I originally posted this for the oneplus one, but theoretically it should benefit any device using the snapdragon processor and maybe other processors too?

The code is found here:

If you try to build it takes a long time to get the code so be patient.

Basically this is an optimized browser made for the snapdragon processor. I have been running it for a few weeks and it is pretty solid. Really fast. I did some benchmarks vs firefox and chrome and it is between 10% - 30% faster. It just seems snappier than other browsers (Chrome and Firefox). If any one can benchmark it against other browsers I would appreciate if you could post the results.

Here are images of the benchmarks.

Here is a screenshot of the browser

Screen Short of Browser

It asks for a bunch of permissions, but I am not sure which ones are actually necessary so I left it as is.

Also if you have an older version of the SWE browser you will have to uninstall it since I signed it with a different key.

Here is link to the download:

It looks and feels like aosp browser and it's pretty good, if only it had account sync and quick controls like the aosp it'd be just perfect.

Oh i'm so excited to try this! A while back I read about this and have always wanted to try it. The problem is no one was actively building it and I didn't want to try building it myself. Thanks for taking the time to build it.

This works amazingly good on my note 2 stock 4.4.2, will you be able to put in features like closing all browser tabs at once?

Is the size of your browser justified ? Cause many other are smaller except chrome ....
