The 7 Fastest Data Saving Browsers for Android

Modern advancements in the form of apps on our smartphones have left us with no reason to use older and less responsive web apps inside the browser. However, for anything that doesn’t come packaged as a dedicated app on the Play Store, the default web browser is our best friend—or is it?

It turns out that Chrome or Samsung Internet are better choices for those who value speed and general snappiness when browsing the web. In this article, we have seven of the fastest web browsers for Android that will allow you to search exceptionally fast.

1. Google Go

Google Go is probably the cleanest, most fluid mini browser out there. Not only does it have the major advantage of being up-to-date with Google’s latest design guidelines, but it actually has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it a viable alternative over Google Chrome.

Quick launch options let you easily search by voice, use your phone’s camera for live translation, or simply find out what’s happening using your Google feed. The browser also has shortcuts to find images and GIFs that you can share with your friends.

In addition to faster animations, you can choose a wallpaper of your choice, select another language to quickly switch between search results, and enable Lite Mode to save extra data.

2. Karbonn: Super Fast Browser

Aside from its incredibly to-the-point name, this browser checks all the right boxes that make a browser fast. It has a simple interface, an ad-blocker, a data-saver and even a built-in VPN. The combination of all these features provides an exceptionally fast browsing experience.

Despite being a speed-oriented browser, Carbon has a list of options to fine-tune your search experience. In fact, the entire hamburger menu and its options are a “carbon” copy of Google Chrome. Lastly, the browser also features Carbon statistics which display the number of trackers and ads that you have successfully dodged while using this web browser.

3. Opera Mini

Opera is a name that has become synonymous with speed over the years, and the mini version of the web browser takes things even closer to the speed of light. Getting rid of most of the features found in the traditional Opera browser, Mini has a bare-bones search tool with a few handy features.

In addition to the usual data-saving and ad-blocking tools found in other browsers, Opera Mini allows you to share files with your friends offline. It has a dedicated section for personalized news that adapts to your browsing habits to display relevant stories. You can also get into the customization settings to tweak how the web browser looks.

4. Bahadur

A lot of users are abandoning Google Chrome for Brave in recent times due to an uproar in the need for privacy-oriented features. With a completely in-house search engine and promised speeds of up to three times that of Google Chrome, Brave has amassed a good number of loyal users across the globe.

Being a privacy-first browser, you can expect the usual set of features like ad-blocker, tracker protection, third-party cookie blocker, and more. Brave forces every web instance to load with an automatic HTTPS protocol and will warn you before accessing sites that aren’t secure.

The browser also has a built-in VPN that you can use to access geo-blocked content, although you will need to pay for it.

5. Hermit Lite Apps Browser

Hermit takes the whole notion of fast web browsing up a notch by letting you turn any website into an app in seconds, so you don’t have to spend precious storage on your phone installing tons of different social media apps Not there.

The app also apparently works as a regular browser and quickly pulls up search results.

6. Firefox Focus
