Help - Tips and Tricks

Open link in foreground:
If you have open links in background checked then you can open a link in a new tab and show it immediately by long pressing either "open in new tab" or "open in incognito tab". If you have open links in background unchecked you can do the reverse by long pressing either of those options.

Reopen closed tab:
Simply long press the new tab button (not in overflow menu) and it will be reopened.

Share link:
You can add this option to the long click popup dialog from Display Settings > Edit link dialog menu

Undelete or Unmove bookmark:
Long press back button (not hardware or onscreen back)

Open bookmark in new tab:
Long press the bookmark without moving it to show the menu

Incognito bookmark folder:
Long press plus button when viewing bookmarks to show hidden folder. You can delete it and it will still be kept, but if you rename it and delete it the folder will be replaced with an empty one.

Use Hardware Rendering (Advanced Settings)
This enables hardware rendering for webviews and should only be enabled if you're experiencing very bad performance. It might help, or it wont make a difference in which case leave it off. This will use additional resources and RAM - it might also use more battery so you shouldnt enable this if the webview is rendering and scrolling fine.

Maximum performance
The most efficient layout is the bottom drawer layout, it only has 2 immediate children: the webview and the the toolbar. The bottom drawer is only made visible once you click the tab counter or when you touch at the bottom of the screen, this lets the UI avoid any additional layout calculation for the drawer. Scrolling is noticeably smoother with the bottom drawer and it most likely uses less battery in comparison to the other layouts. You can also turn off the pull to refresh to reduce the touch logic albeit for an insignificant gain. Disabling the adblock and manually adding urls as needed drastically reduces the amount of RAM the adblocker takes up and I would definitely recommend this.

Permissions

GPS - For websites that want to use location
Storage Access - Downloading files, crash logs, and for the built-in file manager
Network Access - Have a guess
Read/Write Bookmarks and History - Speed needs to be able to import bookmarks from chrome
Draw Over Apps - Floating window for tablet mode so Speed can draw over apps

Credits

This project would not be possible without the amazing work ACR development so huge thanks to Anthony! You can find the Lightning Browser repository and source code here: https://github.com/anthonycr/Lightning-Browser
I'd also encourage everyone to try out lightning browser (play store)

Since Speed is a fork of lightning, parts of Speed that contain lightning browser source code are licensed under Mozilla Public License 2.0
You can find the source code for Speed here: https://github.com/fusionxr/Speed-Browser
Additional classes and layouts that do not contain lightning code are not required to be disclosed under the MPL 2.0 hence why I've ommited them and the build will fail.

Special thanks to @beemgee, @IAmLucky, @Mrxyzl, @ratbags, @60nine for their early beta testing and continued help in improving Speed

Also huge thanks to everyone for all the support and for putting up with and reporting bugs.

I'm glad it works for you! As you mentioned, chrome takes up a lot of ram on my galaxy s3, and I'm pretty sure most people face that problem with 1gb of ram, hence my reason for making this app.

I'm thinking of publishing this app on the Google play marketplace if I get enough good feedback.

Thank you! I'm flattered that this is going to be your default browser.
As requested I've fixed the dark theme and the menu icon coloring in incognito mode. I updated the attached apk in first post.
I'm working on fixing the full screen mode and incognito mode too.

How do I get the border around the address bar dark like in the screenshots you posted?

You're using the wrong apk. Use the apk attached in the first post. Hope you like it!

Unfortuneately no. Net yet. I am working on this.



Fixed bookmarks not saving, updated apk. When you refer to tabs do you mean incognito tabs?
No i mean the previous process ( websites) that i opened before
You say fixed does it mean there are no crashes or just the bookmarks saving ?

---------- Post added at 02:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:52 PM ----------

Ok the bookmark problem is solve but crashes still exist
Can you do sth with that in future updates ?

Love this so far. Could we have the option for the stack of tabs to come down from the top rather than build from the bottom of the screen?

Option added! Updated apk in first post. Also full screen is working (slightly buggy and some pages will not display properly).

Great use of material design - looks really clear. When will be released to google play?

I might release it on google play once its a bit more polished. Maybe in march?

