1) Who are you, and what do you work on?

We are the Boat Browser Dev team. We are working on mobile browser development. ‘Browse the world easily and intelligently’ is our vision.

2) Tell us more about Boat Browser? Who are your users?

Boat Browser was born in 2011. It is a fully customized Android browser. Users can change the toolbars, settings, themes and add-ons to make the browser personalized and powerful. Cloud service, Syncing with multi-devices and Syncing with Firefox are all packed in the new release.

Since Boat Browser supports many languages, our users are from all over the world. Most of them are aware of other famous mobile browsers, but they still set Boat Browser as the default. We are greatly encouraged by our users.

3) Why did you decide to build Boat browser? What makes it unique?

What we believe is, people could do everything easily via a browser. So we created Boat Browser, and we are trying to make it more and more powerful.

Nowadays, compared with so many apps, it is not easy to make yourself 'Unique'. The major difference between Boat Browser and other browsers is that, it is really personalized. It can be customized fully, not limited to the themes, settings, gestures and add-ons. All the function icons on the toolbar/sidebar can be changed easily.

In short, Boat Browser is your own browser!

4) What are your future plans for Boat browser?

Improving the performance, releasing more features, add-ons, etc. We all believe that, good product is the most important thing.

5) What tools do you use to build Boat browser?

Computers, mobile devices… Just like other software developers.

6) What recommendations and tips would you give to someone interested in building a browser?

Firstly, we should say, it is not a good idea to build a browser, if you don’t have enough resources of technology, design idea and operating systems experience.

Mobile browser are not easy to build. So please make sure your team is strong enough, and then you can handle many complex technical problems.

We all know there are many mobile browsers in Google Play. Only some of them are successful. And they have gained most of the market share. To compete with them, your product must have at least one special feature, otherwise, you should find a strong way to promote it.

Then the last one is, you also need a professional operation team, to help you improve the user experience and revenue.

7) What would be your dream browser contain?

In our opinion, mobile browser should be a gateway to the Internet. It should be more powerful, and easier to use. So we are still on the way.

So far, on my Android 9 device, latest Boat is working mostly as it should.

The main things I noticed so far is:
• Does not persist when you leave the browser without closing it. Before, if I had a tab open, I could switch to another app, then switch back and all my tabs would still be open. Now, if I switch to another app and come back, everything that was open is gone.
• Does not show up in recent apps, but that was also an issue on my old phone with Android 6.0
• Open the bookmakrs or history, long press for the menu to delete or edit or anything else, the closer you are to the top of the list, the less the menu shows and you have to scroll the menu, instead of the menu shifting lower.

Boat Browser user here, too. Sad to see this abandoned, but you could see it coming. The developer had stopped updating this ages ago.

I have not been able to find a good replacement for this, and I've tried loads of alternatives. This is why Boat Browser was awesome:

- Can customise volume keys to cycle through tabs
- Apart from the tab bar, NO other permanent side or bottom bars
- Restores last used tabs on restart
- Great bookmarks manager with home screen speed-dial thumbs
- Can reopen closed tabs

I'd like to find something that has these features.

That's why I came to this thread. Unfortunately, from what I can tell, no other browsers even come close to having what I want. I like my tabs hidden personally, but very few will do a tab bar which, for me, is an absolute must and means 95% of every recommendation is automatically disqualified.

ABSOLUTE MUST have for me: tab bar with optional full screen, and speed dialer.

Only one I could find that had that, was Dolphin and it was absolutely buggy as hell to the point of unusable in tabbed mode. Even then, I hate the implementation of full screen hidden tabs because you have to drag from the top to reveal, and when you do, they don't go back to hidden, and it's already a PITA to drag from the top for access because 9/10, the phone just pulls the phone's notification panel.

I love the little auto-hiding button that reveals the tabs when in full screen. Nobody else has that.

Simply put, there's absolutely no replacement or alternative for Boat for those who love those features.

Still using it on all my devices since i've never crossed a better one: multi-tabs, gestures, reopen closed tab, speed dial, several user agents, fast rendering and efficient.
Been using latest known version (8.7.8) with premium features, since it's been dropped by the user, i'm sharing it here for you guys to enjoy.
