Samsung Internet Now Available to Most Android Users

In recent years, Google has managed to convince device manufacturers, like Samsung and LG, to either reduce the number of proprietary apps that provide the same function as Google's apps - like email, calendar, and, yes, the browser. It has been highly praised by its speed in the past (even from non-Samsung owners) by the community and Samsung is taking notice.

If you own a non-Galaxy Android L and above smartphone, then I recommend you visit the Google Play Store for the Samsung Internet browser beta, version 6.2, and give it a try.

Samsung Internet has several features that make it attractive to users. But this is something that the average person doesn't feel safe doing. Now, the South Korean company has released Samsung Internet beta version v6.2 and interestingly made it available for all Android smartphones running Android 5.0 Lollipop or later. The great thing is that even if you're using beta now, all things will be synced as well in the stable version as well. As soon as you start scrolling down a page with the Samsung browser, the entire display fills with your internet content and you enjoy the internet as it was designed. We're told the update is already out, but is now on a gradual rollout and would take a few days to be made available for everyone. Samsung has even brought out its own browser, called Samsung Internet, out of hiding on its own devices and allows anyone with Pixel and Nexus devices to install it.

By enabling the "Sync with Samsung Cloud" in the settings menu, users will now be able to sync their bookmarks, saved pages, and open tabs across their mobile devices, apart from the Chrome desktop browser.

Much like many of Samsung's proprietary apps, its web browser ships on all Samsung Android devices, alongside Google's suite of apps.

Experimental features: Similar to Chrome flags, enter internet://flags in the URL line of Samsung Internet and enable features such as WebVR, Web Bluetooth, WebGL 2, and many more.
