Kinetic Browser Lite

A FREE web browser app that can be used to navigate the world wide web with one hand using a series of kinetic hand movements.




Absolutely FREE


Kinetic Browser is an inexpensive version with additional features including AdBlocker.

After an injury when I temporarily lost the use of one hand, I designed a web browser I could use during recovery. After I recovered I subsequently discovered many occasions when I still needed to hold my device with one hand and be able to browse the web.

For example:-

  • on a bus
  • on a busy train
  • on a sail boat
  • walking with a stick
  • holding somebody's hand
  • eating an ice-cream
  • or a hotdog
  • holding a drink
This has become increasingly difficult with a larger and larger devices where one's fingers can no longer reach to the far end of the screen.

The solution was a browser that can be navigated using movement gestures such as flicks (to the sides or up and down) tilts and slide movements on the edge of the screen with one's thumb.


Some phones do already have a one handed mode, which either shrinks or slides the current display downward or into the corner blanking the rest of the display.

Kinetic Browser is different!
It has been designed to provide a FULL screen, beautifully fluid, user experience whilst using only one hand without awkward tapping or shrinking.
It can also be used on full screened tablets with an inovative tilt and flick cursor mode.

IMPORTANT Not to be used whilst driving or operating machinery.

Movement Gestures

Normal position

The browser's active area can be moved around using 'flick' movements of one's hand.


Flick to the side

You can flick to the side so you can now reach the far side of the web page with your thumb, flicking back to the other side will return the screen to it's original position.


Flick towards

If you flick towards yourself the screen will move downwards to reach the upper part of the web page with your thumb, flicking away will move the screen back to its upper position.

Tap link

Tapping a link will navigate in the normal way and restore to default location.

Flick away

A flick away will open up the favorites screen, you can then use tilt and flick gentures to select the favorite.

Flick to far side

A flick to the far side will switch into tabs mode. Here you can either flick to the left or the right to move tabs. Flicking away will select the tab.

Flick to add

A flick away will add a new tab to the set of tabs.
