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

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.
