Our Android smartphones are actually more portable than our PCs and that’s why it’s so easy and natural to carry it around anywhere we find ourselves.
Well, that’s not just the reason why we can’t give our Android smartphones a break.
Another interesting reason is that, we now do a whole lot of super cool stuffs with our smartphones than we used to do before.
But, do you also use your smartphone to do 90% of most of your downloads?
Well, no matter how unsure you might be, the truth is, you have and still use your smartphone to download files online and save it to your device or transfer it to the computer.
Most times when I decide to use my smartphone instead of my PC to download large files is because the PC’s battery might run down when I least expect it.
I don’t like taking careless chances.
We find ourselves always using our web browsers to download files, which is very okay.
Did you know there are Android browsers and apps that are tailored to make downloading large or small files as easy as possible?
Well, let’s just say I don’t want to know whether you knew or not.

One interesting feature of Pufin Android browser is the ability to download over to a cloud storage.

Being one of best web browsers on mobile and PC, Google Chrome has always been my favourite browser for browsing and downloading files.
Google Chrome has a very clean user interface, and with the latest update, it looks and feels so good.
