Non-beta Samsung Internet Browser now available for Pixel and Nexus phones
Even if you don't have a Galaxy smartphone, you may know that Samsung has its own internet browser for Android, aptly (albeit dully) called Samsung Internet Browser. 

As of this week, the very latest stable version of Samsung Internet Browser is compatible not just with Galaxy phones, on which it comes pre-installed, but also with Google Pixel and Google Nexus handsets. Previously, only the beta version of the browser was made available to non-Galaxy devices.

If you own a Pixel or Nexus phone (running Android 5.0 or newer), you can go ahead and download Samsung Internet Browser from Google Play - see the source link below.

Just like Google Chrome (which is pre-installed on a much larger number of Android devices), Samsung Internet Browser is based on Chromium, Google's open source browser project. However, Samsung's app has a slightly different feel, and offers some features that you won't find in Chrome - including support for privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo, and a floating Quick Menu button that lets you easily change web page text sizes, share pages, or open new tabs.

Let us know if you're trying (and liking, or disliking) Samsung's Internet Browser on a non-Galaxy smartphone, okay?
