I'm currently using Samsung browser. It's fast and clean. Also it supports ad blocking.
Samsung Internet Browser - Android Apps on Google Play
Edit: it's better to download from apkmirror.com, because it can be unavailable in play store.
Samsung Internet - uses Chromium, has proper darkmode, has adblocker and tracker blocker extension support, syncs to both Chrome and Firefox, true fullscreen with status bar hidden.
Samsung Internet Browser - Highly underrated browser!!
- Can move the copy/select all pop up menu freely without the menu blocking the screen for selecting the text that you need to copy
- Content blockers. Much more effective in blocking the ads by allowing you to install more than one ad blockers.
- Super fast and smooth browsing experience compared to any other mobile browsers.
Samsung Internet Browser.
Its based on chromium, support adblocking with hosts file extension, private mode with password protection that doesn't display the current tab while switching in recent apps, and to top it all, it has Night Mode.
Don't let the name Deceive you, I was skeptical at first.
If you're trying to decide on a browser may I add Samsung Internet Browser to the options. It's clean, has a proper dark theme that uses black in all web pages, in-built (even promotes) ad blockers, supports extensions, secret mode w/ finger print [non-root only]. I started using it and so far so good. Currently seeing how it would affect battery.
Believe it or not the Samsung browser is on the Play store for all devices. It's been good to me... has extension support, with adblock available.
They also have a beta version.
I meant more the other way. The fact that you can download and use Samsung's browser on any Android device is what makes Android awesome.
Also, hopefully with Treble being enforced on Oreo+, the other way you mention will possible too soon.
It's really fast and smooth on my Galaxy S8+, so it might be due to the aging SoC on the Note 4. If you want to try a good alternative beside Firefox, Samsung Internet works really well too. I am not sure if the Note 4 supports it, though.
Interesting. I'll check that out.
Links for the lazy:
The rewards section is actually located within the Samsung Pay app, you'll need an account. Surprisingly, it's not on the beta, but you can download the "official" app on the playstore, it should be viewable there:
4.3 rating looks pretty good actually.
Some of the 1star reviews are just complaints about the browser coming with the phone, so not being uninstallable.
Then there are low reviews about too much ads... but you could simply install an AdBlocker.
Some others about permissions... honestly, the majority of bad reviews looks like they're made for the sake of complaining or not checking out the features.
Personally, I've switched to using Samsung Internet as my primary browser since with AdBlock, loading speeds and responsiveness is extremely quick. Love the Secret Mode too since it offers biometric support amongst the segregated Bookmarks features.
What don't you feel secure about it? Adblockers should be enough to get rid of the ads you see on the page, and your Disconnect Pro should be able to get rid of trackers. The Adblockers usually have other settings in them, which helps block out some more stuff if you turn them on.
If you want more security, you can even run Samsung Internet from inside of the Secure Folder too.
So just out of curiosity, which part of the app worries you?

Samsung Internet Browser is what I use on my 6T! I love the night mode, and I've never had any problems with battery usage while using it. It's also got extension support so plenty of customization options ...
Samsung Browser is the best Android browser in the market hands down. Night mode, adblock extension support, and smoother than Chrome.
Custom Tabs API seems to accept package name, so hopefully that should be as simple as using "org.mozilla.firefox" instead of "com.android.chrome".
Samsung Internet browser also seems to support custom tabs, and also supports ad blockers, I did not test how it works though.
It only works with certain Samsung phones.
Or you could just download Firefox for Android and install the uBlock Origin add on inside Firefox. This will work with nearly all Android phones, not just certain Samsung phones.
Since I've updated my stock browser to Samsung Internet for Android i've had a superb experience!
Everything is fast and, if you download Adblock Fast the browser will block ads!
I know a simple way of avoiding all of this. If you are on an android phone [link] this program not only blocks ads on the web but also in games programs etc. Also if you are on Android install Samsung browser [link]
You might ask why would I want Samsung's browser but it allows you to install ad block plus to prevent ads that get through.
I'm not really sure if you're phone's are really listening but this will help.
Hmm you know I always thought it was available on every device but maybe it's not?
