Best Android Browser

Do all Mobile Browsers use the same amount of MB's to load an identical page. Which browser is best?

Re: Best Android Browser

Some use more memory than others.

I use Adblock Plus browser because ads.

It's maybe slower than others and uses quite a bit of memory, but it does wonders to my data usage. I wouldn't use any other browser without an ad and track blocking facility.

Re: Best Android Browser

I do believe that Opera Mini loads less resource than other browsers but the content is so also more limited. Maybe recommended for other smartphones since it's more lightweight.

Re: Best Android Browser

Can one set a " start page" when one opens the browser?

I think so - AdblockPlus is in fact a Firefox for Android with the ablock extension preconfigured and optimized in. Most of the usual customizations are available and if you use Firefox it won't feel strange.

You can always download it via Google Play and try it out.

P.S. the app is called "Adblock Browser for Android" by Eyeo GmbH, there are a few other similarly named apps not to be confused with
