One of the advantages of Android is ability to install your own essential apps like a browser as your preferred default option. For users of Android smartphone, what do you think is the best internet browser? Although the default internet browser can do most of the stuff efficiently, but there are times when it cannot load certain websites due to varying circumstances. Thus, its a good idea to explore other browsers available in the Android market which offers different speed, features, and usability. The browsers are are ordered in a decreasing order according to my preference with the top on being the best.
Opera Mini Web Browser
Opera Mini loads web pages blazing fast and comes with efficient controls put it ahead of all other browsers, thus its not surprising most people claim its the world’s fastest mobile browser. One of my favourite features is tabbed browsing which allows users to browse several sites simultaneously. With page sizes, address bars and toolbars that adjust automatically, its as easy as web browsing on a desktop computer. Best of all, Opera Mini is just 755kb in size and helps users to reduce data costs by up to 90% with its unique compression technology.
Dolphin Browser HD
This browser not only delivers speedy web browsing, but also easy to use and performs exceptionally well in high quality graphics. Dolphin Browser is the world’s first Gesture, Sonar and Add-on enabled mobile web browser on Android. Sonar means Dolphin listens and allows users use their voice to search on the Internet, share on your favorite social networks, bookmark their favorite website, navigate and more. Dolphin browser is equiped with a wide range of fancy themes, multiple tabs browsing, multi touch zooming and most importantly, vivid sharp graphics.
Skyfire Web Browser
Skyfire enables richer, smarter and more fun mobile web browsing experience. Its also enriched with social features like easy access to Facebook and Twitter news feeds, profiles, friends, inbox, events and places. The Skyfire’s Toolbar can be customised based on user’s browsing preference. Users will also see more from their searches with video and social results. Its most intriguing feature is the ability to play millions of flash videos from the web that otherwise do not play or play poorly on mobiles.
Maxthon Android Web Browser
Maxthon is quickly gaining popularity due to the fact that its extremely fast and its also smart. Packed with cool features like the ability to sync to the cloud to enable users bookmark always available no matter where they are, Private browsing, Advanced Gesture, Download Manager, Tab browsing and Powerful Personalization, it definitely worth checking out.
Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular browser for web browsing, but unfortunately it is not so popular for mobile web browsing. Users have reported that Mozilla is slow, scrolling is choppy, the interface can be slightly unintuitive at times, delay on refocusing txt and images while zooming and does not support flash. Its better to give other mobile web browsers a try.
