Boat Browser is a fast and complete mobile browser flash supported

Boat Browser isn't as well-known as other browsers that also have computer versions. It came up as an Android web browser, and was specifically developer for it. Perhaps for this reason, this is one of the best choices if you're looking for a powerful and fast Android web browser. Let's zoom in its main features.

Boat Browser supports multi-tab. Scroll tabs horizontally and tap the one you want to display. It supports also volumen key control for switching tabs and zooming page. From fast-access features you can take screenshots, save pages, share links and disable multi-tab. You can set from the the User Agent which is how you want to display websites (you can choose as Android, iPhone, Desktop, Safari, Mozilla...). Boat Browsers allows you to bookmark you favorites webpages, import, export and sync with stock browsers bookmarks.

One of the features we liked most is the customizable toolbar. You can add the tools that you use most, in order to have fast access to them: search, menu, fullscreen, day mode, lock, history, homepage... whatever you want. What's more, Boat Browser supports "Google Voice Search", multi-touch Pinch Zoom, websites shortcuts, app2sd and many other features.

If you're looking for a fast browser, that supports Google Voice Search and Flash and which, in addition, contains all the basic features you need for an advanced web surfer, Boat Browser is your choce. High recommendable.

    Problem is that you cannot sort the bookmarks the way YOU want them sorted, only the ways the program maker allows you. They could learn a LOT from Dolphin, & although Boat seems like a great browser, this is a deal-breaker for me :-(

    This looks like a good browser except it doesn't support Kit Kat. So it doesn't have the flash I need for a browser. I'm uninstalling.

    I use fb on this. When I "see more posts" and get quite deep down in that page... And select a photo to view the comments..and then when I tap the back button.. The previous page is opened fresh and I go to the top and I have to scroll all the way down rather than resuming at the previous point.. Please Fix that as soon as possible

    (Update as July 2014: no longer usable!! No text wrapping on Android 4.4.2...so I have to use Opera. Downgrade to 3 stars until fixed.)I am so impressed with this browser! At long last, my search is over. I have found the browser that does everything I needed it to do...and does it flawlessly. I will be recommending this to all I know...whether they want to hear or not. :) Well done...great job.
