Javelin Browser Reviews

    From the indie developer who brought you Jerky Browser (now called Javelin Incognito, spoiling my quip about Slim Jims) comes Javelin Browser, a beautiful gesture-based browser. It comes loaded with ad-block, incognito mode, and reading mode, in an attempt to become the perfect browser for mobile users. So far, I'm pretty convinced.

    Great new web browser. It offers built in ad-blocking, a mobilizer view to display only text from websites (great for reading articles), incognito mode and for an additional fee you can use a proxy to unblock websites (e.g. circumvent local restrictions).

    First impressions are good and it uses the lightning browser source code. Very smooth and pretty. Not open source though which if a real banger in the mouth.

    The one and only browser that I've found that has ad blocking built into it. One of my favorite app to open links with from facebook and emails.

Javelin is a GORGEOUS Android browser focused on the MOBILE experience of surfing the web. ★ #1 mobile browser with BUILT-IN ADBLOCK
★ First Android browser with READING MODE (Similar to Readability/Pocket app)
★ TRUE-MULTITASKING with Javelin Stack

Just these first 3 features will be enough to sell a browser to Barack Obama. But that is just the icing on the delicious browser that Javelin is. Here are the other things Javelin is capable of:

● Quick navigation via touch gestures
● Translucent status bars and navigation bars (KitKat only)
● Intelligent bookmarks (Bookmarks are sorted based on frequency of use)
● Built-in Proxy Services (In-app subscription required)
● Incognito mode (Private browsing)
● App opens immediately (Fast start times)
● HOLO (because YOLO)

FAQ

● (Permission) Location access - Disabled by default. This is for websites that require your location (Think Google Maps, or Google Local Search). It can be enabled/disabled in settings.

● (Permission) Accounts - Used only 1 time. This is for contact purposes. Should the need arises, the developer (myself) needs to know which account to send an email to.

● (Permission) Billing - For in-app purchase, see the next point.

● (Permission) System Alert Window - For Javelin Stack

● (Permission) READ_PHONE_STATE - To close Javelin Stack when Stack Browsers are open

● (Permission) GET_TASKS - For the upcoming Javelin Stack blacklisting feature

● (In app Subscription) Including a 30 day trial, Javelin requires an in-app subscription to enable its built-in proxy service for censorship bypass.
