Puffin Free is the free version of the Puffin Web Browser.
Puffin Web Browser is a very fast web browser which renders the full version of the web sites on iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. With the help of cloud computing, Puffin Web Browser brings the desktop web browsing experience to tablets and smart-phones.
2011 is a great year for the pilot rollout of Puffin. Puffin Web Browser, a paid app on iOS and Android platforms, has sold more than 500,000 licenses in its first year of launch and has been ranked as the #1 paid iPad Utility in over10 countries for the past 6 months. 2012 is the year for the mass rollout of Puffin. Puffin Free, a newer and faster version of the Puffin Web Browser, is available for free. Puffin Free is super-fast in loading, panning, and zooming of web pages.
Here are the highlights on the differences of the Puffin Free and the Puffin Web Browser.
*** Puffin Free will be search-engine and content-ads sponsored
The choice of the default search engine is subject to change, and content ads may be displayed alongside with the web pages. However, there is no plan to change the default search engine nor serving ads anytime soon.
*** Puffin Free is feature restricted
Expensive features on the server side may be suspended temporarily on the Puffin Free to reduce operating cost. Experimental features may be available on the Puffin Free sooner than on the Puffin Web Browser.
*** Puffin Free does not support Adobe Flash at launch
Lack of Adobe Flash support is the most visible difference between the Puffin Free and the Puffin Web Browser. As a consequence, Flash videos and Flash games will not play. Nevertheless, HTML5 videos will be fully supported.
