Results: Chrome about to be dethroned?
by Preslav Kateliev / Jan 04, 2018, 9:31 AM
So, we thought we'd ask if Samsung users out there actually use it now, or they just swap to Chrome as soon as they can.
Little did we know that the Samsung Internet browser is actually so loved that even users that don't have a Samsung phone download it. Yeah, it is available on the Play Store for any Android user, and apparently, there's a good reason for that. While it barely loses to Google Chrome in our poll, that is still very, very impressive. Good job on that browser, Samsung!
Do you use Google Chrome or the stock Samsung Browser?

I’m surprised there were that many votes. Compared to the Samsung browser, chrome is absolutely junk. I don’t think it would be even in my top 3.

Chrome is a well know browser for many years. Give a few more years when everyone test out the Samsung mobile browser then Chrome will be weaken. I am a Chrome user in the past but Samsung browser have make me switch. I really like the adblock feature and Samsung pass.

At the end of the day Chrome has over 1 billion plus users on the Play store, verses Samsung's browser with over 100 million. Opera has over 100 million. Firefox has over 100 million. Microsoft's edge has over 1 million.

Chrome is losing it's popularity by the day. I'm using Firefox quantum on PC now because it works faster, very light weight for the RAM and doesn't violated your privacy by collecting user data secretly.

because Chrome comes pre-installed with most of the phones. I use both Chrome and Samsung. The only reason I use Chrome is for its translate features. It does a great job of translating sites in other languages. I am also very impressed with the Edge browser.

Chrome has been in the Playstore since the beginning. Samsung has been in there for only a year or so (unsure; just a guess). How is that a fair comparison? Chrome sucks, and I'm not sure why so many publications and reviewers swear by it.

No way. Chrome is far better. All Samsung products lag, and it's incredibly annoying.

Have you actually used the Samsung browser lately? I've always used nothing but Chrome but switched recently because it actually works much better. Less bugs and some features that I use everyday. Don't know about other Samsung apps but their browser is surprisingly good.

Completely agreed. Samsung phones are really laggy and resource hungry. Once my Galaxy Note 8 plus pro alpha ate up all the electricity in my town and we were out of electricity for 3 weeks because of the lag...

actually if you used both you will know that samsung's browser is smoother, it has been the case since chrome debuted android OS (back then chrome was unusable due to lag and bugs but it improved dramatically since then, but samsung's browser is still smoother)

Well, I personally use Opera Mini (While I'm on cellular) and Chrome (While on Wifi) as my primary browsers. And now that Edge Browser is available on Android; I'll give it a shot and see if it's a worthy contender to replace Chrome. G'Day!
