DISCLAIMER: Puffin Cloud Browser is NOT a web browser.

Puffin Cloud Browser is the client app that accesses the cloud server which runs the web browser. The Puffin client app and the Puffin cloud server do not communicate in HTTP protocol and the data exchange is not in HTML format. The Puffin client app is like the remote desktop client and the Puffin cloud server is like the remote desktop server. Puffin Cloud Browser gives the audience the illusion of a web browser but it is not, in reality, a web browser. Puffin Cloud Browser can only "display" the web content rendered on the cloud servers but can't "render" the web content itself on the client devices.

Although puffin is the best browser i have seen for flash games on the ipad it is definitely buggy this past month or so. There must have been an update and since the i have had all sorts of problems with it. First of all some new pop up when you try to play yoworld on facebook, it says true, under that leave and under that stay on this page. It's incredibly annoying to have to click on that every single time i try to do anything on the game.

Worse yet it started freezing constantly whch means constantly refreshing and having to click on that pop up again and again. I keep getting nothing but a white screen, the log off button won't fully open without refreshing several times. I've deleted the browser and reloaded it a few times to no avail. Up to 4-6 weeks ago I'd have given it 5 stars but not until they fix this bug. I don't play any other facebook games so don't know if there are problems with other games.

These issues seem to be unique to facebook. However like i said so far i haven't been able to find another browser that really works for flash games on the ipad.

Amazing App- Furious about its Fate

I have used Puffin Browser on my iPhone for a very long time and it has followed through every device upgrade. It easily enabled cookies (took me awhile to figure out how to do so on Safari) and allowed me to easily access the desktop site- destroying many issues that Safari gave me on several sites. I use Safari much more than I use Puffin, but for some sites, Safari does NOT suffice. I am a college student. I don’t need a ton of bugs and malfunctions with college websites just because Safari does not come equipped with the ability to switch to the desktop version of a site. I had to fill out a very important application the other day and tried to do so on Safari, but had to swap due the “Save” and “Submit” buttons vanishing- I had to remember everything that I had typed and type it all up again as a result. I am extremely displeased with this unjust removal of a good app. Thanks a lot. I now have to find a decent app that has the same abilities as Puffin so that i can complete important tasks or even just play a game and be able to see the whole screen. I’m going to miss that adorable European bird icon- puffins are very incredible creatures. I hope that the App Store people will retract their decision and work with the app developers, because the app was amazing.

Sad to see you go.

When I first received my iPhone and iPad nearly 2 years ago, I found it pure madness that Apple products still did not support Flash. I had searched through various browsers, but none seemed to support it either. The few that did were clunky, cost money, and half baked. When I had downloaded Puffin, I was tremendously pleased.

Using the browser was intuitive. I did not have to switch between functions to enable flash. I could browse freely and do what wanted without having to fight an application. Now over the last year, Puffin has had issues and hiccups. It no longer functioned on my iPad, and even more recently we’ve been advised they are closing service to Apple products. It’s a shame when competition can do far superior to an existing system and said systems only response is to block progress of competition. That’s rather backwards one would think. Would it not be better to improve so powerfully that the competition looks foolish in comparison? That’s sadly a rare case.

To all the staff at Puffin and those whom made it the wonderful tool it is, thank you. Thank you for all your hard work, your wonderful design, and your having fought this hard this long. We are sad to see you go, but ever grateful for the time you made things so much easier.
