Gello, the developed browser based on chromium / swe, directly from the CyanogenMod team is available for all 5.0+ devices. :D :D
Optimized for Qualcomm® Snapdragon™*- Pyrope works on other devices which don't have a Snapdragon™ chip (Web Refiner Module not included)
This app is based on chromium / swe and Cyanogemod, and it needs a proper build env to be compiled is like 40GB download and it takes a decent amount of time to download and compile. They don't make it that easy.

KNOWN BUG:
-Adblock work only with snapdragon device, I now stay work to version beta to fix it, the problem is in the chronium source update see the post #724http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=68515224&postcount=724
FROM CODE AURORA FORUM
WebRefiner libraries
1.The libraries listed in src/components/web_refiner/ (downloaded during the 'gclient sync' phase) are built on top of SWE based on Chromium version M42. Attempting to use these libraries in any other version of chromium will result in instability.
2.libswewebrefiner.so is built with dependency on libswe.so. If you are changing the chromium library name to something else in your project, then libswewebrefiner.so library loading will simply fail at runtime.
3.Libraries support ARM and ARM64 architecture only.

Hi,

I download an .apk with this link :
HTML:
https://maven.cyanogenmod.org/artifactory/gello_prebuilds/org/cyanogenmod/gello/

For me, it's by far the best browser i ever try. But I can't choose DuckDuckGo in search engine menu. However, I see it on an old video and on a screenshot. Is it normal ?

Very goog Browser ! Thanks !

Hi, I can't install it. It gives an error when is parsing the package.

I'm running 5.0.

thanks for feed, i search made it compatible with 5.0 devices!

Yeah I believe that Gello requires Android 6.x ie: CM13

download my gello its the last built, u can change in setting search engine... try set DuckDuckGo as home

The browser with the smoothest scrolling on my S6 on MM! Night mode is excellent and doesn't affect images.
Well done!

thanks for feed, im happy to listen it :fingers-crossed::good:

I try it but that doesn't fix my issue. In fact, my phone uses French languages. When I use English, I can choose DuckDuckGo. I look your sources codes, and in /res/values-fr-rFR/donotttranslate-search_engines.xml , I don't have DuckDuckGo :

Code:
<resources xmlns:xliff="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2">
  <string-array name="search_engines" translatable="false">
    <item>google</item>
    <item>yahoo_fr</item>
    <item>bing_fr_FR</item>
  </string-array>
</resources>

I am not sure it's the real problem because DuckDuckGo already appear in /res/values/donotttranslate-search_engines.xml

Code:
<resources xmlns:xliff="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2">
  <string-array name="search_engines" translatable="false">
    <item>google</item>
    <item>baidu</item>
    <item>yahoo</item>
    <item>bing</item>
    <item>DuckDuckGo</item>
  </string-array>
  <string name="default_search_engine_value">google</string>
</resources>

In spite of that, I adopt this browser.

A few points that I want to note:
-Where is the 'promised' integrated ad blocker? Was it just removed or will it be implemented in a future version
-Why does this browser needs to reload background tabs when accessing them? In this way opening many tabs in the background is almost completely useless, when you have to rely on the short amount of available mobile data
-Saving pages for offline reading is nice. However, I miss a swipe feature to change quickly between the different pages. Also there is no way to delete all of them at once?
-What is the actual impact of the energy mode? Any ideas?

Is there a way to get directly into touch with the developers? Is there a official board of CM and if yes, where do I find it?

-adblock will be added in the coming built but already you can find something in security and privacy
-you probably have some apps that you clean your cache
-there isn'tbut i can add it
-It restricts the use of CPU and RAM to devote to the browser as well as other
- U CAN FIND ALL ON :

Sry, didn't mean to be demanding. I think the browser is well done already, just wanted to express a few of my personal observations. Never intended to be offensive.

I read the OP, however, I am not a user of google+ so it's hard to get into touch with the devs over there

- Adblock would be great, I'm looking forward to this feature.
- I don't use any apps to clean the cache. So, is this behavior that background tabs are reloaded when accessing them supposed to be unnormal?
-Would be great if it could be added. Thank you!
- Alright, so I shouldn't open to many tabs in energy mode, right?

Thank you so far!

    Are there any plans to update the base chromium version of this browser?

    Thanks!


    https://review.lineageos.org/#/c/154784/
    I think cm/lineage is finally switching to their own fork of chromium which is more up to date (55.0.2883.105) so this should be good news for gello security.


    Agree adblocking is essential, I have exynos handset and lack of blocking is the one thing stopping me using this browser. Is there any beta testing I could do to help @Ninnix96 bring this browser to exynos with blocking enabled? I'd love to help where possible particularly as the one blocking browser adblock browser is resource intensive and sometimes crashes, pyrope is definitely the better browser.


    I have starting to a 55 version of pyrope, ad block for all and I hope Google sync for all!
