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.

Just one little thing The new look and new(thankfully few) features are great. Just one thing, holding the back button used to close the app and all tabs and now it pulls up a menu to close. If I wanted to close just a single tab I would swipe right and close it. I hold the back button intentionally to close the app. Just seems a little redundant to have that dialog pop up.

Lives up to its name As fast as you can get and ad blocker actually works unlike chrome which seems to encourage ads. Deserves millions of downloads, keep it light and fast, EDIT another great update. Couldn't address bar just auto go up out of way after loading? and keep the short swipe to bring down?.

Gorgeous, speedy. While I do miss being able to sync my Chrome bookmarks, this browser is insanely fast and lightweight. I don't think I'll be going back to Chrome anytime soon!

Almost perfect Popup ads come through even when ad blocking is turned on and there's a force closure on import bookmarks
