Browsing the internet is one of the major uses of any Android device, and like any other platform, Android also needs browsers to surf the web. While all Android devices come with built-in web browsers, 3rd party offerings often boast performance improvements and several additional features, which people have now come to take for granted. If you are looking for an improved internet browsing experience on your Android device, try out the browsers listed below.
This is undoubtedly one of the very best web browsers for Android. The sheer number of customization and personalization options Dolphin Browser offers puts it in the very front. The browser is solid, has tabbed browsing, voice control, allows gestures, has a web app store and supports the installation of add-ons, which further unify the browsing experience. This is one browser you must have on your Android device.
Chrome Browser by Google is inspired by its PC counterpart and is similarly solid and fast. It does lack the PC brother’s extensive add-ons and apps, but is simple, sleek and allows syncing pages, bookmarks and open tabs between all your devices. The new updated version of the app also features Google translate, which lets you browse pages in other languages. If you are looking for a browser which loads pages fast and does what it is supposed to do, you can bet on Chrome.
Next Browser for Android
Developed by the makers of the popular Go launcher, the Next Browser is, according to many, the bee’s knees! The browser looks good, is quite fast, and seems like a mash-up of Dolphin and Chrome. You can install extensions, for instance Facebook, Evernote and Pocket extensions and the browser has a tab called Next view, where you can check out the latest news from several different categories. This is definitely one browser you should try if you like a mix of style and substance.
OverSkreen Floating Browser
OverSkreen is on our list for being, well, an excellent floating browser. Instead of being a full-screen app like traditional web browsers, OverSkreen allows you to surf the net through a small window which you can move about on your home screen, all the while being able to interact with the underlying apps. You can also ‘minimize’ OverSkreen to access the background apps. However, unlike other browsers, OverSkreen isn’t free, but it is certainly worth the money if you are a multi-tasker who loves to stay on top of his/her apps (pun intended).
