Puffin Browser is a web browser developed by CloudMosa, an American mobile technology company founded by Shioupyn Shen. Puffin Browser was initially released in 2010. It uses encrypted cloud servers for content processing. Because Puffin renders webpages in the cloud, it could, according to some benchmark tests, make page loading, content rendering, and JavaScript execution faster than local device processing. However, as a result of the web pages being processed through cloud servers, the user's IP address when browsing the World Wide Web on the Puffin web browser reflects the cloud server's IP address. This causes some websites to detect the Puffin Browser as a proxy server.

This causes some websites to detect the Puffin Browser as a proxy server. Puffin Browser comes with Adobe Flash Player to play Adobe Flash content, including on mobile devices, where Flash was discontinued due to security issues. The features also include a virtual trackpad, gamepad, and on-screen keyboard functions. CloudMosa has a comprehensive product family of Puffin products that run on many different platforms (Puffin Browser on Android and formerly iOS, Puffin Secure Browser on Windows and on macOS, Puffin Internet Terminal on Linux, Puffin TV Browser on smart TV, Puffin OS on main stream smart phones. It is also known to run on resource-limited hardware like Raspberry Pi, set-top box, TV stick, etc.). In May 2019, CloudMosa had announced that they would discontinue the Puffin Web Browser app on iOS devices due to Apple's App Store policies. However, CloudMosa has released Puffin Web Browser Lite for iOS devices which does not have Adobe Flash Player Support. (en)
