Samsung Internet browser now makes browsing on tall screens a lot easier

You can now move the URL bar to the bottom.

What you need to know

  • Samsung's Internet browser has added an option to move the URL bar to the bottom.
  • The new capability was included in a beta version of the browser that was released earlier this month.
  • The mobile browser has also received a number of new security and usability enhancements.

Samsung's Internet browser is well-known for its handy bottom navigation bar. Now, that section of the browser has received a new update, which should make browsing a lot easier on smartphones with tall screens like the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The mobile browser has added the ability to move the URL bar from its typical place at the top of the screen to the bottom. As per the update's changelog, first spotted by a reader at MSPoweruser, the most recent change comes in handy when you browse the web in one-handed mode.

If the UI change looks familiar, it's because a similar feature is available in Apple's Safari browser in iOS 15. However, it's worth noting that Safari isn't the first browser to provide this experience: Windows Phone 8 and higher had it long before Apple, and Samsung has now followed suit.

The feature, however, is optional, and you can enable it by going to the Settings menu and then selecting the Layout and menu section. You will then be able to change the position of the address bar.

In addition, there are other significant features alongside the URL bar placement. These features either improve the usability or security of the Internet browser, including its Smart Anti-Tracking capability, which prevents tracking by using small pixel images. In addition, the browser now has a better search experience in the URL bar, as well as a new feature that prioritizes HTTPS connections.

These features are available in the most recent Play Store version of the Samsung Internet Browser app (v16.0.2.19), following a beta test earlier this month. The best part is that the browser is not limited to Samsung's best Android phones, but can also be downloaded on other devices.

Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://

HBO just canceled this comedy, despite its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

HBO has canceled animated comedy after three seasons.  Close Enough was created by JG Quintel, the man behind cult comedy Regular Show, who also topped the bill of voice actors, which included Gabrielle Walsh, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn, Jessica DiCicco, James Adomian and Danielle Brooks. Close Enough followed Josh and Emily – and their young daughter Candice – a couple in their late 30s, who live in a Los Angeles duplex with their divorced friends, Alex and Bridgette. The show chronicled their lives as they dealt with everyday challenges, with things frequently taking surreal and sci-fi style turns.  Originally intended to air on TBS in 2017, after a series of delays, the show debuted on HBO Max in 2020. Three seasons of eight episodes each have been broadcast, with the most recent season coming to a close in early April of 2022.  The show has featured a number of high-profile guest stars during its run, including the likes of Jane Lynch, Henry Winkler, "Weird Al"
