Samsung Internet Browser 6.2 now available for download
Samsung Internet Browser has been around for a while, and the latest version finally brings some features that many users were waiting for out of the beta stage. This mobile web browser has been around since 2012 when it replaced the stock Android browser on Samsung Galaxy devices. Version 4 arrived in early 2016, bringing push notifications and content blocking extensions, while version 5 followed in December of the same year, introducing an enhanced video assistant and support for Web Payment. Now, the time has come for the version 6.2 of this Android app to shine.
Samsung Internet Browser 6.2 unleashes a set of features that have been in beta testing for a while, such as Night Mode and High Contrast Mode or a new built-in Tracking Blocker. Other than these two, the new stable release of Samsung's web browser for Android also includes the Chromium 56 engine, sync for bookmarks from other browsers and devices, Samsung Pay and Samsung Rewards integration for users in the United States, support for Android 5.0 Lollipop and later, as well as the ability to download and install third-party ad blocking services via the new Content Blockers page.
The difference between Night Mode and High Contrast Mode might be a bit confusing at first sight, but these two view modes are quite different. While Night Mode decreases the screen's brightness to reduce eye fatigue in low light conditions, its sibling known as High Contrast Mode increases the brightness as much as possible to make the display easier to read.
Samsung Internet Browser 6.2 can be downloaded via Google Play or Galaxy Apps. The app is very popular in Google Play, having been downloaded by more than 100 million users so far. Its current rating is 4.2 out of 5 stars, after more than 213,000 user votes, of which about 145,000 gave it the maximum rating of 5 stars.
