The browser created by Samsung appears on Windows 10 and Windows 11. Will it attract people looking for alternatives to Chrome or Firefox?
Microsoft is not stingy with new products at the moment. The proof again today with the arrival of a new browser available on Windows 10 and 11 operating systems. After Chrome, Firefox, Safari or even Edge, it is thus an outsider which will be able to be downloaded by users, since the browser developed by Samsung is now available there. You don’t know what we’re talking about? But yes, remember: Samsung Internet.
Samsung Internet comes to Windows 11
Each browser has its advantages and disadvantages. This is why it is always tempting to look elsewhere, even if the majority of Internet users in the world connect with Chrome, the tool created by Google. It is surely with this idea of offering ever more options that Microsoft wanted to make Samsung Internet accessible.
Samsung Internet can thus be downloaded from the Microsoft application store, using a direct link. On Windows 11, it weighs around 130 MB, and can be installed on all types of computers, whereas until now it was limited to Android and Samsung Galaxy tablets.
An average browser?
For the record, Samsung Internet is a browser developed by the South Korean giant from the open-source Chromium project, and has been available since 2015 on the Google Play Store. It comes pre-installed on all Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
The desktop version looks pretty standard. It supports Chrome Web Store extensions and ad blockers, as well as a number of common browser features, such as normal mode or dark mode. According to XDA Developerswho was able to test the interface, navigation would not be particularly smooth, especially on platforms like YouTube.
