Next Browser From GO Launcher Development Team, Features Custom Speed Dial and Extensions

Next Broswer

The GO Launcher development team is at it again, bringing yet another application to Google Play. This time, it’s Next Browser, a browser that could compete with Google’s Chrome and the stock browser application found on most Android devices. The GO Launcher team are the ones responsible for the very popular GO Launcher, as well as GO Locker, a popular 3rd party option for lockscreen lovers, so you have to have some faith that they know what folks would want in a browser. 

Some of the features that make Next Browser stand out in a crowd are Speed Dial (a pretty bookmarks page that appears upon launching the app), Easy Search (the fancy Google Search bar), extensions for apps such as Evernote and Pocket, plus other custom GO Dev features like Next Voice and Next View.

While the browser does appear quite nice, the lack of a few features would probably turn some of you away. There is no full integration with your Google account, so saved passwords and things of that nature will not appear. Although, it does allow for the syncing of bookmarks. If you aren’t completely attached to your Google account, it could be worth the look. To check out Next Browser in action, watch the video below.

    The screenshots look like a carbon copy of Dolphin. Seriously, if you don’t like the stock Android browser or Chrome, just download Dolphin and avoid this ripoff. Shame on GO! Shame!!!

    It’s faster than chrome and looks pretty clean, but knowing GoDev it will be full of bloat soon.

    I don’t see why one would use this over Chrome, let alone stock browser. No quick controls? Oh… okay nevermind then. *shrugs shoulders and moves on*

    For as clunky as GO Sms is, I’m pleasantly surprised how well and fast this browser is.

    Lost me at “GO Dev”

  • TheDrizzle

    Looks pretty good to me. If only they had full sync support I would definitely switch from Chrome. I’ve become bored with Chrome.

    blatant ripoff of dolphin. Down with the thieving Go Dev team. Bunch of thieves. They stole it. It’s ours, they stole it from us!!!

  • mustbepbs

    Kill it with fire.

    • TheDrizzle

      What, why? It looks pretty good to me.

        Prolly meant that song.

      • mustbepbs

        I hate all GO products. They all blow chunks.

        • TheDrizzle

          I’ll ask again, why?

    I am actually in search for a browserthat I like since moving to the S4. I usually liked the stock browser but since I no longer have ads blocked the experience on Droid Life is horrendous. It was fine on my Nexus but I need to figure something out. I am now trying Dolphin…. any suggestions?

    • Kyle Cordiano

      Have you tried Opera Browser? It is not in Beta anymore and it works very nicely on my Nexus 4.

      • KleenDroid

        I will give it a try next. So far from what I’ve tried I like dolphin the best.

        • misterE33

          Dolphin fan here. I’ve tried stock, chrome and firefox (and the old opera, not the new one yet) but keep coming back

          • coolsilver

            I use Dolphin. I like the LastPass addon for it. Fast and works. Bookmark sync is kinda wonky but works as browser.

      No Chrome?
