Chromer is a different browser based on Google's Chrome Custom Tabs.It aims to provide a mobile-first browsing experience.

It simplifies browsing by prioritizing rendering a link first than anything else. This is achieved by use of Chrome Custom Tabs which are lightweight browser tabs from Google Chrome (limited other browsers are supported too).

Chromer slides over the website from the app, enabling you to transition into the website seamlessly. Even if you navigate multiple times, you can always press X to quickly return to the app, where you left.
