The best web browsers for Android in 2021

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 because all browsers rely on one of only two rendering engines available on the mobile OS, Firefox' GeckoView and Chrome's Blink. 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.

These are the best chargers for your Samsung Galaxy S21 (since it doesn't come with one)

These are the best chargers for your Samsung Galaxy S21 (since it doesn't come with one)

But what if you do want or need a new charger to go with your new Galaxy S21? We've got you covered with a fine selection.

We've updated this post with a few more apps, which we didn't cover in the initial post.

The 8 best 2FA apps on Android

The 8 best 2FA apps on Android

Your online accounts are much safer when you rely on more than only a password, and that's where two-factor authentication (2FA) apps come in. You can use them to create an extra layer of security for your accounts, requiring you to enter a one-time password (OTP) in addition to your regular credentials when you log in.

The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

The 20 best tablet-optimized apps for Android

Google hasn't had much of an interest in Android tablets since the days of the Motorola XOOM and Android Honeycomb. As a result, most of the company's apps aren't designed with tablets in mind, and third-party applications have largely followed suit. Sure, Android tablets can technically run all Android apps, but many of them have stretched-out layouts that were intended for 6-inch screens. Some even force a portrait orientation (Google Tasks, I'm looking at you).

It can be hard to find applications with well-designed tablet interfaces, especially when the Play Store's only criteria for the "Designed for tablets" label is developers adding a large screenshot to the app listing.
