Chrome, Firefox, and Samsung Internet are great browsers for everyday users including myself. For most, these browsers have everything they need from robust rendering systems, incognito browsing and great speed. However, if you’re curious about what other browsers may be available that offer different and unique features, here are a few lesser know browsers that we think you should check out.
Kiwi Browser – Fast & Quiet
Kiwi is a new browser focusing on speed and security. The Kiwi browser uses the latest release of Chromium to ensure fast page loading on sites. One unique feature that this browser brings is that it’s the first Android browser that blocks hackers from using your device to mine crypto-currency. Using the Kiwi Browser is the ability to go to m.facebook.com and use Facebook Messenger to chat with your friends without having to install the Facebook application. Pop up ads can be annoying, but Kiwi includes a strong pop-up blocker.
CM Browser – Ad Blocker , Fast Download , Privacy
The CM Browser by Cheetah mobile has a high focus on privacy and security. Adblocking software prevents unwanted popups while the antivirus engine protects you from malicious code. CM Browser lets you download videos you come across while you surf the web and even customize the download location. Downloads are scanned for malware with a background check, ensuring your device stays protected. Once you are done browsing the web and close the CM Browser app, all history data is removed.
Keepsafe Browser: Stay Private with a VPN & Vault
Privacy is important both on your device and when surfing the web. KeepSafe Browser is another app that understands this and includes protection while you browse. Set up a PIN or use your fingerprint to gain access to your browser and to keep unwanted guests from accessing the web. KeepSafe also blocks trackers and advertisers from gathering your information.
