Although it may sometimes seem like it, the Android web browser scene doesn't start and end with Chrome, Firefox and Edge. There are many other interesting alternatives, such as the veteran Opera or the up-and-coming Brave Browser. In this list of options to consider we find Soul Browser, a browser with a sober and simple design aimed at improving the user experience by enhancing content and faster browsing.
A pleasant browsing experience
The first thing that stands out in Soul Browser when opening any page is how the content of the websites we load is presented. As we scroll through the pages we see how the different controls disappear, which only re-emerge depending on the gestures we perform, thus seeking to read and view with as few distractions as possible. There is also a commitment to speed up browsing by blocking the loading of ads, which reduces data traffic and waiting time.
But these are not the only two outstanding features of this browser, as its development has included other functions that make the browsing experience much more pleasant and productive, with special attention to multimedia content. These are the most outstanding ones:
- Integrated cleaner to remove unnecessary browsing data.
- Integrated download manager with support for video and simultaneous download.
- Video player for web and local files.
- Incognito mode to protect user privacy.
- Dark theme to make it more comfortable to use in dimly lit environments.
- Text-to-speech function for listening to dictated text.
- Function for the isolated reproduction of images from a website.
- Complete download of images from a page.
- Possibility of transmitting the multimedia content played to a television.
- Text font and size adjustment.
- Customisable interface.
- Screen captures.
- Integrated PDF viewer.
