    Opera Mini runs flawlessly regardless of bandwidth.

    Pages load fast and because the app is lightweight, it cuts down on data usage.

    Other features include a built-in ad blocker, native reading and night modes for readers or night owls.  Plus, the ability to access content using private tabs.

    The app is free for iOS and Android.

    Dolphin Mobile Browser is a free, fast, smart personal web browser with exclusive features.  These include tabbed browsing, cloud sync and gesture browsing.  You also get sonar search, speed dial, sidebar and a lot more.

    Use the app’s one-tap share feature to tweet to web pages, post them to Facebook and share via email.  Grab the content, too.

    You can also sync data with your laptop or desktop computer.

    The app is free for iOS and Android.

    Puffin Web Browser is an especially useful app for those who are trying to conserve bandwidth but still want web pages to load fast.

    Puffin uses a proprietary method of compressing pages.

    It also encrypts your data, meaning reduced opportunities for hackers to steal your valuable information.

    It has lots of syncing features, too.

    The app is free for iOS and Android.
