Alternatives to Google Chrome for Android with any license

  • Mozilla Firefox

    Mozilla Firefox (known simply as Firefox) is a free and open-source web browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation and its subsidiary, the Mozilla Corporation.

    • Firefox allows far more control over your privacy than does Chrome (or even Chromium on which Chrome is based). Not jut because it doesn't come with Google stuff embedded, but also because it allows complete control over things like webRTC (which can leak info about your IP address, hardware), whereas Chrome/Chromium and related browsers don't have this control. Guest • Nov 2016 • 39 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Highly customizable, open and libre, care about privacy. Made on non-profit. bumbaMar 2017 • 34 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Firefox is definitely more secure. Tons of options and customization too. Definitely my #1 browser. christinalewisAug 2017 • 18 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 1) Non-Google 2) Add-ons 3) Syncs 4) Tab Queue 5) QR code reader 6) Remote debugging bonbonboiJan 2018 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Better CSS3 support, more customizable, faster, consumes much less CPU and RAM on a week PC, consumes less battery on laptops, better privacy protection level. Guest • Apr 2018 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome is closed-source and part of Google's privacy-invading business model, which works by harvesting user data. Firefox is open source, so you can check what it's doing under the good. It's also more configurable (about:config) and its Nov 2017 update made it faster than its competitors. JohnFastmanJul 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Basically it's still open source with the original Navigator look and feel. All in one browsing and email if you use SeaMonkey. Guest • Mar 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • However it is open source and the privacy is better, the consumption of RAM is huge, try yourself: open just one tab with Whatsapp Web, and you will see Firefox using 1GB of RAM! sidboyJun 2017 • 10 agrees and 33 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It's like Chrome. But without the resource hogging and Google crap. RefalmMay 2017 • 10 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The new version of Opera implements the same web kit used by the Chromium project (and hence Google Chrome). Although this removes many of the features that used to give Opera a unique flair, the browser now boasts excellent compatibility with all modern web languages. Guest • Feb 2016 • 9 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Opera is the browser that tries to innovate with every update. Very appreciable. Guest • Jun 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It uses the same google chrome sourse so you can browse in any chrome optimized website but it doesnt have a google branding and it also has a better interface to me antonioortizNov 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has features that many other browsers don't have for example VPN, ad blocker, screenshoting, Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram messenger bar and many others. Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • The best browser. It has a built-in VPN and an ad-blocker. Chrome extension + opera extension. DimuthTharinduAug 2018 Disagree   Agree

  • Chromium

    Chromium is the open-source browser project from which Google Chrome takes its source.

    • It's more lighter then chrome and have all functions of it bohdanfetsoNov 2016 • 18 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Without the google branding, it is the same efficient code. User2778798Jun 2017 • 7 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • On Linux, this is the best alternative to Google Chrome, especially if your distribution does not support Google Chrome. The same speed, security, and reliability that you can expect from Chrome, but without Flash player and other proprietary bits. jxewingJul 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It doesn't have a proper installer for Windows. It's very hard to install it compared to Google Chrome. On the other hand, on Linux platform both are easy to install. williamneisAug 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • The derivative of chrome, lighter and open sourced. jacobsmith_16Oct 2017 • 2 agrees and 11 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Brave is fast and has many built in features that are great Guest • Apr 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Brave is an effort to make a Chrome-like experience based on the Chromium code base and remove/block all the spyware Google put in to monitor your online activity. Brave is good, but it's not as good/flexible as Iridium. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's good and fast, but makes it really better than Chrome is that it is developed with security and privacy in mind. I use it on my phone and my laptop, and I'd never switch to anything else Guest • May 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's good. But Chrome has a lot of extensions. If you're used to use many extension and if you want to continue using those extensions, this is not a good solution for you. Guest • Jul 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • All about security and reducing the web's dependence on ads. getterdonApr 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Privacy protections by default like fingerprint and tracker blocking. Even script blocking if desired. Each privacy option is configurable for each page. It's only missing an option to sync or export browsing history and bookmarks (though I can see these features interfere with "perfect" privacy) Guest • Nov 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Fewer options, Chromium under the hood, built in ad blocker, no risk of installing garbage through the WebStore. Only problem: no user scripts! Guest • Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It's an excellent alternative if you want a browser with implemented adblocker mlemmarkAug 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Brave is fast, stable and secure. It also adds innovative secure browsing features. Guest • Aug 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • Tor is a web browser, like Chrome, with high advantage of privacy protection Guest • Jun 2016 • 8 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it has extensions such as NoScript by default, and configuration settings to avoid being tracked Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It is exactly an alternative to Chrome. Google believes people should not have privacy as stated by its CEO Eric Schmidt. The Tor Project believes the opposite. 9y0xwefhpwMay 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • If you want to use a browser's Incognito mode (called Private Browsing in Firefox and Safari), you don't want where you go to be recorded in files stored on your computer. Microsoft Edge DOES store info about where you've been, even if you've been there using its InPrivate mode. (http://betanews.com/2016/01/30/stop-using-microsoft-edges-inprivate-mode-if-you-value-your-privacy/). Switch to an open source browser. There are plenty of good ones. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 23 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The Typing and Drawing option is awesome, Its new and in development but with Bing it work better than Chrome as returned results. (we migrated from Google 3 years ago and can confirm the ongoing update for the better. ) PS Not a "MS fan" here... But be able to run RedHat on Windows 10 changed my geek life. Guest • Dec 2016 • 4 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • This is a great alternative for users who want to stick w/ Windows 10. It is automatically installed with Win10 and is great with it's slim design and clean UI. Guest • Sep 2016 • 3 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
