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.

    This was my "goto" browser for all things Flash and it worked great. Now now it freezes, won't respond to touch inputs, won't scroll. Very disappointed.

    This browser is worth the money. It has some drawbacks on a tablet, but for my slow 3g phone this thing is outstanding

    Last update now only allows mobile sites, will not convert to desktop version. Kind of pointless now...

    Good features, the only thing I don't like about it is that it will keep loading back previous tabs that I close. I have to clear search history in order to stop it. Sometime I get a download error gin the drop down that keeps reappearing after I remove it. I have to go into TB and wipe data then that resets to default and I have to add my settings back. This is still my go to browser between, Fir
