Do you know that it was in the year 1992 that the first internet browser was invented? Do you also know that there are over 1,200,898,567 active websites, and in every second, about 15 websites are launched?

Below are Top 5 Web Browsers for Android Cellphones

1. Puffin Browser

Puffin is a clear example of speed and efficiency. It speeds up mobile browsing by shifting the workload from the resource-limited devices to the cloud servers, and resource-demanding webpages can run super-fast on your phones or tablets. It's the default browser on my device. The speed is definitely out of this world.

2. UC Web Browser

UC Web Browser comes second on this list and it is certainly one of the best browsers out there. Talking about download speeds, UC is a Royal Majesty. It speeds up downloads quickly depending on how strong your internet network connection is.
If you go to the Advanced Settings on UC, you can tweak how your page is rendered; flip your User Agent to mobile or desktop, adjust brightness levels, or enable page acceleration and rotation. You can also opt to restore closed tabs if the browser crashes. There are even more menu features to tweak, like changing the number of pages that cache or remembering passwords.

3. Dolphin Browser

Dolphin Browser has been quite successful on Android. It has a decent set of features as well. That includes theming, flash support, ad-block, incognito mode, and some tertiary features like gesture controls. There is also add-on and extension support if you need that. It covers most of the bases and that's more than enough to rank it among the best. It’s definitely one of the best Android browsers.

4. Opera

The first is the standard Opera Browser which features a partial ad block, video compression to save data, and a dashboard where you can have news and favourites stored. You can create an Opera account and sync data between your smartphones and the desktop version. Opera Mini is a smaller, more lightweight option. It comes with a Facebook notification bar, partial ad blocking, and more. Each Opera browsers have their own beta version as well.

5. Google Chrome

Google's own browser "Chrome" is also fast, but here's the reason why it is on the 5th place - It uses up a considerable amount of RAM. Sometimes, it does freeze. Apart from those things, the browser is a very standard web browser.
