As far as web browsers go, we know about very few of them, apart from Google Chrome. There are some alternative web browsers for your Android phone, which are secure, fast and reliable. You need a browser which is smooth and crisp and has features which are better than your stock browser. Some third-party browsers offer really good functionality and have an excellent user interface. Check out these 7 alternative web browsers which you are not widely known but are being used by those in the know as their go-to browsers:
According to users, Lightning is just like lightning– it is a light and has a simple interface. It’s an open-source browser and offers security and a smooth browsing experience. The toolbars are hidden which make for better screen viewing. It may be a little unexciting when it comes to features, but it has all the options that a basic browser should have. It takes up only a little of your memory with its 200KB size. Privacy and security are the main concerns when you look for a browser, and Lightning makes sure that no one can misuse your data and get to know your location.
Habit is also a good alternative browser for your Android phone. It has great app integration, speed, and customization options. You can change the UI according to your convenience, as well as the toolbar, buttons order and address bar. Customization wise, Habit is certainly one of the top browsers.
Next has clean aesthetics, UI animation is great too. The search bar is small and the notifications bar can be hidden, which gives you a bigger browsing canvas.

Another good point of this browser is that background processes are never kept running.
Flynx is another game-changing browser app. It is minimalistic, offers multi-tasking and is a bubble browser, which functions in the background. Meaning that as you check your social media accounts, Flynx can open links and place them as bubbles on the screen, in a clean and uncluttered manner. The app stores site data which can be accessed later, and you can read articles later due to its offline accessibility and intuitive interface, and block-ads feature. It is compatible with older smartphones, and if you can ignore its inability to sync some multi-device options, then it could be a good choice as your Android web browser.
