So what kind of great changes will I see from Habit Browser over FF or Chrome? I know FF likes to sit open in the background all the time, sucking up cpu processes.

There are no great changes. Habit doesnt use user sctipts. Its a broken browser. Use FF or Chrome instead. Theyre much better and faster than habit.

I am not a fan of the UI at all. Its not very polished and way too cluttered.

Gonna try it and compare with the one I'm currently using; which is UC Browser

Edit: Tried Habit and I have to say I did not like the UI at all, in addition to the fact that it is not really faster than UC browser, guess I'm going back to the latter, and that's after trying Dolphin for a year or more

What you would call "cluttered" is what makes this browser so unique and well-liked. While most people like the iOS-ish UIs [read: simple, lacking in tweakability, lacking in functional access, lacking in deep user control] and accept what the browser dev structured without the ability to tune it exactly the way one would want it, Habit is the "geek's browser", where it provides a heap of controls, tweaks, functional access, and allows one to make the browser behave exactly the way they want it.

To me, "polish" is exposing all possible controls and tweakability of a browser. Habit does this well. It is not for everyone. Just like not everyone wants to root and deeply customize their device--they rather use it as is. For those majority of the population [read: not geeky, not "truly" technical, don't know what ADB is lol], there are plenty of more "polished" and less "cluttered" 3rd-party browsers out there.....

I, for one, feel that Habit fills a sorely missing gap in the browser space. I just wished Habit would use its own framework so that it can remember passwords under KK.....

Compare
I'm a multi-browser user (Default, Lightning, UC and Firefox, mostly); how Habit compares with the (yet very rough) Now Material Browser is what I'd like to know...
