Fastest Lightest Free Google Android Web Browsers for older + slower Smartphones/Tablets

Lightweight web browser for Google Android

Many older, and slower Google Android smartphones, and tablets are now too slow to run a lot of popular Google Android web browsers well. Some web browsers and bigger websites need a newer smartphones, and tablets with a Quad-Octa core CPU, 2GB of RAM, more free storage space, and faster video chip to display mobile and full desktop websites quickly without slowdown problems.

If you own a slower, and older Google Android smartphone or tablet, or want a more faster running, and lightweight web browser, using an alternative lightweight web browser would make browsing on Google Android faster, and smoother even on devices with less RAM, less storage, use a slower CPU, and use an older version of Google Android like Gingerbread 2.3, and Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. Using Lightweight web browsers on a faster smartphone like the Galaxy S6, Nexus 5, Nexus 9, Shield Tablet, Oppo One Plus One, and Galaxy Note 4 would make web browsing very fast on faster devices, and should improve multi-tasking as well when you have multiple tabs, and other apps open at once.

Many lightweight web browsers still have features like tab web browsing, autofill forms, autofill passwords, downloads manager, bookmarks, speed dial bookmarks, private browsing, HTML5 support, and Flash video support which is built-into its browser. Some light web browsers also have support for installing add-ons, and extensions to add even more features to the web browsers.

Some lightweight web browsers have features like data saving browsing mode, user agent changer, RSS news reader, online bookmark sync, full screen browsing mode, offline web browsing, More Advance Private browsing mode, Text-only web browsing mode, and Nightmode reading mode which are not available on web browsers which are not as lightweight or fast.

Switching from the regular mobile web browser in Google Android to a lightweight web browser is not as hard on Google Android compared to switching from a popular desktop web browser to a less popular lightweight desktop web browser because I don’t use any third-party plug-ins like Adobe Flash, Java, and Silverlight, and I also don’t use Web Apps, and extensions/add-ons which I use on a desktop web browser. I mainly just use my mobile web browsers to read news posts on blogs, watch online videos on YouTube, Search on Search engines, download files, check e-mail, and do other basic web browsing tasks which almost all regular mobile web browsers with HTML, CSS, HTML5, and JavaScript support can do the tasks I want them to do.

I used many Google Android web browsers over the past few years on my older Kobo Vox Tablet with a 800MHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of storage, and my Asus Nexus 7 2012 tablet with a Nvidia Tegra 3 1.3 GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. I also reviewed many Google Android web browsers on this site. Here is my list of faster Google Android web browsers which should run quickly even if your Google Android smartphone or tablet is slower and older. Some of these web browsers I used on my Google Android tablet and reviewed. I also added some lightweight web browsers which other people recommended on Google Android, and smartphone apps related forums, blogs, and Google Play’s Android App store.

Some lightweight browsers can help you save data by using website compression technology, script-blockers, Picture blockers, flash blockers, and video blockers which will make you use less data. Using less data may make your battery life longer because your smartphone is not downloading a lot of data.

Fast light Free Google Android Web Browsers

Naked Browser

Naked Browser is a very lightweight web browser which only needs 115 K of space on your storage drive to download its app. It has a simple user interface which does not use a lot of screen space which is great for smaller screen smartphones. I also like that I can adjust the height of the tabs to 3 lines to make long titles of websites fit the whole tab area, and make tabs easier to close by double taping on them, and selecting them by single tapping them. There are also not any un-needed permissions to help protect your privacy. It has most of the useful browser features like speed dial bookmarks, bookmarks, History, tabs, flash and JavaScript support, Crash restore, undo closed tabs, infinite tabs, customizable search engine link, full screen browsing mode, resizeable tab heights, exit button, etc. Naked Browser is also free with no ads on its app, and no anonymous tracking like other web browser. This web browser is the best web browser for power users who want a lightweight, and fast web browser, but still want useful web browser features like tabs, bookmarks, start page bookmarks, history, HTML5, Flash support, and JavaScript support to access content rich websites like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. I am now using Naked Browser as my main web browser since it has all the features I need, and it opens and runs quickly after I launch it from my homescreen launcher. The website load times are also very fast even on bigger desktop websites.

Opera Mini is one of the best known lightweight web browsers because it compresses websites’ html tags, and images to use less bandwidth/data to help mobile users save data, and money by using less data while browsing the web with Opera Mini. Using less Data also means websites load faster even on slower wireless connections. In my experience, I save over 90% of my data when I set the image quality to low in the Data Savings options. You can also disable News Discovery, so news articles are not shown on the homepage. Disabling News Discovery may save data by stopping images from news articles from loading. Opera Mini features tab browsing, private incognito tab browsing, offline saved page reading, downloads manager, speed dial bookmarks, rss feed reader, Opera Link Bookmark sync, bookmark folder manager, swipe touch gestures, visual tab gallery, offline saved pages, News Discovery, sharing, and a new simple user interface which works great on smartphones and tablets. JavaScript also seems to be disabled in Opera Mini to make it work faster. It is only 2.8M in size, and work on Google Android 2.3 and up, so it would work on very old smartphones.

I mainly use Naked Browser on my tablet since I mostly use my web browser to visit my favorite sites which I have bookmarked in Naked Browser. Naked Browser opens up quickly, fully loads websites in seconds, scrolls smoothly, has tabs, and rarely crashes, and freezes when I visit most of my favorite websites on the internet with Naked Browser. It also lets me use a custom website search engine like Dogpile by adding in the search keyword URL in to the Search settings which is a feature which is not found on many other mobile web browser. It is also easy to switch to full screen mode and access my bookmarks by swiping left from my screen.

I sometimes use Opera Mini as well when the internet or wifi connection is very slow where loading a big websites which can be many MBs in size, and take many seconds to download on a slower internet wifi connection.

    After naked browser, which browser with Adblock do you prefer? Ghostery?

        • Johnson Yip April 2, 2016, 4:35 pm

          Opera Mini is a good choice for using for saving battery life since it runs pretty quickly even on very old devices. It also compresses websites, so they use less data and power when downloading. Opera Mini now works better with most websites because of updates which Opera release for it.

          • Igor April 3, 2016, 6:38 pm

            Thanks for all the comments you posted on this topic.

            I installed Dee Browser : AdBlock Browser from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.zew.deebrowser . Dee Browser runs pretty fast on my Asus Nexus 7 2012, and Nvidia Shield tablet. It also has a few other useful features like Integrated Google Translator, Reading, Private & Offline reading browsing modes.

    Hi again. I tested all the browsers you mentioned and the less RAM usage are naked and ghostery. Have you found diferent? Thanks for the help.

    • Johnson Yip May 23, 2016, 4:49 pm


      Brave Browser was released recently. It is a lightweight browser. It has ad blocking, tracker protection and Https Everywhere. It is not a full featured web browser like Firefox, but it runs pretty quickly in my experience, and has a unique user interface and way of browsing the web with Link Bubble Windows.
