Samsung Internet believes in enhancing the user experience, privacy and usability with each upgrade. We have a lot of exciting features ranging from URL bar at the bottom to web engine upgrade in store for our users with our latest update. Check out a quick overview of the latest offerings below.

Move URL bar to bottom

To improve accessibility of search, we have introduced an option to move the URL bar to the bottom of the page. You can choose the position of the address bar as per your convenience.

 

To change the position of the address bar, go to More -> Settings -> Layout and menu -> Address bar position and select the desired position (Top or Bottom)

Smart Protect against ‘Tracking Pixels’

Samsung Internet further enhances user privacy in its latest update by introducing ‘Smart protect against tracking pixels’. The web is surrounded by trackers and ‘pixel’ is used by one of them. Tracking pixel is a very small, almost invisible graphic of 1x1 pixels which is used by websites to gather your personal information such as device operating system, IP address, and activities on a website, etc. Smart protect will find and block this tracker to protect your privacy.

Enhanced search experience in the address bar

Search experience has been taken a notch higher by introducing intuitive search suggestions in the address bar. A suggestion list is provided while typing the search keywords in the address bar. Order of the search results is as below:

  1. Results that are preloaded domains or answer suggestions
  2. Search suggestions related to user input
  3. Bookmarks and history suggestions

Page zoom- support on phone/tablet

A first of its kind for mobile browsers, the ‘Zoom’ feature enables users to zoom in to the webpage with ease.

 

To zoom the webpage, go to More -> Zoom -> slide the slider to the amount of zoom you desire and click on OK.

Show Go to Bottom button

A button to go straight to the bottom of the webpage had been provided in the earlier versions.

 

You can now control the visibility of this button by going to More -> Settings -> Webpage view and scrolling -> Show Go to bottom button

In addition to the above, a new extension ‘Subtitles’ has been added in the more menu which will provide subtitles in your preferred language and the Web Engine has been upgraded to Chromium M92.
