Samsung Browser coming later this year

Samsung Browser unified app for TVs, tablets and handsets
Samsung Browser
Samsung Browser is a Web browser for all the company's Internet-enabled products, including TVs, and uses only HTML5 for video.

Adobe Flash-driven video content is slowly but surely being replaced by HTML5 and Samsung Browser follows this trend. According to Tizen Indonesia, Samsung Electronics will introduce this browser as an unified app later this year that is capable to run on all the company's connected devices - smartphones and phablets, tablets and convertibles, as well as smart TV sets.

Samsung insiders claim this new Web browser is fast, stable, and easy to use, but it is also capable to automatically adapt online content to the device it runs on. Samsung Browser uses the WebKit rendering engine that also powers Apple's Safari and packs a set of features that includes Reader Mode, offline browsing, S Pen-enabled clipping, as well as Web Video Casting.

The next version of Samsung Browser will reportedly use the Blink layout engine, which is currently being used by Google Chrome, Opera, Amazon Silk and others. Even more, Samsung and Mozilla are working on a new rendering engine known as Servo, based on the new Rust programming language.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
