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.

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

ESPN & CBSsports are 2 that may not work in WebView-based browsers. Workarounds: visit mobile versions ( & or turn off "desktop" in Naked Browser bottom menu to request mobile versions of sites. Facebook in "desktop" mode may have issues on some devices.

• Close current tab by touching its tab bar button.
• The "desktop" button allows you to view full, rather than mobile, versions of sites.
• Swipe right --> to show bookmarks/history. Long press bookmarks/history to edit.

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

Naked Browser does not use data to spy, monitor, or even show ads. All data transfer is solely as a result 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 (WebKit) that's on your device--the same one used by the stock Browser. All data requests & retrievals, all cookies, all passwords, etc. are handled by the WebView and Naked Browser does not interfere with the default behavior.

Naked Browser does not and may never employ a phishing filter, which can warn you if you have visited a site suspected of hosting malware. This does not mean that Naked Browser is insecure, but that--like with any web browser--you should be careful what sites you visit.

• 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.

    Love it. Looking for a browser with great security and a lightweight UI. This is the best one out there by far.

    As much as I love it, I do wish the UI had nicer graphics. Nothing fancy, just nice and simple. When I have some credit I am sure to buy this app though. Thanks!

    Found this gem of a browser in 2012, and since then, download to all my devices. Can't use, won't use any other browser. Finally decided to get the paid version to support the Dev. No browser even comes close keep up the good work dev!