Other changes:

- Contextual actionbar when highlighting text now overlays search bar
- find in page overlays toolbar as well
- drawers resize according to toolbar visibility in fullscreen mode

    lol, I'm just using this browser from yesterday and no, I never posted here before and, YES, I absolutely love coloured tabs, and I would really look forward to see it implemented in this great browser

    By multi window I mean the ability to have it working with phones with native-multi window (e.g. LG, Samsung). Since I used Chrome before (left it because it's just too heavy for battery and RAM), I was able to have it along with another app (not much of them, honestly) like notes. I would really like to see this ability

    I will look into multi window for the supported devices.

    New version doesn't install for me. It asks whether I want to open package in one of several apps none of which are package installer. Edit: fixed. Had to choose Nova launcher to open!?

    probably bad download

    Webview is already up to date. My phone is the idol3 with CM 12. 1

    Can you post a screenshot? Also is it all videos?

    Yes do it please, it could prove to be useful when not using the "exit browser when closing last tab" function, and thanks for your update :):thumbup:

    next release, and you are very welcome!

    Is there any way except entering a full path e.g: file:///storage/emulated/0/index.html?
    I'd like to open HTML from file manager but it seems this browser dosn't supports this.:(

    Fixed in this release.

    @Fusionxr
    I'm using TugaBrowser or Jswart's one

    I will try and figure out where he's storing the bookmarks

    i agree... i wish the possibilities to save downloads in external sdcard

    I will fix in next release

    @Fusionxr,
    This browser is awesome!
    The only thing missing is the chrome bookmarks import. It keeps saying "no bookmarks found"
    I copied my chrome bookmarks from the root folder but the browser doesn't see when I try to import from backup. What extension should the file be? Do you any app to back up chrome bookmarks?
    Really wanna adopt this browser

    lol there's no need to import from file for chrome bookmarks, that wont work. You can try the "import from chrome" option or if that doesnt work can you try to see if it works in lightning browser? If you're on 6.0 they removed access to chrome/stock bookmarks but I'm not 100% sure.

    @Fusionxr Tablet mode is real nice! Thanks for this! Was wondering if you could add on the URL bar drop down list a arrow at the far right of the choices that copies the selection to the URL bar? Chrome does it and helps when a history suggestion URL shows but want to add or delete to adjust it without having to type the whole URL thanks!

    I circled the arrow I mean in this pic so you can see what I mean.

    This is on my roadmap, next release hopefully

    Bugfix release with lots of improvements. Tablet mode tabs now resize according to available space, rearrange should work now too. Cards layout finally beta ready - please report any bugs besides incognito mode not working. Bottom drawer with bookmarks and files view in cards layout, not sure if you guys would want the side bookmark drawer so left it out. Fullscreen mode improved but still some issues with scrolling. File manager removed from left side drawer, there will be a replacement in near future. Bookmark import/export menu from side drawer now more obvious, I replaced the folder icon with settings cog. Alot of drawer layout optimisations and general bugfixes. Bookmark settings from main settings will no longer work so dont use it, I will be removing completely in next release. Enjoy!

    The bookmark import from google chrome doesent work :(
    i get "no bookmarks" found message every time...

    Could you add bookmark import from CAF chrome versions ? Thanks :D

    I will have to find out where the bookmarks are stored on the CAF versions before I can get it to work. Are you using a specific version (RSBrowser) ?

    No its not [emoji12]

    Fixed. Forgot to upload to github

    Couple of minor annoyances in newer versions - think someone has already mentioned this one: it has something to do with the open/copy link dialogue box which seems to popup at random when I slide open the side tabs. The other one is pull down to refresh - is there an option to stop this behaviour as I seem to initiate by mistake all too often.

    Thanks for a great browser.

    Fixed, and pull to refresh can be disabled, was planning to get around to doing that.

    some extra little annoyances...

    if you have set the bottom tabs layout, sometimes it's almost impossible to click on the buttons at the bottom of the page (in this case "facebook" and "twitter" - see screenshot)
    i've noticed it first with those "accept cookies" buttons which are mostly placed at the far bottom of the web page footers...

    I plan to enable sensitivity adjustment and I agree it can be quite annoying sometimes.

    Agreed, please make pull to refresh optional as ( at least for me, but I see I'm not the only one ) it makes browsing really difficult, ending up reloading pages constantly.

    Done

    In the URL history, when I start to type address, I see the same URL several times.

    Is it a history suggestion by any chance?

    How do you hide the nav bar? The nav bar doesn't disappear when play video in full mode like other browsers. It blocked the video.

