Looking for New Browser

Recommended Posts

Sir Topham Hatt    270

No matter what, I keep going back to Chrome. 

 

Can anyone suggest a browser that has a translate option (so couldn't go with Opera mini) and that works with LastPass? 

 

Thanks

You didn't say in your post this was for Android.

 

I currently use Samsung Browser, you don't need a Samsung phone for it, the addons i use for it are the add blocker and last pass.

You can use Yandex Browser. It has translate option and support for native Chrome extensions. I've been using it for a while now.

I've been using Brave browser for a while now and really like it.

 

It's still chromium based so it has the built in translation but doesn't have googles tracking/bloat. Plus it includes a built in ad blocker and a few other nice features :)

edit: just realized your question was in the android section :doh: but my points still stand; just took out the extensions comment above; the desktop version does support extensions from the chrome webstore though :)

I use Samsung Internet over Chrome, because it's faster, and has ad-blocking.

There shouldn’t be much performance difference. Both are based on Chromium.

I'm sure the ad blocking is a large factor of it feeling like it performs better :)

Try it out for yourself if you haven't.

It's faster even without ad-blocking. I've tried this on my 6P, and my S8+. Chrome is definitely not as responsive.

I have. Didn’t notice much difference myself 🙂

So far, tried a few of the popular ones like Nox, Mint, Kiwi but something about them has made me move on. I should start a list here.

I have a feeling though that Chrome just works with everything I want.

 

Brave didn't offer to translate a page (rare that I need this though). 

It also doesn't suggest a username with LastPass, only offers to fill in a password after I typed in a username.

 

Trying out Yanex but when logging in here, it didn't come up with the LastPass prompt.

Some browsers don't automatically popup the fill helper, you can try pulling the lastPass autofill down from the top of your device(3 dots) when on the login page this may or may not give you and fill in the login details, but it does often work for Opera Internet Browser(not mini) and Samsung Internet Browser it also works with Edge and probably some others if your phone is setup correctly although i couldnt get it to fill on the Yandex browser for Neowin.

Just tried Opera.

 

It didn't pop up with a LastPass suggestion when logging in here.

 

Is there a setting I need to change to enable this? It's already enabled in LastPass (to show a pop up). In Chrome it shows automatically with no input from me.

 

 

Tried the Samsung browser too and the same thing happens, no pop up.

 

Tried the Brave browser again and it seemed not to work with LastPass popup as before but after giving it another try, it seems to now suggest usernames AND passwords. However LastPass warned me:

Interesting that it shows Brave (neowin.net) in bold, almost as if Brave is somehow changing the way LastPass sees a URL. 

Hmm.

It won't popup automatically on all browsers, what you have to do is make sure the lastpass app is running, you should see 3 dots for it at the top left of your phone.

 

When on the login page pull the top down and click them and they may auto fill for you, sometime it asks you to make sure the correct part of the screen is visible.

 

Edge will work like Chrome btw.

Check out Brave.. It's privacy centric plus they have browsers for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
