Mercury Browser is a discontinued freeware mobile browser for Android, developed by iLegendSoft. Mercury Browser uses the Webkit engine.[citation needed] It was formerly available for iOS, but in 2017, it was removed from the App Store[1][2][3][4]

Features[edit]

Mercury Browser supports tabbed browsing, where users can open and switch between web pages with multiple tabs either at the top of the display or a thumbnail at the bottom. The browser also supports over ten gestures for ten functions, a browser sync allowing the user to sync Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome desktop bookmarks across devices, a private mode that stops the browser from recording the user's search history and cookies, integrated ad blocking, a night mode that dims the screen, and a reading view.[3]

Adobe Flash is only supported in the Android version of the browser.[4]
