Tablet PCs are considered to be the hybrid of a smartphone and a laptop for several reasons. Like smartphones, most tablets provide a SIM card support that allows you to make calls and send text messages through your network carrier. On the other hand, its large screen makes it useful for most computing purposes. A 10 inch tablet can easily replace most netbooks that are of the same screen size. Tablets are extensely used to browse the Internet, create and view documents, watch movies, play games and every other functionality that one gets in a personal computer. With Internet browsing being a major part of a tablet's usage, it is important to have the best browsers installed on your device.
a. Google Chrome: The latest versions of Android tablets have Google Chrome pre-installed on the device. It is almost an exact replica of its desktop version and provides synchronization features that help you juggle bookmarks, browsing history and other features between all your devices. Being a Google product, it needs you to sign in with your Gmail ID, which makes it easier to share information across different Chrome browsers signed in with the same user ID.
b. Boat Browser: The look and design of the Boat browser is quite similar to that of Google Chrome. However, what goes for it is that Boat is generally faster than Chrome and can handle several tabs without any performance degradation. There are several features offered in the “Settings” section, which makes it extremely customizable.
c. Opera for Mobile: Opera was one of the first web browsers that offered an optimized application specifically for smartphones and tablets. The app works extremely fast, even with the cheapest Android tablet. The browser sports a minimalistic design, which makes it easy to use for people who are new to the Android ecosystem. The Opera download manager is worth a mention as users can easily start, stop or pause a download request.
d. Dolphin Browser: Apart from offering a clean interface, the unique selling point of this browser is that it allows users to share a page directly on Facebook. Moreover, website content can be redefined as Evernote notes by direct transferring it to your Evernote account.
Web browsers for Android tablets have progressed substantively in the last few years. Most of these popular browsers dynamically change the display style of a webpage, based on the screen size of the android tablet. The future of web browsing is even more exciting as these browsers are trying to integrate other popular apps and websites within the product itself.
