Lets Find The Fastest Android Browser of 2021
1. Opera Touch
This is my favorite browser in this segment. Because it has amazing modern interface and pretty good looking and also I’m having smoothest experience from this browser. Yes it is a new browser from famous Opera. The interface is clean and simple to use, all there is just one button at bottom. But that one button can do most of the jobs that we can expect from a browser. Flow is introduced, it is kinda timeline and online sync tool.

3. CM Browser
CM browser is the best light weight browser in my opinion. Because it’s main theme is to block annoying popup ads and intrusive ads. And also the coolest feature is that there is a in-built video downloader. Hence whenever you watch or play videos, it would show a option to download that video. And it is secure browser too, since they use some best antivirus engine to power up the browser.

Google Playstore link
The default browser in most Android phones. The Chrome browser actually gives faster and smoother experience to the users. And the main advantage of this browser is everything is synced with google, so just sign in with our google account and boom, all the saved passwords, bookmarks, and even we can open tabs from PC. And what’s making even special is, chrome has a AMP viewer which instantly opens a website without even loading it, pretty cool right.

Puffin Web Browser already has the crown for Fastest browser for android in some aspect of ratio. And it’s true, because it has a cloud based algorithm, which helps to load the web page faster than others. And also Puffin developers claim that it can save upto 90% of data when normally browsing. What’s the niche feature that I personally like is, that it has a virtual mouse and keyboard with scroll button, so that we can use a desktop site without any worry.

6. Microsoft Edge
Everyone has to be familiar with Edge browser on the Windows 10. Since it is a product of Microsoft, if we use Microsoft other products very often, this browser comes in handy. Because it has feature, that enables us to interact with the browser in the PC and mobile at the same time and even it shows the timeline. On the PC side without no doubt Edge browser is the fastest but the memory consumption and lack of plugins made Chrome popular. But on the android side they are pretty good with fast scrolling and animation. But only downside is that this is heavy browser so it could run bad in low end phones.

Because it packs pretty powerful features in it like flash player support, html 5 support, no image mode, additional plugins, speed mode etc,. And this app is lesser than 10Mb, can’t believable right. The only annoying thing is the recommended ads in the home screen, other than that this mini browser is pretty cool.

Familiar with Mozilla on PC. Yeah the same developers made this browser for android. Connect with millions of Firefox users. It’s fast and smart. Why I said smart is, because this browser shows the ads according to the user preference and also provides a intelligent search. Everything is customizable from home theme to downloading. This browser has the award for having most add-ons and plugins because this browser is opensource and any developer can create a plugin. Also connect with Firefox account and sync everything.
