Alternative Browsing on Android - The Best Browsers

I'm back yet again to bring the latest to the forum, and this time it's about browsing on Android. This is pretty much a follow up from previous post where I segment the Play Store after a lot of testing apps. Last time we covered (Alternative Messaging on Android) & (Gaming on Android, The BEST Titles you can own) The latter will be getting an update soon. I will go through my top five and make a list out of all the other browsers just in case you all want to check them out. Shall we dive in!!



ICS Browser + is by far my favorite browser so far, not that I don't have about 2 others. It's actually the stock browser from the Galaxy Nexus only enhanced. Has some quick controls that can either get in the way when browsing or be very handy. Along with true full screen which so many other browsers still don't have. The speed on this browser is second to non, even beating out Chrome IMO.



I actually think Dolphin might be the most advance browser on Android. It's a wonder there's no paid version. Take a look at the features.

This browser only made it in the top five because it's made by Google and because of Tab Syncing, if it were not for those two things this lagging Browser would be at the bottom of the list. Nuff said.

Now for an experimental browser that's not even on the play store. HOLO BROWSER


Download HoloWeb APK from here. As of yet it is not available on the Play Store.

I won't use a screenshot just give it a try. I can't really seem to get use to it yet, it's very strange.



This was easily in the top five. It reminds me of a Samsung innovative browser, you know- it floats. Kinda like their video player, only this actually works unlike other browsers that tried to mimic it. With that said give it a try.

Those are my top five in no particular order, I love all of them. Now if you have already used these and looking for another browser, check this list out, go crazy, try them all.
