Samsung Internet has come a long way since its release in 2012, with frequent updates adding new features and making it a true competitor for the likes of Chrome. Earlier this month, Samsung released a new beta version of the browser that improves translation and multitasking. Version 14 came out stable last week, bringing these changes to everyone.
For a while, Samsung Internet supported opening two tabs side-by-side in a split screen, but now they can also be added as app pairs. When the app is in split screen mode, clicking on the divider now displays an “add pair” button. If you have room on the app edges bar, a pair will be added.
Flexible mode was a hallmark of last year’s foldable Galaxy devices, and Samsung Internet now supports it. When you watch a video, you can fold the device in half and move the video controls downward while it continues to play at the top. Hopefully this is an indication that more applications and services will become Flex mode compatible in the future.
