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.

Google Chrome hack allows Android apps to run on any desktop

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”.

Facebook app testing opening links in built-in browser

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.

Now Browser Extended brings power to lightest web browser
