About this app

Kiwi Browser is made to browse the internet, read news, watch videos and listen to music, without annoyances.

Kiwi is based on Chromium and WebKit, the engine that powers the most popular browser in the world so you won't lose your habits.

We hope you'll love Kiwi as much as we do.

+ VERY snappy! Faster switching tabs, opening pages, etc. than Chrome!! The customizability + Extensions puts back what Chrome is missing. - Lacks Firefox's ability to clear EVERYTHING (cookies, tabs, data) upon each exit, so you must manually clear data (at least it's in the menu). Impossible to select partial link text by sweeping over the text. Would like on-screen page up/down buttons for ease of use.

For the love of God, just let us disable pull to refresh. This has been a requested feature on your GitHub for YEARS. It causes issues every single time I use the app. There is no excuse to not have fixed this by now. Fullscreen alignment is also completely broken, requiring every video to be fullscreened 4-5 times in order to get the video in alignment with the screen. These are really basic issues that can be easily fixed, but have been ignored for several years.

Honestly, I don't know why the ratings are so low? Maybe I just don't use it enough or something, but it doesn't have any particular egregious issues on my end. To be fair, I've had this for maybe a year or so and I use it as more a companion browser than anything (so I don't open it TOO too often), but I haven't experienced crashes, even with extensions and userscripts/Tampermonkey going, or intrusive ads or whatnot. Maybe it depends on usage? I have nothing but love to give either way. :]
