Puffin Browser for Windows PCs offers users the same wicked-fast speed and security celebrated in its mobile version. The Puffin browser gets its speed by moving all of its processing off the user’s device and onto powerful remote data centers, accessed through the cloud. By leveraging the cloud, Puffin requires less of the computer’s processing and memory resources, like RAM, CPU and battery life. Puffin on Windows is compatible with Windows 7/10.
Here’s how it works: When a user clicks a link via the Puffin browser, the request will first be sent to Puffin’s remote servers. That server will collect the information to fulfill the request in milliseconds, preload all of the content and then mirror the resulting web page on the user’s device.
Since none of this data is transferred through the users’ actual devices, Puffin is able to provide the most secure browsing experience. In fact, Puffin Web Browser has never been data breached, since even the remote servers don’t store data or memory, which is what hackers are after.
Note: v184.108.40.2062 Beta changelog is not yet available.
