It competes with Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Brave, and many open-source alternatives in addition to the web browser found on Apple products, Safari. While each browser has its positives and negatives, developers rely on metrics like browser benchmarks to determine the area where a particular offering shines. Speedometer is one such benchmark tool — it was set up by Apple's WebKit team back in 2014 — but it's only seen one major upgrade and that was way back in 2018. Well, the WebKit team is now joining up with folks on the Chrome and Firefox sides to develop the next big iteration of the benchmark service, unsurprisingly named Speedometer 3.

༺ཌༀUpbkPༀད༻ Android Police - Feed http://qsk21.com/samsung-switch-more-competitive-2023/ Samsung's phones are some of the best Android phones you can get, especially so if you look at the premium products the company puts out. They're often regarded as being feature-rich and uncompromising. But the company also seems to understand that in order to go straight for Apple's neck, it needs to go all-in. That's why in 2023, Samsung may be shifting its strategy to keep phones competitive and powerful, rather than devoting a lot of resources into cost reduction — which could lead to the best Samsung Galaxy S23 lineup yet.

꧁༺△YWSbs△༻꧂ Android Police - Feed http://qsk21.com/samsung-exynos-smartphone-soc-dying/ Samsung is the single-biggest player in the smartphone business, and that's probably not a situation that's going to change anytime soon. Companies this large love to broadcast just how self-reliant they are, and for years now Samsung phones have stood out by featuring the firm's own Exynos chips. Recently, though, reports have suggested that Samsung's approach to mobile silicon is changing, taking Exynos out of the spotlight and even seeing Samsung extend its partnership with Qualcomm. Now, a new industry report further reaffirms suspicions that Samsung could be moving away from Exynos chips for smartphones.

There are plenty of third-party browsers out in the wild, and one of the best browsers for Android is a historical rival of Chrome, Mozilla Firefox. The browser is far from its days of market domination, but it's still a very solid option in its own right and one of the few browsers out there that's not based on Chromium. Version 108 is now available for Android smartphones, and it comes with a series of improvements and additions to make your browsing experience better.

꧁❦༺qpNVn༻❦꧂ Android Police - Feed http://qsk21.com/android-13-qpr2-beta-1-pixel-6-7-series-arm-gpu-driver-vulnerability-patch/ A few weeks ago, Google's Project Zero security research team tore the bandage off on disclosing patched exploits affecting the driver for Arm's Mali GPUs — components found in millions upon millions of Android phones. The sting, however, came from the fact that manufacturers had and still have yet to pass the patches onto their end users some five months (and counting) after Arm did its part. Google itself has had a share of the blame, but, with Android 13 QPR2 Beta 1, it's well on its way to catching up and making sure that Pixel owners and everyone in Android Land remain safe.
