Recently, I brought a Samsung Galaxy I9000 running Android 2.1 (Éclair), and currently, it’s the best smartphone operating system around the globe. With wide application support, Android is sure to win your hearts.
Web browsing is one of the most important tasks that one carries out on his/her smartphone, and undoubtedly, the search for the best browser for a user never ends. Before I talk about the 4 best browsers one can get on their Android phone, I must say that the default web browser provided by Android is powerful enough for general everyday browsing, but if you really want that extra pinch of flavor, here you go.
No matter what OS you are running on your Smartphone, there is always a version of Opera Mini to ease your browsing. If you are looking for a simple replacement for your default browser and are working on a slow connection, Opera Mini is your solution. It provides you with faster more efficient web browsing experience. It uses its powerful servers to compress data by up to 90% before sending it to your phone, so page-loads are lightning fast.
Although in the alpha stage of release, Fennec provides a very promising web browsing experience to its user. Data compression, add-on support and fast user interface are some of the features of this browser. The users who work on Firefox on their desktops can easily synchronize bookmarks and saved pages using a small add-on called Weave.
If you want to play online flash videos while browsing on your Android devices, Skyfire is the only available solution for you. It promises to make your browsing experience rich and more interactive by its mobile/desktop browsing views, but at the same time, drains more battery juice and process power. Incorporated is the SkyBar at the browser’s footer which implicates Video, Explore, and Share with a single touch.
The above three browsers are sure to satisfy ones browsing need but for those who always want more to try their hands on, xScope is definitely worth a try. With features like Instant Back/Forward navigation, Tabbed Browsing, Import Google bookmarks, take Screenshot, file handling, it’s worth giving a shot.
These browsers will definitely serve your basic and advanced needs in web browsing on your Android phone. Did we miss your favorite browser? Let us know in the comments.
