Web browsers have become an integral part of the Android world. Your usual Android phone ships with 2 browsers by default, one is Google’s own Chrome browser and the other is the stock browser that is put in by the OEM you are using. Android users have a habit of ignoring the Android browsers, mostly because there is an app for almost every major website. Talk YouTube, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter and even Tumblr. However, most purists still use Android browsers because they claim it gives them a better experience.
Keeping that in mind, we have narrowed down a list of 5 best Android browsers that you can use. These browsers have been put in the list after proper research and usage on several devices. So without further ado, let’s take a look.
It would be wrong to begin any list without the inclusion of Google’s very own Chrome. Known as the best browser on both the personal computers and mobile phones, Google Chrome is known for being feature rich and fast enough to quench your thirst for speed. Want more? You can actually sync the tabs from your computer to the Chrome you are using on your smartphone.
Not to be confused with Oprah Winfrey, Opera browser is one of the oldest browsers we know about, some claim that it is even older than the good ol’ Chrome. The Opera browser for Android is no joke, it’s fast, lightweight and completely safe. Just like Chrome, Opera also has the ability to sync your tabs seamlessly with your computer without any hassle or whatsoever.
While the browsers we mentioned earlier are extensions of their PC counterpart, Dolphin Browser is a different story, this particular browser started out on mobile devices and got real popular real fast. What’s better is that soon, the sync support was added to it, making it capable of syncing with all the popular desktop browsers there are.
Mercury Browser is one of the fastest, most amazing browsers on Android. Though you might not here its name that often, it comes with enough features to make your browsing experience a breeze. One particular thing we like about the browser is the ability to cycle between the light and dark colour themes that can change based on time you are using the browser.
Puffin Web Browser
If you are looking for a web browser that offers full Flash support, look no further. Now we all know that Flash has been abandoned on Android, but for some purists, it is still quite useful. This is where the Puffin browser comes into play, websites that have Flash based content are handled by Puffin’s own servers. This is great for people who still want Flash based content even though HTML5 is here to save us.
Choosing the best browsers for Android wasn’t that hard of a task. We started from what we liked and brought you these 5 browsers. If you think we missed on any browser, feel free to let us know in the comments below.
