This has been my default browser for a long while now on all platforms I use , it just works, (Mac, Windows, Linux, Android), hooked up to yandex mail too for years now. When I look at the browser on my phone (Android 8) and tablet(Android 11, soon 12), there are a few features missing on the tablet such as incognito mode, dark theme, download manager, smart camera, my data(can't access my cards) but it's the same version of browser on both, please fix this inconvenience, thanks.
Thank you for the suggestions! I will pass them on to our developers, they will consider them when developing new versions of Yandex Browser.


Edit2: "Based on a careful analysis of existing extensions and user preferences," they only suggest THREE extensions. And they're not even the good ones. Luckily, you can install from "other sources" if you know the URL. But, running with ONE extension causes everything to slow way down. Also, there's almost as much built-in spyware as in Google apps. Hard to recommend. Clarification: privacy policy / ToS make it clear that there's LOTS of user tracking going on, similar to Google Chrome.
We value the privacy of our users, and all data collected by the browser is specified in the browser license agreement. It is in the public domain:


Yandex is great it's a must to install the optional ѴРИ if you want the ad blocking and I highly recommend it. it just uses it to block ads and good for privacy. I can go to certain sites that are loaded with pop-up pages and they never happen it's great. I still have a lot to explore but so far I give full stars as a secondary browser.
Thank you for supporting us! We will do our best to improve the browser and make it more convenient for you!


Extensions seem to be completely broken in both this and the Alpha version. You can't turn on the ones that are already in the extension list and you can't download new ones (it gives unzip error). Manually loading an unpacked extension says the manifest is not a valid JSON. Extensions are just 100% not working right now. Also I wish you could have a Dark Mode like Opera so that the pages have a dark background. This is a very important feature to me. Thanks, I love Yandex and hope it is fixed.
Thanks for the feedback! We will try to improve the dark theme in the future! As for the manual installation of extensions, the file access system has changed on Android 11 and above. We don't support it yet. As for the unzip error, write to us using the browser settings - "Contact us". We'll try to figure it out.


The Yandex Browser is pretty cool but I'm finding some problems with the extensions. For example the Discord Set stats extension it crashes after its second use or when I try to install Honey for coupons it crashes the app completely. And it's not usable anymore so I have to clear the data from the app witch I don't like doing. If you can help fix the extensions I'll give it 4 stars
Please specify how much free RAM is available on the device at the moment? Only this extension is disabled, the rest work normally?


One serious issue is the side swipe too sensitive. The slightest swipe left/right when trying to scroll up/down moves to the next page and you lose your place. frustrating when searching images.Will keep on my tablet.Initially deleted, but redownloaded.4stars because it's not just a good browser, it's built on its own capable search engine. It's an issue on my phone, but less so on my tablet. Good candidate to replace chorme, If only the L/R swipe wasn't so sensitive.
Thank you for your feedback! We will try to reduce the sensitivity of the side swipe. We hope that we will please you! If you do not use this feature, you can disable it in the browser settings.


Been using for a awhile to find a good browser that will work with extensions since, other browser reworked and loss ability to. This is better then Kiwi because that jumps around and won't scroll on web pages. Although recently EVERY time I click on a link it always opens in a new tab, and makes me choose my browser since I don't set default. I've gone through my settings and still can't fix it. So lowered to a 3 star and looking for a new web browser.

It has good points but has gone downhill. For more than a year I've been getting unwanted Russian language weather reports in my notifications. I contacted support but they could not fix it. For a while You Tube was the desktop version instead of the phone version it should have been. For a while Translate and many other options on a menu were not available. In response to Yandex, I already said I contacted support
Thank you for your message. We will check it. In case the issue is on our side, it will be fixed with the matter of time in the upcoming updates. Your message has been sent to developers.


I feel I need to expand on my last review. This browser does what most other Browsers offer pretty much the same. What blew me away is their image search. I have tried many times over 20+ years of using the internet for research, to search for a specific image. Google was the only one that would find the exact image that I had uploaded, and it would get it right about 30 to 40 % of the time. Not that great, but comparing to Bing (~5% accuracy), it was a no brainer. This app is at 95 to 99%. Wow!

This is by no doubt one of the most stable browsers available for Android. The user interface isn't very customizable though. Layout on tablets is very good but on phone it isn't. Please make the users decide where they want to position the URL bar. And the menu items would look better as a list in my opinion, and would take up less space. The square/grid icons in the menu take up too much space and look ugly
Thank you for the suggestions! They are passed to the browser's team, they will consider them when developing new versions of Yandex.Browser.


