Ditch those Heavy Browsers with Now Material Browser
Posted July 12, 2014 at 09:30 pm by egzthunder1
As stated in a previous article, each individual replacement browser brings its own strengths to the table. These ultimately benefit the overall Android ecosystem by giving more options to the end user. However, because of the way computing is in this day and age, apps are growing larger and more bloated with each and every iteration. Coders waste no effort in attempting to add more features that make the overall experience richer. However, this takes a toll on the size of the apps that we use. Take Google Chrome for Android for instance, which sits at a hefty 63.5 MB. For newer devices, this is not an issue as they come with at least 16 GB of internal storage–out of which, a large chunk can be used for apps. For devices with lower amounts of storage, Chrome can become somewhat of a luxury. Because of this, many people look around for alternatives that provide maximum functionality without having to sacrifice precious storage. If you are among these people, look no further because XDA Senior Member Jeeko has the solution that you need.
The dev is looking for feedback on bugs, requested features, and performance for different devices. So, please take it for a spin and see if you would like to free up about 60 MB off of your device! You can find more information in the Now Material Browser app thread. Happy browsing!