Is this the link you tried?: [link]
Use Samsung Internet Browser + Adguard Content Blocker
I don't have an issue with needing to go to the top with a button push mostly because of how fast your can scroll with a quick flick. Alternatively if you need it in the web browser you can just reload the page or download a different browser like Samsungs.
I use Samsung Internet as my browser and if I click Request Desktop site, it stays in desktop mode until I switch back to the mobile version. [link]
In terms of unofficial reddit apps, have you tried Reddit is fun? Imo, its the only app with a layout that is most similar to the desktop version. [link]
It seems equal or slightly better to me. It's definitely worth trying out.
Samsung Internet Browser
Samsung Internet Browser Beta
I saw no update on the Play Store (updated Oct 25) or the Galaxy Apps store (6.0.02.0). So I downloaded the APK. Didn't work. Cleared data and restarted. Didn't work.
Uninstall the updates and go back to 6.0. Clear data and restart. Reopen and check settings, there's an update button. Click it. Go to Galaxy Apps. Update. Installs 6.0.02.0 again. Check, no promos. Clear data and restart. No promos. Clear data and restart again before reinstalling the APK again. Redownload, reinstall, recheck. Splash screen telling me about content blockers again. Still no promotions.
I'm out of ideas. Reinstalled, tried versions on Play, Galaxy Apps, and APK, cleared cache and data, forced stopped, reset device... nothing.
Does it matter what carrier I use? I'm on Verizon in the U.S.
I use it because it's basically just Chrome (Chromium) with AdBlock and (proper) reader mode.
Try it and see if you like it (I don't really like Samsung much in other remarks but there browser is cool).
With the phone not in the Gear VR, use the Samsung Mobile Internet browser to visit the page that has the tour link. Start the tour and then put the phone into the Gear VR. It will continue to show the tour using the Samsung Internet browser. This all assumes that the tour is a webvr tour that's running on the Web page. Don't expect a webvr experience to run as smoothly as an app/apk designed to run in the Gear VR.
I assume that today's Galaxy phones have the Samsung Mobile Internet browser installed by default. If you don't have it, get it here at the Play Store. [link]
It's not the same browser that runs in the Gear VR. The way Samsung (or Oculus) designed things, whatever you're watching outside of VR using the Internet browser continues to play in VR using the VR browser when you put the phone into the Gear VR. The main benefit of that is the Home Screen never appears when you put the phone into the Gear VR. You go right to the Web page you were viewing when you didn't have the headset on.
To add to the confusion, there's now the new Oculus Internet browser accessible from the Oculus Home screen. That's the one with the better image quality. That one plays no role in the steps described earlier.
You can download it if it's not already on your phone, I think. Play store link here. Also, the mobile app for Firefox lets you install extensions so you can actually get Unlock Origin.
Can you download this? If not here is an APKMirror. It requires at least android Lollipop but it's worth a try.
Yes. Can download from the Play Store: [link]
With browser open putting into the GearVR will launch Samsung Internet VR with that webpage or video open.
This is the one that updated. [link]
"This update is available for Galaxy S7 Edge, S7, Note5, S6 Edge+, S6 Edge, S6, S6 Active, Note4, S5, S5 Neo, S5 Active, S5 Sports, S5 LTE A, Note3, S4, S4 Duos, S4 Active, S4 LTE A, A7, A8, A5x, A7x, and A9x with Android 5.0 and above."
It should work with your phone then.
Google didnt do anything to the Samsung browser what are you talking about? [link]
You can download the Samsung Browser from the App store.
>Change my mind.
Samsung Internet Browser, version 7.4.00.70 released on Aug 19th is based upon the Chromium version 59.
According to the official Chrome Milestone Calendar, Chromium 59 was released* on May 30th, 2017.
To give context, the latest stable version of Chromium - 70, was released* on Oct 16th, 2018.
That means your browser's codebase is about 504 days or 1 year and 4 months behind.
Imagine all the critical bugfixes that happened in that time, all the bugs in websites that malicious actors may circumvent but which are already fixed in modern browsers.
