Reviews From google play store

Edit: Well, almost perfect. Why isn't the page heading passed to sharing applications? It's a PitA to have to copy/paste manually. Brilliant! Granted I've only been using it for two days so far, but everything I've thrown at it has rendered perfectly, quickly, and most importantly bereft of tracking and advertising. After years with Dolphin, I've now finally found a worthy successor - and I'll be advising all of my customers, friends and colleagues to make the move to Brave too.

I've used Brave for years, and it's been my all the favourite across the board. Fast, secure, nice UI etc. But recently they've started displaying really intrusive pop-up ads, from my areas of interest. As soon as I start concentrateing on an article, then BAM, a notification advertising dodgy VPN or Crypto ponzy scheme. Surly this is the opposite of what Brave stands for? Ultimately, like every other app which became successful, they've sold their souls for ads.

I jumped on the ship as soon as I learned there's a browser with a built-in adblocker. Thanks to bookmark import and sync, it's easy to switch from Chrome, and both apps don't feel that different to use. Sadly, I still can't recommend using Brave as a default browser. It seems to freeze a lot while performing basic activities, like bookmarking pages or scrolling. Some websites are also slower to load than on Chrome. Still, I'm rooting for Brave and hope to use it more in the future.

It's getting worse by each updates, to be honest. I don't really know how they just leave the bug sit there for a long time. That green line flickering below when you're watching a video from youtube, or some websites, it just showed up after the previous 2 updates. More and more ads and pop-ups are also not getting blocked even the shield is ON. What the F is happening to this browser? Now I'm back to my old version Chrome, it's better to watch anime there than this.

Behaves as expected... I mean, it's a web browser that blocks ads...and that's really it. That's all I need, so it works for me! Not sure if it is just me, but I am experiencing a small bug. When I close all tabs and open a new tab (using either the + at the bottom of the screen or the New Tab menu item), 2 tabs are opened instead of 1. This doesn't seem to affect performance or anything; it's just a small annoyance.

Bravo is brilliant at what it does. But doesn't stop you tube from pausing your music every 20 minutes. I have found that if you dont sign in this doesn't happen as much. Or just use Vidmate. Plus vidmate lets you download of YouTube. 2nd issue I have found is browsing history will not delete all. You have to manually delete everything.

Love how quick Brave is! Never realised how bad these ads were slowing down my computer and phone. I'm a little disappointed with how YouTube functions on it now, hopefully they can restore it in a future update. Also it seems like ads are returning to YT, so long as they don't slow down my experience that's fine. Lastly, I'm not entirely sure how BAT works, how you get started and signed up, but it would be nice to see them put up a tutorial on how to get started.

Good so far. Very similar to the Chrome app which is fantastic because it's a very fluid UI. Seems just as fast as any good browser should be. Love the built in privacy features and secure sync to other devices. An improvement would be to let me reorganize items in my bookmark folders. Also, with Chrome I'd be able to click on a YouTube video and have it open in the YouTube app. I don't know if that's possible in Brave. I'd like that to be an optional feature or just have somebody tell me how.

Blocks the ads. Job #1 success! I am going to say this one last time: Let me return to the video I was just looking at accidentally advanced away from. OR I will methodically work against whatever intentions you have. For instance, that is how I deal with intrusive ads: Whatever it is, they lose the sale. Just let me return to where I was. I will sometimes realize that I cannot return to, say, the 3rd video down from the video I just advanced away from. Your system makes difficult.

This was browser is almost perfect. It is fast, simple to use, has a nice ui design and has many useful privacy settings that are easy to enable / disable which is great because the privacy shields and ad blocker sometimes break websites so being able to disable / enable them easily is very important. The only important feature that this browser didn't have was a dark theme but it was added in a recent update. Right now it is the best browser for android.

I always felt more comfortable with the Chrome interface than any other browser, and that led me to keep using it. This feels just as responsive, if not more so, and feels extremely similar to use. I'd even say its better. For example, using YouTube in the browser actually feels like a good experience. Brave has dark mode setting too. On top of this, I get built in adblock, with Brave Rewards for optional privacy respecting ads, and a private window that uses Tor by default. Great app

Hi there , After update when I try closing all tabs and open a new tab it keeps opening 2 tabs at the same time so I had to downgrade to version 1.4.3 and my problem resolved itself . I'm running on Android 10 on Pixel 2 . What's the issue causing this problem ? I will be happy if you could solve this on the coming update .

