    This app does not have the look and feel of a modern web browser. Certainly not a serious replacement for Google Chrome. It is lacking in far too many features (shortcuts and more) to be a viable alternative. Useless toy? Or a bad practical joke? Try the Iridium browser and see if you understand what I mean!

    It's for mobile only, which means it's only a good replacement on mobile devices. Dolphin also tracks your data without telling you, but then so does Chrome, so :shrug:.

    The average person wouldn't be able to navigate this easily enough to gain the same functions as Chrome. It is for those acquainted with Vim.
