Adroid browser features
Vanity | Moi

Posted on 12/18/2019 4:08:28 PM PST by MrEdd

I am looking for a new browser for android which autohides the search bar to give you a full screen. This used to be a common feature.

Are there any browsers which have that?

I mostly use brave, and chrome now and again since I cant get rid of it.

Try using F11... Opera goes full screen.

How do you do F11 on an android smartphone? The OP is specifically asking for an android browser.

Another vote for Opera. There is a "Hide search box" setting.

Beware thought, Opera is owned by the Chinese.

If you are looking for a web browser for use with a TV or streaming box, try PuffinTV, you can get it on the Play Store.

“Opera is owned by the Chinese”

You’re right, Chinese investors bought it in 2016, but it’s still a Norweigan ompany.
