Is Google aiming for a UI makeover with a radial-style Android menu?

by: Bams SadewoAugust 10, 2012
In mobile devices, a menu bar that permanently sits either on top of bottom of the display can really rob users of their precious screen real estate. This is something that has apparently been lingering on Google’s mind, as well, and the company has applied to patent the use of a radial-style menu in the Android browser and Chrome.

Firefox 14: Faster, smarter, safer Web browser for Android

by: Paul NuñalJuly 13, 2012

Firefox had been enjoying its share of success in the past few years until Google Chrome came along and took some of the spotlight. But, this doesn’t mean that Firefox is down and out as there are still millions of loyal users using the world-famous browser.

When it comes to the mobile version, web browsers are not that different from their desktop counterparts. Some of the famous mobile web browsers are Dolphin Browser HD, Chrome for Android, and lot more. Firefox, on the other hand, is still sporting the beta tag and Mozilla hasn’t released the official stable version. Despite Firefox’s shortcomings, the latest version, Firefox 14, is finally making its way to the [...]

Build your own Android browser, courtesy of Maxthon

by: Bogdan PetrovanApril 28, 2012

“This is Android, after all, and Android is about having options.” This is how the post on XDA-Developers from where I picked this story ends. To this I add – Amen! Android is all about options, the freedom of choice, the freedom to fiddle with everything, until everything is just right.

On the same lines, Android is about being able to customize your browser so it bares your name of choice, your own custom icon, or your hand-picked splash screen. Gimmicky? Maybe, but cool all the same.

Actually, we are talking about the Maxthon Android browser, a solid alternative to both the stock browser and worthier contenders such as Dolphin. We reviewed Maxthon for Android [...]

Opera Mini 7: Smoother, faster, and improved browser for Android

by: Alvin YbañezApril 19, 2012

Your Android phone carries pre-installed applications called stock apps. Your phone carries a stock keyboard, a stock camera app, and a stock web browser. But, if your Android phone already has the required stock applications, why would most users prefer third-party applications on their phones? The answer is simple. Third-party apps offer more enhanced features compared to stock apps. One of the famous third-party apps for web browsing is the Opera Mini web browser.

The newest version of Opera Mini will let you enjoy a newer and faster browsing experience on the web. The updated browser features support for OpenGLES hardware acceleration, more RTL text support, [...]

by: Paul NuñalMarch 26, 2012

The Web is a fun place to learn new information, socialize, interact, and play games to kill the time. However, there are certain Internet areas that are limited to access, or blocked by either a corporate firewall or banned country-wide.

Dolphin Sonar: Control Your Browser With Just Your Voice

by: Bogdan PetrovanMarch 1, 2012

We asked and you answered. According to our February poll, Dolphin is the favorite Android browser of our readers. And there are plenty of reasons to love Dolphin, from the blazing-fast navigation, to the intuitive way to access bookmarks and the support for add-ons.

Another cool thing about Dolphin is how easy it is to control your browsing experience using nothing but gestures. Being a Webkit-based browser, Dolphin naturally supports the swipes and zooms that we all know and love, but the app also lets you  assign custom gestures to websites, for quick access. Want to go to Facebook? Just scribble an “f”. It’s easy and fun, and it’s the kind of simplicity-oriented thinking [...]
