Free Private Browser
100,000 - 500,000 downloadsAdd this app to your lists
This is the browser I use everyday on my phone and tablet. I wanted to a browser that was easy to clear everything, wouldn't make a bunch of sounds at embarrassing times, was full screen, and didn't have the annoying habit of running out of windows. It uses the built in Webkit or Chromium rendering engine, so the app is super small. I make several optimization, so its much faster then the stock android browser and consumes less memory.
Note: Private Browser is designed to be super fast, so it uses caching. To clear the cache and everything but any file downloads, press the shredder button, or press the search key if your device has one. You can also use the two finger down, up, down gesture to clear everything.
Features of Private Browser:
Switch User Agent (lets you tell servers your a Normal Computer (IE), iPhone, iPad, Mac, Etc.)
Option to Mute Media Volume on startup
Flash Support (Requires Plug-in)
Full Screen Browsing Including Immersive mode
Search Button clears everything, and asks if you want to unload from memory.
HTML5 streaming video support
Blocks most Popups
Won't respond to location requests
And Lots Lots More.
The browser is now designed to be used with gestures. If you put two fingers together and slide them down, it will reveal the url bar.
The complete list of gestures are:
Up: toggle url bar
Down: toggle url bar
Left: go back
Right: go forward
Down then Up then Down: close down browser and clear out everything.
This is the free version, there is one ad on the url bar, it goes away when your url bar isn't open. There is a paid version (Private Browser) that doesn't contain any ads.
If you find a bug or want a feature, please email me. I love hearing from users!
Thanks for looking at my browser.