I love Brave browser. Since I switched over about 4 months ago almost 500k ads blocked. Completely changed my browsing experience. Recent updates are awesome also, the search button on the bottom take a while to get used to but it is so much more convenient and easy to use with one hand on a large android screen. I am so excited to start earning BAT and keep utilizing the ecosystem. Thank you for pushing adoption and for a great product.

Strange how this browser is blazing fast for everything except Brave Rewards. It's always lagging. This is the 3rd free claim button that doesn't work. I've missed out on 3 free rewards. Fix that silly "Claim" button and give me my rewards. So annoying. I'm 0/3. The button literally NEVER works. Galaxy S10+/S8

I recommend for secure browsing on pc. It makes using tor a lot easier and available for a wide audience. Plus that it's recommended for torrent sites and anime sites of course. You can get on doors that first party devs block, so it makes things better. Honest review: it's fast, you can't tell the difference from chrome; you're not a product: adblock extensions don't always work on other browsers because they're not really integrated and sites find ways to detect and block you.

Compared to other browsers in matters of speed and data efficiency Brave browser isn't the best one, it's wireless data consumption is a bit alarming, and always being flagged by my AV software of the huge amount of background data usage.... and the lack of synchronization mobile/PC and the possibility of making a donation of your earning to charity and other open source/community project isn't really helping. Other than that it's a browser in a mobile phone....

I have loved this browser up until recently. Ever since I installed the latest update its been freezing up and moving at a snail's pace. Not happy. Okay, it's been a couple of days & I can't take it anymore. I've got to uninstall unless someone can tell me how to undo the latest update. Hint: updates aren't always improvements!

Browser is very good as compared to other prominent browsers out there like Chrome, Firefox but i have few issues with this browser. First, its not very good at running in background, like the minute you switch to other apps like google pay or Amazon pay to make payment it closes the opened tab and get back to the new tab page. Second, Brave sync is the worst I've seen in any browser. Its confusing, its slow and its limited to only bookmarks and passwords. Sync should be like firefox or chrome.

Needs an 'always private browsing' mode. Otherwise, pretty great. Brave Rewards is an interesting monetization model that more companies should adopt. There is no innovation in the advertising space, so it's refreshing to see. Basically the only browser that blocks ads in 2019; most require plugins (and most plugins are useless on mobile). Works just fine with NordVPN, and still loads site elements like videos even with adblock running. The splash page could use more widget options on PC.

Used to be great. However, a few days ago, websites I normally visit daily are asking me to prove I'm not a robot. One specified that Java Script is prevented from running... Having to enter a code or clicking on countless pics with cars, boats and others is annoying! I'll have to find another if this doesn't change after today's update...

This was a 5 star review, however the most recent update either broke or removed a few things that I used daily. - YouTube videos no longer fit the screen correctly when viewed in "fullscreen" mode (Galaxy S10+): 1/3 of the video (lower portion) is no longer visible when watching fullscreen. - When watching YouTube videos, the option to skip ahead or rewind 10 seconds by double tapping the corresponding side, is no longer available: I now have to use the small seek bar to rewind/skip forward.

It's the most functional privacy based browser I've used and has a lot of design choices better than normal mobile browsers like Chrome and Firefox. But, it seems to use battery a lot in the background and my phone send me notifications that say it crashes in the background sometimes, so might be worth holding off until the technical aspects of the app are a little more polished and ironed out down the road

Update 16 Nov. 19 - It has been a while since my last update and the app has gotten a lot more stable since. However, there are still issues and feature limitations in the Android version, most notably being the lack of the ability to sync brave reward BAT with the desktop version. Also, the lack of addon support makes it interior to Firefox as I would normally rely on adblock plugins to block ads instead of the built in adblocker which is not configurable and is not as effective in blocking ads

1st COMMENT(Worst update ever) 2nd COMMENT. - "in previous updates i was able to fast forward the video, but now i can not, whenever i try to do so it goes for next video". I don't know it is only with me or everyone is having this problem, but i have gone through the settings but I did not find anything which should have been helpful. Only best feature is AD BLOCKING, THAT THE ONLY REASON I HAVE IT

My best experience with a phone browser by far. I love that I can play YouTube videos without ads and continue listening to it while using different apps. It's a super fast browser even when burdened with the ridiculous amount of tabs I currently have open (I love the cute smiley in place of +99). Had no problems using phone party games like JackBox after I worked out to enable fingerprint tracking for playing. My only grievance was the lack of a dark theme but I think one has just been added!

