In my opinion only it's much better than Chrome on the Android phone operating system. I still use Chrome no offense but this is my secondary option in case of an emergency. Not all browsers are equal but this app rocks! I prefer this over anything else at the moment. I could also sync this to my Samsung Odyssey sometimes which is awesome! I like that and that's a cool feature. Overall, it's a good app and I recommend it.

My go to browser, even on non-Samsung devices. Really love the bottom bar gestures and the quick access page layout in particular. One of the recent updates changed the 'find in page' behavior to make it scroll between different hits, which is, imo, a really clunky implementation, especially on larger web pages. The up/down arrow keys on the bottom right occasionally stop working, and waiting 4 seconds in some cases for the scroll animation to zoom past gets tiresome.

I've always used Google Search for my home page. This latest beta version , instead of showing just the google search bar, delivers news stories and other things I'm not interested in, including videos! I've searched and tried all google and browser settings and have found no way of eliminating this feature. update: issue resolved. My fault as there were new settings I was unfamiliar with.
