    "I love using the Firefox Browse Freely app on my Android phone! It allows me to almost forget I am using a phone as my browser. It is so easy to use and makes life a breeze."

    "One of the biggest disappointment I've had with chrome as a default browser is the lack of support for any addons that would let me block ads - and so many of the browsers that do offer that feature are such a mess in just about every other way. But with the Opera browser, I've finally found a browser that both gives me a great browsing experience, and goes the extra mile to improve an already great browsing experience with an ad blocker."

    "Puffin is a somewhat unknown browser for android devices but it's one of the fastest most reliable browsers available to androids. It's fast efficient and can do everything you need it too."

    "This is a good browser for Android phones. It has ad block built in and it is supposed to be speedier than other browsers so you have a quick, smooth browsing experience."

    "As the current default Android web browser lacks any sort of useful Flash functionality, The Dolphin app fixes any such lack of functionality and even improves upon the basic user web browser in many ways, such as Adblock and HTML5 video players."

    "I absolutely love Apus Browser. It's lightweight and fast, exactly what I am always looking for in a mobile browser. I especially love the speed mode, which boosts loading time and saves my data.. ummm, hello genius!"

    "I've used naked browser, opera mini, chrome, firefox, etc; they are all complete trash in comparison to Maxthon. What makes Maxthon better than the rest is that this browser isn't a watered down desktop browser. It has all the features and plugins you would expect in the browser in mobile form. Maxthon understands me as a user, as such it comes with adblock and speed mode to fill my needs without doing any extra configuration. Just an excellent browser all around."

    "I have simply been tired of using the resource hog Chrome and the unimpressive base browser that comes with most Android phones and tablets. A friend of mine has a IOS device and has had Mercury for some time and I was quite impressed. I finally get to try out Mercury Browser and I couldn't be happier. My phone no longer feels like it is dying when I have multiple tabs open or are attempting to watch embedded videos on webpages. Seriously if you are reading this make the switch and don't look back."

    "Opera mini is an awesome browser. It lets you browse faster, save data, block ads and browse in a variety of languages. I also love the video compression technology which reduces the size of video data and combats buffering delays. Another cool feature is night mode so a bright screen doesn't strain your eyes in the dark. I highly recommend everyone take a test drive with Opera Mini!"

    "Flynx is one of the better browsers for Android I've used recently. I helps condense info into a more easily read form on your phone. It's free and definitely worth a try. I downloaded it and have found it helpful for pulling info from larger less mobile friendly sites."

    "I like having the option of Opera on an Android phone! Sometimes I cannot access links on Safari or Chrome and it works on Opera. Having a mobile friendly Opera browser makes it easy to navigate sites."

    "Dolphin Browser is awesome. It's the fastest Android browser I've used. It's great that it has AdBlock preinstalled so I don't get spammed with garbage and use up my data. I like to customize and Dolphin Browser has a bunch of useful addons. Overall I'd rate it a four out of five, there's always room for improvement."

    "The information on the Google Play store doesn't really adequately explain how CM Browser is different from a more mainstream browser. Most of the features are ones you'd find standard in Chrome which will already be on an Android device. It mentions the small size of the app, but I'm not sure what the use cases would be, and I'm not even sure that one could uninstall Chrome on certain devices, making another browser redundant no matter how small."

    "Absolutely the fastest browser around for Android! I can't believe how much better my experience is with Android since I installed this mini browser. The speed is so much faster than anything I've seen. As far as lightweight it is incredible. So many people are joining in with me and agreeing. It is incredibly portable and superb! I highly recommend the product to anyone using Android."

    "I had used Ghostery on my desktop, and was excited to bring the same tracker protection to my phone. As with the desktop version, it does take some review and oversight to get the settings exactly as you would like the. However, I would rather limit access by default than have trackers extracting my online activities without me knowing. Having options for search engines is an added bonus, and "Ghostmode" is great way to get instant anonymity, especially when using public wi-fi."

    "Orfox is my new favorite browser. It's built using the same code as the Tor Browser which means my browsing is more secure and since it improves on the browser, it's a lot better then the Tor Browser."
