Cake uses the same browser as Yahoo, meaning that it has the same security holes as Yahoo. Yahoo is also a big target for hackers, and a web page that will hack Yahoo also will hack cake.
Con Dumbed down its latest versions
Before, Cake almost felt like DuckDuckGo. Now it's dumbed down, it almost feels like Chrome/Chromium. For example, it's still not secure on websites you visit.
Con Has odd behavior
When you leave the app and go back in, it lets you go back to the top of the page, rather than where you are.
Cake is currently available on mobile only. Due to the screen size, cake is not available on windows, linux, etc.

Since it's based on Yahoo.
