Did you know that there are tiny, invisible pixels hidden on a lot of websites, nefariously tracking your every movement across the web? Well there are. It's not really dangerous, just kind of rude and annoying. The newest version of Samsung's Android browser, one of the few tools that it shares with the rest of the Android world, detects and blocks this practice. So sayeth the changelog!
Most of us are probably using Chrome on Android — after all, it's pre-installed and syncs everything from active tabs and history to passwords and bookmarks between devices. However, the Play Store is filled with dozens of alternative browsers, and Samsung's Internet app is perhaps the best you can find. It bundles a ton of features not available in Chrome in its settings menu, many of which are surprisingly helpful. Samsung Internet 15 is now out of beta, and while you won't see any visual refreshes here, it does include several security enhancements.
Most of Samsung's Android apps are only available on its own devices. However, when the company uploaded a Beta version of the browser to the Play Store, it was marked as compatible with Nexus/Pixel devices too. Now the non-beta Samsung Browser is getting the same treatment.
