Xiaomi has recently published an Android browser on the Google Play Store that is fast, lite, security tight, and free of ads. We have seen recently that Xiaomi has started showing ads on all Xiaomi phones, like under file manager. But taking those ads in mind, Mint browser is launched with a good intention, and that’s why they didn’t place ads. I have used this browser for a day, and now I know everything about it. It’s really going to standout soon in the market because of its greatness. It provides high-speed surfing and all comforts like design and navigation. So, in this article, I’m going to share everything about the Mint Browser app.

It doesn’t matter where you live in this world; if you have a Xiaomi device, you can take advantage of Mint Browser. So, let me explain its feature so you can get deep insights into it.
Features of Mint Browser App
In Mint browser, there are limited and handy features because its developer wants to make it lite and fast. Also, they hadn’t implemented some necessary features like adblocker, incognito mode. For some, it may feel like a chip on the shoulder. But it’s actually worth it. However, the Mint browser runs really very fast compared to any competitive browser like Chrome, Opera Mini, Firefox, Dolphin Browser, etc.
Now, let me show you if Mint browser is rich in features or Not:
1. Reduce Data Usage
This feature basically compresses the Images on the web to reduce the data usage and load pages fast. Using this feature, you can literally save a ton of Internet data. Here Xiaomi copied this feature from the UC browser and UC Mini. In both the browser, this feature was implemented since they are launched in the market. After turning this feature on, all the images get prevented from loading, and on the place of the image, only texts will be shown. And that makes the web pages load fast even with a low Internet connection.

You can jump to the different search engines in a tap easily. Mint Browser has done a great job by adding a quick-change search engine feature. Many of us, including me, don’t like using one search engine every day. It feels really common and boring. So, if you are in the same situation and Mint Browser has got you covered here.

Do you ever get bombarded by pop-ups when you visit some web pages on the Internet? I too! You can stay away from those bombardments of pop-ups by using the Block Pop-ups feature of Mint Browser.

4. User Agent String
In most Android Browsers, we can only see the desktop mode of the web page. But in Mint Browser, a User-Agent String allows users to view web pages in Desktop, iPad, iPhone, and Android mode.
