Every year, we see a slew of new mobile browsers being launched in the market, and while some of them are really promising with genuine developers working hard behind the screen, there are some that are just absolute scams.
When it comes to smartphones also, the OEMs these days are working on their own browsers and giving them as default in their smartphone offerings, but in this case, also, there have been many proprietary browsers that have been exposed for some not so legal activities.
In such a volatile market, here is a list of the top three mobile browsers, from which you can choose what is the best mobile browser for your smartphone.
Number 1. Google Chrome
Just like its PC counterpart, the Chrome browser for smartphones features all that we love about Chrome in the size of a smartphone. Google has been hard at work on its mobile version of Chrome, and at the moment, 85-90% of the features that you see in the PC version, have been ported to the smartphone version.
The Chrome browser comes as a default browser on all Pixel and Android One devices. In case you want to use the Chrome browser on your smartphone, it is available as a free download on the Play Store and App Store.
Number 2. Safari
The jury is out on whether Safari is better than Chrome as a browser, but since it is currently exclusive to Apple devices, we place it at Number 2 on the list.
Safari has come a long way in terms of development, and with the new iOS 14 platform now live, it has got a host of new security features that tries to keep your browsing experience safe and hassle-free.
When it comes to response, the Safari browser is as smooth as you would expect, and the basic functionalities that you would expect in a mobile browser are all there.
As we mentioned earlier, the Safari browser is available as default on iOS devices.
Number 3. Microsoft Edge Chromium
Microsoft Edge came in as a replacement for the Internet Explorer browser and it received flak from almost everyone who used it, as all the problems that plagued Internet Explorer were still present in Edge.
The mobile version, which made its debut with the Windows Phone platform, was an absolute mess and the first thing users did was to download a new browser.
But, recently, Microsft announced a new Edge browser, and this time, they just played it right and built it on the Chromium browser, which by the way, the same platform used by the Chrome browser.
Since its launch, the new Edge browser has been breathing down the Chrome browser’s neck, and while it still needs a few tweaks, it won’t be long before the Edge browser and Chrome browser go head to head.
