Tech giant Samsung has made an announcement regarding Samsung Internet, its new version browser. The company announced that the Samsung Internet is available to all new Android handsets.
The company announced its software goals when it released a beta version of Samsung Internet (5.4) accessible on Google devices. Now, the new version, v6 beta version is being announced for any handset running Android 5.0, aka Lollipop, or later versions.
But why Samsung wants to enter the league when it is dominated by Chrome, Firefox and Opera already? Specifically when it is not the time to release an app, having no significant demand.
Samsung Internet is based on Chromium, the open-source project behind Chrome, and gives all that you’d want from a browser. It has a few points of interest that are not discovered anyplace else. For instance, High contrast mode makes reading more convenient(in spite of the fact that this can be seen on most gadgets, if not inside specific browsers), and the ‘features behind flags’ option give you a chance to operate Bluetooth and WebVR straight from the browser. A recess group of people will likewise acknowledge CSS Grid.
Maybe the greatest drawback is the snappy access to content blockers, with a list of extensions incorporated in the settings menu. Samsung’s done a considerable measure of work around there, enabling clients to pick which ad units they see and rendering sites significantly quicker simultaneously. Be that as it may, is it enough to draw Android clients far from their current browsers? Most likely not, but rather the browser’s improvement could assume a supporting part in mobile tech going ahead. In a blog entry, Samsung Internet developer advocate Peter O’Shaughnessy made it clear that Samsung doesn’t “just pull in features from Chromium but actively contributes to them and into web standards.”