* I excluded minor security patches which sometimes happen weekly and the release of Chrome, neither of which release dates are documented as good as the base, Chromium, itself.
Samsung made their browser available to the Play Store
Use this chrome extension on PC to sync your bookmarks between Chrome and Samsung Internet. It has night mode, Supports adblock addons.
Use Samsung Internet, there'll a float button which allows you to view the videos in fullscreen, there won't be black bars.
Try to install this [link]
It's on the Play Store. [link]
Use Samsung Browser. Open it. Click on 3-dot menu. Go to extensions. Enable Video assistant.
Swipe left/right to move forward/backward. Swipe up/down on left side of screen to increase/decrease brightness. Swipe up/down on right screen to increase/decrease volume. Lock button to lock orientation. It also has pop up video player option. This video player won't work on websites that only use their own video players. Otherwise It will work on most sites.
Here is screenshot of video player from,
Samsung browser vs. Chrome.
Samsung browser has other good options like ad blocking & night mode, disable tracking etc. Overall it's a very good browser to replace chrome on Android.
Important note: Chinese browser apps like UC browser also has good video player. But, Don't use UC browser or other Chinese browsers like CM, Apus browser. They ask unnecessary permissions and doesn't respect user privacy at all.
It has it's own video player. And you can install adblocker add on like Adgaurd content blocker to block ads. Also scrolling is smooth.
(In case if you are confused because of "VPN warning", don't worry. Blokada works locally on your phone and doesn't change your IP address or send your data.)
It's on the play store:
Tremenda basura de periodico. Yo acabo de visitar al site de El Nuevo Dia por ambos movil y mi pc y no encuentro esos pop-ups rogando que te subscribas, pero uso ad-blockers en todos mis devices asi que es posible que eso lo este bloqueando. Puede que a ti te hayan incluido en un programa piloto para pedir que te subscribas mas agresivamente, quizas por que consumes mucho contenido en su site.
Lo primero que puedes hacer es clear your browser's cache para eliminar tracking cookies, etc, para que te quiten la marca si es que te pusieron en un programa piloto. Sin embargo, esto no va a ser una solucion permanente. Lo que si puede ser una solucion permanente es ad & tracking blocking.
En PC es cuestion de instalar un adblock de extension en chrome o firefox como uBlock Origin [Chrome ó Firefox].
Si estas es en móvil hay maneras block ads & tracking.
En Android: puedes instalar el browser de Samsung (esta basado en chromium y es bastante bueno, no te asustes); y una vez lo instales baja el adblock para ese browser.
Ve a los settings de Adblock Plus, luego a more blocking options y vas a ver la opcion de eliminar anti-ad blocking y disable tracking. Esas dos deberian estar checked. Y ya, le das enable al extension de adblock en el samsung browser y no deberias tener ads ni otras pendejaces cuando navegas el internet.
Asegurate de siempre escoger el usar un browser externo en aplicaciones como Facebook para que abra los links en el Samsung browser. (Desinstala otros browsers, y dale clear al cache de chrome en el app manager de android para asegurarte que solo uses el Samsung Browser o Brave si eliges usar ese.)
En adicion a el samsung browser otra alternativa es Brave que tambien esta basado en chromium y tiene ad y tracking block integrado.
Ahora, si tienes iOS pues la cosa es diferente. Ahi tienes que buscar Safari Content Blockers en el app store. Como no tengo un iPhone desde hace casi un año no se cuales son los mejores content blockers, pero en principio son todos muy similares.
Aqui hay un thread del subreddit de apple que ofrecen recomendaciones de los mejores adblockers. (safari content blockers)
This is a little off topic but if you're on a S4 or newer Galaxy device, Samsung recently updated their browser to support adblocking. It stops Youtube ads dead on their mobile site.
Not on Android 6.0? Get the adblocker APK from here and sideload it.
there are adblock extensions for the samsung internet browser, there is kiwi browser which blocks ads per default, there is firefox and its extensions, there aree things like adblock and dns66 on f-droid... none of those are perfect, and none of those are as good as my firefox on desktop, but it's a good start.
here the links:
brave browser [link]
Just download it directly from the Google play store.
