Google Chrome is the preinstalled web browser on the vast majority of Android mobiles. If you like Google Chrome, but not GoogleYou can always go for alternative Chromium based browsers like Ungoogled Chromium, Kiwi or Bromite.
Bromite is an open source Chromium based web browser that removes all Google traces, adds privacy enhancements that are not in the standard version, and adds cool features like view the source code of a website, force tablet mode, modify user agent, use Greasemonkey scripts and many more.
Less Google and more advanced features
Bromite is a new browser based on Chromium – the open source part of Google Chrome – to create a browser that looks a lot like Google Chrome, but has no trace of google. All references to Google APIs and websites have been removed internally, so the address bar reverts to an address bar – no search suggestions.
The home page is much cleaner, without recommended articles or other necessities that Google incorporated recently. A few recommended links appear, the button to open favorites and downloads and that’s it. The menus are very similar to those in Google Chrome, although there are some new options.
For example, it is possible to view the source code of the open page or save all open tabs as bookmarks, two options available in Google Chrome for PC, but not on mobile. The browser also recovers old Chrome functions that could be activated by Chrome flags which were later removed, like the one in # shoot to refresh.
The added privacy options include many additional options for incognito mode, some from settings and others through flags. The idea is to improve the incognito mode so that it can be used for all websites, with options to enable screenshots and history in incognito mode or open all links to external pages in incognito mode. .
Other possibilities of Bromite are the user agent and time zone customization and the ability to use Greasemonkey scripts to customize web pages, as well as the ability to turn off autoplaying of videos or, conversely, have videos keep playing in tabs in the background.
Bromite is an open source browser that not available on Google Play. You need Android Lollipop or higher and you can download it from its website in APK format, choosing the architecture of your mobile.
