Hi!
After LineageOS has been merged with Android-7.1.2_R8, new builds feature several changes, including an all-new browser called Jelly. It mainly targets low-end Android devices and replaces the older AOSP browser. I came to know about it out after compiling the new source for building a ROM. Hope it'll be helpful for the devices that are no longer officially supported due to the lack of maintainers.


Features:
^Chrome - like tabs in recents menu.
^More secure than AOSP based.
^Based on the system webview.
^New homepage - DuckDuckGo. - CHANGED
^New UI.

Updates:
+Fixed age-old orientation(screen rotation) bug
+Supports Marshmallow again
+Default homepage and search engine now changed to Google
+Smoother scrolling
+Faster than before
+Title in the address bar
+Fixed translations for some languages
+Still on version 1.0
+More updates coming along...

Requirements:
A phone with Marshmallow or any higher version of Android.

Instructions:
IF YOU'RE INSTALLING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME, simply install as you use to do.
IF ALREADY INSTALLED, uninstall and reinstall the latest build.

I was wondering what Jelly looked like when I saw it in the LOS changelog, but my device got Gello instead of this (or I did something wrong). Gonna try this, thank you.

Yeah, Gello is a different browser. Although is it also designed for Qualcomm based devices for optimised performance, but it is not supposed to be in the new builds of LineageOS.
Though it wholly upon the maintainer of your device. If your maintainer decides to ship Gello, this will replace the new default browser Jelly.

It's about time that a XDA member started compiling this for us. Thanks!

EDIT: Mind updating it to the latest build that fixed the orientation change?

Hi!
Thank you for the complement! Orientation is already fixed in this app. AFAIK, there's no problem regarding orientation on in the app my device. Even if it's there in the app on your device, please report back. I'll try to fix it. ☺

    Will this be maintained by you if team lineage pushes new updates to the apk?

    I will surely try to push every new update to this thread as soon as the developers of LineageOS update the app.

    Also, can you please upload it to here? I lost my copy, and I think that others will also appreciate it.
    Well, I have a working copy installed on my phone, and a couple of version backed up on my computer; one of which is bound to be the working version :). The only problem is that without uninstalling mine (ie breaking my daily) and installing one of the others, I cant be sure which one is the working version :confused:
    I realised after my last post saying I couldn't test which one was the working one, I realised that I could post some of the ones I did have and let you test for yourself.:cyclops:

    I think I have three, which includes the latest.
    So the oldest one I have is attached. I also vaguely remember that they appeared to be getting smaller in size, and this one is also the largest APK I have.

    Please let me know if its the working one under MM.
