5 New Mobile Browser Alternatives to Chrome and Safari

Your smartphone comes loaded with a browser and you probably use that without ever changing it. But that might mean you are missing out on a much better web experience if you never tried other browser apps.

For a lot of people, Google Chrome is the default mobile browser. The latest Chrome 66 update has introduced a new UI and changed the media player. You can do a lot more with Chrome on Android than you think, and the iOS version is an excellent alternative to Safari.

But look beyond Chrome. There are other mobile browsers out there that can completely change your gateway to the internet.

1Cake (Android, iOS): Better Search Experience With Quick Loading

Cake reckons that the current mobile browser is a miniaturized version of the desktop browser. So, the team set out to build a browser made for the smartphone. It focuses more on helping you find and browse things easily.

Cake is unique in offering to change how search works on the browser (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, or any other). Instead of the usual search results page, it opens the first organic search result automatically. Swipe right to go to the next page, already opened. Behind the scenes, Cake takes care of pre-loading the fastest sites so that it’s a smooth, fluid experience.

The browser also offers deep customization. You can use different search engines for different purposes, like Google for web search, Giphy for images, YouTube for videos, and so on. Plus it has ad-blocking, popup-blocking, and many of the other features in the best modern mobile browsers.

2. Smooz (Android, iOS): One-Handed Browsing With Gestures

Usually, browsing on your smartphone requires two hands. You hold your phone in one, and you swipe with the other. Most browsers don’t enable a good one-handed experience where your thumb does all the work. Most browsers aren’t Smooz either.

Smooz uses smart gestures for the most common tasks in a browser.

For example, tap and hold a link to open it in a new tab. Swipe to switch from one tab to the next. Pin tabs with a custom gesture so you don’t accidentally close it or browse away from it. It’s quite intuitive, and you’ll love the experience.

Of course, you’ll need to type with one hand too. For that, use Gboard keyboard on Android with its one-handed mode, or learn how to type with one hand on the iPhone.

3. Internet by Amazon (Android): Light, Fast Browser With News Feed

Android users who run out of space and need faster lightweight apps, there’s a new browser for you. And it’s made by Amazon, of all people.

It’s called the internet and takes less than 5MB of storage space. It is quick to launch as well and behaves like most common browsers. There is even a “private mode” which some other light browsers lack. And Amazon has included something to make it feel more like Google’s Chrome: a news feed.

Open the app and you are greeted with a page that is exactly like Chrome on mobile, with your most frequently visited sites followed by recent news about topics you are interested in.

Amazon also claims this is a private browser, but it’s unclear how or why that is. The app still asks for permission to your photos/media/files, your memory storage, and full network access. Granted, it’s not as intrusive as Chrome, but take the “private” tag with a pinch of salt as
Amazon has some issues with privacy.

The browser is currently available only in India, but you can download and install the APK by side loading it.

4. DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser (Android, iOS): Privacy First, Browsing Second

This is a time when everyone is worried about how much we are being tracked online. DuckDuckGo has made a name for itself as a
privacy-focused search engine. Now it has new browsers to protect you while surfing the web.

By default, the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser will ensure you are on an encrypted connection with the site, and it blocks common malicious trackers as well. Each website gets a privacy grade according to this, so you know if you’re on a site that can compromise your data. At any point, you can tap the “Fire” logo to clear all your browsing data.

Apart from that, it’s a simple web browser that offers everything that big browsers like Chrome have. If you want to know more, read about how DuckDuckGo’s new apps keep you safe.

5. Samsung Internet Browser (Android): A Weird but Interesting Choice

Generally, our advice has been to
replace Samsung apps with better alternatives. But in this one case, you should consider replacing your regular browser with the Samsung internet browser instead.

Samsung internet is a Chromium-based browser, so most features are what you’d get in Google Chrome.

But use it once and you’ll immediately notice the speed difference. Samsung internet feels much faster. It is also better at a lot of the things that you might find limiting in Chrome, like the download manager. And in a surprise move, the Samsung internet browser actually uses much less battery than Chrome too.

Finally, Samsung has done something that Chrome still hasn’t: extensions. There isn’t a huge number of extensions yet, but the ones that are there prove useful.

Know How Browsers Compromise Privacy

If you use the browser that came with your phone, it’s important to know that this is probably compromising your privacy. The company that sold you the phone, or the one that made the browser, or both will be tracking you across the sites you visit.
