Lightning Browser +

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.

Downloading Images When I try and download pictures from websites or google images, they download in the wrong file type like html or something. They never download in jpg png gif etc.

Very fast, but.. Excellent app, just please add an icon showing that you're in incognito. It gets confusing when your app theme is dark and so are incognito tabs. Fix for 5 stars.

Suggestion. Can you add ixquick as a search engine? I'm having trouble adding it from a custom URL. It's the same company as startpage which you have, but it includes other search engines, not just Google.

Excellent little alternative to the big boys Tried all the browsers and went back and forth many times. When I first tried Lightning some time ago it was still very crude but it's come a long way. Plus version is worth the expense to me to always have the latest and of course ad blocking. Pull down to refresh would be nice to have and a confirmation popup when a bookmark is added.

Almost flawless Some websites, mine included, displays a gray background instead of white. I didn't set a bg color on my body and every other browser displays white but this one prefers the gray side. Sometimes major sites like Google and others will show as having a gray bg color as well. Please fix. Free version doesnt have this issue. Also, instead of 5 different font sizes, make an option to enter exact percentage because 3rd option is too small and 4th is a bit too big. 120% is ideal imho.
