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.
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.)

Plays flash content like a dream, it's super fast! It's so light I think my phone feels lighter in my pocket because of it!
Could access any blocked site by my country
If the compression can be increased just a little more, I could watch youtube videos on straighttalk with slowed down mobile data.
Maybe it's my tab 3 but it won't start and my tablet keeps restarting every time I try and use it. I had the free one and it also stopped working, but I loved them when they did work!
Doesn't cause excessive refreshes like chrome nor does it preload all pages hires perfect for older devices
It was 5*, but now, not so much. Best flash, best form for email, just like on your PC. Paid for Premium. But now doesn't want to load right for email, makes me hit the buttons half dozen times before it gets it right, picking or deleting, laggy, slow or crashes on Samsung Tab S, 3G Ram Octacore. Wish they could fix.
This app keeps saying it's not working I hate that I want to go on my stinken game ok that's why it's 3 stars I wish I could do 0 but 3 stars mean that it's not working but it used to work!!!!!
