When it comes to mobile internet browsers, there are quite a few to choose from. However if you’re looking for an alternative to whatever you’re using right now, you might be interested to learn that Samsung has announced that its Samsung Internet mobile browser is now open and available to all Android users.
This means that even if you don’t own a Samsung handset, you will now be able to download the browser and take it for a spin yourself. This is following a release from earlier this year where the Samsung Internet browser was made available for the Google Nexus and Pixel handsets, but now it will pretty much cover all Android handsets that are running Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher.
So why would you use Samsung Internet? According to the company, “Our desktop Chrome extension now supports syncing your bookmarks with Samsung Internet Beta – on all Android L+ phones. So you can easily open your Samsung Internet bookmarks on the desktop and vice-versa. You can also sync your bookmarks, saved pages and open tabs across your mobile devices. Enable ‘Sync with Samsung Cloud’ in the settings menu across multiple devices and keep them all up to date.”
Samsung is also touting features like support for content blockers so if you hate pushy ads, you can install certain blockers for Samsung Internet. Note that the latest Samsung Internet release is still in beta, but users can go ahead and download it from the Google Play Store if they’re interested.
