I've been using this for a while and it's my go-to browser choice. Firefox just lacks a little too much for mobile use Two gripes: I've disabled "ask to sign into sites with google" but it doesn't recognize it. I'm repeatedly prodded to log into sites with my gmail account. Second, it would be great if we could permanently disable the overlay notification that covers the screen when downloading images. I realize this is chromium based so that may be the limiting factor but if possible, please!

Suddenly the browser isn't allowing me to go to non-https sites. I have all security turned off, and still no luck. This has to get fixed pronto or I'll abandon what is otherwise a nice browser. I'm trying to get away from Google stuff, but Chrome gives me the choice to proceed to non-https sites or not, and more and more sites that I trust (library, e.g.) have for whatever reasons are abandoning the secure url. Quickly, folks.

Without a doubt, currently the best browser available on Android. Between its focus on privacy, customization, and wide-ranging extension support, Kiwi Browser is peerless. However, where it needs improvement is with customer support and fixing known issues/problems. Scrolling through the reviews you will notice several mentioned problems that have gone unresolved for a year or more. I've had the same experience. Unfortunately, customer service does not seem to be a top priority at the moment.
