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

This is the paid version of Puffin Web Browser with no restrictions regarding number of sites launched at the same time.

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.

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.

    I've had puffin on my galaxy tablet for quite some time and I like it. The problem is that the type predictions in the address bar are delayed. I'll begin to type, the website I want appears automatically, but then just as I touch my selection it refreshes and is an entirely different website than I intended to select. Seems like an easy fix for your programmers. Please take a look. Great product

    Bought this app about a year ago for the flash to play my Facebook games. Loved it, but since the new version all it does it shut down in middle of games. It does this at least 5 or 6 times n a 2 hour period! Very disappointed!

    Finally, a browser that supports the Olive Plugin for reading newspapers. I would give it 5 stars if it was a bit faster.

    Almost as good as a desktop browser. To access websites using Flash, Puffin is very useful. It isn't perfect, but it's better than most.
