Samsung Internet vs Google Chrome: Should you switch?

Samsung Internet vs Google Chrome: Should you switch?

Google Chrome is by default, both literally and figuratively, the web browser of choice on most Android devices. But there are other browsers out there, and one that you may not have bothered blinking at if you don't own a Samsung smartphone is Samsung Internet. "A Samsung browser? No thanks" you might think, but we wouldn't be quick to jerk our knees. While Samsung isn't exactly known for its world-beating software applications, this browser is an odd bright spot in the company's portfolio of also-ran mobile apps.

Samsung Internet has some unique and compelling features that could just get you to switch, provided you're not completely married to Chrome for things like password management.

The best Android browsers with dark mode

The best Android browsers with dark mode

Dark mode was admittedly one of my favorite experimental flags in Chrome for Android. Not only did it force web pages to match my device's dark theme, but it also saved my retinas from catching fire while reading articles at night. So imagine my chagrin when we found out Chrome will be sunsetting dark mode later this year. Luckily, there are other Android browsers in the Play Store that offer their take on dark mode for web content.

Samsung Internet still doesn't fully support Android's Autofill API — what gives?

Samsung Internet still doesn't fully support Android's Autofill API — what gives?

Samsung's Internet web browser is one of the company's few apps that people don't even own Samsung phones actively seek out. It's one of the best browsers available on Android — it offered extensive dark mode support long before Chrome, and has a higher degree of customization than most other similar apps. It also has ad-blocking (which is cool and all, but I hope you can toss us a few bucks if you do use that). However, there's one critical feature that is still missing — full support for Android's Autofill API.

Samsung Internet 12 adds partial Autofill API support and upgrades Chromium engine (APK Download)

Samsung Internet is one of the most popular web browsers for Android, but it has always forced you to keep your login information in Samsung's own cloud storage.

How to block spam notifications and rogue ads on Android

Many mobile apps and games include advertisements, which is perfectly fine (developers have to eat, too), but some applications go a step further. Some apps and sites like to push notifications containing advertisements, and particularly-malicious applications might take over your entire screen when you don't even have the app open.

If you're dealing with annoying spam notifications or full-screen popups, you've come to the right place. This guide will help you track down where the ads (or other unwanted content) are coming from, so you can uninstall the app(s) responsible. If you're receiving lots of notifications from your web browser, we'll show you how to manage them.

Samsung Internet Beta 11.2 adds more customization options and improved tracking protection

Samsung Internet is one of the most popular web browsers available for Android, partially because it's preinstalled on all of Samsung's phones, and partially because it has a few features you don't get with Chrome. Version 11.2 has now hit the beta channel, featuring more customization settings and some improvements to the browser's tracker blocker.

Samsung Internet Browser introduces broader extension support, but only on Galaxy phones

Samsung Internet Browser introduces broader extension support, but only on Galaxy phones

Samsung Internet Browser is one of the few examples of OEM-designed apps that many people want to use over Google's equivalents. Ever since Samsung officially started supporting non-Galaxy phones, the browser has become one of the most popular for Android, thanks to its (minimal) extensions support, excellent dark mode, and fast Chromium-based core. Now the browser is adding support for even more types of extensions, but there are a few catches.
