This can be achieved by some real good and trusted browsers . So here we are with 5 Best Android Browsers of 2017 . Lets begin!!!
1. Google Chrome
Google Chrome is one of the fastest and best browser for Android known to mankind since the dawn of Mobile-User Civilization. Being a product of the tech giant, Chrome provides ample features to tinker around. Chrome is loaded with lots of features which is more than adequate for average person, which includes built-in Flash, HTML 5, incognito window, Data saver (have to enable), & importantly possess the ability to sync all histories, passwords &bookmarks across any device seamlessly using Gmail account.
Best part, it is updated regularly which weeds out potential bugs, so no hindrance is likely to be encountered.
It is probably the major competitor of Google Chrome is Firefox. And it’s already a top on desktops and laptops and also wants to be on Android smartphones. Its interface is clean and simple and will have reached few touches any part of the app.
We can also easily move with gestures, and one thing Chrome does not have is the “reading list” where we can store web pages to “read later”, stored in text format for ease of reading. Firefox is free and allows, in turn, installation of add-ons like Adblock or others. The overall browsing speed is good.
3. Microsoft Edge
Emerging from the ashes of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge is the new hotness for web browsing on PC. Currently available as a pre-release beta in the Google Store, it’s shaping up to be a pretty decent alternative to Chrome
It’s nice having the navigation buttons at the bottom, especially using taller screens, making it much easier to open new tabs and quickly add articles to your reading list. But the biggest perk here comes if you’re also using Edge on your PC. Anchoring that navigation bar is that you can easily switch over between browsing on your phone to your PC
