The browser is of Chinese origin, a fact that’s fairly obvious from the official website and Google Play description. The team appear to have created an interesting product that brings some well thought-out features to Android users, such as extensions which includes support for Evernote, Facebook and Pocket among others. There are gestures for navigating tabs, a top sites area for accessing your most frequently used websites and even in-built voice search.

Perhaps most importantly the browser is for the most part smooth and doesn’t appear to lag too badly. Developers included some smooth animations which look great along with steady scrolling and a very usable UI. There is also an built-in RSS feed reader, making Next Browser a powerful tool for those who want an app that can do it all.

    Yeah, I have recently seen this browser in the play store. This browser sounds quite good, so I may well give it a go. Esp as it has an RSS feed feature along with the save to Evernote and Pocket. The tab part shown in the video looks amazing! Thanks for going into this Tim, I may well download and use it! I'm just wondering whether the speed dial has constraints as on what to put on it or if only pre-defined sites can be used. Anyway, it looks great and worth a try :-)
