About this app

Puffin Web Browser is free to download from the Google Play Store but requires a paid subscription for unlimited use. A free evaluation is available for users to try out before subscribing to the service. This free evaluation is ad-sponsored and limited to one hour of usage per day. Only during the free evaluation period ads will be served and quotas enforced.

🚀 Wicked Fast: With our cloud servers handling even the most resource-demanding web pages effortlessly, websites can load at incredible speeds.

🔒 Cloud Protection: All Internet traffic from the app to our servers are end-to-end encrypted, therefore making it safe to use public, non-secure WiFi.

🎥 Flash Support: We constantly provide improvements to our servers, and the ability to view Flash content through the cloud.

💰 Data Savings: Puffin uses a proprietary compression algorithm to transmit web data to your device, and can save up to 90% of your bandwidth on regular web browsing. (Please note that streaming Flash content or videos requires more bandwidth than the normal usage.)

Only two critiques. I was about to subscribe but it's missing one critical feature that I need. Most browsers have an 'x' next to the URL to stop a page from continuing to load. This browser only has the refresh button next to the URL at the top. Second, I think there should be more customization for the startup page when I first open the browser. I am unable to remove the 'speed dial yahoo' and the news interface. Other than that, best 'desktop view' mobile browser I have ever tried that works.

This app has gone down hill they basically beg for your money every day and if you don't give it to them they throw a fit and don't let you use the browser but there's ways around it if your smart enough. Also there's ads every half hour or so of use so they really don't need the money as if there updating the app anyway it's been exactly the same for over 2 years and had even gotten worse and now they have the audacity to ask for money. Edit you have went down to a 2.9 in overall reviews nice.

The subscription revenue is less than 5% of the total revenue, but the savings in data center capacity is 50%. It is not about making more money, it is about saving more money by getting rid of abusers so all other users are much happier. We know our place very well, do you? Edit: We indeed don't need the subscription revenue because it is tiny.

I miss this browser. I wish they would come back to it and really revamp it because it used to be such an amazing thing. They have the capacity to make excellent useful features and bring it back. Hopefully they do one day. It doesn't need just flash. The browser does work, but flash support is annoying and the app doesn't have that polished feel anymore.
