Experience 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 infinite information.

● 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. Adblock, 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.

    I have to say, I've just been using this for a day and it's the fastest browser I've seen. Very good.

    I'll need a few days of usage to make an informed judgment. It has a stripped down look, but there are more than enough customizations to satisfy me. Anything is better than Chrome in that respect.

    The speed and memory efficiency of this browser puts Chrome and Firefox to shame. It makes my Moto X and Nexus 7 far more usable. A million thanks to the dev for building it!

    Lightweight and fast, opens and closes instantaneously and switches between tabs with ease, even despite the poor memory management of Lollipop. Adblock is definitely worth the asking price for the paid version.

    Popup ads come through even when ad blocking is turned on. Some links on Facebook won't render

    I was shocked by how this newest update improved lightning! The new full screen transition is much less disturbing, and this UI is as beautiful and intuitive as what chrome should have been. Money well well spent.
