Top Free Android Web Browsers

Nov 15, 2011, 19:02 (0 Talkback[s])

"A web browser is the quintessential desktop application. Everyone needs one, and there is not a desktop Linux distribution around that does not make a web browser available. The same applies to mobile devices running the Android operating system.

"This type of software application is responsible for retrieving and presenting information held on the World Wide Web, a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the internet. Web browsers allow users to view web pages which often contain a mixture of text, images, videos, and other multimedia.

"The web browser segment of the Android market is highly competitive since the vast majority of users demand accessibility to the net from their mobile devices at some point in time. Naturally, Android ships with a default web browser which is fairly competent and will satisfy the needs of many surfers. However, the default app has many shortcomings, and is rather staid. Fortunately, there are a whole raft of web browsers to explore in the Android market offering additional features, better social integration, and real innovation."
