Review from A Google User
getting better update: speed seems to have improved massively with this update Every other android browser i have tried outperforms this by a country mile, it has very nice ui but poor poor performance. Also i realise it is probably for the greater good to stop flash support, but nothing on android is ready for the switch yet, so disappointing lack of flash.
Lost functions for clutter Bookmarks used to be one button click away. Now 2 clicks away (like 2 years ago) and my history of saved bookmarks clutters the first page. Pointless. I prefer a way to delete old history on exit. Surprised it had a few thousand of them on this new LG from old phone.
New Update SUCKS! Why did you take away showing "Bookmarks" on the new page on my tablet? This is STUPID! I should NOT have to hunt for my bookmarks?? Before it was right there on the page, now you show some stupid articles? I didn't ask for articles. This should be a choice for the consumer! GOOGLE STOP CHANGING WHAT'S NOT BROKE!!! ARGH!😡
Current Update is just....meh. Preferred my bookmarks star button on the start page, but it has gotten a bit faster but not much. Also needs option to remove articles and etc. from the start page, not everyone wants to see news feeds. Why change things for needless junk some people don't want.
Guess it's time to find a new browser With the bookmarks link buried, the print option removed, and crappy suggested articles that I don't want to read, and no way to disable any of the changes, it looks like it's time to find a new browser. Good job Google on forcing yet another user off your software.
Slower than the default browser I'm sorry, I've given this browser more than enough chances. I do like when it works properly, but that seems less and less likely with each update. I've compared it to the default browser on my phone and it completely outperforms Chrome consistently. Chrome takes very long to load pages, it lags to the point when you scroll it selects texts and it suddenly freezes the whole device. It also seems to perform worse with other apps such as Google running.
Broken by stupidity I've disabled auto updates after the last update. Bookmarks have disappeared from the home screen. I am so frigging sick of idiotic software developers who can't even see from a user perspective. I hope they rot in hell. If anyone from Google ever reads this: You should be ashamed of yourself. You are so far up yourself and so detached you have no ability to relate what you are working on to yourself as a user. Do you fools use another browser when personally browsing? Safari on an iPhone I suspect.
