An Android web browser
TRUST: Right permissions with no spying.
SPEED: No bloat with focus on efficiency.
FEATURES: Crash restore, undo closed tabs, infinite tabs & more.
FREE: As in no cost. Not for profit & not ad-supported but the sites you visit may be.

I wanted a trustworthy browser with features I need yet using as few resources as possible. I hope you enjoy it.

• Close current tab by tapping its tab bar button.
• The "desktop" button allows you to view full, rather than mobile, versions of sites.
• Swipe right --> to show bookmarks/history. Long press bookmarks/history to edit.
• One finger zoom: Double-tap and hold, then swipe left/right to zoom.
• Undo close tab: Long press new tab "+" button.
• Access tab history: long press current tab button.
• Choose a search engine for URL bar search: Long press "go" arrow.
• Routinely use the "exit" button & close unused tabs to minimize crashes and free memory.

CANNOT SEE THE BROWSER MENUS?
If your device has no menu button, you may be able to long press the device app switch button. Paid Pro version provides more ways to view menus. There is also an another build of the free version which does not require a menu button: http://nakedbrowser.com/android/nakedbrowserNDM.apk

Not concerned with privacy? Spying wastes resources (battery, bandwidth, CPU) and slows your device.

DATA
Naked Browser does not use data to spy, monitor, or even show ads. All data transfer is solely as a result of your requests & retrievals. Because Naked Browser is designed for efficiency, you may use more data simply because you can browse sites faster.

SECURITY
Naked Browser uses the Android WebView (WebKit) that's on your device--the same one used by the stock Browser. All data requests & retrievals, all cookies, all passwords, etc. are handled by the WebView and Naked Browser does not interfere with the default behavior.

BEWARE PHISHING
Naked Browser does not and may never employ a phishing filter, which can warn you if you have visited a site suspected of hosting malware. This does not mean that Naked Browser is insecure, but that--like with any web browser--you should be careful what sites you visit.

PERMISSIONS
• Internet: ONLY for your web page requests & retrievals. Absolutely no monitoring or snooping, & ad-less too.
• File read/write: ONLY so you can save & upload files. Absolutely no other reason.
• View network state: ONLY to handle changes in network connectivity.
• Keep device from sleeping: ONLY to prevent downloads from being cut off.

EASY...
Easy Browser's maker copied whole paragraphs of this app description to their page. Copy this next time: Get Naked Browser!

CURRENTLY MISSING
Geo-location, which is in the paid Pro version.

Designed and made by an independent software developer named Tony in Redwood City, California, United States of America.

Thanks to Mike & Charlotte for all the alpha testing.

Recent changes:
• bug fix: clear cookies on exit would run after crash and on app pause in some cases
• possible fix for crash on share which happens on some devices
• tiny speed optimizations
• 4+ minor UI/usability tweaks

Pretty fast Downloaded in about 2 seconds. Pretty fast and doesn't take up much storage space. Cool and simple interface. Awesome app, haven't found any problems with it so far.

Small problem Sometimes pages will just stop loading as if my internet went out, except all other online apps work. (I only have one or two tabs open, though, so it shouldn't be overwhelmed or anything.) Sometimes it's fixed if I completely close the app out, but not always. EDIT: I'm running stock Android Lollipop 5.0
