If you are an Android user looking for a new web browser to try out, UC Browser for Android has been updated with some new features. The update landed on October 26 and brings with it the expected bug fixes along with other tweaks.
If you ever looked down at your wrist and wished that your smartwatch could surf the web, Opera has a new browser for you. The new browser is a full-web browser that is designed specifically to run on the Samsung Gear S smartwatch running Tizen. The browser is a version of Opera Mini.
Browsers on the desktop have gravitated towards giant names, but the mobile space remains more or less uncharted territory that is open to many, sometimes even too many, alternatives to leave a mark. While there are countless browser apps we can list down, one of the most notable is Javelin Browser, which has just gotten even more notable with this latest version.
Recently, Google made an interesting addition to Chrome which allows it to run certain Android applications through what it called ARC or “App Runtime for Chrome”. There were limits to what ARC could do – like running only on Chrome OS and only for certain apps – but the good Android developers generally dislike limits, so a developer named “Vladimir” went on a process of taking the limits away.
There are numerous web browsers for Android but only a few deliver fast mobile browsing. Dolphin, one of the best Mobile Web Browsers for Android, was recently updated with new features and some bug fixes. Its developer added a Search engine option and support for multiple-thread downloads.
Google's search optimizations and features are all about giving you answers to questions as fast as possible, sometimes even before you finish asking them. Such might be the rationale behind a somewhat hidden feature in the Chrome for Android browser that puts the answers you might want, right in the browser's suggestion box.
It’s taking them slowly but surely to roll it out, but Google is continuing to apply its Material Design to its products. The latest to have been updated to this new look is something that most Android users probably have on their devices: the Chrome Browser. Version 37 of one of the most popular mobile browsers sees a new look, a simplified sign-in system and more bug fixes and improvements which is always a welcome update.
Firefox and Chrome might be the big boys of the browser market, but on Android, there is another name that consistently rises to the top. Dolphin Browser gives users many of the features of mainstream browsers and more via add-ons. And now with an upcoming major version 11 update, it is has added a few new features that will make it an even more enticing option for Android users.
When your Internet connection is not as fast as you’d like it to be and you’re browsing through some links but you also need to do other things on your smartphone, then you need a browser that has the capability to multi-task with you. Some lightweight browsers like Now Browser or Javelin have the ability to do that and another one that you can add to your options is Flynx, even though it is still in Beta mode.
Most people who are on Facebook have a love-hate relationship with the hugely popular social network, particularly when it comes to rolling out new features. What the social media giant does is test out new features on a random subset of users before slowly rolling it out to the public. So if you’re one of the “lucky” ones to run into this new functionality on the Android app, you’ll notice that opening links within now leads you to a built-in web browser rather than your smartphone’s default browser.
