I've used this app for a long time and this browser used to be my favorite. However the grouped tab update has made it unusable. I constantly lose track of the tabs I have open, and some webpage interface elements get blocked by the group tab bar on the bottom which you can't make go away. This browser has also long suffered from the lack of ability to transfer bookmarks, even between Ecosia browsers on different devices. I've tried for months but will probably switch to Firefox now.

i used to love ecosia and recommend it to everyone but lately it's been a little frustrating. like many others i wish there was an option to turn off the grid view for tabs, and additionally i cannot stand the automatic tab grouping. i love the option of ad blocking....except it doesn't work. i still get ads all the time where there shouldn't be. i feel like ecosia used to be perfect or damn near it, but now it's been changed too much and for the worse.

I'm incredibly disappointed the this browser had now switched to the grid view for tabs. It's hard to use for me and the lack of it is one reason I was using this app in the first place. I hope that you all make it an optional feature because I will mostly likely have to find a new browser if it stays. Edit: I did switch because I couldn't stand the thumbnail layout anymore and it didn't seem to be changing. I'm severely disappointed.
