And that’s exactly why I have compiled some of the best and the fastest browsers that you can download in 2021.
You will love the brave browser if you are annoyed with ads and third-party cookies. The app is available for free on the Play Store. Brave browser is one of the best browsers for Android which will optimize your browsing experience with all the basic necessities of a good browser.

Puma Browser is one such browser that sets privacy as its top priority. With a default search engine, DuckDuckGo you can look for your desired content without being get noticed. Puma Browser can be a good option for online publishers and creators.
While you can use Mozilla Firefox to carry out most of your web related tasks effortlessly, Firefox Focus tends to be a choice of those looking to ensure their online security. The app size is 4MB which doesn’t require high-end specifications for the smartphone you are using it on.
However, this tiny browser app is not only going to remind you to delete your browser history but also block a number of ads on the webpages you visit. Firefox Focus is designed in a way that you can keep track of the number of tracking programs it blocks on any site that you land on.
Considering gradually increasing sizes of mobile screens, one-hand reachability often turns out to be a tedious job for any mobile browser. However, you can readily switch to Opera Touch and carry out most of the common tasks like refreshing, closing a tab and even doing a search without having to use both of your hands.
Its user interface is what truly sets this mobile browser apart from the rest as it provides users with a single tap ad-blocking feature. Moreover, Opera has integrated a dedicated tool so as to ensure safety from several unethical crypto miners. You can not only type your queries in the search bar but also do a search using the built-in speech to text feature in the search option.
For those who integrally consider themselves to be a part of Microsoft’s ecosystem, the mobile version of Edge browser can turn out to be a fruitful choice. Even if you aren’t truly impressed by the desktop counterpart of Edge, this mobile browser is developed by a separate team which has hardly left any space for complaints.
You can seamlessly sync your webpages across various devices and access your saved bookmarks and browsing history from your PC as well. Keeping the user experience in mind, Microsoft has recently included a dedicated option of informing the user about the credibility of any website providing news content.

From safe browsing to the data saver option, there is hardly any front in which Google Chrome seems to lack. You can easily save your webpages for offline viewing if you are running short on time or can even sync them across various devices with the help of your Google account. However, auto form filling capability of Chrome is what turns out to be the most practical thing you can expect from a mobile browser.
Tor Browser for Android is probably the best browser for privacy. It connects to Tor’s proxy network and hides what you’re doing from your ISP and basically everybody else. It surfs the web fairly well and it also blocks trackers, defends against surveillance, and includes multi-layer encryption.
I am comfortable enough putting this on here despite its early age. I do only recommend this for people who are serious about their privacy and power users who understand how this works.
