There are many browsers available for Android, several of which serving as mobile counterparts to their desktop alternatives. Opera comes to mind here, as does Firefox. The latter browser has received an update to version 31 and received a number of new features in the process. The top item on the ol' changelog is the ability to reorder homescreen panels (or pages, as I think of them). If you happen to view your reading list more often than bookmarks, for example, then you can now re-arrange the two so that your preferred page comes first.

Another useful update is the new ability to manually refresh synced tabs. When you head to the synced tab area of the browser, you can simply pull down on the page and release to initiate a refresh.

The bulk of the other changes on the list are more technical or aimed at developers. Nevertheless, here's the list. I know it's what the readers want.

  • NEW Ability to re-order existing panels in browser homescreen
