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.

minimal, open source, actually CHROME OK this is labelled as BETA so I gave it three stars, but it needs to be improved (otoh watch out for ad-enhanced clones!) ... changelog not updated with every update ... recent CHROME update breaks this browser too... that reveals that this is actually CHROME ... following old issues may have been resolved by now: orbot mode is not perfect, it tells servers it's lightning browser, this should be fixed or the feature removed. you need to set user agent, or it tells the server a whole lot more ... unfortunately can't set that to empty, but a good value may be what orweb uses: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:10.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0 ... also there appears to be no way to clear security certificates, so if you accidentally click 'yes' to proceed to an untrusted site, looks like you have to clear ALL the app data in android application manager! ... and oh! man, for night mode, can you make it apply to just text, have images display in their normal mode? pls! kthxbai

Almost perfect! I switched from the Chrome botnet and I must say--wow. Really nice. I have a couple recommendations. It would be nice if you could make an AMOLED black theme, and add a user agent switch to the quick menu to load desktop view on sites. Also, search suggestions don't work on the little homepage search bar. Other than that, it's excellent!
