Gello Browser for CyanogenMod includes Private browsing, Night Mode and More



Cyanogen team lately has been working on some of its own apps for the CyanogenMod ROM, and that included the Email app from Boxer, and a few other recent deals. The latest one that we get to know about, is the browser that is named Gello, and this although looks quite similar to Chrome for Android in a few ways, we are looking at something made by a team that has excelled in providing customization to the next level, so the list of inclusions is bigger.

The Gello browser doesn’t look funky or different from Chrome on the default view, but there are quite a lot of menu options, and the Settings is loaded with a big list. The Menu has the following options.

  • My navigation
  • Find on page
  • Save for offline reading
  • Add to home screen
  • Share page
  • Bookmark

Gello Download SettingsThe download section seems advanced, allowing user to choose download path, change the name before downloading, and showing the size of the file and estimated time for download based on the current speed. The progress is shown in the Downloads section, and user can choose to hit the Delete button and cancel download.

Private Browsing (You’ve gone Incognito) is similar to the one we see on the other Android browsers, and does the same job.

My Navigation section shows Bookmarks, History, and Saved Pages in three tabs. The History section has a Most Visited list showing which pages are frequently opened.

Gello SettingsThe Settings include all of these useful functions:

  • Setting home page – Current page, Blank page, default page, or most visited site can be set as home page
  • Setting search engine – Choosing from Google app, Baidu, Yahoo!, Bing and DuckDuckGo
  • Power save mode
  • Form auto-fill with a setup form
  • Night mode for inverting colors
  • Immersive mode that makes the browser full screen
  • Edge swipe – This gives options of either navigation through next/previous site, or do nothing

There are a lot of inclusions in the Privacy and Security settings, including “Do not Track“, Remembering passwords and form data, allowing third party cookies, settings for sites, and changing default site settings (including use of microphone, camera, location, etc.). In fact, the user can also control ads and distractive content.

Accessibility settings have text scaling and font size, and a toggle to force enable zoom.

This is just a video demo showed by one of those working on the browser, so we expect some more features, but if this is close to the final release, we won’t be disappointed at all. To add a note, the Gello won’t be working on low-end devices, as it is based on Chromium open source project, which requires a good hardware to run the browser properly, and thus, the compatibility will be limited.
