Naked Browser web browser




    An Android web browser
    TRUST: Right permissions with no spying.
    SPEED: No bloat with focus on efficiency.
    FEATURES: Crash restore, undo closed tabs, infinite tabs & more.
    FREE: As in no cost. Not for profit & not ad-supported but the sites you visit may be.

    1) Uses a minimal user interface to conserve resources. If you do not like the screenshots or do not want to learn a new interface then do not install it. Interface uses ENGLISH ONLY.
    2) If you do not like the app name or icon then do not install it.
    3) TIPS section below has important info.

    I wanted a trustworthy browser with features I need yet using as few resources as possible. I hope you enjoy it.

    • Cannot see the browser menus? READ on:
    • Close current tab by tapping its tab bar button.
    • The "desktop" button allows you to request and view full, rather than mobile, versions of web sites.
    • Swipe right --> to show bookmarks/history. Long press bookmarks/history to edit.
    • One finger zoom: Double-tap and hold, then swipe to zoom.
    • Undo close tab: Long press new tab "+" button.
    • Choose a search engine for URL bar search: Long press "go" arrow.
    • Adobe Flash support for most pre-Android 4.4 devices: Download Flash player from the Adobe web site & install
    • Bottom menu "exit" button is the only way to gracefully quit, and do things like clear history on exit.
    • Read through browser options and bookmarked help page for more tips.

    If your device has no menu button, you may be able to long press the device app switch button or back button. SHOW MENU GESTURES: Swipe up from bottom corner, OR swipe down from top edge of browser window. Paid Pro of version of Naked Browser provides many more options.

    This thread discusses violations in several popular web browsers:
    Not concerned with privacy? Spying wastes resources (battery, bandwidth, CPU) and slows your device.

    Naked Browser never spies, monitors, or even adds ads. All data transfer results only of your requests & retrievals. Because Naked Browser is designed for efficiency, you may use more data simply because you can browse sites faster.

    Naked Browser uses the Android WebView that's on your device to display web pages. All data requests & retrievals, all cookies, all passwords, etc. are handled by the WebView and Naked Browser does not interfere with the default behavior. However, versions of Android before 5.0 do not get System WebView updates via the Play Store, and there are known problems with older WebView:
    Android 7+ uses Chrome as WebView, if installed.

    • Internet: ONLY for your web page requests & retrievals. Absolutely no monitoring or snooping, & ad-less too.
    • File read/write: ONLY so you can save & upload files. Absolutely no other reason.
    • View network state: ONLY to handle changes in network connectivity.
    • Keep device from sleeping: ONLY to prevent downloads from being cut off.

    Geo-location, which is in the paid Pro version.

    Designed and made by an independent software developer named Tony in Redwood City, California, United States of America.

    Thanks to Mike & Charlotte for all the alpha testing.

    I had already bought pro version and been used for years. Now I can't reinstall naked browser pro. It seems that you make a new pro version. should I purchase it again?

    Just came here to give one star. The dev is a really ignorant child and this app is mediocre at best.

    Great app it's simple and like the double tap tap to delete feature, tiny too at around 300kb app size.
