Favorite Internet Browser?

Hello everyone,

I just received the Onyx Boox Note Plus and it is a beautiful device. Text is still sometimes hard to read in certain apps, browsers, and websites. I tried nearly 12 different browsers last night. And so far my favorite browser is:

Samsung Internet Lite/Go

The regular Samsung Browser has a really great 'high contrast' setting which puts all white text on black background. Really loved this, but it is a HUGE happy and froze the reader. Really unfortunate and I hope they implement this into the lite/go version.

Would love to get the thoughts of others.

Thank you for that link. Lightning Browser with 'increased contrast' is now my preferred way to browse in e-ink!

I've had some luck with the Chromium browser -- I think you can get an apk for it via the getChromium app.

SRWare Iron. Its the same as Chrome but without the code that sends every keystroke to google ;-) Put it in A2 mode for best compatibility.

Ah, I didn't know there was an Android version, thanks for that.

To clarify, it's the following, right?

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rg.iron.srware

Is it still being updated?

I've tried many browsers. Opera mini is fast and has ads block features.
Now I use yandex with adguard extension. in A2 mode it works really well. To me text auto-wrap and ads block are the features that a browser must have.

For me the above mentioned Iron is the best. Because it has the translation tool which is the same powerful as Chrome, beside other good features.
