Puffin Browser now has servers in Singapore
« on: Nov 03, 2018, 11:38 AM »
I'm not sure how long Puffin has been routing through the Singapore server, but it's awesome that Puffin leverages servers in Singapore to improve the user's web browsing experience in Asia.The cloud browser does processing in the cloud to reduce stress on users CPU and provide faster web-page loading times.. This however seems to be initial testing phase, as every request doesn't seem to pass through the Singapore server from the region.

Tested on Puffin Browser for Windows:

So if you are lucky and your connection session is routed through the Singapore servers, you should expect slight speed boost. As the latency is faster the content should load faster as well.

Enjoy faster internet with Puffin Browser.
