Samsung Internet Browser for Android is a simple, fast, and reliable web application for your Android smartphones and tablets developed by Samsung.
It is based on the open-source Chromium project but ensures more secure Web browsing with Secret Mode, Biometric Web Login and Contents Blocker.
Most of the code differences to the standard Chromium code is the support of Samsung specific devices, such as Gear VR and biometric sensors.
Samsung Internet Browser for Android allows 3rd party apps to provide filters for Content Blocking, making browsing safer and more streamlined.
It will warn you before you can view known malicious sites to prevent you from visiting websites which may try to steal your data.
The URL bar redesign now makes room for helpful badges. A badge for allowing quick access to Reader Mode. Also, an Add To Homescreen button which allows installation of Web Apps in a single tap.
