Android: Dolphin Browser — our pick for best browser on Android — has updated and added the ability to customise the browser’s design. The latest version also returns the browser’s “night mode” and adds a master password feature.
Chrome: Sometimes, even when we manage our many browser tabs, we still need to have a bunch of tabs open at the same time. When that happens, it can be a pain to find the one you need among the horde. Tab Ahead makes finding the right tab a cinch.
Android: One of the best third-party Web browsers on iOS, Mercury, has finally made its way to the Google Play Store. The free app is much like any other browser at first glance, but it has a few cool features that put it in the same league as our other Android favourites.
