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.

First, for all of those complain about ads, it is only $10 a year to be ad free. Pretty good deal IMO. My only gripes as others have noted, is not being able to turn off the news feed and not being able to get rid of Yahoo from the main page. Other than that, I really like it. i have an old phone that works fine for most things but web browsing was always painfully slow. Now pages load much faster. Fix the issues noted above and it would get 5 stars.

It's really not bad, but it's not the best either. It tries to limit your browsing time so you can pay for their subscription service, but I could watch another ad and keep using the app, making this subscription limiter more deceiving than either what its function was, or the fact that you could just watch another ad. In short: definitely not elderly proof. However, it thrives in ad blocking and speed over most phone browsers. I can't say for other browsers because I can't buy more devices now.
