There’s no shortage in the number of browsers available on Android. Google’s own Chrome is the most popular, but there are plenty of reasons you might want to look elsewhere.
The CyanogenMod team (different from Cyanogen.Inc) has now announced that it too is getting into the space of building an Android browser with a project called Gello.
Gello will be based on Chromium’s open source code, but that’s pretty much the only concrete detail that has been revealed so far.
The team has also shared a short teaser video that does show a lot of features, but it isn’t clear whether they’ll make it to Cyanogen powered devices, CyanogenMod ROMs or elsewhere.
From the video we’ve spotted these features:
- Save for offline reading mode
- Tab animations and management
- Night mode and immersive mode
- Site-by-site privacy and security settings
- Ability to rename files and select file paths for downloads
No further details about Gello have been revealed at this point of time, including how soon we might be able to take the browser for a spin.
