Browsing the internet is one of the key features of a smartphone and from the basic browser of Nokia to the latest Google Chrome browser on Android, there have been improvements in the way a user browses the internet on his/her smartphone. Android smartphones usually come with decent web browsers, however, you can download alternatives from the Play Store if you are not satisfied. After Dolphin Browser and Google Chrome, a new browser has arrived for the Android OS which claims to be the lightest and fastest browser on Android. Lightning Browser is more powerful than most alternative web browsers available for the Android OS, specially with its size which is only 0.2 MB. The browser features an impressive user interface along with some decent features and works lightning fast.
Firstly, it features a simple, yet attractive, Holo Theme which is quite popular on a number of Android apps. The browser supports almost all Android versions from 2.2 to the latest 4.2 Jelly Bean. The browser features tabbed browsing, which is getting quite popular on Android as users want the experience similar to their PCs and laptops.
Lightning browser also supports flash, unlike many other browsers which are brilliant but lack flash. As the app is very lightweight, it takes minimum power and memory use while giving users a fast and smooth browsing experience.
The browser is designed for people who don’t want the heaviness and slowness of Chrome and Firefox. The developer claims that the browser has better benchmark results on Android devices than Chrome, which is because of the browser being extremely light and fast. Currently, lightning browser works best on Android tablets, however, it is still usable of on Android smartphones. The app will support smartphone resolutions in the future. The browser also supports additional shortcuts such as long pressing a tab to close it or long pressing the back button in order to close the browser. You can download the app using this link.
