Not always Chrome wins the competition of best internet browser on every platform. You can say Google Chrome is the most popular web browser, but when it comes to people needs like Speed Dials, Customization and more, then there are so many other best browsers still available for Android. When I use any browser on my Android, My needs are: Download Manager, Speed Dials, Lite Weight, Faster and more. In Google Play Store, Browser Apps are all free you didn’t need to pay for any browser as you know, but what about the compatibility of modern and earlier web programming languages, Visuals, Flash and many qualities which only a web developer can tell you how best the browser is working on my Android device. Not just these things, I also notice some phone web browser needs that will come true with below listed Apps.
1. CM Browser
Performance Score: 9.5/10, Visuals Score: 9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: Good, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By Cheetah Mobile Inc.
CM browser is the lightest, fastest web browser for Android devices, you may skip using chrome, after you use this browser. After reading some reviews in Play Store, I found more than 80% of users found this browser excellent that none other app will stand in comparison with CM browser. No ads, No Plans, No sponsored only the Professional look and speed makes this browser for me, a better choice. While downloading any media file in CM, it gives you options to play or download. Incognito, Full Screen, Night Mode and more features make this browser, a best choice always.
2. Chrome for Android
Performance Score: 9.5/10, Visuals Score: 10/10, Web Programming Compatibility: Outstanding, Download Manager: No, Incognito: Yes
| | Top Developer | By Google Inc.
Chrome is the most popular web browser, everybody knows and the simplicity of chrome is the only thing I found that makes my web experience simpler and easier. Comparing Chrome for Android with Chrome for Desktop, the major thing Google didn’t provide yet on a mobile platform is Chrome extensions, but in future it may be provide. Some of the features, that none other browser will give you like: Auto detect the link and start your browsing in an app, Displaying all high and low quality web programming visuals, and more.
3. UC Browser
Performance Score: 9.5/10, Visuals Score: 9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 8/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By UCWeb Inc.
In Google Play Store, there are two versions available: UC Browser and UC browser Mini. Both versions works good, but the mini version is only for low specification phones and every web page in mini version will open like a static page, not dynamic. Talking about UC Browser, a another popular mobile browser choice of all smartphone platform users, including Windows Phone, iOS and more. UC has his own unique qualities and features that none other app will give you. Download manager in UC, gives a better downloading experience and also faster download experience.
4. Firefox Browser for Android
Performance Score: 9/10, Visuals Score: 9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 9.5/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By Mozilla
We can’t forget Firefox, the most installed web browsers on desktop platforms. Here on Android, Firefox App design is also flexible that you always feel on your computer’s Firefox. While using this app in my Android, I can’t forget the tabbing experience because its outstanding and you need to try Firefox for Android for once. Mozilla also provided Add-ons for the mobile platform and you can browse and install from Menu> Tools> Add-ons> Browse all Firefox Add-ons.
5. Opera browser for Android
Performance Score: 9/10, Visuals Score: 8.9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 9.4/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes

6. Dolphin Browser
Performance Score: 9.5/10, Visuals Score: 9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 9/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By Dolphin Browser
Oh! Wow, Dolphin looks good and surfing was very smooth that always we need. As you can see on above snapshot, Dolphin has a good bookmark preview at home that I always need in my Chrome. Dolphin gives tabbing experience like a computer browser and that sounds unique but this tabbing was similar to Firefox for Android. You can also use Add-ons in your Dolphin browser, which I didn’t expect yet. Customization option: Themes, is a very pretty feature, I always use and also download more themes from the Dolphin themes store.
7. Maxthon Web Browser
Performance Score: 8.5/10, Visuals Score: 9/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 8.5/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By Maxthon Browser
Maxthon is by default comes with highly customize interface design, and for Android platform somethings are looking customized. It is also known as Maxthon Cloud Browser because of good cloud services provided by Maxthon, where you can sync your browser data to the cloud and restore data to another Maxthon running on another device. Home page Speed dials looking good, but i Didn’t like tabbing. Full screen, Page search, Nigh mode, View mode and many features are available in this browser app.
8. Next Browser for Android
Performance Score: 9.5/10, Visuals Score: 8.5/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 8/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
| | By GO Launcher Dev Team
Next browser app is a little lite comparing with above apps. The big tiles speed dial system(as you can see on above snapshot) remembers my Windows Phone. Performance is good, I can’t say it better because of somethings. Everything in Next app is working as per slide left to right or right to left. In this app, you can also get a RSS view feature which you can open by sliding on home. Tabbing is good and you can also download Browser Extensions from menu> Extensions> add more.
9. ONE Browser
Performance Score: 7/10, Visuals Score: 8.5/10, Web Programming Compatibility: 8/10, Download Manager: Yes, Incognito: Yes
One Browser is a type of basic web browser, I use in my older android devices. There are only some basic features available on the browser and it feels like hell. The only thing why I put one browser in the list of the best is because it has all browser functionality and features which we need in a mobile browser.
