Atlas Web Browser

Atlas Web Browser


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.

Recent changes:
When content filtering is enabled, page requests are delayed until filtering is available.
Improved suggestion UI, showing URLs below history/bookmark items. Removed duplicate entries.
The "Start Private Browsing" option now is shown as "Open Private Browser" when a private browser is active in the background.

Good job I like this app but some links made as buttons won't work.

Has great potential, but has development stopped? A different approach which is very promising, and could be superb, but has development stopped when it's barely out of beta? Content Filtering, JavaScript control and other settings are excellent - I love the ad blocking, and the ability to change the default settings on the fly. Bookmarks in folders that can be moved and sorted. Dual View split screen sometimes very useful. The "Privacy and User Data" tool does not clear cookies at first try, usually requiring several attempts before working. Needs some features: Essential:▪Configurable option to auto-delete stored data on EXIT (cookies,history etc). Highly Desirable: ▪Option to auto-delete Cookies after closing TAB. ▪ Save page as PDF. ▪ Export Bookmarks (to HTML). 7" tablet, Android 4.2.2 using Atlas+

Not ready for prime time Lo-fi mode is brilliant for sites that choke other mobile browsers. But I think they jumped the gun in releasing this as a finished app; there are too many small problems and some big ones like some sites not being rendered properly, mailto links not working, and frequent crashes. And I really dislike the invisible URL/search field. It's too bad that development already seems to have been abandoned.
