iii. user agent rules

A user agent is a bit of text sent by a browser so that web sites can decide which version of a web page to display. A browser could identify itself as running on "mobile Android" or "desktop Windows" and a web server may use this information to return a mobile-optimized or full desktop version of a web page.

Usually, you will keep the user agent set to your preference: for example "desktop". However, you may notice that some sites work better when you request the mobile Android version. In these cases, long press the user agent button on the browser's bottom menu and set a rule to always use the Android user agent for this site. From now on, the browser will use the user agent rule that you have set instead of your usual preference. Long press to change or disable the rule.

iv. image rules

Images are great but they delay page load times and scrolling, and are often not needed to enjoy the web. Turning off images not only saves major bandwidth, it can actually improve your web surfing experience. Turn images off, or only show when on WIFI. Load pix on demand and set rules so pix always show on some sites.
1) Do app options > Images > turn off images or only over WIFI
2) Image button displays in browser bottom menu. Press to temporarily load images for a site **
3) If you always want images to display on the current site, long press the image icon. This step can be done in place of step 2 above to load and make a rule all at once.
** On some older devices, page reload sometimes required.

v. cookie whitelist

Cookies are bits of text used by sites to store information in browsers, like remembering that you are logged in to a site. However, advertisers use cookies to track you and cookies require extra bandwidth.

Most people leave cookies turned on, which is OK, but you can create a whitelist so that cookies are only kept for sites that you approve.
1) Go options > Data options > Cookies clear on exit, and turn it on.
2) A cookie icon displays in the browser's bottom menu. Toggle it on for sites (like so that they can store cookies.
3) Use the browser's exit button to clear all cookies and leave only those you have whitelisted.

vi. block list

Web pages load data from many sources, sometimes displaying ads or malware. In newer Android versions (after Gingerbread) you can block data. Create a text file called .nbhosts.txt in your download folder. When the browser launches, it looks for this file and creates blocking filters. You can use the adblock format such as this file or the etc/hosts format also works. To reload a site allowing blocked content, long press the bottom menu "reload" button.

vii. "immersive" full screen

View web pages in true full screen by hiding system buttons for < back, O home, [ ] switch on supported devices.
1) Long press bottom menu "fill screen" button and enable the immersive checkbox.
2) Swipe in from screen edge shows hidden system buttons /\ O []
3) Set gestures to show menus and navigate back so you do not have to rely on hidden buttons.
