Download Samsung Internet Browser App:-
It’s simple, does the job and it’s one I’ve used for years (and not just because it’s the Internet Explorer 6 of Samsung devices). It’s by far the best Android browser… and I’ve tried them all. My only complaint (if you can call it that) is the planet icon. The universal symbol for the internet has always been the Earth, for world-wide web. Adding Saturn makes no sense at all. I really wish there was a Windows 10 version of this app. I would love to be able to synchronise my desktop browsing with my mobile.
I enjoy the night mode feature, and other customizable options that Crome mobile continually refuses to offer (e.g. the ability to hide the status bar for a truly immersive experience). The only downside so far is the night mode slightly differs from a standard amoled dark mode in that it severely dims the screens backlight for text and images, even with the brightness is set to max. This can be an issue if you want a dark mode even when you are not in a dark room.

I am the person that really do review all the terms and conditions (really?! Boi) and I am surprised that its against the terms of condition to spam, claw and reverse engineering (boi, that’s why I use qpython)… anyways, I am grad that they provide a chance for the customers to opt-out of the online tracking (tho it is required by law) Tho, the overall experience is great … I mean it’s only so many competitions
This is a great browser with fast speed and useful tools. The interface is friendly and usable with one hand. Do not pay attention to negative reviews, none of them are true. There are no ads in the app and you can use content blocker such as adblock to remove ads on the web.
Update: The new update on August make the browser even faster and snappy. I fell in love with this browser bc it has Night Mode. They almost perfected Night mode which turns all websites dark for browsing at night which helps reduce eyes strain. I never run into any issues with this browser and I don’t know why many people complained they did. Stop using ancient phones and you will not run into issues people. This is the best browser ever on mobile. Keep up the outstanding work Samsung.
Large files do not resume downloading after pausing. Allow us to delete pre saved bookmarks that came with the phone. The screen times out after a while if watching videos. Should be smart enough to know when videos are playing so as to not timeout. Should come with built-in ad blockers. Everything else is great, reader mode, night mode are all great features.
WORK’S GREAT ON MY SAMSUNG GALAXY A3 PHONE. SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S. SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB A .AND I REALLY LIKE THE FEATURES OF THE APP I.E. THE WEBSITE DATA CLEANER FOR GETTING RID OF ANY WEBSITE I HAVE VISITED I.E. DATA WHICH IF YOU DIDN’T HAVE THIS FEATURE THE SITE’S DATA ETC WOULD STILL BE THERE. IT STOPS WEBSITES FROM TRACKING YOU ETC…….
Unfortunately the Samsung browser uses Google or like browsers. Google cannot be trusted so where do we go from here? What browser can we trust? And even then it seems these apps which are not needed keep running in the background pre-installed ready from the day you buy the phone to spy on you till you get a new phone.
Browser is fantastic in almost all respects. However I have two issues with the Browser. Firstly there’s a glitch when entering and exiting in full screen mode. Secondly the browser’s media player features do not support some video playbacks. If these two issues can be fixed I’ll then update my rating for this app to 5 stars. Thanks.
It’s as if it’s software made by Samsung it is inevitable it will be bloated. Newest update shows this with the new ‘Quick Suggest’. Hey I didn’t realize that people wanted suggested ads for something similar to what is being displayed in the browser, and I don’t want to have to keep declining the ‘service’. Awful. Is this what Bixby is now? IDK as I’ve completely disabled it, and now this browser is also.
In today’s fast hurry hurry up world there’s multiple apps for anything & everything your mind can imagine. Some are beyond great others are complicated & then end up being worthless. This app is alright
I’ve come to be quite fond of this browser from my initial 1 star rating. Although not possible to uninstall (Google how to remove package) I find it very neat that it has quick shortcut access from the address bar, dark mode (although not fully functional) and a floating quick-meny shortcut key. On the downside I have found that radio streaming is not working (on sr.se) and that sometimes pages do not fully load causing the browser window to bounce to the top. All in all a good browser if you want an alternative to Chrome.
Really one of the best browsers and I’ve tried them all. Chrome is too heavy and laggy, Firefox felt like it was missing important features, Opera was lacking everything and all it was trying gimmicks and so on. This is simple, lite and to the point. Its got many extensions to choose from, had the notifications from Facebook (if you don’t was the FB app) like Chrome does. It has anti tracking and ad blocks and just works perfectly without any problems.
U just ruined this app by making the scrolling up and down the pages creep along. Idiotic. Try to scroll down and it just seems like its stuck in mud. Are all of u people who work on this app retared? All i want to do is scroll down the page and have it reflect the speed of my finger. Like it use to. Thanks for f-ing it up. Great job.

Not sure not email or text but surfs cool enough.. just gotta find a way to not get hacked.. .constant… hackers and the unsecure walls between users fall shy and users fall into each other..darnnses it
This with the AdGuard extension works great! No Ads, just got to remember to update the blocking rules every so often or else some will slip through. I also like the browser’s video player since I hate being forced to use embedded video players. Good stuff 🙂
great app, fast, and I have tried many, usually get turned off with Google spying or too many ads, or clunky page rendering, everything works smoothly with the app and web pages load perfectly. people who complain about the ads do not know how to use the ad blocking features. really like the night view.
Yep, Another App to plug up my phone. This app hasn’t been updated in a yr. So why are you telling me I need to update when you haven’t.
For some reason when I am using desktop mode, the words do not appear in the search bar when I type them, but rather above the search bar, making things disorienting. Is this happening on every phone or just a bug that is happening on my phone alone? If it is just a bug on my phone, can someone tell me how to fix it? Otherwise this app is great.
A few things are missing to make this browser really great: 1. An option to set a homepage that opens on app startup. I don’t want to see the last page I visited! if it’s important I’ll save it to my bookmarks. 2. An option to always browse secretly. 3. An option to change YouTube resolution to HD. 4. A Paste&Go option in the address bar when having a URL in the clipboard. 5. A “Recently Closed Tabs” section under History. Until then I’ll keep using Firefox as my default browser…
Idk yet, too soon. I had an extremely horrible, terrible virus on my phone and had to switch. So far, I like it!! Thank you for providing a new browser.
Works very well on S8+, fast and easy to use. Latest update (Aug.30) added blackmail alerts for garbage ads. One more and going back to Firefox. Minus two stars.
I love using it. It makes it easier for me. But it stinks that it kicks you out when your low on space on your phone, I wish it didn’t do that that. Other than that it work’s great.

Easily one of the best browsers I’ve ever used. Simple and easy to use most browsers make you search for settings but I’ve noticed with Samsung browser the settings and everything else to find is right there no searching needed which made my life easier
Can’t translate websites which are in other languages. Other browsers would do this automatically. Can’t open a webpage into private mode. Cannot skip or see how long left is on a youtube video advert, you could do this before.
Words Appear Above, Not In, Search Bar: Fix It! Go on Google’s website. Type a search and it appears above the search bar box, not inside the search bar box where it should be. This just happened with this new update. It needs fixing. Also, when you select Settings, the screen flashes before it goes to Settings. Once in Settings menu, you cannot use the the arrow at top left to return to previous screen within Settings. Instead it kicks you out to your Homepage.
Very solid browser for a big G alternative. My only complaint would be the sensitivity of the zoom feature when streaming video and the home and tab slide bar not going away. Outsjde of the it would be a 5.
Direct download is very usefull when i am short on phone data. I do not get adds from the browser. Only the websites. But app blocker works with this browser so problem solved.
AWESONE-NESS HAHA this browser let me download video on facebook and youtube wOw!!! Keep it up! Samsung i gave you 10 rating if only there is haha.. My best browser ever☺
