Top 5 of The Less Known Browsers For Your iPhone
Although the iPhone comes preloaded with the Safari web browser by Apple, not everybody out there is a fan of this browser. Most people prefer to use the web browser on their iPhone which they have already been using on their desktop. For some, it may be the Google Chrome and for others, it may be the Mozilla Firefox.
While everyone just knows what the most popular browsers are, namely Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, there are some web browsers that most people don’t know about. These browsers provide more security compared to the ones I mentioned above and you should definitely try them out on your iPhone.
Here are some of those less known web browsers for your iPhone:

4. VPN Browser
Yet another Tor-powered browser that helps you secure your identity while you are surfing the web. The VPN Browser ensures that whatever sites you visit do not get your location or any kind of data about you so that you are fully protected in your browsing session.
