Xiaomi may be known as a hardware-centric company today, but the Chinese technology major started off with software. One of Xiaomi s first products is MIUI, the custom Android overlay that s still used on majority of its smartphones. The company has now launched another software product a browser app called Mint.

About 11MB in size, Xiaomi s new Mint browser is billed as a lightweight alternative to popular resource-intensive browser apps like Google Chrome. However, the app is anything but lightweight when it comes to features. Some of the key functionalities of Mint Browser include integrated voice search, which lets you look up information and navigate to websites by just speaking to your smartphone.

Then there s data saver, which can come in handy if you re on a limited data plan. Like other browsers, this feature works by preventing images and other data-heavy elements on webpages from getting loaded. Private browsing lets you access confidential websites without having to worry about the browser tracking your browsing history. There s even a reading mode that reduces eye-strain during night-time browsing by turning browser elements and webpages dark.

There s no dearth of feature-laden mobile browser apps, so Xiaomi s Mint browser already has its work cut out for itself. However, if Xiaomi decides to integrate the app into MIUI and preload it on the millions of smartphones it ships every quarter, that could really help in turning the tide in favor of Mint. The browser is available for download from Google Play store. However, in case you can t find it, you can also search for the app s APK and side-load it on to your smartphone.
