Simple Web Browser
There are plenty of bad mobile web browsers on Google Play and the Apple App Store, but few are quite as awful as Simple Web Browser. With intrusive adverts that float over web pages and get in the way of links, limited navigation options (Back, Forward, Search, History, Reload) and no address bar at all, this app certainly lives up to its name – simple to the point of being absurd.

The good news is that there’s no shortage of great mobile browsers to choose from – so many, in fact, that it’s not easy to pick one. If privacy is your priority, you might consider Duckduckgo’s recently released Privacy Browser ( bit.ly/duckdroid446 for Android, bit.ly/duckios446 for IOS). Or how about Opera Mini ( bit.ly/operadroid446 for Android, bit.ly/operaios446 for IOS) if you’re after speed and built-in ad blocking?
But whether or not your device came with it installed, we still reckon Chrome is king of the browsers. It’s fast, adaptable, supports offline viewing, allows voice searching and syncs well with the desktop version.
