Watch out, Chrome

Amazon has secretly launched an Android web browser app in India, that’s designed to use minimal storage and data.

“Internet: fast, lite and private,” the title says on Google Play, and promises to be “lighter than the competition.”

The app first appeared on the Play Store in March, and has fewer than 1,000 downloads, according to data from app store intelligence firm Sensor Tower.

It’s only available to users in India and on devices running Android 5.0 or higher.

Perks and Benefits 

1. The new browser is a very small download — it’s less than 2 MB in size. That’s much smaller than other browsers, including Chrome (21MB), Edge (54.5MB), Firefox (19.9MB) and Opera (14.7MB), according to an analysis by appFigures.

2. The browser’s description also says the app is “private,” so it doesn’t ask for extra permissions or collect private data like other browsers do.

3. The browser additionally supports Private tabs, so you can browse without saving visits to your history

4. Other features like tab previews, an automatic full-screen mode and integrated news reader of sorts.
