The Best Browsers for Android Phones

Feb 25 2013, 2:58am CST | by , in News | Android

The Best Browsers for Android Phones
 
 

The choice is yours. Find out which browsers are the best to use on your Android phone.


If you’ve purchased an Android smartphone, you probably want to take advantage of all the features your device has to offer – including browsing the web. You’re not limited to a single browser option. In fact, Android users can choose from a handful of different browsers to suit their personal style and preference. Here’s a look at a few.

Chrome for Android: Good for Desktop, Good for Android

Google’s Chrome browser has de-throned Internet Explorer and Firefox with the most market share among web browsers. Chrome for Android also earns points for its flexibility and simplicity as a mobile browser. Users can sign into Chrome from a device or desktop to transfer the same personalized browsing experience regardless of where you’re accessing it.

Chrome’s multi-tab functionality operates like flipping through a deck of cards when accessed via a device. This browser is useful for students and executives who need to switch back and forth between web pages without a lot of hassle.

Firefox Start Screen Makes Accessing Favorites a Breeze

Like Chrome, Firefox has syncing capabilities so it’s easy to transfer your bookmarks and passwords between your desktop and device. Firefox has a start screen which displays the pages you last visited when you open it so you can quickly access your most-visited sites without even accessing your bookmarks bar.

Users who regularly frequent the same sites will fall in love with Firefox’s ability to interpret where you want to go. If you’re in a hurry to check the latest stock market news, for instance, Firefox has you covered with quick and easy access to your recently visited sites.  

Skyfire Offers Social Integration

Skyfire’s mobile version includes Skybar, video, explore, and share features that allow users to view Flash video content and makes social sharing a breeze. Features like a Facebook like button, Facebook QuickView, and Twitter integration make it a functional option for mobile users who like to stay connected to their social networks on the fly.

Sports, news, and finance buttons provide easy access to targeted content on the web and its Fireplace Feed Reader lets users stay up to date on all their favorite content.  Skyfire is a great browser option for students who like to stay in tune with their social connections as well as professionals who work in the digital marketing fields and need simple sharing features to adequately manage their social accounts on the go.

Opera Mobile: Oldie but Goodie

Opera Mobile can be synchronized with your desktop version for the same customized browsing experience complete with all your favorites and preferences intact – a feature called Opera Link. One useful benefit for heavy mobile Internet users is that it compresses data in the background, so you’re minimizing data traffic to stay under your data limits. Find out who has the best cell phone service, especially in regards to data plans and speed,  to get the same browsing experience you’re used to getting from your desktop.

If you rely on the Internet for work and you like to bring the same experience of the office home with you, you’ll appreciate Opera’s seamless syncing capabilities. Not to mention, it’s one of the oldest browsers around – so it offers some established credibility.

Boat Browser: Simple yet Customizable

Boat Browser is a simple platform designed to make browsing faster by rearranging buttons and customizing its look. Users can also customize actions for the volume buttons, setting them to switch between tabs or scroll up and down a website. A speed dial button functions much like a bookmarks bar, offering the ability to quickly and easily access your favorite sites. You can even access your favorite sites while you’re walking down the street using voice commands.

If there are advanced functions you don’t ever see yourself using, simply hide them from view. Boat Browser is ideal for users who don’t do a lot of mobile browsing, but like things to be quick and easy when they do.

Maxthon Android Web Browser Packs a Big Punch in a Small Package

Image via Google Play

Maxthon Android Web Browser is a small application that won’t take up much of your device’s valuable storage space, but it’s not short on features. It’s easily integrated with third-party applications and has built-in social sharing features for Facebook, Twitter, email, and more. Tabbed browsing is possible along with customization options to make your browsing experience truly your own.

Maxthon Android Web Browser is fast and efficient, but the best part is it's totally ad-free. That means more valuable screen space for viewing your content – and a good choice for users who like to get down to business without a lot of distractions.

Dolphin Browser: Speed and Sonar

Image via Google Play

Dolphin Browser’s standout feature is its Sonar, which provides a voice-activated search. If you’re constantly on the move and need to look up addresses, phone numbers, or general information, Dolphin provides the capability to do so while your eyes are paying attention elsewhere. Dolphin supports bookmarking, gesture, and more than 60 add-ons for personalized functionality.

Dolphin is a mobile browser designed for the hard-core mobile Internet user. If you like all the functionality that comes with a desktop browsing experience, Dolphin won’t disappoint.

UC Browser: Feature-Packed in an Easy User Interface

Image via Google Play

UC Browser offers a friendly user interface and many of the same features of the popular Chrome, Firefox, and Dolphin browsers. Users who want to cut back on data usage can take advantage of a few adaptable features which can reduce data traffic over various network connections. Social media lovers will appreciate the ability to share content with Facebook, Google+, and Twitter right from within the browser. If you browse in dim lighting, UC Browser’s Night Mode will serve you well.

Mobile browsers are offering more features and functionality than ever before. You can now choose between multiple browser options for the experience that most closely matches your personal needs and preferences. Whether you demand constant social connectivity or are looking for a simple, yet effective browsing experience, there’s a mobile browser to suit your needs.
