    Using this browser as my main one has really opened my eyes. It is a superb little thing. PROS: Websites are loaded very quickly, advert free, saving both time and data, and most importantly it has rendered every single website that I have visited correctly. Most features are very quick and efficient to use. CONS: There is no import/export of settings and bookmarks, meaning lots of manual set

    This is an excellent browser alternative for people that don't need all the extra bloat of Chrome, Firefox, etc. and want a straightforward mobile browser. The fact that it's open source is another huge plus IMO. Still do seem to be some bugs however, such as embedded YouTube videos not appearing. Overall, would still definitely recommend!

    Only browser I've tried that offers a good balance of peformance and simple, clean, usable interface. Sure there are some things to improve but the dev is responsive to communiction in a positive way so I'm sure Lightning will improve. Ignore recent review saying clear history & cache doesn't work - it does. Well worth paying considerably less than the price of a beer for this!

    Ability to restore tabs on restart is spotty. Privacy features are flawed: clearing cache, cookies, and history seems to not work. Clearing the app data in settings, a radical step that will cause you to lose bookmarks as well, does seem to do the job.