You don't need a Samsung to use it [link]
Samsung Internet (which is actually a really nice browser and runs on non-Samsung devices) accepts ad-blocker plug-ins, and there are many in the store. I'm currently using Adblock Fast with it, mainly because it has the word "fast" in its name. Am satisfied.
Yandex Browser also supports the same ad-blocking plug-ins. I believe it's a fork of Samsung's browser. The company's Russian if that matters to you.
TugaBrowser and YuBrowser are Snapdragon-optimized forks of Chromium that have built-in ad-blocking, but neither have been updated in months.
Firefox Focus and Brave also have ad-blocking.
What do you mean by share ?
Anyone can download from the play store.
Uhhh....because I like it?
Samsung internet browser with adblock plus. And firefix focus as default.
I use it on Xiaomi Phone. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sec.android.app.sbrowser&hl=en
Since you just need fast news
you can visit [link] from a browser which supports dark/night mode. Also add the website shortcut to your home screen.
Samsung Browser is pretty good and has an extension to sync with desktop chrome.
Looks like it is Samsung browser.(update it if there are any updates available. After that open It. Go to any website. (Let's say you are on google website). Now click 3 vertical dots. Go to settings > Privacy > delete personal data.
Something I found from YouTube. [link]
No reason. It's just my "daily driver". I think nonbeta do just fine.
I go to the Play Store and search for Samsung Internet. I get to Samsung Internet Browser. That's right so far, right? At the bottom of Read More, it says version 220.127.116.11, updated September 8. No good.
So I use a PC and hope to send it to my phone. I go to the Store Page. I look, and it says it was updated October 25. Good! I try to install it. Can't. No eligible devices for some reason, even if I downgraded first to 18.104.22.168. No good.
So I download the 6.2.01.12 APK. I install it. I load it. It welcomes me and tells me about content blockers. I click Start. I check the menu. Nothing is there. So I use app settings to Clear Data. I restart my phone. I check again. No good.
So I download the 7.0.00.21 APK and do it again. Clearing data and cache. Resetting phone. Checking menus. No good.
I have now used stable versions 22.214.171.124, 6.0.02.0, 6.2.01.12, 7.0.00.21 and beta version 6.2.01.7. I have updated using the Play Store and the Galaxy Apps store and APK downloads. I have cleared everything to clear, restarted more times than I have in the entire time I've had this phone, I have checked Pay and Promotions and Bixby for reference to it, and I'm telling you, it isn't available for me. Maybe it's a staggered release. Maybe it's server side. Maybe it's my carrier, or my zip code, or how long I've been with Pay, or how many points I already have, or just dumb luck, but it's not available. I wish it were. I spent long enough today on this. But it isn't.
Samsung Internet supports Daydream
Use the Samsung internet browser. Faster than chrome. Smooth. Ad free. No bugs, ever. Support for adblockers.
Here you go [link]
Compatible with my Nexus 5 [link]
Is this the Samsung browser?
I think you can download the internet browser from Samsung on the google play store. Hopefully the beta version or regular version is compatible with your device.
you need two things to fix this
1. Samsung internet
2. Adblock Plus for Samsung internet
(remember to enable Adblock plus in samsung internet)
And to remove this crappy scam just close the tab/webpage
Samsung Internet Browser can sync Chrome bookmarks
If you're on Android, [link]
Download Samsung Internet Browser, it's a good browser and you can install a built-in ad-blocker. (no root required)
If for whatever reason you like Samsung internet more than chrome (I have literally never found anyone who believed that to be true), it's on the appstore. And if you want to use Samsung pay? Guess what's also on the appstore.
It's not a meme, its just true lol. Google phones come with the least amount of bloat (if you can really call gapps bloat) possible. Many people (including myself) prefer this because then you can pick and choose what you have on your phone without being forced to keep it. Your original comment said that you didn't understand why someone wouldn't want a "feature packed" phone, and it's because we don't want bloat on our phones that we won't use.
Edit: my bad, apparently Samsung pay is only compatible with Samsung devices.
Or you can just get it from Google Play. It's compatible with the verizon model now.
