Samsung Internet Browser update introduces major UI changes
Samsung announced important new changes are coming to its mobile browser. Apart from the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements, the latest Samsung Internet Browser update brings many UI changes.

For example, there's a new notification manager that will help users to come to terms with what notifications they are receiving and to more easily disable unwanted notifications when necessary.

Furthermore, the display of “tabs” in Samsung Internet has been optimized for the mobile screen and form factor. However, the update further tweaks the way the mobile browser displays tabs on devices with larger screens.

The same goes for the way users can view history by allowing them to long-press on the forward and back buttons. Because many websites set a long title for their pages for SEO reasons, Samsung Internet Browser now allows users to rename the web shortcut they add to the home screen.

According to Samsung, all the changes mentioned above are already available in the latest version of Samsung Internet Browser beta, but we expect them to make it to the stable version in just a couple of weeks.

Samsung keeps improving on it mobile browser and it keeps getting better and better so much so that it is what i use exclusively on my Galaxy Note 8 and occasionally Chrome. Google has to start stepping it up.

Agree! I use Samsung Internet all the time and only have Chrome as backup.

Sadly that can't happen on iOS due to core restrictions.

Why do you wanna do that? Safari is awesome. Sure Samsung Browser is fast but Safari is even faster and much more convenient to use.

Safari is awesome? Not by my iPad Pro experience. It sucks, it lags, it's slow when working with multiple tabs, open in new tab takes forever.

Really a great browser. The only thing missing is ability to freaking move the address bar to the bottom of the screen. Back in the day web browser was one of the first apps I downloaded on my new Samsung phone, and I've been using probably a dozen of them. But in the past 2 years, that all changed. Haven't even checked a third party browser.

Actually, I've realized with the new update, if you press and hold and the "home" icon within the browser it automatically opens the address bar

I love how smooth Samsung browser is. Chrome stutters and lags still on an s855 chip. I don't get it.
