Not my app, just found in a Reddit post--tried it, it's amazing. Basically, whatever you're using right now is probably inferior. I used Boat Browser, then Chrome extensively. Dabbled in Dolphin, Firefox, Maxthon, and a few others. Habit Browser beats them all handily. Amazingly, it's free!!!

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...y.HabitBrowser

Best mostly unique features of HB (Habit Browser):
  • Set URL re-directs: don't you hate when XDA forum links from a Google search don't open Tapatalk? HB allows you to add new URL re-directs to apps (as many as you want)
  • Customize EVERY toolbar: customize the address bar, tab toolbar, and browsing toolbar (back, forward, refresh, home) to 1) go away 2) place exactly where you want them (top, bottom, this toolbar on top of that, etc.), 3) change the buttons (with swiping and long-press functionality), 4) themes, and lots more
  • Set a real home-page, meaning it will open when you open a new tab.
  • Pie control.
  • Gestures for flicking that DO NOT require another "interface" (like Dolphin's odd implementation).
  • A bajiillion more. Not even kidding; easily over 100 options.

The first three sold it to me instantly ("sold"...it's ACTUALLY FREE). I implore you to try it, not because I like it, but because it will change your Android browsing experience for the better.

I have to say this is a really feature rich browser and highly customizable.Besides the ui which is not so polished I am really impressed.
