Default Browser that has true text reflow, pie control, and flash support

Does such a browser exist?

Looking for true text reflow, not that double tap zoom... But where you zoom in manually and it keeps reflowing text to show up on the screen.

-Looking for flash support in the browser with 4.4.x

-Looking for pie controls like the AOSP browser has in the labs section.


Any advice?

Hoping: To have xperia z ultra bezeless, front facing dual waterproof speakers, center rear mounted hard buttons with camera and flash, along with wireless charging, double tap to wake stock, always listening google now like motorola, & 8" screen with stylus like my old n5120

Not sure, but have you checked out Firefox? It supports add-ons and it has text reflow.

Are you sure it has the same pie feature as aosp browser? Also known as quick controls?