Do not believe the hype. This browser is still in beta. There is still no option to export your BAT wallet on mobile so if you uninstall the browser, you lose all access to your earned BAT. Can't import data from Chrome, Android password manager doesn't auto-fill in this browser, no server sync (only to another device). It's all or nothing and although this browser runs on chromium and blocks ads and trackers, it's still missing crucial features and needs to correct their advertising.

I found a huge increase is speed after I started using a Vault for my passwords and removing them from Brave. So Brave acts now like when I first started using it. It is fast, and I prefer desktop layout of pages and I don't know of another app that does desktop so well. I just wish 7" Pixel XL phones come out to see more of the browser.

Thanks. This is my favorite browser now. It would be better if you add extension support. You can make it a hidden feature to prevent noob users. And can you add a "homepage" with bookmarks there so it would be easier to access bookmarks or if theres any I didnt see it you can tell me. Btw ur adblockers keep on getting "blocked" and detected so I turn them off. Kiwi browsr has extension supp so I use ublock origin there. Or you can add settings for your adblock comparable to ublock origins.

Mobile BAT is useless, locked up, you can't move it, period. I can't do anything with the BAT on my mobile browser but tip it away. There is no sync with Uphold, entirely disappointing as the desktop browser does sync. Until this problem is fixed I half expect my phone to get lost and lose all the BAT on this browser as there is no backup either! Other than this near sham of getting paid to browse, the browser is functionally wonderful.

It is the best browser for blocking ads and playing videos in lock mode. But recently I have found that it is not blocking the YouTube's front page ad. These are third party ads like Netflix promotions. I hope the issue will be resolved soon.

Really good browser but it's let down by what we probably consider basic functionality. Bookmark and tab syncing across devices is an absolute must for a browser regardless of how 'safe' it is. Update - extra star. bookmark sync seems to be much more stable than it has been previously. Sort the tab sync out and this is a full time alternative

Hate the newest update. I like that they added a dark mode and the option to add expections for things like cookies but, it no longer blocks ads like it used to before. Thats the whole point of the browser! Every webpage I visit shows ads when it didn't do this before. It seems the devs have moved from blocking ads to now forcing them on you. Disappointing and I'm downgrading to the previous version.

Accidentally disabled "touch to search" and there's no option to re-enable it.(might have to reinstall...) And can you change it so that the navigation bar hides itself when playing video? That's one major thing I despise about the new chrome updates. It's entirely unnecessary and incredibly annoying. Should be an easy fix too!

Does not let me create a wallet. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. Went into the brave rewards settings and hit reset Brave rewards, I get an error which restarts the browser and it still doesn't work. When I hit create wallet it says try again later after loading for 10 seconds. Edit: Updated to 5 stars as everything now appears to be functioning properly. Great browser, fast and with ad blocking built in.

Good effort. 1st, when you minimize it's stops playing live streams (even audio only ones) and it does that when you add a page too. 2nd, bookmarks on the first page for easier access. 3rd, a bit (just a notch) stricter adblock and cookies block. Thank you. Keep up the good work.

was excited about this, but as time goes I am less and less excited. +1 for based on Chromium, but the bookmarks sync seems problematic at best. It's a hog on android, very slow. Desktop seems fine. Not a fan of the ad's though. Rewards seems really scammy to me.

The browser is pretty fast and solid on Android. but the major features missing are better search engine customization, password sync, non custodial wallet for bat / erc-20 token support, and fdroid support. Using uphold and google play goes completely against the privacy principles of the project. Update : back to 4 stars, Chromecast crash issue resolved,

Why this browser is so slow. I have compared this one with many other browsers and every time I found it slow than others.when new update releases I install it and every time get dissapointed by this. I really want to use it but it is too irritating.there is no particular site that is experiencing long it load every site slow. Make it quick responsive.i don't want to have a slow browser whether it block ads or note.if it block ads than this should be fast.

Since the Oct.30 update I have problems when live streaming. The picture is frozen and when you touch the screen it advances like browsing photos instead of a video. If you rub the screen it will look like a sloppy video. I cannot use this browser for live streams. This was not happening before the update.

