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.

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.

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 (14.0) 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.)

Features:
☆ Incredible page load and rendering speed
☆ Adobe Flash support (also works on Android 4.4+)
☆ Download to cloud (up to 100M 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)

==== 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).

    HTTPS doesn't work. I get an Error 113 (net::ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH) when loading URL. Works on all other browsers. Please fix.

    This app works great for sites using flash. Living in Japan, I also find it plays many videos from Yahoo Sports, etc... that Chrome does not. I highly recommend it.
