Reliance Jio recently launched a new web browser called JioPages built on the Chromium Blink engine. The browser comes with a slew of features including Emoji domain support, localized news content curation, a smart download manager, incognito browsing, and encrypted connection. It also offers support for eight Indian languages including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Bengali.
The browser can be installed from the Google Play Store. Reliance Jio has not currently released an iOS version of JioPages and it can only be installed on Android smartphones at this time. Users can also choose the application language and set regional settings from different states.
The company also states that browsers come with web security and data privacy. This means you can take advantage of the built-in PIN-locked mode and the built-in Adblock Plus. Additionally, users have the option to choose a default search engine that gives them several options such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, Duck Duck Go, and JioPages. Users can also select the browser’s dark mode theme and custom browser theme.
Currently, JioPages is designed in India, but its core Chromium Blink engine was developed with the contributions of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Opera Software, Adobe Systems and others. Reliance Jio further states that the Chromium Blink Engine helps with excellent web page rendering, faster page loading, efficient media streaming, Emoji domain support, and user encrypted communication. ..
