Expert's Review

"High-speed browser"

Reviewed by / Aug 27, 2014

Puffin Web Browser is minimalistic browser for those who just want to surf the web

Lots of users don't need bookmarks sync, user-agent, integration with other apps and all this kind of advanced-user stuff. They just want to navigate, that's it, visit websites, read articles and watch videos on it. That's all. For those users, Puffin Web Browser is a good choice, since it's a light, simple and fast mini browser. Well, we must say one of the fastest we've ever tried.

It supports flash, although it isn't not optimized for playing flash games on it. It's really fast since it renders full version of web pages quickly and reliably thanks to cloud servers. What's more, it integrates an interesting feature: keyboard and mouse button that launches your Android keyboard and a touchpad. Well, that's useful if you didn't get used to the tap-like navigation.

You can choose between web browser-like view or mobile browser mode. From settings, you can also select block pop-up windows, set home page, load flash, zoom buttons or clear cache and history. Tapping on the bookmark icon, next to the browser bar, you'll access your bookmarks and navigation history.

And not really much. Did you want to navigate with no additives, didn't you? Puffin Browser is a choice.

Developer's original description available here
Puffin Web Browser is a wicked fast Mobile Flash Browser. Once users experience the thrill of using Puffin, regular Mobile Internet just feels like torture. Puffin Free is the free version of Puffin family, and supports Adobe Flash during the daytime everyday (It usually starts from 6 am to 6 pm, but the duration is subject to change without prior notice).

Wicked Fast: Puffin speeds up mobile browsing by shifting the workload from the resource-limited devices to the cloud servers, and resource-demanding webpages can run super-fast on your phones or tablets.

Cloud Protection: All traffic from Puffin app to Puffin server are encrypted, a protection from nearby hackers. It’s safe to use public non-secure WiFi through Puffin, but not safe at all for most browsers.

The Latest Flash: We keep improving our cloud servers, and provide the latest version (16.0) of the Flash player over the cloud.

Save your bandwidth: Puffin uses proprietary compression algorithm to transmit web data to your device, and it can save up to 90% of your bandwidth on regular web browsing. (Please be noted that streaming Flash content or videos requires more bandwidth than the normal usage.)

☆ Incredible page load and rendering speed
☆ Adobe Flash support over cloud during the daytime (also works on Android 4.4+)
☆ Download to cloud (up to 20M per file)
☆ Theater mode for Flash videos and games
☆ Virtual trackpad and gamepad
☆ Add-on functions (Pocket, Evernote, Facebook, translator and more)
☆ Color theme for toolbar and sidebar
☆ Fastest JavaScript engine
☆ Full web experience (desktop and mobile view)
☆ Incognito tab: Auto-clean your browsing activities in the app

=== In-App-Purchase ===
* One-Year subscription of Adobe Flash 24/7 support over cloud for $1.99
* One-month subscription of downloading files to cloud (up to 1G per file) for $0.99

===== Limitations =====
* The data centers of Puffin Web Browser are in the US and the cloud servers can only access public web sites from US geolocations.
* For users outside the US, local contents, especially videos of local interest, may not be accessible from the US due to geo-restrictions in their home countries.
* Puffin is blocked in some countries (e.g., China, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates) and by some schools (e.g., in United States).
