Install Flow on Raspberry Pi


High-performance browser built from the ground up without relying on Chromium.
This is a closed source web browser specifically designed for running on the Raspberry Pi platform. It makes extensive usage of the GPU, and it outperforms many faster computers on the same benchmark.

This is a preview version, and you are bound to find places where it does not work well. Javascript support is still buggy, and other features are missing. But when Flow Browser works, the result is impressive.

To run: Menu -> Internet -> Flow Browser
To run in a terminal: flow

Fortunately, Flow is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Flow.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Flow will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
