Features

Blisk browser the same as Chromium and Google Chrome features a minimalistic user interface. For example, the merging of the address bar and search bar into the omnibox.

Emulation

Blisk comes with a pre-installed set of phones and tablets in emulated mode that makes it easy for developers to test how their code renders across multiple devices and browsers. The feature is used to compare how design responds to different screen resolutions and pixel ratios. Emulation functionality enables to test the page behavior in various environments without having to rely on actual devices, but emulating them directly on a PC or Mac.

Scroll synchronization

When looking at two different devices, developers can easily see how elements of their projects translate across devices with simultaneous scrolling, meaning if you scroll on your screen, Blisk also scrolls the same amount on the emulated device you choose. The developer can focus on web development without need to update the page manually every once in a while.

Auto-refresh

Auto-refresh feature in Blisk browser watches the changes in the file system and refreshes the web page automatically every time the user alters the code.

Security

According to the 56 tests by VirusTotal no viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware were found. Softpedia guarantees that Blisk is 100% clean, which means it does not contain any form of malware, including but not limited to spyware, viruses, trojans and backdoors

Privacy mode

The private browsing feature called Incognito mode prevents the browser from permanently storing any history information or cookies from the websites visited. Incognito mode is similar to the private browsing feature in other web browsers. It doesn't prevent saving in all windows: "You can switch between an incognito window and any regular windows you have open. You'll only be in incognito mode when you're using the incognito window".

Speed

The JavaScript virtual machine used by Blisk inherited from Chromium, the V8 JavaScript engine, has features such as dynamic code generation, hidden class transitions, and precise garbage collection.
