It’s been almost a year since the developers of CyanogenMod announced that they were working on a new web browser for their custom version of Google Android. Now it’s finally ready to go.

Developer Joey Rizzoli says the Gello web browser will be available on a select range of devices running CyanogenMod soon. The browser is based on Google’s Chromium source code and can do many of the things that Chrome can, but it also includes a number of special features.


For example, there’s support for edge navigation, allowing you to swipe left or right from the edge of your phone to move back or forward between web pages.

The status bar changes colors depending on the colors of the favicon for the website you’re visiting. There’s support for saving pages so you can view them when you don’t have an internet connection. And there’s a power saving mode.

It’s up to the developers in charge of maintaining each phone, tablet, or other device to decide whether to include Gello though, so not every gadget that runs CM13 will necessarily get Gello. You can find a partial list of devices that will initially support Gello at the CyanogenMod Italy website.
