Has been made to expect more from the account, but is now available the version 4.0 of the Samsung Internet browser. We already knew that he was going to bring markers and records hidden and protected with fingerprint, but at the end has been a day in private and quiet navigation with an extra additive that’s always good, content blocking.
This delay has also led to a turnaround in terms of the devices that will be compatible. Because while increases the range of models, with a enlargement from the series Galaxy Galaxy S series, it becomes more restrictive forcing to have installed one equal to or greater than 5.0 Android version Lollipop, and not 4.4 KitKat as had been advertised in the beginning.
The big news is the advertising content blocking. So far, Samsung Internet has offered the possibility of blocking pop-up windows on web pages, a feature that is within the advanced settings menu. But finally the version of March 2016 also makes it possible take advantage of extensions ad-block from other developers within the app from Samsung to disable all types of banners and not only the pop up.
They are more and more browsers that are offering this possibility and users who make use of it given that it is showing the amount of data carried ads, up to 80% in some extreme cases according to the latest study.
The problem is that the ad block is not integrated in Samsung Internet 4.0 as it is in other browsers. I.e. should join it from the outside through the installation of an additional app. It is not a great job but it’s a small hassle regarding the multitude of alternatives that do offer this possibility.
In return, the Galaxy browser opens that protected with fingerprint-secret mode that puts under personal guard history of visits and passwords without having to do private browsing, in which nothing is recorded. It also adds integration with the Samsung VR browser and system cross-app to open messaging in the browser. That each choose what compensates you more.
Users who can now enjoy the new features of the Internet browser are those who have one of these models: Galaxy S7 Edge, S7, Note5, S6 + Edge, Edge S6, S6, S6 Active, Note4, S5, S5 Neo, S5 Active, S5 Sports, S5 LTE to, Note3, S4, S4 Duos, S4 Active, S4 LTE to, A7, A8, A5x, A7x, and A9x.
