Flow is a web browser with a proprietary rendering engine that claims to "dramatically improve rendering performance".[1] Its JavaScript engine, however, is the SpiderMonkey engine of Firefox.[1][2]

Flow is developed by the Ekioh company, which has made simpler browsers for set-top boxes and other embedded systems.[3]

Flow is a recent entrant to the browser market. The first beta was in December 2020.[4] Ekioh is focusing on its use in embedded systems, including a beta version for the Raspberry Pi.[5][6]
