The best browsers you can get on Android

Vivaldi recently announced the launch of the beta version of its Android browser.

The desktop version of the browser has become well-known as a favourite among some power users due to features such as Speed Dial - which allows users to select certain favourite websites from the start page.

I'm using Firefox on Android as I type this. Waiting for Chredge to become available.

As much as I love Firefox on PC, not a fan of it on Android. Beats Opera though.
It's the only one I could find that properly deals with large font size settings. Haven't tried it on the PC in years.

+1 for Internet Explorer
I gave it a try for a few months. It's just...not good. Got tired of it asking me to search for the URL it cannot open. Ridiculous.

Ridiculous and a shame.

Eh?

Internet Explorer was discontinued and replaced by Edge in 2015.

Kiwi Browser does not even get a mention?

I really like Chrome but being forced into AMP links is pushing me towards a new browser. It's ridiculous that you can't disable it

I'm surprised not to see Kiwi Browser, but I started using Vivaldi as soon as it came out as it's my desktop browser as well.
