Cheats and secrets of the Samsung browser for Android (for all smartphones)

Not everyone knows that the browser that is installed by Samsung on its phones can be installed on all smartphones and, surprisingly, it's not bad at all.
The Samsung browser is a rather recent app, introduced last year and improved over time with the addition of many small functions that have made it a worthy and valid alternative compared to the usual names like Firefox and Chrome.
The Samsung browser works well, has a clean and clear interface similar to Chrome and hides interesting and important tricks and secrets such as, for example, the night mode, the quick menu and an innovative management of favorites and secret mode.

1) Quick menu
The most interesting feature of the Samsung browser, which is immediately evident at the first start, is that of the quick menu, a mobile button that appears on the browser in transparency, which allows quick access to the main options.
In particular, there are buttons to share the web page, to activate night mode, to open a new tab, to change the text size of the web page.
The feature is enabled by default, but you can also remove it by tapping on the three-dot menu icon in the address bar at the top right, going to Extensions and disabling the Quick Menu option.
You can also remove the quick menu by holding down the icon and dragging it on the Remove icon at the top.
The quick menu can also be customized by touching it and then pressing on the gear button.
You can therefore leave the quick menu active by removing one or more buttons instead.
2) Fast scrolling of the page
If you encounter a long page, to get to the bottom immediately or to go back up after reading it all, you can quickly scroll through a page, holding your finger on the cursor on the scroll bar on the right and then dragging it up or towards the bass.
To go back up from the bottom of a page, just tap the button that appears in the center, with the arrow pointing up.
3) Open the links in a new tab, in the background
Opening links in the background is very convenient for opening different sites, for example different search results, without leaving the page, in order to check them and read them one after the other in sequence.
While all Internet browsers have the ability to open a clicked link on a web page in a new tab, on the Samsung browser you can keep tapped on a link to find the option that opens it in the background.
4) Card management
If you open two or more tabs, you can manage them by touching the tab button at the bottom right.
The preview screen of the open tabs allows you to close them all in one touch, to activate the secret mode and then to open a new tab.
To switch between tabs, you can also swipe your finger from right to left over the address bar.
5) Secret mode
As seen, in the card management mode it is possible to use the secret mode which is a rather original trick and missing in other popular browsers.
The Secret mode offered by Samsung is like Google's incognito mode, plus the ability to save secret favorites and password protect them.
The secret mode is therefore a section of the browser independent of the normal mode, to keep the stored sites secret and password protected.
6) Favorites management
In the Samsung Internet Browser, you can quickly add the open site to the favorites list by tapping the star button in the upper left of the address bar.
The Samsung Internet allows you to add a web page to Quick Access, to the Android home screen or to saved pages (for offline reading) by touching and holding the Favorites button on the bottom bar.
You can also organize your favorites by creating folders, from the Favorites screen, by tapping on the three dot icon in the upper right corner.
7) Quick access
In addition to favorites, sites can be added to quick access by tapping on the Favorites button and holding down.
Quick access appears by tapping on the address bar of the Samsung Browser.
When the icons of the sites in quick access appear, you can make additions and changes by pressing the relative buttons.
8) History Management
The history of the Samsung browser can be viewed from the Favorites menu or even by holding down the back button in the bottom bar.
Note that Samsung separates the normal history of the sites visited from the history of the videos watched on the browser, which then become easier to retrieve and review.
9) Sharing favorites and chronology
From the screen that lists the favorites and also from the history, you can press the top button Share to share one or more sites on social networks, by email or on Whatsapp.
10) Night mode and reading mode
The Samsung Internet browser has a night mode which can be activated via the quick menu.
The night mode works really well, brings a black background to all the sites and changes the colors of the web pages in order to soften the annoying blue lights for the eyes.
In addition to the night mode, there is also a more hidden reading mode, which transforms web pages into clear, uninterrupted text.
This reading mode is only available for some sites and can be activated when buying an icon with an R on the left on the address bar.
11) Download videos
Interestingly, with the Samsung browser, you can download videos from websites easily
When you see a video, touch and hold it to see the download button appear.
12) Samsung Browser settings
Among the main settings of the SAmsung Browser, accessible from the button with three dots at the top right, we have:
- change the location where to save the files downloaded from the internet, going to Settings> Advanced (only if there is an SD card).
- change the default search engine.
- activate the QR code scanner, in Extensions .
- activate the synchronization of favorites on Samsung accounts.
13) Sync your bookmarks with Chrome
For those who use Chrome on PC, you can synchronize your favorites by installing the Samsung Browser Chrome extension.
The Samsung browser for Android can be downloaded to any smartphone from the Google Play Store
