Puffin Web Browser user reviews:
I am using this browser first time, and it loading speed is too much faster than all other browsers I have used till now. It’s give me shock to see it’s speed.
This app is VERY promising, but it’s slow, clunky and jumps around the screen. Also needs to be better cursor place selection. The little arrow button that moves the cursor is needed. But I LOVE that you can use the full site of web pages and not mobile sites! I also love that it lets you copy already posted text! Keep up the good work, and I look forward to your updates.
I only downloaded this to show my deep appreciation for actually stating this app did not work with flash!! This is what I’m looking for and many claim it works, and it probly does on certain phones. Not mine. Then again it could be like most media players claiming comparability with this or that without success…I’m sincerely grateful this stated as it did. This alone would inspire me to purchase. Already have a good non flash browser though.Samsung vitality. Works otherwise.
Very very fast. I love the mouse and the keyboard icons You can call then up or minimize them. Mouse is unique. Good stuff can only get better.
It blows the other fish out the water with its speed even on flash heavy sites. Just need a couple of things like and exit button and better zoom feature. Great job other than that.
It’s a good app. I must to have, cos before I couldn’t see flash videos. Awesome!
I have tested most browser out there and puffin is the king. Super fast, loads full flash content and even works in china. I wish i could buy this app to support the dev. Once you Puff you cant stop (that didnt rhyme i know)
