Flyperlink Brings Floating Web Browsing to Your Android Device

Flyperlink, an app available for download on Google Play, brings Chat Head-like web browsing straight to your phone. When skimming through links on your device, whether it be on Twitter or through Google Now, Flyperlink can pop up these webpages in individual bubbles, viewable and moveable for your convenience.

After initial setup, Flyperlink runs in the background until you click on a web link. At that point, you will decide which app you want to open a link with – Chrome, Flyperlink, or any other browser you may have installed. If Flyperlink is selected, you can then choose to open the link with Flyperlink just once, or always. When Flyperlink chosen, a bubble will appear that you can expand and minimize, and the bubble can be moved to wherever you would like, in case it is getting in your way. When you are done with a website, simply drag the bubble to the trash icon at the bottom of your screen. (more…)

Brave Browser App Looks to Block Intrusive Ads, Replaces With Clean Ads to Help Content Creators

A new Internet browsing application is about to the hit the streets, called Brave, aimed at combating intrusive ads that slow down your mobile browsing experience. If you have ever been the victim of slow load speeds on websites, it’s most likely that ads are the culprit. With Brave, ads that slow your load speed will be replaced by ads that are “clean,” meaning that the site owners will still get paid, but your browsing experience won’t be greatly hindered.

When you first load up a webpage, a site using ad technology that tracks you can place cookies and other miscellaneous content onto your browser, which in turn, allows an ad to show things relative to what you have been looking at online. For example, if you browse Amazon, then head to another website, you might see an ad for whatever it was you were looking for on Amazon. This is nothing new, but for anyone not looking to be tracked constantly on the web, Brave wants to solve this problem, while also not hurting content creators. (more…)