If you are the type that values your privacy when surfing the web, then Brave browser is the right browser for you. The good thing is that you are rewarded by your time and effort when surfing the internet with brave browser. This is indeed my best and default browser.

Its good and i am using it for long time. And they added dark theme too...but it seems its kinda broken coz pages appear white. Just the home page is black. Pages are not loading properly now. This is unexpected. This was not happening before. Please fix this.

Edit- I regularly download the latest version. My current version is also the latest one. Old review-Laggy as hell. Used to be my favourite browser, but now it has become an ordinary browser. My biggest concern is that it takes 4-5 seconds to open(after touching its icon). Please rectify this issue

May function ok with pages but I haven't been able to figure out a way to pin sites to the home screen for quick access. Requires two taps it seems to get to bookmarks. Will check back in later but will stick with Firefox for now.

The problem I was previously experiencing has now been resolved. This is an amazing browser with great potential to ensure a more private internet. It comes with a fairly decent adblocker and BAT is a great idea if aged correctly. This is a great browser and people need to start using it.

I use brave private mode mostly. Fast and free add blocker. Although I'm a little bit annoyed about whenever I click a website from the search bar option, it will redirect me to adds whatever. But, if I use duckduckgo to search and then go to the website from there, there will be no redirecting issue. I hope this new update is better.

Amazing step towards a better online ad-industry delivered in a fast and functional browser. Brave Shields makes it easy to toggle trackers, scripts, and other security tools. Brave Rewards, Ads and BAT has finally matured to a point of becoming an almost self-sustaining ecosystem and a much better user experience than traditional ad models.

Totally unusable!! No option to import bookmarks during tour or from the Bookmarks menu item... and brave://settings/ doesn't work as its treated like a search term... Totally unusable if i can't import. Your support pages only show desktop videos by the way, couldn't find a single picture or video of the android mobile version. :(

Privacy is very important to me and I love this about brave. The inbuilt ad blocker, tor for private browsing and the ability to choose a default search engine are some very well thought features. I hope we see some more privacy preserving features soon.

What the hell is going on old version of brave is excellent but now with every update it gets worse & worse more ads each and everytime are pop up now with the shield is on and speed of this browser getting slow now ... As you told it's a private fast browser it blocks ads but now you're making fool of your users it's better you fix these issues otherwise you soon gonna lose alot of users..

Best browser until.. 👍😊 full screen automatically not rotating SCREEN for other sites except youtube and navigaton button also not going away. Please fix it ASAP. Bookmark can be added into address bar and bottom bookmark icon should be used for access already bookmarked pages. THANKS 😊 with new update YouTube video not going backwards and backwards. Plz fix it.

Good for browsing but heavy, need to add option for user to report ads that haven't been block by brave. I also use Brave on my computer but it seems it can't sync the brave rewards on the same wallet, how user can sync the rewards?It will stay 2 stars because it still doesn't change the ability to keep the opening tabs if user close the browser!It stay open if we hide the app/when we switch to other app/ keep the opening tabs although we have close the browser.

I've used Brave and BAT token from the beginning. Browse fast and safe, earn some $ watching an ad or two and tip $ to your friends on Twitter, blogs, other content. Or, you can continue to let the powers that be censor content, track you and force ads upon you, and drain all your money for their crooked agendas.

No longer does double tapping on one side of the video skip or reverse 10 secs since your last lot of 'improvements'. Also, not signing up for another ducking account to give feedback on your site... 3 star remains until fixed! Version: Brave for Android 1.5.0, Chromium 78

1) Whenever I click on the plus sign to create a new tab, it creates two tabs. Also when I try to create incognito tab, a regular tab is created along with the incognito one. 2) Brave CRASHES if you try to create an incognito tab (condition: there should not be a normal window opened at the time).

Requires a lot of intrusive permissions. Which is expected given the developer (the bigot who got basically ousted from Mozilla for being scummy). Not what they claim it is. Doesn't protect your privacy. Appears that it is merely trying to direct it through their servers so they can be the ones who data-mine your info. They also just want a bigger piece of the advertising revenue pie, which is why they have also inhoused how that works and how it interacts with the data they collect from you.

This is the best browser hands down. Block all trackers, speeding up browser load times, built in add blocker with the option to get paid to allow adds. In simpler terms, Your browser history could be paying your Netflix bill. This is the best. No contest.

