Review Flynx Browser

Brandon Girod
9.3Excellent
Allows pages to load in the background while you browse
No url bar to browse in-app
Flynx Browser (Beta) for Android is a new web browser with a really cool and unique way to open links and browse the web. The idea behind the browser is to allow a site to load in the background while the user is free to continue working on anything they want.
You don’t use this browser in the traditional sense. There is no way to open the browser and type in a URL to visit a website. Instead, you click on a link from another app like Facebook, Google+, Reddit, etc and it pops up in a bubble notification. Around the bubble is a loading bar that lets you know when the page has loaded, and since it sits on top of whatever you’re doing, you’ll be sure you won’t miss or forget about it.
The browser’s functionality is great and it works really well. The bubble notifications are just like Facebook Messenger’s notifications, so you can move them anywhere you want them to be.
Unfortunately, not being able to use it like a traditional browser is a bit of a downfall. That means I have to have another browser installed to use if I want to look up some quick information or browse a specific site that I don’t find on a social media network.
Flynx Browser is a really cool and unique experience. I really enjoy that it will load a page while I continue looking at whatever I’m reading, but I’m not a big fan of not being able to use it like a traditional browser.
