5 Good Mobile Browsers for Android Devices

5 Good Mobile Browsers for Android Devices

Using a mobile device to browse the Internet has its perks, but one of the biggest ones is that you have so many options for browsers. If you’re having trouble selecting one for your needs, it’s generally best to stick with ones that you’ve used in the past. Here are a couple of options you have for mobile browsing.

Firefox Quantum
Mozilla implemented new features for Firefox Quantum, including an overall improved performance to its backend. The browser itself also has a new user interface, giving it more viability against popular browsers like Google Chrome.

The new rendering engine is great for users of Firefox Quantum. Dubbed Stylo, it can potentially speed up the browser’s rendering by almost two times. You can implement extensions offered only on an Android web browser, as well as themes for how it is displayed. Furthermore, your account will allow the browser to sync directly with your Firefox browser on your desktop, giving you access to your bookmarks and browsing history.

Firefox has focused on privacy features, with tracking protection and automatic data wiping being two notable ones.

Brave Browser
Compared to Firefox Quantum, Brave is much faster and adds in even more built-in privacy protection. These include tracking protection and other extensions found on the desktop versions of Chrome and Firefox. The user can customize these features to their preference, and they can even take advantage of fingerprint protection to keep websites from collecting their browsing history. A bonus is that these preventions also speed up load times. Furthermore, this particular browser has its own cryptocurrency depending on how long users spend while browsing. All in all, privacy is what Brave focuses on, so if it’s something you prefer, try it out.

Google Chrome
Chrome is Android’s default web browser, and anyone who has used it in desktop form understands why. Android integrates with the Windows 10 operating system quite nicely, and any devices using Android have nice, clean functionality with any of Google’s many mobile apps. Chrome’s main priority is optimizing the user’s experience through any means possible. Chrome is the clear-cut winner in terms of browsing speed, even though some other browsers might perform better on specific sites. If all you’re looking for is a great web browsing experience, Chrome is the ideal way to do it on an Android device. If mobile data is a concern, you can even turn on the Data Saver option to minimize your expenses.

Samsung Internet Browser
Samsung’s flagship Internet browser provides a couple of noteworthy benefits, including the ability to install an ad blocker of your choosing from those offered by Samsung. Anyone who has used a mobile device to browse the Internet knows how annoying ads can be. While these might be the only available extensions for the Samsung Internet Browser, there are other apps that can help you keep your data private. Samsung’s useful navigation features can help you get around, particularly while using multiple tabs (just swipe through them in the URL bar for easy navigation). There is even a button to take you right back to the top of the page when it’s needed. Video is also much easier to view, as Samsung has a Picture-in-Picture mode and Video Assistance, pausing the video when adjusting the video’s size or orientation.

Microsoft Edge
Microsoft’s slimmed-down version of the Edge browser can be used on Android OS. It’s quite quick, and it can sync up with the desktop version, allowing you to take your browsing session on the road with you. If you log into a Microsoft account, all of your data can be synchronized with the browser. Additionally, Edge has a dark mode, allowing users the opportunity to change the usual black-on-white display mode to a white-on-black display mode, ideal for nighttime users. Finally, Edge can use Adblock Plus for native ad blocking, making it ideal for those who don’t want to deal with annoying ads that disrupt their user experience.
