When it comes to browsing the web on your smartphone, there are many, many options to choose from, especially when using an Android device.
Luckily for Android users, the most powerful Internet browsers are on the cheaper side of the Google Play store, so cheap that they're free.
For Apple users, Safari is really your best option since, unlike Android, you're not able to change the default browser, and some of the more popular browsers don't have that attractive "free" price tag.
There are many choices on Android, however. Google released its popular Chrome browser but only to those running the 4.0 or higher version of their operating system, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.
Many newer phones, especially the 4G/LTE phones, should come with Ice Cream Sandwich or be receiving the update throughout the summer. Chrome is as sleek and speedy as its desktop counterpart but does not yet have the ability to use extensions.
Mozilla also brought its own popular Firefox to the Android world, touting synchronized browsing from the computer to the phone. Like Chrome, everything is connected, like browsing history and bookmarks.
Among all of these choices, Dolphin HD really knocks out the competition. It brings with it easy-to-use gestures that you can program to do nearly whatever you want. There are also various add-ons that can optimize your browsing experience, like my personal favorite the Desktop Switcher.
Desktop Switcher allows you to switch from the mobile version of a website to the desktop version of the site instantly. It makes to navigating certain sites without an adequate mobile version much easier.
All of these various browsers have their strengths and weaknesses but get the main task done with incredible speed and reliability.
Have you found a browser you like on Android? Or do you just use the stock browser that came on your phone? Sound off in the comments.
