The best web browsers for Android

You probably don't think much about the web browser on your phone. No matter what browser you've grown accustomed to using, there are plenty of other options that might improve your experience. Unlike Apple, which requires all third-party browsers to use the Safari rendering engine (and doesn't allow other browsers to be the system default), Google allows any web browser with any engine to be published to the Play Store ⁠— giving Android phones and tablets more options for browsing the web than any iOS device.

In the post, we'll go over some of the best web browsers available for Android.

Google app v8.33 beta gets closer to opening up notes and lists, prepares personalized news and home screen settings, and more [APK Teardown]

The latest Google app update is rolling out to the beta channel, but as usual, you're probably not going to see much in the way of changes after installing it. The version number lept from 8.27 to 8.33, which looks odd, but I assure you, it makes total sense if you think about it. Today we'll be talking about a new page for home screen settings, more about linking services to notes and lists, personalized news settings, and more.

Chrome Beta 69 adds support for notched phones, becomes a media player for Android Go, and more [APK Download]

Chrome 68 hit stable two weeks ago with plenty of important changes, like marking HTTP pages as not secure. It took a little longer than normal, but Chrome 69 has now graduated to beta status. Everyone's favorite web browser has finally reached the sex number.

Going back on topic, this release has the usual mix of interface updates and new developer features. Without further ado, let's get into it.

Even though most sites look fine on the iPhone X without any modification, developers could use a certain meta tag with Apple's 'safe-area-inset' CSS properties to have greater control.

'Toolbox for Google Play Store,' our web browser extension, adds Firefox on Android support and more with v2.0

Back in December, we released a Chrome extension called 'Toolbox for Google Play Store.' It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. A few months later, we released it for Opera, and later Firefox.

But all that time, there wasn't much in the way of new features or major improvements. Today, I'm excited to announce that version 2.0 of Toolbox for Play Store is rolling out to Chrome and Firefox users (Opera should get it in a day or two).
