Review from A Google User
Awesome Improvements, great browser. This has improved leaps and bounds since the last time I used it. It's now buttery smooth and fast, syncs with desktop version and no glitches so far. Galaxy Note 2 running CyanogenMod 10.1.
Great update. Uninstalled firefox a few months ago and came back satisfied! Smoother transitions and clean look. However, I prefer an uncluttered homepage without pocket's links and whatnot. Don't get me wrong, I love Pocket and their service is commendable. It just makes the home page a little bit unruly. Best update to date, nevertheless. Hopefully a night mode option soon for non-incognito sessions?
The new version is mainly awesome; much faster, not options for customisation but unfortunately it's caused my notification bar on my phone (HTC m8s) to go white, the same colour as the text as a result I can't see the time the battery %age, nothing. Please investigate because otherwise I'm very happy with the new version. P.S. some have complained about there being no full screen mode. Well there is on the new version, if it's not on for you find it in settings.
Please make the UI simple and beautiful. We do not need cluttered home page like chrome. No need for showing newsfeed in browser's home page. It seems you have ignored the users. Make a clean interface. Put a simple search/url bar in the middle. And also add a grey hue. All white is blinding. If you do something like I mentioned, I and many others will come back. Don't go chasing chrome. Be innovative. Make it light and simlple. Till then just One Star.
Im telling all my friends to switch over for the following reasons. -Sync, shares settings and history crossplatform. -Most if not all addons work on all platforms, ad blockers widgets what have you. -The android icon near the address bar will take you from the browser to the same page with relevant app. Feels like home the switch between pc and android is seamless!
Everything you never asked for and more. Clean look? I'd call it raw. New home page? Keep your pocket, I don't need spammed with this. Funny how new people come in with "fresh" ideas and scrap the years worth of evolution. My new quote is "Evolution shouldn't bring us to all fours".
Unlike other browsers, this one has a lot of useful settings to navigate the web cleanly and privately. Pages load faster and they don't spy on you as well as they do with other browers. If ONLY I could replace my device's current browser with this one! Update: With the latest update as of 11/16/17 the browser has slowed down A LOT.
