Durex had ruled the hearts of thousands of Kodi users until was sadly shut down. People have been longing for an alternative ever since, but thanks to the same developers that created Durex, Xanax got released. Simply put, Xanax is Durex reincarnated into something even better. Now that the build is finally available to install on Kodi Leia version, more users are getting in line to get their hands on it.

Xanax seems to be highly inspired by Durex in terms of interface and functionality. Being much lighter in size than Durex, Xanax works smoothly on almost all devices. Xanax features nearly all working add-ons that Durex offered, on top of others. It also comes with a decent collection of video add-ons like Exodus, Deathstar, and Monster Munch, which makes it an attractive pick for streaming fans. In light of all these features, Xanax rightfully made it to our exclusive list of best Kodi builds with zero buffering.
