There are many different web browsers available for Android smartphones, all of them having interesting functions. Some of them are really popular, some of them are not and let’s take a look at a list of browsers for Android:
Firefox features incredible speed, along with Firefox Sync, meaning that if you use Firefox on the desktop, it will easily transfer your bookmarks and passwords. Firefox is the first mobile browser where you can use Do Not Track, and the home screen “Awesome Page”, where you can see your last visited tabs.
Until recently Chrome was available only for laptops and desktops, but now you can use it on your android device. You can surf the internet in Incognito mode, sync bookmarks via Chrome Sync, and now all the pages, passwords and bookmarks you used on a desktop will be available for you on your Android device. The only drawback is that Chrome is available only form Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean.
Its options and tools are unmatched, even if you compare them to reputable browsers. It also supports various third party plug-ins and tools to open bookmarks and navigate. Dolphin Browser is available in two versions: the “HD” version for phones that can go along with all its requirements, and a “mini” version for smartphone owners who prefer speed browsing at all cost.
If you liked Miren, one of the first Android browsers, then you will also like Boat, which is Miren’s successor. Works at incredible speed, light and absolutely free, Boat is easy to use, supports add-ons and has a useful voice engine control (so you can say “Facebook” and the browser will open Facebook for you). Boat Mini is available for Android phones that are not so powerful.
If you like to see Opera on your desktop, then Opera Mobile is for you. Opera Mobile supports Opera Link, and again you can sync your bookmarks and all other settings with Opera on your computer. Opera Mobile is fast, free, and compresses the data in the background so you can browse your favourite sites easily. Opera even has its own mini app store. If you have an older smartphone model, Opera Mini is a better choice – you will get most of the features, but faster.