    Try to update your webview, also whats your device and Android version?

    Been trying this browser for the last couple of hours, feels smooth and great, so far those are the issues and the suggestions I can give:

    Issues:
    -It's quite hard to snap through the tabs, and animations are not that smooth when doing it. Since you can swipe only outside from adress bar, while swiping to the left is not that problem, swiping to the right it's uncomfortable. So making the whole top bar swipeable would be really appreciated. And improving animations too
    -Seems like browser can't found stock browser to sync the history (I'm on LG MM, and I've got both Chrome and stock browser active, so I don't know why it says that)

    Suggestions
    -Colored tabs: it's a feature I absolutely love from Chrome, and I would like to see it out there
    -Customizable order in both link dialogs and image dialogs
    -Customizable menu
    -Multiwindow on LG ROMS pleeease

    Also, can I contribute to translations?

    I can look into the swipe tabs when I have time. Sync history doesn't work, I will fix in near future. Colored tabs - ugh I absolutely hate this feature but I guess some people like it so I will implement if more than 1 person wants it. Do not register as someone else just to say you want it lol!

    What do you mean by multi window? You mean resizeable windowed tabs? If so then you might be in for a surprise in upcoming releases.

    You can customize the order already by longpressing (the popup also says so).
    Reflow text wont work properly on 4+, i already reported the same issue.
    Whats the pro of coloured tabs?

    What leechseed said.

    Sorry about disappearing, I'm back at work so won't be able to update as frequently but I will try my best to bring weekly updates. This version fixes alot of bugs and might introduce some new ones so apologies in advance.

    Tablet mode with chrome style tabs at top. Reordering is broken and I'm working on auto resizing tab width like desktop chrome, right now width is fixed. I am thinking about adding an exit button in tablet mode at the far right, would that be useful?

    minor cosmetic item on display setting:
    Resize Window dynamically overwrites description. It is fine on my tablet so guessing its a space problem.
    A problem I have is when trying to zoom the screen I often bring up the link popup menu maybe a longer delay on popup, of course it could just be me.

    What device do you have and whats your resolution? I've reduced the sensitivity of the link popup menu but it might not be enough, I'm looking into it.

    Just found a bug (maybe).
    When a link on a page wants to open a new tab Speed ignores this and opens the link in the same tab.
    It appears to be caused by the Block Popup Window setting, I think this used to work correctly even when the setting was checked, but now I'm not sure.

    Blocking popup windows will literally prevent a site from opening windows which means it'll be forced to open them in the current tab. By default if you leave it off the adblocker will filter new windows and only show them if they arent ads, I would recommend leaving the "block popup windows" option off and add urls to the adblocker so it can do its job, and you can let sites open windows normally.

    But the reason I ask is on my tablet in landscape mode which is how I use it, to get the back button I have to swipe to get the tab drawer open and then pres hold back button or just close tab. But it's all good! Thanks!

    Ahhh, okay that makes sense, in which case I have good news! As soon as I'm done with the cards layout I'll be working on tablet support with tabs at the top, I realise I've been neglecting tablet users so hopefully that should make it up to you guys.

    I saw it, gave it a review :)
    If possible please make it so that Firefox html bookmarks can be imported.

    Thanks for the review! It really makes me happy to see people enjoy using Speed. Do you have an example html document I could look at to figure out how to best parse it?

    Password & form data wont be saved. Just noticed as i recommend your browser to another person. I didnt use it with cookies and saving stuff, but now i tested and i also doesnt save the data.

    Sadly android has removed password saving from kitkat onwards and only remembers usernames for some sites, I'm planning to look into this and find a secure workaround (with encryption) but it looks like it wont be an easy task so its not a garauntee, sorry about that.

    Again not at all opening on Android 4.2.2 JB with the latest version 5.6.6. Crashing every time while opening.

    please please please post a crashlog (Storage/SpeedBrowser/crashlog.txt). Otherwise I'll be looking for a need in a haystack!

    i've just revived my old tablet running android 4.1.1. and would love to have this browser on it if possible... if not - no problem...

    I've lowered the minsdk to API 16 in this release but there will probably be bugs. If you come across any please let me know (and post a crashlog).

    Bugfix release with cosmetic changes. More cards layout improvements and option to open video in external player from intercept menu. MinSDK now API 16 but please be aware I havent tested it properly.
