Samsung Internet Browser Beta Community Report

Samsungs's latest beta update for their Internet Browser application comes with an updated user interface that follows their One UI launch and its design language philosophy. One UI, already released for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 series, focuses on improving one-handed usability on larger-screen devices by shifting more of the interactive UI elements down at the bottom half of the display while keeping the rest of the additional information at the top part. Pretty smart, huh?

Besides, there is a tiny amount of other changes that can be found in the release notes on Google Play, and here they are:

Changelog

  • One-Handed UI

  • Smart Anti-Tracking

  • Save All Images

  • Bug fixes and stability enhancements

You can notice the UI changes exclusively in the settings of the browser, where options are grouped by categories into gray sections while the main background color is black whenever the Dark Theme option in your device's settings is on, considering that you are running on Android Oreo 8.1 and newer. It is great to see something like this being implemented.

The second new thing with this update is Smart Anti-Tracking, which should at least, in theory, disable tracking/cookies, enforced by many websites these days to collect user data. You can toggle it on from the Privacy and security section in the settings.

And at last, the Save All Images option highlighted in the changelog shows up whenever you long-press on an image on a site and allows you to download all image files from it at once. This is definitely going to be useful for many people, as it also allows saving particular images too.

Overall, a pretty nice update. I would just like to add to the end that the English translations for the app and its Play Store release notes do include some mistakes and need a bit of extra attention.
