    Runs well on my ancient Android Kit-Kat phone, has integrated ad blocking and a fair amount of privacy controls too. I haven't tried the extensions feature yet.

    Kiwi sounds really interesting. I currently use Bromite on Android, but going to give Kiwi a spin :)

    Kiwi Browser shows signs of life, teases team-up with fellow Chromium browser in future

    It hasn't had a new release since last year. I've tried to see what the dev is up to, but haven't found any news.

    I switched to Bromite this summer on my old 5.1 tablet and cheap 8.1 phone. It runs great and blocks most ads. Kiwi is still on Chromium 77? I think I'll pass.
