As occurs in Windows, the browser that comes by default in Android offers good performance although not always the best option especially depending on our needs and usage habits. So today in AndroidADN we bring you a selection of the 10 best browsers for Android!
Best Browsers for Android
10. UC Browser
UC Browser enters the ranking as the most popular browser in China, making it one of the most used. It looks similar to Firefox in terms of its interface and aesthetics, and is one of the browsers available on more platforms as it can be found in both Android such as iOS, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Java and even Bada.
Note that the browser has bugs and may see occasional crashes, at least that was my case in Jelly Bean.
Its interface is simple and attractive and worth installing if only to try something different.
Overskreen is a program that is not only intuitive but that has more than interesting options such as overlaying windows across any application that is running and you can minimize, resize or center if necessary.
While it may not be used in Jelly Bean, according to its developers the update is on the way.
8. Boat Browser
Boat Browser is another browser that is not too pretentious but gets the job done like the native Android or Ninesky, Boat Browser will allow us to navigate easily and effectively, and if we dig a little we will see that its menus has some interesting configuration options to adapt the browser to our needs.
As for its interface is noteworthy that brings several “themes” to change the look and colors of the browser with paid options in the market and free ones within the same application, and has some interesting options like the ability to take screenshots, night mode and voice search.
Skyfire is a browser that gives us a significant amount of features and disputes with Dolphin the title “browser with more options.” We have on the very navigation screen the ability to interact from the menu with the social networks with button “like” on facebook or a converter Flash-to-HTML5 which makes uploading videos much faster.
Its interface is not the most polished of all, and compared to Dolphin HD loses some features-speed connection, although I must say that is a good browser and it certainly stands out above the rest as it features options not seen in other browsers.
Skyfire browser may not be the easiest to use or intuitive, but unquestionably it will be able to offer some more than interesting options for the advanced user of Android.
Ninesky is a browser simple and effective which has some characteristics that distinguishes it above the rest as the night mode that adjusts the brightness or the ability to load only the text of a site to make browsing faster with a lower data consumption especially useful when we are without WiFi and poor signal.
Its user interface is simple, nothing special, but like the native Android browser, does the job. The speed of page loading is similar to the rest and has several options for setting the navigation safety.
Ninesky also has the option to view in full screen mode so that the tabs do not bother reading, and as major cons is the lack of incognito mode and synchronization with the desktop, but is an excellent program to read in a hurry when we seek something specific.
Surely you know the desktop version of this popular browser, now we can enjoy Firefox in Android.
While it is true that Firefox does not stand out for its speed, I must confess that it turned out to be an excellent application. It has the main features of Chrome such as sync with our desktop browser, view content in full mode and not in mobile format, and incognito mode transitions are effective although not as accomplished as in Chrome.
In my consideration is one of the best browsers because besides all the aforementioned allows you to add the large number of plug-ins that Mozilla has thus if you are a user of the desktop version this is the browser for you.
4. Native Android
This is the default browser in the Nexus devices and can also be seen in those who have installed CyanogenMod 9 or 10 that while not the same is almost equal (AOSP).
It is a quick and simple browser that synchronizes data with our computer´s Chrome such as pages and markers, and in terms of appearance is simple and practical. This makes loading fast and allows us to control cookies and other data.
While not very complete in terms of features contains the bare minimum to get the job done efficiently and without errors possible. It also has an option to save the pages. A simple and efficient browser, much like Jelly Bean.
You can find a similar version of this browser on the link below:
3. OPERA MOBILE
Opera Mobile is the default browser of Nokia and has its well deserved place in Android and must be said that they have done more than fine with this application.
It is chosen by many users mainly for its Opera Turbo compressor that offers the possibility of reducing consumption and speed up the loading of data, which is especially useful if you surf without WiFi. In addition to this, it has a version of lower requirements for low-end devices called Opera Mini so that all the Android can have Opera Mobile installed.
Its user interface is very attractive and intuitive and provides the main needs when surfing the web. Undoubtedly a browser very solid and interesting.
2. Dolphin Browser HD
Dolphin Browser HD is undoubtedly one of the most complete in terms of characteristics included in the application because only in the home screen gives us the possibility of setting Flash, the browser demand, the ability to emulate a desktop or the appearance of an iPhone or iPad.
It also offers the ability to make gestures to enter predetermined sites like YouTube or Gmail (choice), multi-touch zoom and the voice search with Sonar is also highly configurable.
Dolphin Browser HD is also a very fast browser with a simple but attractive interface that is intuitive when we navigate and offers many configuration options like emptying the cache or history by simply pressing the button go back. Undoubtedly one of the best browsers for Android.
1. Chrome for Android
The flagship browser Google could not miss in Android, and for quite some time is available to download from Google Play.
Chrome for Android is the fastest of all the browser and has all the main options that have been mentioned, its interface is attractive and intuitive and it is supported by Google which ensures we will always be updated and optimized.
In addition to this, given that with Android will necessarily have a Google account the synchronization with other devices is important, therefore if you want your smartphone directly related to our PC , this application has wonderful options.
As in its desktop version, Chrome has a high speed of page loading, an intuitive tabs management and has the ability to synchronize with our desktop´s Chrome which can be very useful for remembering passwords, open tabs and other data.
In the new tab page allows you to choose among the most visited websites and personal bookmarks. Chrome for Android also gives us the ability to view in full mode the sites optimized for mobile pretending we’re in a PC.
Undoubtedly, Chrome for Android is the best browser that exists at the moment, useful for the novice user as for the expert, is fast, comprehensive, simple to use, intuitive and free. What more could you ask?
