When it comes to mobile browsers, there are several popular choices, such as Safari for iOS devices and Google Chrome for Android. However according Korean publication, Etnews, it seems that Samsung wants in on the mobile browser game as well and it has been reported that the Korean company is interested in building a mobile browser of its own, which we’re assuming will compete against Apple’s Safari and Google Chrome. Just like the previously mentioned browsers, Samsung’s version will allegedly also be based on the open source Webkit. If Samsung’s plans do come to fruition, future Samsung customers can expect to see Samsung’s browser come installed (and possibly set as a default) on their devices.
Given that Samsung has previously attempted a mobile operating system of its own, Bada, and ChatON which was designed to compete against popular instant messengers like WhatsApp, BBM, iMessage and etc., we guess the notion of Samsung creating their own browser isn’t a stretch of the imagination. However until we see the app for ourselves, we suggest taking this with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Are you interested in seeing a Samsung mobile browser or do you think that they might be stretching themselves too thin?
