If there is one thing that Samsung does better than everyone when it comes to smartphones, then it has to be the fact that the South Korean tech giant focuses on more than simply installing the most powerful hardware on its flagship devices. Take for example the Samsung Internet Browser. Samsung doesn’t want to rely on other companies, such as Google for example, and this is why it develops dedicated apps for all its smartphones.
Even though Samsung Internet Browser might not benefit from the same popularity as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox do, no one can deny the fact that it does an amazing job of helping users surf the web at fast speeds and providing them with access to useful features. To make things even better, the mobile browser is updated weekly with improvements.
Samsung Internet Browser 188.8.131.52 Update
If you are a big fan of Samsung Internet Browser, then it is highly advised that you keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. The reason why we are saying that is because a brand-new update that sports the 184.108.40.206 version number is now rolling out.
Alternatively, eager Samsung Internet Browser fans who don’t want to wait for the update to pop-up in their notifications panel can always choose to manually download and install it. This is possible by getting the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). However, we do need to mention that installing APKs is a bit tricky.
According to the patch notes listed by the developers who are in charge of Samsung Internet Browser, the new update focuses on taking the overall performances of the mobile browser to the next level. Check them out below:
