    A member over at XDA created a browser. It is super lightweight, fast, smooth, and has a small file size. The file size is only 171KB. 171KB! I recommend that you guys check it out. It also includes some material design. Here is the link for anyone who is interested: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...owser.nowbasic

    And no, I am not being paid to say this, Lol.

    Very nice. I like the minimal-esque design.

    Nice. I'll probably stick with chrome though.

    What does it do/have better than Chrome, FF, etc. besides its style/design?

    Speed. It is really fast and smooth. The scrolling performance is better than Chrome.

    I just downloaded it. The transparency at the top is pretty cool.

    I think its a neat little browser.

    Guess it doesn't have the same functionality compared to the Now browser, but I like things clean and simple which is why I mainly use Chrome has my main browser and Opera my second.

    If the dev added the option of creating folders I could get pretty hooked on it I think.

    I am trying it out, but I don't think it is very "material design" yet...the menu animations especially seem pretty conventional to me. But it is fast and smooth. I am not all that thrilled with the conventional tabbed design...I like Chromes "card" design better. Open tabs are much easier to close. Everything should be gesture based IMO.

    Cannot get Flash to work though. Even though I have the APK installed and have it enabled in the settings.

    Does it have anything to do with Breach browser? They look similar.

    Has a pro version no thanks. Now don't call me cheap but if I was to put this on my parents Nexus devices they would have to pay for them each and I don't have no credit card associated with their Google accounts.
