Full Story

Ah, the ritual of setting up a new Android phone. For me? It’s all about getting the right apps in place. Top of the list? Samsung Internet Browser. And yes, I dive straight into the beta version too. Why? Well, it’s not just me being fancy. Both versions are up for grabs – not just on the Samsung Galaxy Store but on the Google Play Store too.

I’ve gotta say, this browser? It’s the bee’s knees for mobile surfing. And playing around with the beta? It’s like getting a sneak peek into the future. The latest and greatest, before everyone else. Speaking of which, the new beta version,, has this nifty feature. SamMobile spilled the beans on it. You can now take screenshots in Secret Mode. Sneaky, right?

Secret Mode and Incognito in Chrome are like cousins. In Secret Mode, your tracks are covered. Cookies? Poof. History? What history? But here’s the kicker – the stable version won’t let you snap pics in Secret Mode. Go figure.

Oh, and here’s a little tidbit that wasn’t in the official changelist. A tweet from @theonecid showed off something cool. The beta’s got new shortcuts. You can slap a Search widget and a Bookmark widget right on your homescreen. Imagine that. Your bookmarks and searches, just a tap away.

Wanna try it on your Android? No need for a Samsung phone. Just hit up the Google Play Store. Here’s a link for the browser and another for the beta. Easy peasy.

So, what’s the verdict? Are you as hooked on the Samsung Internet Browser as I am? Drop a comment below. Let’s chat about it.
