At First

For develop 3 years, We build a unique browser that called Floorp. But, In these days, Floorp is so big. Some of the users don’t like this.

For this reason, We build a new browser. It named “Floorp Lightning”.

The browser has included some specific features same as Floorp Browser. However, most of Floorp’s features are removed.

It’s so fast. No bug. No telemetry & Easy to use.

Coming soon. Beta version is so close.

About Translation

Currently, Oversea users are improving! The Floorp’s user share is splinted with Japanese user with other country users.

We learn about localization (L10n) at webDINO Japan (ex:Mozilla Japan) the community event. After that, We want to set up a server that name is “Pontoon”. “Pontoon” is a localization platform built by Mozilla. But, we got some issue. Instead of this, Our localization is hosted on Crowdin.

If you want to join Floorp’s L10N community, Please Jump to Floorp-Browser dashboard in Crowdin. Floorp’s localization is available for 20 languages that localized by Volunteer.