There needs to be an option to erase all data when the app is closed like the desktop browser has. Or a timed deletion. Or to always open a private tab. DuckDuckGo is still the only browser that does this and is why I still can't make the switch to something else.

Several items do not work on many pages. For example the menu and the + on coldwatercreek. When does work like it much better than chrome and use it for browsing now that chrome broke the search bar!!! In march. But still have to go back to chrome for interactive on many pages as cited above

This browser should be the basic browser for Android OS - finally someone made a web tool that not only rewards the use and has a profitable excuse for ad monetization - but benefits the user for once! It's private, easy to use, and does what it promises from the very beginning to the very end, it updates to not only good, but much better - every time! 5 stars is far to little of a reward that these developers earn - and if this user can only give them that, then I do!

I missed the following features: 👉🏼 New private tab with TOR. 👉🏼 Encrypted cloud sync of bookmarks and passwords. 👉🏼 Password Import. 👉🏼 Bookmarks export and import. 👉🏼 Minimalistic personalized news feed. 👉🏼 Access of Bookmarks from toolbar (replacing create bookmark icon to Star in flow menu similar to Chrome) 👉🏼 Periodically clear browsing data options similar to DuckduckGo.

Great privacy focused browser. One feature to add is registering it in the share menu. Whenever I have a link, I want to share and open it in brave browser, I can't find brave browser in the share menu. All other browsers appear in the list though.

Will the frequent and seemingly random crashes ever be addressed? It was great until that started happening. Since the last several updates, it's also started slowing down for no apparent reason. I've really enjoyed this browser but at present it's unusable.

After the new update, I can't double tab to skip when watchimg YouTube. And when I press to view the video on full screen. There are some details that go missing from the video. Please look into this. Thanks.

It works well for most things. Using OAuth is a bit of an issue due to the blocking of third party cookies. I wish exemptions could be created on a per-session basis (maybe force a short enough expiration to allow the handshake to take place).

rateing changed ... They resolved the issue ..🤗🤗😍 Browser is too awesome control the adds an all .. but when time come for rewards and all that take soo much time to claim .. and till now 4 time i try claim rewards but its not claiming at all .. seriously this irritating. . can you see this .. developer of brave browser .. .

Seeing ads now. Turns on rewards to watch ads without permission in latest update. I had explicitly turned it off. And now you have it dig through setting to find out how to turn off ads again. Disable rewards and disable ad when rewards is off.

There is a bug about close all tabs feature. When I close all tabs and then open a new tab it opens 2 new tabs. Also the long pressing feature is not useful. If we want to open new normal tab we already can with click. That's why, the long pressing feature should be for only private tab.

It's FAST, the claims of 6x faster sound a little silly but upon first use it may just be legit. Smoking through Adidas site pages and pictures load much faster. Will need to see the privacy policy and the security config before full adoption but at first glance... Impressive work on this browser!!!

The browser has a very cool interface, and it is fast (I was surprised). The the fact that it respects you by giving you the options of viewing ads or not, great app! You should try it out.

I just now installed it, never used it but with all the reviews saying it's got pop up ads I'm uninstalling. Why bother, I'll stick to Chrome. I use Lookout for security (premium) and their private VPN extension. Absolutely love them..

Just wondering what happened to tapping twice during a YouTube video to rewind or fast forward a video, that was a HUGE feature I used! And still waiting for them to wise up and put option for address bar on bottom for true one handed use, other than that, browser has been good.

Great browser with lightning speed. Best in the world. Can't live without brave. Forget about annoying ads and trackers. Most used phone application. Continue with best updates. Thank you brave team. Loved it...

Its amazing in the beginning but after a while ads start showing up on their on though the ad blocker is on. You have to switch it off and on and restart the browser to block ads. Still there's one suspicious ad that keeps opening and redirecting a new tab.

Really cool how it tracks what it blocks and the such. Rewarding to see. Very fast browser with many many additional options such as separate search engines. Now that the dark theme is finally out (YEET) there is no reason to use anything other than brave. Thanks developers.

Two stars will go to five with these changes: 1) Accessing bookmarks through settings menu - clunky, too many clicks. Need a button on toolbar or gesture. 2) Need ability to reorder bookmarks in folders. Fix that and it's 5 stars.

Good idea in principle but requires a lot of work. Bookmarks dont sync properly, often duplicates rather than update. App often crash or becomes unresponsive. Poor data storage - user data goes to 1.5GB in a day. Will try again in future but for now, back to Firefox.