It becoming my go to browser. Speed dial page needs help when you add more than 3 speed dials there off the screen and you have to scroll down to see them. Open in app should not mean go to the Play Store when you don't have the app installed it should just open in the web browser then. That is annoying because I can't use it with certain websites because they had their own app and it's bringing me to the Play Store. I'll leave it at these two because they really need to be addressed.

I recommend this app as an alternative to other search engines, paired with Yandex Zen, this makes an excellent browsing experience. Select news filters and enjoy your news feed! Use the tableau feature for search favorites, and the starred favorites to save viewing material. Yandex Browser worked when other big name search engines failed and would not work. Beautiful free photo screensavers allow one to change backgrounds on the Zen feed. Translate feature is very well done and helpful.
Thank you! Our team will be very pleased to know that you like our browser so much!


I'm having a lot of trouble with this app. I signed up for an account in order to keep my bookmarks, tabs and passwords in place after a full factory reset. Not only has none of my settings come back with Yandex, every page keeps defaulting back to RUSSIAN. It is set for English, yet stays in Russian. I don't speak Russian. Everything I click on all displays in Russian. I translate the page back to English but it keeps reverting back to Russian. This app is no longer usable.
It will be much better if you write to our support team about each difficulty you have (browser menu - "Settings" - "Write a review"). The fact is that here the restriction on symbols is only 350, we will not be able to advise you qualitatively. Thank you!


It works but upon closing all tabs and exit, it remains in memory and as Active, no ad blocker and many ads are shown, even google ads. These two problems that just about everyone hates is not addressed. Also, it appears cannot make new folder for bookmarks and editing bookmarks is a two step process, 1st bookmark, then go to "edit bookmark". Why not edit when bookmark is being added? The background pics, are they really necessary? I tried to like it but simple issues need to be addressed.
Please specify if you have the opportunity to update the Android OS on your device? The fact is that, unfortunately, we ceased to support the browser for devices with OS Android 4, so we can not guarantee the stable operation of this version of the browser on your device. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.


I love the Alice AI! It scans QR codes straight from your pictures alone and can scan words right off of books, and it's not even a separate extension, so amazing! Yandex even has a built in extension catalog that installs new extensions automatically and you can choose whether to turn them on or off (However, I noticed some extensions just vanish for some reason). A must-have browser for people trying to downsize the app space on their phone.
Thanks so much for your feedback! If you encounter any difficulties using the browser, please write to our support team. We will check the situation.


Great app but it has a bug, when I use the translate feature on long texts, it skips random paragraphs. Even if I scroll them out of focus and back, still doesn't work. When I restart the app and try to read the same article with translate button, it skips different paragraphs so this skipping bug appears to be random. I haven't seen this problem with short texts.
If you do not mind, please write to the support service about the problem Due to the limit on the number of characters used - 350, here we can not advise you qualitatively.


So far, a better experience than Chrome. I like the fact that plugins are supported and its more or less minimalistic. I haven't had much time yet to experiment around, but my ѴРИ (Private Internet Access), seems to work with a far better speed than both chrome and fire fox. Unlike chrome, with plugins enabled I've experienced no ads yet. I can say that no matter how good chrome is, the relentless ads ruin the experience. All in all, I will continue to use this browser as my daily driver.
We do appreciate your support. Thank you so much!


I decided to try Yandex because of the reviews and to play with it to see if I liked it. It asked me at installation if I wanted it to be the default browser and I said no. I later opened a link in an email, and it opened in Yandex indicating it had set itself as the default anyway. I also could not get extension icons like Ad-Blocker to display in the browser bar to show the number of ads blocked. Very slow performance. Not for me. Deleted it.


Please make "go to full site" an option I can turn on for more than just the current page. Particularly since often when I use it it also acts as a back button (glitch I guess).. So I *can't* see a full version of a site. Some mobile sites blow, but I would still like the option to view the site without changing browsers. I need this enough that I may be forced to switch to another browser and I am all settled in here with no other complaints.
Thank you for your suggestion! Your message is sent to the developers. We will try to take into account your wishes and consider the possibility of implementing this functionality in the future.


Pleasant alternative to Chrome. Will run most extensions for Chrome desktop. Leaving off (1) star as the extension feature will not go to the Chrome store. Instead, you have to go to the store online. It does work however, and it is nice to be able to use Chrome extensions on a Chromium-based platform on Android. Good effort on the part of the developers and it seems to be a very active effort.
Could you please describe your problem in more detail? What exactly is not working correctly? If possible, attach a screenshot illustrating the problem to your message. It will help us to more quickly understand the reasons for the problem. Thank you!
