Con Few annoyances left unchecked
The browser has a couple of bugs such as where extensions are not actually ran after installation despite a notification stating that they are.
Con Windows and Android only
No Linux, OSX or iOS version available.
Con Unstable and frequent crashes
Though the browser is really lightweight and lightning fast, it crashes many times and is clearly unstable.
Con Uninstallation problems
Polarity browser can only be uninstalled with a built-in deinstallation tool. This is very impractical.
Con Not keeping user settings, very unstabile, posible backdoor behaviour
After any browsing session after you exit the app and use a cleaner tool [CCleaner or other] when you start the browser next time, all setting inclusive search engine and security-privacy related is reverted to default... I tested for 2 weeks and don't find any other cause than that is from app internal, is programmed deep in core scripts.
