Editors' review

Instead of a mobile version of your favorite Windows Web browser, Next Browser is built from the ground up to access the Internet on Android phones and tablets. It's light and fast but doesn't skimp on features like tabs, extensions, and voice searching. Next Browser is free and designed for Android 2.3.3 and above.

During setup, Next Browser suggested activating Flash Player but then immediately advised us not to because Adobe has stopped supporting the plug-in. We concur but appreciate that Next Browser lets you use it anyway for apps that need it. Next Browser's dark theme and Android-green highlights give the otherwise plain layout a slick look. But plain is good and clutter, bad when it comes to mobile browsers, and Next Browser's tabbed layout follows function over form, overall. The homepage has a voice-enabled Google search bar and customizable Speed Dial links to sites like YouTube and Facebook. We could import bookmarks from our phone's built-in browser (system bookmarks) or from other browsers like Chrome. Next Browser supports incognito tabs, and the sliding Extensions sidebar comes already equipped with Night mode, Screenshot, Evernote Clipper, Pocket, Save a PDF, and more.

We tried Next Browser next to mobile versions of Chrome, Opera, and other Android browsers and found it to be fast, easy to navigate, and highly customizable. For instance, we could set tabs and extensions to slide from left or right and configure voice search settings to exclude offensive words. Next Browser is an excellent option for anyone who likes a straightforward approach without leaving out important options.
