A good browser, but the UI is clumsy. It takes three (3) taps to get to the bookmarks; most other browsers need just one. Tapping on the URL gives you a useless list of some URLs that you used; it could have been used for the bookmarks or favorites. And the Reader mode - ugh. Seem to be minor things, but it makes me use another browser most of the time, as it is quicker and easier to use

Ad blocker works amazingly, such a relief from the constant YouTube ads. I wish they had a few fun features like opera gx though. But I only use it for the use of YouTube, so it's not really a must have. I must say, the one downside is the 10 second loop buffer if I go higher than 1080p. Which isn't a good thing if I wanted to watch a higher quality video to get a better experience. But overall, 4 stars.

Crashes when you tap the address bar. This review would probably be 5 stars otherwise. Much better alternative to chrome. Blocks ads, doesn't ask you to log in to Google every time you search in incognito, and reddit doesn't recognize it so it doesn't give you the obnoxious popup asking to switch to the app every time you use it. But being able to tap the address bar is a core function, so I have to take off a couple stars for the time being until it is fixed. It's been doing this for a while
