Have you ever browsed around a site and wondered, "what's the deal with this place?" According to a couple of tweaks to Chrome Canary, it looks like the browser will soon be able to answer that question with a quick click. It's a feature that was spotted in canary builds of Microsoft Edge recently, also based on the Chromium project.

Mozilla wants to make its password manager obsolete with Firefox 93 Beta (APK Download)

The last few Firefox releases haven't been too exciting, but Firefox 93 has at least one neat new feature in tow that might help you cut down on the amount of apps you have installed on your phone.

Chrome for Android may gain a permanent Desktop View switch

Chrome for Android may gain a permanent Desktop View switch

Most websites (like this one) adjust their formatting automatically to account for screens of different size and density. But sometimes the formatting goes weird, and you just gotta pretend you're on your beige Dell from 2003. According to a recent patch in the Chromium Gerrit, Chrome on Android might be getting an option to toggle the "Request Desktop Site" option on a permanent basis.

Chrome will nag you to stop visiting sites without HTTPS

Chrome will nag you to stop visiting sites without HTTPS

We may not like everything Google plans for its browser and the open web (FLOC, Manifest v3, and Chromium's dominance come to mind), but there's one thing everyone can agree on: Staying secure on the web is always important. Google and other browser makers have long been pushing webhosters and website owners to use the encrypted, more secure HTTPS standard over HTTP, and they've already managed to win more than 90% of regularly visited websites over. To get hold of the rest, Google wants to make HTTP sites an even less appealing place to visit starting in Chrome 94, slated to arrive in September.

The best web browsers for Android in 2021

There is an incredible number of browsers available on Android, but there are only a few that are actually worth considering.

That's why the only thing you're gaining from using another browser is a slightly different interface. But some developers have added genuinely useful features on top of what Mozilla and Google offer, and that's why we're here, helping you separate the wheat from the chaff.

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

Mozilla retires its Firefox Lite browser, probably because it wasn't actually all that 'lite'

Mozilla retires its Firefox Lite browser, probably because it wasn't actually all that 'lite'

It's all too easy for applications to grow bloated after years of updates. While extra functionality isn't usually harmful, weighing an app down with useless features defeats the whole purpose if it's designed with performance in mind. Firefox Lite was intended to be a stripped-down version for select markets, but as of June 30, Mozilla has stopped supporting it.
