i have been using samsung flagships for the last 8 years and the samsung browser have since come a long way. the last 3 or so years saw its redesign and it really has become one of the best android web browsers, especially when they rolled out the ad-blocker option. last year i signed up for its beta program and i'm finding it actually is as stable as the original version. i have switched temporarily to razer phone in frustration of having no option still for a flat screen on the note 9, but samsung internet beta is one of the first apps i have downloaded to it. while i have found ways to get the features i am used to with my previous samsung devices, i found samsung internet beta is irreplaceable.

It's a variant of chrome, but still better than Android stock browser (chrome)

Dolphin Browser is the best!
Better than Chrome, Firefox and Opera combined.
I've uninstalled Sammy's browser because it sux!
Wish I could say that about bixby and other useless Sammy "features".
Can't wait to root my S8+.

No default browser can bring best web-surfing experience, except Safari on iOS. Chrome is just 90% close to it.

The best browser in android = The worse browser in iOS

Isn't it funny that the majority of people in this comment section don't use Samsung and are just complaining about it being 'useless'. It's my favourite browser to use as I don't like Google Chrome on mobile.

There's a lot to like in Samsung's browser. The "jump to top" buttons, the side scrolling button, built in ad blocker, drag down to reload, QUICK ACCESS (this is mainly why i can't switch to other browser because everytime you want to jump to other sites you just one tap away from the search bar, so convenient unlike bookmarks), and if you use samsung phone you also can use the built in dictionary everytime you highlight a word. Been using this for so long and constantly trying new browsers but can't find anything better.

I love using Samsung internet on my Lg V30 - It works flawlessly. I upgraded to version 9, but so many things are wrong with it. A lot of website I visit don't render properly. I cannot sign in to sync my bookmarks. And, I cannot login to various forums that I frequent. It's a shame, as I like the UI changes.
I reverted back to the last 8. version and all is good.

Unless you were testing Samsung Browser without AdBlock Plus, there's no chance that Chrome loads anything faster. Also, SB has a better interface with everything important at the bottom, easy for faster and one-handed use. Also, the side scrollbar and "jump to top of page" button make things even faster.

It is fully possible that Chrome loads sites faster, it just doesn't fix the constant stuttering and lag because of all of the usage data collection going on.
And there are ways to stop Google entirely with Android. For instance with an Android firmware from /e/
