Mobile Web Browsers

As mobile devices are now the most used Internet-connected devices in the world, being able to use web browsers to navigate the Internet on them is more important than ever. Unlike the old days of feature phones and “dumb” phones (such as the once-worldwide phenomenon Motorola Razr), Android and iOS web browsers are often similar or the same as their desktop kin, save for a user interface optimized for touch screens that fit in the palm of your hand. This includes tried and true browsers such as Google Chrome and Opera, and many, many more.
