Samsung Internet browser version 6.2 is now stable and comes with a number of new features and enhancements.
The browser features ‘Night’ and ‘High Contrast’ modes. ‘Night’ mode will reduce the light and make the background dark, while ‘High Contrast’ mode will make the background dark with the text white and bright so it’s easier to read in the dark.
Additionally Samsung Internet has an updated content blocker section within the ‘Settings’ menu, which Samsung promises will save privacy, battery life and data consumption. It also uses a tracking blocker, which will stop the websites that utilize trackers that log activity across a variety of sites.
Samsung Internet can also sync bookmarks from other browsers. This means if a user utilizes Chrome on desktop they can share their books, via an extension on Chrome, to Samsung Internet. Along with the extension, users can also enable ‘Sync with Samsung Cloud’ in the settings menu to allow syncing from bookmarks, saved pages and open tabs from all of the user’s Android devices.
The browser is available on Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher, and can now be downloaded on the Play Store or the Galaxy Apps store.
