About this app

Atlas is a web browser that lets you take total control of your mobile web browsing experience:

* Use AdBlockPlus (EasyList) filters to remove web annoyances, advertising, and tracking. Filtering reduces data usage and dramatically improves performance and battery life when browsing.

* Use the “Control Panel” slide-out to control site behavior: quickly toggle between desktop and mobile views. Switch between "HI-FI" (full) and "LO-FI" (JavaScript-free) browsing experiences.

* Optional Plus add-on lets you save content filtering, experience, desktop/mobile settings and more on a per-website basis.

* Free, Ad-free, and Invasion-of-privacy-free: NextApp will make money only on the *optional* paid add-on. Atlas DOES NOT collect information on your browsing habits or attempt to direct you to partner sites.

* Material Design-based user interface.

By removing undesired content and letting you take complete control over your web experience, Atlas uses less data, lowering CPU usage and preserving battery life. Sites load more quickly as large amounts of often poorly-written and inefficient JavaScript code related to advertising and tracking can be discarded.

Additional features:

* Dual-view mode (with paid Atlas+ add-on) adds the ability to view two sites at once.
* Content-centric UI: No UI is visible when browsing, all available screen is used for displaying site content.

Privacy features:

* Sandboxed Private Browsing: Private browsing runs in a separate process without any access to your cookies. This prevents the cookie leakage into private sessions that is common among other third-party browsers under Android KitKat.
* Automatic search and suggestions from the location bar can be disabled (or only enabled when you preface a query with a slash (“/”).

Atlas follows NextApp's standard free/paid model: a well-featured and ad-free free version with an optional paid add-on that offers more capabilities. The paid "Plus" version adds:

* Support for more than four tabs open at a time.
* Dual-View mode to view two web sites at the same time.
* The ability to remember your preferences on a per-site basis, such that specific web sites are retrieved in desktop/mobile modes or with or without content filtering enabled.

For an Android device web browser that functions well on a phone the Atlas Web Browser is about as good as it gets. There are many levels of control over elements of web pages which allows you to turn the modern annoying popup riddled and advertisement packed web into a fast and efficient information source like it used to be in the golden age of the web. Quick access slide out controls allow aspects of the page rendering to be controlled at a tap. Changes in the rendering take effect immediately. You can display pages as only text, a light mode with images, and full page rendering. You can tap to switch between device styles. Most useful is the ability to control text zooming and the text zooming overrides css styles built into the page. This makes it much easier to read text on web pages when using a small screen such as on a mobile phone. When tested on the Google Pixel phone the Atlas Web Browser performed faster than any of the 12 other browsers we tested.

I keep coming back to this browser after getting frustrated with others. Strengths are the the easy drawers, splitscreen, site settings memory, URL edits, and its ability to capture disclaimer pages that need to be tended to. Dev disinterest can be a good thing if they're not finding ways to get you!

The best feature - one-click JavaScript disable and for the paid version, it can be disabled per site. To dev: plz update! I will pay! A few tweaks like full screen video and fast scrolling on long pages = perfection. I've tried all the others and Atlas still holds up well. Adblockers built in - easylist etc. Fot the person who can't figure out the tabs, SWIPE FROM THE LEFT. (Great place for tabs.) And slide the text zoom back down if the text is too large??
