Browsers, after all, are much more than a means to explore the vastness of the web. They are a toolbox through which you can enjoy it more thoroughly. Mozilla's browser, Firefox, recognizes this.

Its Android version offers plenty of other great features, too.
Overview and Features

It fully supports flash and has a built-in PDF reader, very useful for reading online. A Mobile Video feature will also let you view videos in a wide range of obscure formats including H.264.

Home panels will allow you to access your favorite web pages whenever you choose. Put them in any order you like. Perhaps your Twitter feed is more important, or maybe your Instagram account or Top Sites. Access your bookmarks and RSS feeds through dedicated menus, as well as your site history and recent tabs. As with all Firefox products, you can operate under a single user account, through which all of your history, bookmarks and security settings can be synced across all of your devices - a particularly convenient feature. This ensures that you can continue browsing with continuity across all of your connected devices. Firefox for Android also has an integrated search and address bar, just like its desktop counterpart. The app even gives you the option of adding specific search engines to this search bar so that you can search on multiple fronts at once.
