    I just do basic web searching on my I Phone. Are there any advantages to using Dolphin, Opera, Chrome, etc, over Safari?

    Thanks

    I use Chrome because it syncs my bookmarks, saved passwords, history, etc. between my iPhone, Windows laptops and desktops, Mac, and Android phone.

    That makes perfect sense.

    Thanks

    It's basically down to extra sync or other features that browsers might offer that might be better for you. As far as rendering goes they all pretty much use the same engine in iOS, so that's not really much of a difference. And actually in case of Safari, as of iOS 9 there are now ad-blocker options too (using 64-bit devices).

    On an iPhone Safari makes the most sense, just like Chrome does on an Android device.

    From what I've seen it seems that at times some OEM browsers can be better on Android actually (like the Samsung browser compared to Chrome, for example).

    The Samsung browser always used to crash on my favourite website, but it does use slightly less battery power.
