this annoyance!! Only other issue I have is it is heavy on RAM usage. On a tablet, that can be a big problem.
Google changing things for the sake of changing things. UI is everything and quite a few people, myself included, avoided much faster browsers because the address bar was at the bottom. Do. Not. Want. Yes you can change the flag but the average user doesn't know this. Make the location an option in settings.
