I have been following this browser for a long time and I totally agree with you regarding OH's improvements and progress. it's amazing what the developer has accomplished. For me, it lives up to the supposed top Android browsers, it even has more options than many of them.


Obviously there is still room for improvement, but I think this message is not the best time to talk about it.

Congratulations and to continue on this path.

To perform this action you must slide your finger on the address bar at the height where the web page is written. Understands?

Greetings.
Thanks but it would be more convenient if we can swipe from corners of screen।

in my case swiping from the edges of the screen would be a step back in gesture design for oh.

I mean, I use my phone with gesture navigation and it would be very easy to cause errors when you want to swipe.

In my case I am super comfortable with OH gestures. It was very easy for me to get used to them. I love them.

Ya, I once tested swipe screen edge gestures. It is worst experience for a browser. Websites may have horizontal scrolling elements (Example: https://mobile.mi.com/) When we try to scroll that element, the page will navigate. That will irritate us. I think that gesture is just a marketing stunt for a browser.

Surely yes. I totally agree with you. I once tried Yandex that has this feature and the truth was that the experience was very bad.

The way oh implements this function seems to me to be correct. All of Oh's gestures are excellent.

I was talking about of chrome browser's navigation or uc browser's । One more thing As KIWI BROWSER has now become open source can you add chrome extension support in this browser with the help of KIWI?

The kiwi browser, one of the features that I liked the most, was its perfect dark mode. Oh it makes it great, but pure black is definitely amazing.

Another feature that was strange but that browser had was push notifications. It really had no support, but entering the command in the address bar From Chrome notifications you could manually add web pages you wanted to receive notifications. It wasn't perfect, but it hurt to work well.

I clarify, I'm happy with Oh, I only mention this since they brought up the topic of taking kiwi characteristics.

Greetings.

Issue with https://searx.ninja - "rate limit exceeded"

HI @onehandyapps,
I've just found an issue and I'm not too sure if it's OH browser or the website https://searx.ninja. I wanted to use searx.ninja as my search engine but when I search using OH browser I immediately get a webpage saying "rate limit exceeded". This happens on my oneplus 7t pro, android 10.
If I use chrome on my phone the search website works as expected. I'm also using the searx.ninja search engine website from all my other laptops on my home wifi and they all work too.
I've tried using my phone on the home wifi and on 4G and get the same issue.

Could someone else try the search engine https://searx.ninja while using OH browser and see if they get the "rate limit exceeded" please?
(any search term will do, I've tried loads). That would help narrow down if its an issue with OH browser or the actual website.
Thanks!

Hi @onehandyapps, Thanks for trying the searx.ninja webiste. I spoke to the website admin and they've found a fix - issue was with brotli and Android webkit doesn't support brotli.

Could I ask for a feature to be able to set custom search engines please?
I think I asked 20-30 pages back and I can't remember if you said you we're going to try and implement it or not.
It'd be great if you could implement it as this would open us up to having lots of search engine options not just the ones listed in settings.

    Permissions & Privacy

    This is first and foremost. Permissions are closely related to our privacy. According to Android Documentation (developer.android.com/guide/topics/permissions/overview), there are two type of permission:

    Normal : Normal permissions cover areas where your app needs to access data or resources outside the app's sandbox, but where there's very little risk to the user's privacy or the operation of other apps.

    Dangerous : Dangerous permissions cover areas where the app wants data or resources that involve the user's private information, or could potentially affect the user's stored data or the operation of other apps.

    Dangerous Permissions in OH Browser: None
    (No Camera Permission, No Location Permission, No Storage Permission , No Contact Permission, No Identification Permission, etc). This app doesn't analyse your behavior, No Firebase analytics connected to this browser,
    So clearly most secure browser! Most respect to your privacy! Not just marketing!

    Short version of Privacy Policy: We do not collect any personally identifiable information from users (period).

    3) Up-to-date security & optimization even without upgrading OS by just updating the WebKit!

    OH is one stop shop, packed with almost all features, no extra add-ons needed! Some unique features are Dark Mode, Ad blocker, Intuitive Gestures, Save As Web Archive / PDF, Separate Private Tabs, Secure Screen, Multiple Search Engines Support.

    FAQ

    A: No, it is bug of MIUI, search "How to enable documents ui in MIUI", after you enable it, it will work fine.

    Ya, we love dark mode. I am always trying to improve it. Guys who travel with me from the beginning know that the dark mode is progressively improved. Also I heard that Google is working on in built dark mode for web pages using Android system webview. So it is bonus for us. But until then I like to improve it....

    Thank you guys! Have a great day!:good:
