    The Lightning Browser

    ● The Most Powerful Web Browser of Its Size (0.2 MB) ●

    Read the review by XDA

    Download from the Play Store

    Visit the source code on github

    ● Holo Interface
    ● Supports Froyo to JellyBean
    ● Tabbed Internet Browsing
    ● Fast Start Times
    ● Small Footprint
    ● Supports Adobe Flash Player
    ● Fast Browsing
    ● Smooth Scrolling

    Enjoy Lightning Browser, one of the smallest browsers around. It is a high-performance small-sized browser built for those who don't want the cumbersome slowness or size of Firefox or Chrome. Currently it looks best on a tablet, but it will be optimized for phone sized screens soon. I will try to update this as often as I have time (I am a student...). This is my most major app release to date and I'm proud of my work, so if you have ANY problems at all, PLEASE contact me. I always respond, as those that have contacted with me before know... and I'm nice

    ● Long-press a tab to delete it
    ● Long-press the back button to exit the browser

    NOTE: Currently, the browser is limited to five tabs... unless you change it in the source code

    Upcoming Features/Fixes:
    ● Integration with Google drive (if it doesn't increase the app size too much)
    ● Feel free to make more suggestions...


    Permissions Explanation
    ● permission.INTERNET - Obviously needed to access the internet :-P
    ● permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
    ● permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Needed for downloading files
    ● permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - Needed for sites that want your location (you can deny location access)
    ● com.android.browser.permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - needed for reading history
    ● com.android.browser.permission.WRITE_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS - needed for log browser history

    The browser got mentioned by Francisco Franco on xda-developer tv recently. I'm making a good impression :-)

    Too bad the app community here doesn't seem as interested
