There are lots of web browsers out there that you can get for your mobile, but we think we might have just found the best one. If you have an Android phone, you need to download Kiwi browser. Let us tell you why.

Like with Android, Google made the code that powers its Google Chrome web browser open source so that developers can use it to build their own web browsers. These are called Chromium browsers, and Kiwi is a Chromium browser that has some exciting features built on to the Google Chrome source code.

Kiwi Browser has some really impressive features

For starters, Kiwi browser is lightning fast. Speed was always one of Chrome’s biggest selling points, but Kiwi has taken it to another level. It is much quicker than Google Chrome. On top of the speed, Kiwi also has a built-in pop-up ad blocker, and it also sports a crypto-mining blocker. As we’ve mentioned many times, crypto-mining malware is on the rise. So it’s great that we have a browser that automatically blocks attempts to use all your phone’s processing power to make money for somebody else.

The most amazing Kiwi browser feature, however, is even more impressive due to the recent launch of YouTube’s two new paid subscription services, YouTube Premium and YouTube Music. Both services offer many cool features like downloads for offline viewing and listening; and exclusive access to singles, albums, and remixes. One of the most significant premium features, however, is background playing. If you subscribe to either service, you can have your YouTube music videos playing in the background while you are doing something else. Usually, this is impossible using the YouTube app or your web browser, but not with Kiwi Browser.

Kiwi browser has background play so you can have YouTube playing in the background while you are working away on something else, or just browsing the internet.

Other cool features include a Night Mode, which makes everything dark and there is an even cooler feature on the way. According to a Reddit thread, the developer is working on a feature that will allow users to place the address bar at the bottom of the page, rather than the top. This common-sense feature will make it a lot easier to browse the web with just one hand, considering how big some phones are these days.
