Hello Mi Fans,
How are you all? Web browsers are one of the most important apps for our devices. Having the right features and performance while browsing the web can literally change your entire experience. Finding the right one can be difficult because there are so many options and the face of the web is changing all the time. Today, I am going to take you all through the journey of one such browser : Mint Browser
Mint browser is a lightweight web browser designed by Xiaomi for android devices. Once you open the app it would straight take you to the home page. Mint browser does not have any News feed like we are familiar to see in google or chrome app. Instead, here just below the address bar you will find different popular websites like Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Wikipedia etc followed by the option to add shortcuts of your favorite sites. You would be prompted to set Mint Browser as your default browser to enjoy high speed and enhanced web browsing experience. In case you have different preference for default one. choose to skip it.
Before exploring the features, one thing to mention here is when you open the app for the first time, you can sign in with your google account. It would help you to sync your search history, saved pages, bookmarks etc. If you wanna have a fresh start, skip the log in part. Now let's have a look at the features.
Night Mode & Block Ads: Talking about Night mode, it is to give your eyes relief by dimming the screen brightness at night time. Mint browser has a built-in ad blocker. It's an useful feature to avoid advertisements popping up here and there. It makes web pages look neater and also saves mobile data. But remember, some websites may load slower when this feature is on.
Incognito Mode & Reduce Data usage: Incognito mode is self explanatory. You can search and browse more securely. Mint browser does not collect any information when you are browsing on this mode. But the files you download and the bookmarks you add will still be saved. Reduce Data usage works for data compression.
Translate & Find on page: Its a very important feature. You can translate any page to your required language. Once you enable this option, every time you open a page, you would see the translate button in the top right corner of the address bar. Mint browser gives you a list of available language in which you want the page to be translated. Find on page search within the app is similar to Chrome’s CTRL-F function on its desktop browser. You can find any word you want easily. Like I am looking for the word "English" here

Settings: Well here is a lot of things you can do. You can set incognito as default mode of browsing, set your preferred search engines, change web page text size etc. Google is obviously default search engine. Other than that you can choose any other like Yahoo, Bing, etc. For text size you would get to choose from Tiny, small, normal large and huge. Coming to the advanced settings, you can disable cookies, java script, block pop ups and many more. The multi window management gives you two view - Vertical and horizontal. Lastly, you get an option to configure user agents - Android, Desktop, iPhone,or iPad.

Mint browser specially impresses me with its small size and fast loading speed. It's user friendly and minimal & clean interface would surely make you fall for it. It has plenty of features to make your browsing experience more comfortable. In built ad blocker, translator makes the browsing journey smoother. But there are also scope of improvements too. On a whole I would surely recommend it.
I will give Mint Browser 4.5 out of 5
