If you are looking for a new mobile browser because you are getting fed up with Chrome, there are many options, depending on the priority and needs of your features. For Samsung users, the Samsung internet browser is a pretty good alternative. If protecting the privacy of your browsing is a must for you, you will be happy to know that the application offers privacy-focused features. They are now available in the Beta version of Samsung Internet 15, so it will also arrive in the stable version soon.
The latest beta version of the Samsung Internet application has some new features that will help protect your privacy while browsing the web. You now have improved anti-tracking technology to protect you from “fingerprints.” Fingerprinting tracks your network usage to collect more information about you. Many browsers do that for their advertisers, but there are also browsers that are now focused on protecting you and Samsung Internet is one of them.
The “delete browsing data” feature has also been expanded so that you have options on what data you want to delete. This includes browsing history, cache, cookies and site data, passwords, auto-complete data, and location access data. When you activate Secret mode, it will remain in that mode by default. Previously, it reverts to non-secret mode every time you reopen your app, so you have to activate it every time.
In addition to the privacy-focused features, you also get a new search widget that you can access from the home screen. It’s resizable, has a shortcut for voice actions, and looks a lot like the Google search bar. This makes it easy to find items on the web. Lastly, this latest beta version temporarily stores old web pages so you can retrieve them without reloading and exhausting the data. But of course, if you want to delete them, check out the “delete browsing data” function.
Remember that these new features are still in beta, so it may not work as perfectly as expected. The stable version of Samsung Internet 15.0 will be released in late summer.
