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, [...]

Proxy + Privacy Browser for Anonymous Surfing of Blocked Websites on Android

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.

An interesting Android app called Proxy + Privacy Browser, developed by Smartwebs Innovations, lets you access banned websites all in the comfort of your mobile smartphone. Virtually any site can be unblocked, including many social networking sites, web hosting services, blogging platforms, entertainment sites, and news channels, just to name a few.

Apart from giving you an all-access pass to your favorite sites, the [...]

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 [...]

Silk Browser No Longer Exclusive to Kindle Fire

by: Christine TorralbaJanuary 5, 2012

One of the reasons why the Kindle Fire became overhyped when it was first announced was the Silk Browser feature added by Amazon. Even though the browser was perceived to have a substantial improvement on loading speeds, it quickly lost interest with Android users because it was exclusive to the Kindle Fire. Thankfully, some XDA Developers were able to tinker around with the browser and get it to run on rooted devices.

After being able to use the browser, the end result is actually based on personal preference. But yes, a number of users have mentioned that the browser is by no means any faster than the rest. Many discovered that the cloud-based caching of the browser [...]

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on Droid 3, with some Benchmarks and Screenshots

by: Brandon SobottaDecember 22, 2011

So the other night I got an alpha version of ICS installed on my Droid 3, and I have to say I am impressed. Hashcode has been hard at work since the release of the source code, and  had done some amazing things. I am currently using it for my daily driver and if you don’t mind being a guinea pig  give it a shot yourself. For being an alpha it is very stable, and  many of the main functions work. Here is the list from Hashcode’s blog of what works and what does not.

 Many of the base phone functions are now working. And that includes:

Phone is usable in CDMA and GSM modes for making/receiving calls as well as 3G data. Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS all work HW [...]

Android Firefox Gets Revamped

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 17, 2011

If you’ve already gotten accustomed to the mobile version of Firefox, you will be pleased to know that there are some changes to its Android interface. Mozilla, the company behind the famous browser, released some photos of a futuristic Firefox for Android last Thursday.

At first glance, changes are not that visible and easy to spot. But if you look closely, you’ll see that there are really some differences with the new interface. One of the changes you’ll notice on a standard window is that the tab management has been moved to the right side of the location bar. At the same time, the location bar has been upgraded to rounded corners. A lot of the bigger redesigns of [...]
