An awesome Google alternative

After I learned that Google was storing the personal datas and information of their users, I decided to go with Yandex. For one reason, it's due to Google's discrimination against Russia. I'm just fed up with their actions and discriminations against Russia and everyone who doesn't bow down to them and their "masters." Another reason is that I'm a supporter of internet freedom, and Google is for censorship, internet regulation, and they're quite bias too. Google is configuring their algorithms so internet users would see the results that Google prefers you to see first. That way they can spread their fake news even easier while making alternative news harder to find. I'm hoping to get in touch with Yandex, because there seems to be 2 Yandex browser apps for download in the apps store. I'm not sure which one is the legitimate one or if they're both legitimate. So far, I'm liking the Yandex browser. It's not hard to get used to. Yes, I also have Tor and Safari (DuckDuckGo search engine) on my phone as well. Google Chrome used to be my general browser app. Now I'm switching to Yandex due to the disgusting behaviors of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the bias corporate who can't do their jobs without leaving politics out of it. Goodbye, Google! Hello, Yandex!

Amazing underdog browser

This browser does many things right: it was the first one to place navigation bar on the bottom, it’s controls are intuitive and easy, and the settings are rich. I love how tabs close and originator tabs come in focus when there is no more history going backwards. Unfortunately, this functionality does not yet exist for the swipe gesture. Also, I would love to have more swipe functionality akin to Safari.

UPDATE: What I meant by swipe functionality was the following. When I browse web pages back and forth, I like to swipe my finger from left to right to go back in history and from right to left to go forward. The browser does support this functionality. Unfortunately, when there is no more history to go backwards, you cannot swipe and close the page, but you can press the blank back button on the control panel for that effect. I would like this functionality be available with swiping also. Additionally, in Safari you can see all open tabs by swiping upwards from the control panel, but in Yandex browser you cannot: only pressing all tabs button works.

Does almost everything I want

I’ve been using Yandex browser for several months and have almost but not quite stopped using Safari entirely. I love several features it has that Safari simply doesn’t do, in particular searching for related images, and translation to other languages. In regard to the latter, I would love Yandex browser even more if the translation was PERSISTENT until turned off. That is, if I tell it to translate a page to english, then I follow a link somewhere else from that page, and another from there, and so on, it shouldn’t put me through the hassle to set to translate to english over and over and over; once should be enough. (Sadly, it doesn’t translate audio at all, or dub in subtitles, so Вован и Лексус videos aren’t much good to me.) Update: developer replies to other reviews say to go to Settings / Yandex / Language and set it to english; it’s already set to that, and it changes how the browser talks to me, but has no effect on translation of web pages. The help page says to turn on “Automatic page translation” but there’s no such option.
