Crashes when I tap "Search text" in Incognito tab. Samsung Galaxy S10+. Android 12. Upd: clearing cache didn't work.
Yandex used to block ads. I have visited the same sites the past few years and for every update I see more and more ads. Yandex strong point has become their weak point. Also the russian google as standard search page is annoying. Like some others say, setting Yandex to english does nothing. Edit: I decided to try Firefox to compare their ad block. Yandes blocked 0 out of 9 ads, Firefox blocked 8 out of 9. This is beyond pathetic
Hmm, you can't turn off data collecting, can't choose language, can't choose appropriate country or region (other than the measly selection hard-coded), language is a useless mix of EN/RU. All in all, sadly not an app that can be recommended. The biggest issue is still the fact that you cannot turn off data collecting, which is a clear no-go. Don't know if this is possible if you're logged in, but that still wouldn't be good enough. Disappointing experience.
