Hello everyone,

After Santa brought me a new locked and not rooted phone, and it turned out it's not recommended to unlock it (Sony of course), I began to mourn for the "quick controls" of the AOSP Browser.
This weekend I had some time, and was able to make enough changes to the original code, so the Browser can be installed normally and to work pretty decent.

Requirements:
  • Lollipop
  • (probably) Chrome to be the default browser

Tested on:
  • Sony Z5 - Lollipop 5.1.1
  • Nexus 4 - Lollipop 5.1.1

Not working:
  • Bookmarks sync
  • Full screen
  • Incognito mode (fixed in v 0.2)
If I have free time and there is interest to it, I may try to fix those

Hey. Nice browser. Works on my LG K4 2017 running Android 6.0.1 without root. Are you still developing the browser?

I have been looking for AOSP Browser for my device for almost 3 years 😄😅 Finally I have found the right one that doesn't crash on launch. Thanks.
