Lightning Browser +


Experience the internet with the speed and simplicity of Lightning Plus, a web browser built to rival the giants. Browse fast on your Android phone or tablet, and see through a portal to infinite information.

● Design - Lightning's interface was carefully crafted so you can browse as efficiently as possible without sacrificing those features that mean the most to you. Tabs and Bookmarks are all tucked neatly away in side drawers, only a swipe away, allowing maximum screen viewing with minimal interference from the browser's chrome.

● Speed - By utilizing the WebKit rendering engine that comes built into your Android device, we can ensure a swift, lightweight experience that won't disappoint.

● Privacy - Use Incognito Mode to browse without leaving a footprint, download Orbot and turn on proxy support to mask your identify and location, use StartPage or DuckDuckGo for your search engine, or disable settings that you think leave you at risk. Whatever your concern, Lightning is here to help.

● Features - Full-screen, check. Adblock, check. Inverted Rendering, check. All the search engines you want, check. Search Suggestions, Bookmarks, History, User Agents, whatever you need, Lightning does it.

● Open-source - Just as Android open-source, so is Lightning. We believe that the best software is built when communities come together to engineer the best solution. Head over to the repository on GitHub to fork, contribute, or translate. Whoever you are, there's a place for you in open-source.

Fast browser (switched from Chrome) A fast performing browser with a nice UI. Only thing that's missing is support for phones that don't have stock browsers. Importing bookmarks didn't work due to this (Chrome beta from the play store). Also, maybe support for importing bookmarks saved in the format that Chrome for desktop exports them in. Ultimately syncing bookmarks back and forth to Chrome would be perfect, but I'm not sure Google supports that.

Fast and includes adblock I really love it. I have a couple of suggestions. Please 1) add a true full screen mode (hiding the bottom android bar), and 2) make web page background color customisable like in uc browser - it's vital for reading.
