Internet browsers. They're an essential tool for any smartphone, and on Android, there's a myriad to choose from.

The Galaxy S10 ships with two of them out of the box, including Google Chrome and Samsung Internet. Each one comes with its own set of pros and cons, and looking through the AC forums, there seems to be a lot of love for Samsung.

Here's what some of our members had to say.

Chrome is absolutely trash on mobile, Pop-up ads like crazy. Samsung's browser is the best mobile browser by far with Ad blocking at it finest.

I only use Samsung browser now, since has a high contrast mode in accessibility settings. Makes backgrounds black. Also just as fast and more features than Chrome.

For me Samsung browser on Android is the nicest one for me. I didn't like it two days ago after my Pie update (Note 8) because they embedded the favorites button in the options area making it 3 steps to choose a fav. But they updated the browser last night and all is well. I believe it uses the Chromium project so it's pretty much a Chrome browser so performance I find identical as far as...

SAMSUNG. Offers more and takes advantage of features. I also use Safari on my iPhone for the same reasons. Before it was always Chrome. This shows why I will not pay for Google's Pixel, not anymore after buying the first, it just doesn't offer anything.

  • I use Brave Browser on all my devices, including desktop & laptop.
  • We meet again, LOL :0) I would love to try this, but there's just one main thing keeping me tied to Chrome and that's the years of saved passwords(password manager). Do you know of a way to export this from Chrome and import it into Brave or the Samsung browser?
  • When you set up Brave on your desktop and Chrome is installed it will ask you to import from Chrome.
  • Nice to see you again! I have not used Chrome in forever, but doesn't it let you export passwords? Check the bookmark manager.
  • I've used Firefox for years.
  • Samsung internet all the way
  • Not to sound mean, but why? The interface and overall usability always seemed so clunky to me.. I skipped that option from my SIII all the way up to the Note 8 never used it much
  • It has a different interface now if your on the S10. It's much more user friendly.
  • I use Samsung internet browser on my S9 and Black Edition BlackBerry Key One. Works very well.
  • I use Microsoft Edge on my Galaxy S10+ and I use the Chromium version of Edge
  • Same here. But for one hand usage, I prefer Kiwi browser on my handheld device
  • Egde on my huawei phone and edge on chromium for my laptop
  • Samsung Internet Browser.
  • Samsung internet browser
  • Usually I switch to Nova but not this time. I'm very satisfied with the OneUI this time around. It definitely has been vastly improved on my s10plus! I also like the dark mode so I leave it on all the time.....
  • We're talking about browsers... not launchers...
  • I use Edge on S10 and Edge on windows 10 pc
  • Kiwi browser is like chrome but far better. I believe it was recommended on this site previously and that's why I tried it. It's been my go-to ever since.
  • Never thought I'd say this, but.... I'm using Samsung's stock browser. And loving it. In fact, I'm using the stock Samsung browser, mail and calendar. Love that dark theme and they do everything I need them to do.
  • Microsoft Edge ftw
  • I use Firefox on Android devices.
  • I'm using Edge. Love the 'Send to PC' feature.
  • Samsung Browser is worth it just for the Dark Mode and Ad Blockers, for opening pages on Google Search though I use Privacy Browser, which I also recommend.
  • Samsung Browser for the win.
  • Microsoft Edge. It really has all I need.
  • surprised no Dolphin Browser users? very fast and never any issues with rendering pages in mobile or desktop mode...
  • Well then Dolphin must've gotten itself straightened out... Time was it was a popular browser and then they altered the ad blocker causing the browser to regularly and spontaneously crash unless you turned it off which left you open to being inundated with ads. Do they still ship your info off to Chinese servers? That was also an issue they got caught on...
  • Samsung on my Note 9. Chrome just bamboozled you with Ads...
