samsung internet browser with chrome bookmarks

I never used the stock internet browser of my galaxy phones. For the longest time, I simply use Google Chrome because I want my bookmarks from my desktop browser readily available on my phone. It would be too much of a hassle to build folders of bookmarks from scratch.

I just discovered there is a work around. One would just have to add the extension called Samsung Internet on their Chrome desktop. Once logged in (using the same credentials you used on your phone of course), it will automatically import all your bookmarks. Sweet.

So far, the Samsung Internet Browser works fine for me with no hiccups. I must say it is a tad faster than Chrome too. I also like how some of the functions are just below the page for easy access. 

But what I really love about this browser is that it supports ad block extensions. Isn’t that neat? My only gripe about this app is its icon that resembles the planet Saturn. Way before, it was just a globe. Based on the advertisement of the app, the current icon also represents Earth- just spinning around. Lame.
