NOT GOOD AS BEFORE!!!.. It's Now Crazy To See A Browser I Love So Much No Longer Appear In My Background Multi-Tasks LineUp..And For That Reason,I Am Un_Installing It Immediately..I Can't Go Back To Exactly The Same Page I Browsed Out To Be On.It Will Have To Take Me Back To HomePage To Start Afresh.Give Us Back The Old Browser and I Would Give A Five Star...
Done with this Used to be the best but not anymore. Tired of the freezing and force closes. If these arent fixed, im deleting it permanently. Update: And now full screen ads are popping up as soon as you open the app and every time you open a new tab. Extremely annoying. No longer have the patience for this app. What was once my absolute favorite web browser will now be deleted, maybe permanently.
Used to be decent Latest update has ruined what I used to consider the best browser. I could handle ads when I closed the app out, but now you get an ad when you first open up the app. This causes major slowdowns just to get into the browser. Forget opening the browser to look something up quick. Also now the app doesn't show up when I hit the recents button. Which makes it tough to jump back and forth between apps.
Ads causing issues Now it doesnt show up in the recent apps display, to open it I have to click the app again, even when its running with windows open. And now every new tab launches an ad page. This is only a day or two old issue, but it's making it useless if not fixed, Firefox seems to be my new default, hope this gets fixed, i have been using this for years and it was always great.
This is my favorite Android browser. I would use Chrome, but it doesn't have tabs on the top like my desktop browser does. I need my tabs, and so boat browser is my daily driver. It's also a very stable browser. Gestures is one of the most useful functions as well. I am so used to gestures to get to my bookmarked pages that clicking an icon to get to bookmarks, like on my PC, feels inefficient. Overall great browser, IMHO the best for Android.
Update Once I updated to Marshmellow, stability was increased. However a couple of idiosyncrasies are driving me nuts. Cut and paste has gotten next to impossible and opening a link in the background keeps opening the wrong links. I just opened 10 links in the background and none of them were correct. Simply obnoxious. Ah and I also had to force it to show up in recents via another app.
