Samsung launched the updated, 4.0 version of its Internet browser in February. The updated version brought along a number of new changes to the browser settings. Samsung’s very own Internet browser was made available to all the exclusive company’s handsets including the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5. However, the older devices were deprived of this updated privilege. So, if you were willing to use the browser on an old Galaxy Smartphone, this is the time to fulfill your desire.
All the old Samsung Galaxy devices are now allowed to install the updated version of the Samsung Internet Browser. The devices which are eligible for this update include the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the Galaxy Note 3. All the devices which are at least running on the Android 5.0 Lollipop will also be able to install the Samsung Internet Browser.

Still, if you are not impressed by the new update or are dubious if to install it or not, remember that the Samsung Internet Browser now comes with a lot of significant updates and improvements. Different new features have been announced including, the ability to launch online videos in a popup window, support for ad blocking extensions, and the permission to browse the internet while the video is playing in the foreground too. There is even a “Secret Mode” which will let you hide all your online activities from the public.
Samsung has also widened the availability of its Internet Browser to Verizon sold Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Verizon phones didn’t ship with the pre-installed Samsung browser. The users were not available to install the device from Google Play, but that was only until now. The new update has resolved the carrier’s issue too. This is another plus apart from announcing the ability to install the Samsung Internet Browser in old Galaxy devices.
