DESCRIPTION
Lucid Browser is a free and open source web browser designed to be small, light, fast, and simple. The app itself is as small as about 4 MB, and the Donate version is only about 2 MB. The browser uses a custom homepage that loads locally for quick start-ups. Although it is small in size, it packs a punch with all the features you would normally see in a mobile browser. For example, you can import bookmarks from other browsers that use file formats of HTML or JSON. The browser also allows for complete management of bookmarks with folder categorization. By default, Lucid Browser uses Ecosia, a project designed to help plant trees. Lucid Browser also comes with many settings and ways to personalize the look. It is easy to use, very handy, and allows you to surf the net with speed.

Awesome browser! Keep it up!
One request: Usually there is a .com button on my keyboard, right next to the space bar. Could you add it here as well?

Awesome browser man, keep it up.
I'd like to ask if it's possible to add an option to autohide the action bar during navigaton as well as adding the option to display the most visited sites when typing an adress?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A few in the play store have mentioned it in reviews, but the ability to close the browser would be optimal. Currently the only way to get back to the home screen is the home button on my phone. I assume this is intentional, but for full browser replacement on android for me I need a way to exit the program even if it becomes an advanced option in the settings menu. Otherwise very lightweight and intuitive to use and I really like it.

I would prefer holding the back button to close the browser - or ideally options for making holding do this of course.

I realise this is probably a big ask but Lastpass integration would be nice as well. It pains me and my phone battery that Dolphin (and possibly Firefox ...?) are the only browsers to offer this.

Lovely app BTW, thanks for all the hard work.

Looks good but a couple of feature request.

-Ability to close the app.
-Setting a blank home page
-clearing cache, browsing history,cookies etc when exiting.

Also, swype(keyboard) doesn't show a ".com" on the keyboard which usually works with all browsers. Please check that.

Thanks
