Why Now Browser engine should be fastest and better than Chromium?



Time to extend features here!
Now Browser is officially the lightest web browser on the market (excluding naked with no UI),
but let's imagine its speed with lots of powerful features without taking care of app size.

This is Now Browser Extended Program!

Who have said that full featured browsers can't be super ultra fast?
Now Browser Extended is more powerful: fastest, with some new stuff in the UI and with killer features like AdBlock,
Bookmarks management, TOR browser support and yes... I'm planning FlashPlayer for Kitkat too (I've already implemented
flash with kitkat using this apk)

You can even send feature request with a beautiful coded form, check it at
www.nowbrowser.eu5.org/extended

well...


...Let's see the new extended features!

• AdBlock
• Now Browser Engine Xtended
• Bookmarks management
• Unlimited tabs for Web File compressor
• Tor proxy support
• Powerful integrated search tips
• Customizable search engine
• Immersive mode
• JavaScript Superfast Mode
• Extended Program access, you make feature request, we listen!
• Custom secure hosts
• Find In Page feature
• Multiple and customizable user agents
• Fully working multitasking between tabs
• Smooth animations
• Popup blocker

other features:

★ Google Now themed
★ Powerful tabbed browsing
★ Navigation gestures: (thanks to Lighting Browser for concepts)
- Swipe from left to right to go to the next page
- Swipe from right to left to go to the previous page
- Double-tap on a zoomed page to fit the screen perfectly
- Long press a tab to close it
- Long press the back button to exit from the browser
★ Support for Flash Player, to play web games on your smartphone! (Android 4.1.x and older)
★ X Connectionsave Mode™*: don't charges images to save your
3G traffic limit
★ Incognito Mode
★ Differents user agent (Desktop, Phone)
★ Java Script Acceleration*: Use Java Script Superfast Mode to enable the JavaScript rendering of webpages
★ Full screen mode
★ Working Hystory
★ Importable bookmarks

Some NEW screen?







You have any other ideas? Other customizations? Just tell me, I'll happy listen to you user feedback :cowboy:
A big thanks to ACR for Lighting Browser, that I used to study how make Now Browser better, lighter and faster!

Thank you expecially to you for supporting and give me precious tips to power up this stuff!
:D

I know it can maybe make it bigger but can you implement home screen with fast dials like opera or Chrome? I'm looking for ever for browser that is light on ram and battery but have fast dials instead of opening bookmarks and looking for site I want :)

You mean like "quick shortcuts" to your favourite websites?
Yes, this is a great idea, let's see how much the apk size will increase :D

really awesome. fast and easy to use.

one suggestion,a better way to organize the bookmarks will be perfect. Bookmark Folders or changing the sequence of bookmarks for example.

Liked your browser enough to go pro. However, I had a problem with downloads reappearing in my notification bar. Took me a minute to realize I had to go to Download Manager and delete them. Might need to put a connection to the download manager to make it easier to delete downloads. Why did they keep reappearing in my notifications? I also use Habit Browser and Naked Browser, and never had this happen. An I missing a setting?

I checked out this new browser.Look's and size were just not matching.Thought,I will now use this browser instead of Naked browser pro.But,it force closes everytime on my Xolo A500s android:-4.2.2
MT6572.
Would have given 5 stars if it would have worked.
Please fix this

Review:
- UI is better than Naked Browser.
- Fast, but still can't beat Naked Browser.
- This app size is a bit larger than Naked Browser (AFAIK).

Suggestion:
- Add the exit button in your browser.

great browser

played around with it it's awesome and fast


some suggestions

smaller tabs

after i activated full screen mode it show tabs/url/bar when i'm scrolling and hides them when i stop scrolling
google chrome does this but in regular browsing mode

it would be alot better if it hides everything but the webpage (nav/stat)

if u'll go with full screen all the way plz consider adding immersive mode

or transparent nav/statesbar

for me it's the latter


i hope that made sense :D:D

Really suits me, great work! Thanks!
2 ideas: if you could make the address bar empty on the new tab, it would be great. And the second thing is, as other mentioned before, the speedial home screen, that possibility would be great.
