Refreshing Intuitive Browser with Some Gripes
I’ve been using the Cake browser for a few months now and I have to say, it’s an absolute joy to use when it works the way it was intended and that happens a good majority of the time. This core concept of swiping between search results and dedicated search buttons for types of searches cut out some annoying steps in the browsing process and feel totally next level. For all the focus on UI efficiency, there remain two major frustrations that still bug me with Cake, when typing a url, it doesn’t autocomplete based on your search history, and there is no pull down to refresh a page and the button is all the way at the top of your screen. These two things are a weirdly big deal to me.
I’ve also seen some frustrating behavior where some sites just won’t load properly due to what I can only guess is the ad blocking tech. So I haven’t yet been able to switch completely to Cake, I have to keep a backup browser handy just in case.
I find the frustrations and quirks are worth putting up with considering what a refreshing concept it is and I like the idea of a small startup sticking it to the data hungry, big Corp browsers that dominate the scene today. For now, I’m a Cake believer and hope they continue to refine this very novel browsing experience.

it's really refreshing
cake as a web browser is super efficient at getting you the information you need as fast as possible. for example, in class, we were assigned certain parts of a book to read. as soon as I entered the pdf version of said book, it came exactly onto the screen as needed without having to hassle through various sites like scribd to find an authentic pdf version. I was extremely pleased with the layout and how easy it was to use the app. if you're a little technologically challenged, just go to the settings and it will teach you how to manoeuvre you're way through the app. I thoroughly enjoy this web browser and believe it has a lot of potentials. I haven't come across most issues posted in the reviews so I can't offer much criticism since its such an easy to use browser. aesthetically, its passing. I think the app is organised and well structured to give it a pleasing look. and aside from everything, I am giving a 5-star rating because the developmental team have been so patient with the populace and hard working on furthering the success of their work. good job guys! you're awesome!
It’s The Best, But...
... it’s missing a few organizational features for long term usage, like bookmarks and favorites. That said, this app does exactly what it is supposed to do, that being browse to find specific or relevant information, images, and videos. It’s much faster and more intuitive for mobile devices than any other browser App, and I would love to see it grow to rival other browsers in its own niche. That said, I think people like me probably won’t be putting it on our home docks until it’s updated to save links without me having to open up the notepad app (or some other browser). My other complaint is that searching by image is not well supported in this browser. Tapping and holding on an image had ought to make an image search an option, or at least open the image in another tab. As it stands, the app is beautifully well suited to news, porn, and meme searches, but when it comes to saving and organizing what you find, the app is currently sadly lacking. So close to perfect!
