Not sure what happened to my review.. but anyway. Devs stated the random connection loss was fixed in this release. But it still continues to occur just as frequently as before. Only thing I've not encountered is the random freezes since this update(so thank you for that) Too long to rewrite my review. Short version, puffin used to be my most absolute favorite browser. But for a long time now, it's been problematic. I cannot write pages or posts with it because it constantly loses connection and reloads the page, losing everything I've written. (My connection is stable) Emailed support, they said they did something to address it. No different sadly. I'm very disappointed in Puffin. I cannot say it's a browser I can use that is reliable anymore. Not to mention it took away features in some past updates and never did add them back. Like the ability to manually bring a game pad on screen. Now it's limited to just flash. There were some uses with manually bringing it up for certain pages. Watching anything media related on Puffin is a chore because of the frequent page reloads and losing your progress. Surprisingly downloading a file has no issue. I miss the old Puffin...

This is really worth your money, this version of puffin has no ads, faster service, easier controls, and so much more! I don’t regret spending my money on it, because it’s worth the price! Now, my opinion about people using this as their main browser: No, don’t depend on this as your main browser! Puffin was mainly released to be able to have the same games and formats as a computer. It was made for looking at things you can only access on the computer/laptop. But now that they released it to have an option between a computers options and a phones options, everyone is choosing phones. Guys, you need internet for this to work, that’s why your getting all kinds of bugs! I get that it’s faster, but these people are writing reviews like “I’m cursing at my iPad bc it’s not as fast as puffin”. Like seriously? Your that dependent on puffin? I only use puffin to play pc games that I can’t play on my phone, like Animal Jam. Welp that’s all I had to say bye🤝

Understand that this is an EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATION and probably shouldn't replace your default browser. You need a DECENT INTERNET CONNECTION TO STREAM CONTENT. People are getting errors I've never heard of, probably due to poor networking. My only complaint is the random reloading when pages are idle (or seem idle, and when they reload you loose what you were typing). Anyway great app for those who understand it. Old Review: "Puffin can be put back together again" As of version 5.1.1, I can say you guys have done the correct thing this time. Performance is MUCH faster, in fact, FINALLY FASTER THAN PUFFIN 4.X. The new mouse pointer is amazingly sleek and works well when you get used to it. Network cutouts are rare for me now. And you thankfully removed the "bottom bar experiment" (which took up craploads of space) so it's practical to use. Thanks for the positive update. I can finally make this my primary browser again.

It has been extremely excellent to work with such a stellar app from a stellar visionary that this company brings, where so few dared to. By the hand of the need did such a calling came forth and gave iOS a new breath towards holding on a promise of more then just mobile but a true competitor or dare to say possibly a replacement for most use case scenarios as laptop replacement. This browser along with a few other management apps did deliver that promise even if short lived. I thank each and every curator, coder, planer, and technician for developing and maintaining such a feat albeit adjacent to such as Apple the tech giant. Hear, hear to the future of all your endeavors be as successful and codified continually. Thanks again for all those whom worked over the years from your endearing effervescence, Will.

For about 6 days now, everytime I tap something on Newsfeed, I did a white box that says "True" in black font on the top line, the next line says, "Stay on this page" in blue font and the last line says, "Leave this page" in blue font. You have to tap "stay on this page" to move on and seto e if you received the item you tapped on, when you tap on Home to get back on Newsfeed the box comes back and you have tap "Stay on this page" gain. The back arrow is not working with this new box that is coming up. Instead of just tapping (or clicking) twice to get a job done, you have to tap or click four times, which is ready slowing things up. It is doing this on my Ipad, mini Ipad, and Iphone 6s+. Please fix this.
