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.

    Server disconnects every 10 minutes. Its very frustrating. I can be on wifi or 4G with solid signal and it still needs to reconnect every 10 minutes

    Until recently the browser was extremely fast because it's using Puffin's own server network and it still has Flash functionality. It's "seen" by Flash as a Linux browser. The reduction in stars is because of regular connectivity problems over the last several weeks.
