Experience the wealth of the internet with the speed and simplicity of Lightning Plus, a web browser built to rival the giants. Browse fast on your Android phone or tablet, and see through a portal to the infinite information of the internet.

● Design - Lightning's interface was carefully crafted so you can browse as efficiently as possible without sacrificing those features that mean the most to you. Tabs and Bookmarks are all tucked neatly away in side drawers, only a swipe away, allowing maximum screen viewing with minimal interference from the browser's chrome.

● Speed - By utilizing the WebKit rendering engine that comes built into your Android device, we can ensure a swift, lightweight experience that won't disappoint.

● Privacy - Use Incognito Mode to browse without leaving a footprint, download Orbot and turn on proxy support to mask your identify and location, use StartPage or DuckDuckGo for your search engine, or disable settings that you think leave you at risk. Whatever your concern, Lightning is here to help.

● Features - Full-screen, check. Inverted Rendering, check. All the search engines you want, check. Search Suggestions, Bookmarks, History, User Agents, whatever you need, Lightning does it.

● Open-source - Just as Android open-source, so is Lightning. We believe that the best software is built when communities come together to engineer the best solution. Head over to the repository on GitHub to fork, contribute, or translate. Whoever you are, there's a place for you in open-source.

● Free - Check out the paid version for AdBlock and Unlimited Tabs. Free version is limited to ten tabs open at a time.

    This is great. So fast and no slow down webpage. But only two problems. (1). Need a native download manager. (2). Need to change the system. For ex: if I have only one tab and if I close the tab then it close the whole app. Change the system.

    Unfortunately WebRTC leaks my IP. Until this can be corrected I can't recommend this browser.

    Excellent in all ways. Speed. Check. Privacy. Check. Lightweight. Check. Now all I need is an option to save pages.

    I love how fast this browser is but it's hard to make it my main browser when it crashes so often. It most often crashes when watching videos on vimeo or youtube. If you could fix that issue and add make the url bar disappear as you scroll down a page, that'd be awesome!

    Very fast and looks gorgeous. One con, when you close all tabs the app closes. I recommended!
