Samsung ad-blocking web browser now available on older Galaxy smartphones
posted by Mihai A. / Mar 28, 2016, 6:13 PM
Users of older Samsung Galaxy devices can now install the latest version of the Samsung Internet browser. The list includes devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3, and other devices running at least Android 5.0 Lollipop. For the full list of compatible devices, head on over to the source link below.
If you're wondering what the deal is, what you should know is that Samsung Internet v4.0 comes with notable improvements such as support for ad blocking extensions, the ability to launch online videos in a popup window and keep browsing the Internet with the video playing, as well as a Secret Mode that hides your online activity,
In addition to opening up the browser to older Galaxy phones, Samsung is also expanding the availability of its web browser to the Verizon-branded Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Verizon's phones ship without Samsung's own browser installed, and up until today, users were not able to install the app on their devices from the Google Play link.

Add blocking must be a hell of a nightmare for your site

More people would disable adblock for this site if there wasn't enormous popup ads that take up all of the screen

Not really. I bet they have been doing pretty good as of lately, with all the cash that is flowing into their pockets thanks to Cupertino, so ad blockers aren't going to be a problem for them.

I got it last wk. on my note 4, works fantastic very smooth and uses very little ram to run unlike chrome.... It has become my default Internet app, it's great to go onto phone arena site without adds covering up half of the site , takes seconds to load up now not 40 seconds.... Love it.
