Best Browser for P500 Optimus One
Whats a smartphone without a data connection? The browser is perhaps the most important app on a smart phone, and the same holds for android. With so many browsers available in the Android market, its easy for one to be confused when it comes to choosing a browser since he default browser might not be enough for all of us. So I though I'll start a thread and comment on the different browsers I've tested on my phone. Eventually, I hope to cover all browsers. So here goes...
: The default browser isn't too bad I guess, since we don't often see full featured default browsers for any phone or OS , so I guess the Android browser is enough for those who don't do much browsing
. But it doesn't support tabbed browsing, though it tries to make up for it by allowing to switch between different windows without leaving the browser, so we almost get the experience of tabbed browsing.
: Perhaps the most popular browser across several platforms, and light on memory
, Opera Mini is bound to be the first alternative browser everyone looks at. Opera Mini was never designed for smart phones, it was originally meant for feature phones that find it difficult to process large amounts of web content. For Opera Mini, the web page is actually processed by Opera servers and compressed before sending it to our phone, making it blazing fast and helps reduce our data usage
and the like, so if u frequently download files from file sharing sites like 4shared, then Opera Mini is not for you.
Opera Mobile has an additional data saving option, similar to the Opera Mini.
But at about 20MB, Opera Mobile is heavy on internal memory, and though it can be installed to SD, 20MB for a browser is just too much
. But if you love the Opera interface and speed dial, then the Opera Mobile is worth looking into.
Please comment and share about your favorite browser. And please point out any mistakes if any.
More browsers coming up soon....
P.S. Please make this a sticky
