In a new development, Samsung Internet 15 is out of beta phase and is now rolling out for all users. The new Samsung Internet 15 browser brings a bunch of new features and tweaks as a part of the package.

Although many prefer using the Google Chrome browser for the ease of use and synchronization across other devices, Samsung’s Internet browser is one of the best alternatives to Chrome available on the Play Store.

It has almost all the features you could find on Google Chrome, along with some additional ones. Notably, these additional features are not just there for the sake of expanding the feature list. They are actually quite helpful.

Since privacy has become a major priority for users in the recent past, Samsung Internet 15 browser will surely impress such privacy-focused users.

As per a report in the official blog (via Android Police), Samsung is adding two new security features to its browser to shield users from privacy and data security threats.

Samsung Internet 15 has anti-tracking technology that prevents fingerprinting while browsing

Now you may ask, what is this “anti-tracking technology” on the Samsung Internet 15 browser? Apparently, it is a security feature that prevents users’ fingerprinting while internet browsing.

Moreover, Samsung has also revamped the “Delete browsing data” menu. The menu now shows exact details on what all information will be cleared if the option is selected for deletion.

The “Secret Mode”, which is Samsung’s own version of the incognito mode, is also seeing some changes. After turning on the Secret Mode, it will stay on until it is manually switched off by the user. Another great privacy-related feature.

Along with all these privacy-focused features, the browser is also getting a new search widget. It is now available on the homescreen, giving easy access to the search engine of your choice.

The search widget is re-sizable, movable, and has shortcuts for voice commands as well. Additionally, the browser will now store the temporary cache data of recently visited web pages.

This will result in a smooth and faster opening of web pages when maneuvering back and forth between links. If you are intrigued by all these new features, the stable version of Samsung Internet 15 is out on the Google Play Store.
