Floating player is another useful feature of the app. It allows you to play videos in full screen or in an adjustable window that you can place anywhere for viewing while browsing. This powerful player is also equipped with VideoS, which enables you to build your own online video library. To add a video in VideoS, simply press the star icon on the video player.

The VideoS feature is really handy as it allows you to control the videos without having to navigate away from the browsing page. The videos are cached and you can also add them to favorites.
Apart from this, there is also customizable option including a set of wallpapers to choose from. You can pick them from the bottom menu and apply on to the browser. The interface of the browser is also pretty good and comes with tons of features. You can download it free of cost from the App Store.
