    Even though I'm mainly an iPhone user but I have used nexus 4, nexus 5, Original Moto x and Samsung note 3 for short period of time when they came out.

    Nexus 5 price has really become attractive as it still runs latest android 6.0 very smoothly and gets all the latest security updates. So I got one this week not to replace my 6s plus but as an opportunity to check out google's latest software.

    What's the best browser on android? I really want to have Adblock and full screen mode. Reader mode is nice but not must have.

    So far I have tried Firefox, javelin and maxthon. I have heard great things about javelin and loved it's interface. But can't find its Adblock function. And for some reason it drops a lot of frames on the nexus 5 when scrolling. It's the only browser I have tried so far has a transparent navigation bar at the bottom and status bar on top which I love. Coming to a small screen on nexus 5 it's really nice to have that.

    Firefox is fine but I feel like I prefer maxthon a bit more. But their full screen mode only hide the address bar on top but still has solid black navigation bar at the bottom and no transparent status bar like javelin. Any other browser I don't know about has transparent status bar and navigation bar?

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Dolphin is considered by many the best browser for Android. It has an Adblocker as well and whole bunch of different add-ons.