Great app I'm having only one BIG issue : Why I'm not able to change download folder? And why app is not asking for the download location on save? I'm on oneplus7 pro, Oxygen 10 Current path for downloads: Android/data/com.brave.browser/files/downloads It's VERY annoying

Absolute garbage browser, do not download. It randomly closes out of everything for no reason and there goes everything you had open. That is just unacceptable, please fix this app as it was nice prior to it being so unstable now.

I've been using brave for a long time now and it's phenomenal. It's quick, fast and doesn't slow down my phone like other browsers and there are no ads! This is what browsing experience should be like.

I like the actualization over videos, but please don't eliminate the option to forward or step back some seconds in a video with a double tap at left or right. It's a useful tool.

Please add a feature for 'screan shot' and 'scroll' so that users can take a shot for full web pages. These are some important tools a browser must provide to its users because they have to install separate apps for these tools.

Really enjoyed the app until recently. They changed the tab page into a simple list with no thumbnails, very hard to sort through. Huge step backwards in my opinion, might switch browsers it bugs me so much.

Working fine on my galaxy s8. Crashing and closing at random times on my Galaxy note 9.... Even after latest update... Edit, new update: Same problem still occurs.. Edit: New update: not sure what's changed behind the scenes but no more crashing! Great work!!

Watching youtube videos in landscape mode does not fit to screen. I am using huawei mate 10 pro. I am using latest version 1.5.1. But i think its something to do with YouTube. Because i downloaded other browsers and its the same.

There are many isssues like more control of speed dial on home screen and switch to removel of information like Https upgrades ,ad blocking, and estimated time save from Home screen.Also wallet sync option should be there between desktop and mobile.Multiple tabs are also not easily manageble

When will brave be able to sync passwords? It's the only thing that's prevented me from making the change and probably all other users. There's no excuse for not providing this update. You've had plenty of time and have been hearing complaints about this since the beginning.

Phenomenal browser!! Replaced it with Google while ago as I got sick of their intrusive and backwards AD system aswell as the data they hold on you. Brave gives me complete freedom to browse the web the way I want to do so.

This is a very fast browser. The only thing I hate is, when I type a web address in the bar, instead of going there, it searches it in the search engine. I'm 100% sure I typed it correctly. This is really annoying.

Works great. No ads unless I decide to get them. Great privacy. Will use on computer also. If there's a beta program I'll ask to join. Let us decide who gets our information. Thanks 5 stars since I started using the app.

Awesome experience. I do not have any problems about it. And all the ads and pop ups were blocked by this browser. Gonna recommend this to my and your friends.

All of a sudden, when I visit any page and click on a word, a google something pops up at the bottom of the browser and is trying to translate the word. How to disable this unwanted feature, please?

Been using brave for 2 weeks now synced on all my device, ive enabled ads, verified my upload wallet still no single ads. Or may be the ads are restricted in some location. Aside the ads issue, the speed is superb conpared to all browser ive used.

I can't really use a browser without syncing more than bookmarks. I want to sync at least passwords and history across devices. I really enjoyed it until I discovered that nothing got synced from my mail device.

I really love this browser, I use it a lot and it works great. My only issue is that I've gotten 0 BAT, I've clicked good number of the ads and have a zero balance.

Been using this app for a while now and I must say it really comes handy when it comes to ads blocking and allows users to gift their favorite authors BAT token, something not yet available on other browsers, kudos to the team behind brave browser 👍

After November 2019 update, YouTube videos don't have quick 10 seconds forward/backward skip options. Update should bring new features but here it's actually downgrading the application. Disappointed with the updated version.

Trying out the browser, all seem ok so-far. One small problem though when placing a site into my start/home page some show up, some do not...Well found the sites on my android home page, not the browser start/home page. Will keep trying to get it right.

The app is simply amazing however it would be better with some extra important features like an integration with download management apps like / adm/ and an option to save pages as pdf.... Thx in advance.. And keep the hard work.. You are awesome 😉

I have brought this down to 3 stars because recently it fails to do what it always claimed it would. Ad free browsing! Hope that this gets fixed soon because using this app has always been awesome!

Great app with a great team running it. They're very receptive to feedback. I've criticized one of their UI choices in a recent release and they've immediately fixed in the next release
