Great Alternative Browser Very fast browser and the flash works great. Only problem is I can't use at work (elementary school) on the wifi and Chengdu Research Base of Panda Breeding website in China. They are blocked. I also use Photon and Dolphin and I'm able to open them with problems. Can't use as an default browser, but can use for webcam viewing .
Poor privacy, intrusive reloading Features only tracking search engines. No DuckDuckGo or similar search. Nothing to limit intrusive ads. Weak protection from tracking by Facebook and the like. Then, without notice, keeps reloading the pages you're in - which were already downloaded, who cares about the connection then - irritatingly interrupting or losing altogether your reading, listening, or watching experience. PLEASE STOP SENSELESS RELOADING. Is it so hard to let users decide if it's convenient for them to reload everything?
Very fast browser, but the sync feature with Chrome has been removed. Also, downloading any files to local storage on Android 6 won't work. Also, I cannot upload any video to Facebook website.
Not Recommended Is fast BUT its inability to block ads renders browsing with this app useless and annoying. In addition, phone gets really warm and cause battery drain.
Impressive, lovely browser I love this browser, especially the cooool track-pad and included "add-ons" for Pocket, etc. Also the Flash-on-demand setting. I tried free version then paid. Difference is no banner ads in paid version. I am grateful for the option to get rid of the banner and support the Puffin servers by this alternate. My concern is privacy and whether there is data collection. It works via similar principle as Amazon's Silk and Amazon likely collects user data -- so it is a legit concern.
The number of times this browser refreshes, or reloads, drives me crazy. I love that it enables me to access Flash content but I could delete it in frustration at a moment's notice. I must be a sucker for punishment. This browser is the only way I can access a specific Facebook game. 😡😦😣😩😶
