It’s Cliqz rebranded as Ghostery

The Ghostery browser used to closely match the functionality of the Ghostery desktop browser extension. The current version looks and behaves exactly like their patent company’s now discontinued browser, Cliqz. Gone are the Ghostery features I depended on, like seeing the number of blocked trackers at the top of each page, being able to see which trackers were blocked, and changing the blocking behavior of for each tracker. The new Ghostery (and old Cliqz) may very well block the same trackers but it only gives you a summary by category of the trackers blocked and you cannot change the behavior. This is a big downgrade for people who used Ghostery because of the features it used to have. I hope they will integrate those features into this Cliqz/Ghostery codebase.

I love this browser!

I love this browser but it has a couple flaws like everything. Like I can’t figure out How to export my bookmarks… Is really the only big flaw. Otherwise it would also be nice to be able to organize my bookmarks into folders or something. It would also be awesome to be able change the homepage background colors. Maybe making it so you can Customize the buttons/controls would be incredible! No joke If it had a notepad that could open in a mini sub screen that you could move around and see it while you use everything els normally. it would be the perfect browser. And I download every browser I can find on the App Store. So far this is still the best! Honestly most of that is just me being picky and liking customizing and notes too much lol. But this browser is already the best browser to search something in multiple search engines! I love the fact you can add any search engine you want! Its easy to use. definitely the fastest browser on my phone. By far the best at tracking food delivery orders from websites like doordash and postmates that most browsers won’t load. It also doesn't hurt that the ghost is cute

Open links in a new tab? Nope

This is almost a fantastic browser. Instead it's so infuriating I am constantly on the verge of just deleting it. Why the hell can't I long-press a link and be given the explicit option of opening it in a new tab or a new background tab? Safari can do it. Firefox can do it. DuckDuckGo can do it. Brave can open in a new tab plus provides an option to open in a private tab. I refuse to use Chrome because of privacy concerns and plenty of acceptable alternatives but I bet it can do it too. This is basic functionality and if there is an option to enable this in settings I can't find it. Ghostery simply provides an option to "open" which is no different than tapping the link rendering it superfluous and could be removed with no loss of functionality for the user. To make matters worse, this browser does actually open links in new tabs, but in a seemingly random and opaque manner. I frequently end up shocked to discover numerous tabs have been opened while clicking links during the course of normal browsing without me being aware of it. This unexpected and bizarre behavior plus the apparent lack of an option to intentionally open links in a new tab almost ruins what is otherwise a great browser.
