One of the things going for devices running on Android is that users can customize to their heart’s content. The platform is much more open than its rival, iOS, and this makes a huge difference for people who want to be able to tweak their devices to suit their preferences. When it comes to browsing the web, there definitely is no shortage of choices for the default browser.
Whatever features you are looking for, there certainly will be one or two Android web browsers that will make you one happy camper. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular Android web browsers, then you can take your pick.
Firefox for Android is fast, free, and is one of the top favorites of Android users. The mobile version of Firefox is even more perfect for you if you already use Firefox as your default browser on your laptop. With Firefox Sync, you do not have to worry about bookmarks and passwords saved in either device. For users who have an affinity for add-ons, you’ll be glad to know they’re supported in the mobile version as well.
Speed and simplicity are the key points for Google Chrome for Android. Again, if you’re already using Chrome on your computer/s, then it makes sense to go use it on your phone or tablet. The mobile version also has Incognito Mode as well as Chrome Sync. Proponents say that if you think Firefox for Android is fast, then you’ll be impressed with Chrome.
If you’re based in Belarus, then this is a no brainer of a choice. But even if you’re located elsewhere in the world, Opera Mobile is a good choice for your Android device. If you’re worried about your data usage, this browser will give you peace of mind as it has a wonderful way of compressing data in the background, ensuring the least possible data usage.
This browser may not have as big a name as the first three Android web browsers, but it has already developed a good following. Users usually cite the rich repertoire of tools and options, as well as its openness to third-party plugins. And, if you’re the gesture kind of person, then you’ll love this browser. For even faster browsing, check out Dolphin Browser Mini.
