Best web browsers for the Nokia X

Several months have passed since Nokia launched its first smartphone running Android, the Nokia X. The new device debuted at MWC 2014 in Barcelona. One of the main things we use our smartphones for today is surfing the web (hopefully reading AmongTech) and the Nokia X is no different. Lets take a look at the best web browsers for the Nokia X (that aren’t Chrome or Firefox)

1. Opera

Opera is the default web browser on the device, the browser is fully optimized for the device and has some neat little features that will increase speed and improve the user experience:

  • Opera Turbo: which compresses data before it reaches the user’s mobile device
  • Discover feature: which a new way of finding interesting content
  • Speed Dial: lets user save, move and organize Speed Dial entries into folders

Opera is based on Blink but still has those extra features that are exclusive to Opera making it an overall great browser! You can download it here

2. Maxthon

It might not be the first browser you thought of when looking for a new one, but Maxthon is one definitely worth checking out. Maxthon is a cloud based, cross platform browser (available on iOS, Mac, Windows, Windows Phone, Kindle fire and Android).

With features like NewsBite allowing you to quickly access your favorite news website and features like Fetch Mode which automatically loads the next page of a site in the background Maxthon is a great alternative to Nokia X’s default browser, Opera.

3. Dolphin

Dolphin might be one of the most popular third party browsers that aren’t Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Having several similar features to Opera’s smart dial one of the main features that make it distinguish it self is the gesture drawing feature. You can also choose your own themes and color combinations to customize the look of the browser to your liking.

Dolphin also includes extensions to add even more features that aren’t available on the default “vanilla” browser. You can download it here
