One of the things that makes Samsung’s smartphones stand out other than their impressive hardware specs is their software stability and useful features. Samsung doesn’t want to rely fully on Google’s Android when it comes to software support and this is why Samsung has created lots of useful apps that are available only its smartphones. The perfect example of this is the Samsung Internet Browser which is renowned for making it much easier to surf the web while mobile.
The reason why Samsung Internet Browser is making headlines on our website today is because it has just received a new update. The update is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels and it sports the 126.96.36.199 version number. With that said, let’s go ahead and check out the improvements that the update brings.
Samsung Internet Browser 188.8.131.52 Update
If you don’t want to use Google Chrome which is the stock Android browser, then picking Samsung Internet Browser as an alternative is the choice that you can make. This mobile browser is packed with lots of features and more importantly, it is updated with improvements on a regular basis.
As previously noted, the latest update for Samsung Internet Browser sports the 184.108.40.206 version number and it is available to download via OTA channels. The update doesn’t come with any new features and instead, it aims to improve the overall software experience.
According to the patch notes, Samsung Internet Browser’s latest update introduces a bunch of bug fixes and software improvements that are taking its performances to the next level. Therefore, the new update is classified as a high priority release.
We also want to highlight that the developers of Samsung Internet Browser are using the new update as an opportunity to upgrade the Chromium web engine to M75. This is going to boost Samsung Internet Browser web surfing speed.
