    I have an Android SmartPhone.

    I did have FireFox but it had so many Settings and did so many things I got Rid of it.

    I do not want Chrome on My Computer or SmartPhone.

    I wanted to Know if there is any Small Lightweight Basic Web Browser for SmartPhones?

    Can anybody help?

    I have Samsung browser. You don't need to have a Samsung device to download and use it. (One of my internet friends who doesn't have a Samsung device loaded it on an android tablet and likes it.)
    I also had Brave on my old phone. I haven't installed it on my new phone yet. I tend to surf on my tablet or chromebook rather than on a phone because of the larger screen size.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sec.android.app.sbrowser&gl=US
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brave.browser&gl=US

    Try them both and if you don't like one or both, then delete them.

    This is supposed to be lightweight but there is a learning curve. I can't help you with it because I've never used it.

    I always wanted to Ask about WebSites Tracking You?

    They Say Duck Duck Go Search Engine and Duck Duck Go Browser Stop WebSites from Tracking You.

    But am I Right if You can go on YouTube of any WebSite and Play a Video the WebSite is Tracking You?

    But if You can not Play a Video the WebSite is not Tracking You?

    Do I have this Right?

    If you have an android phone, google knows a lot about you. The phone probably logs in to a gmail account. You download apps from googleplay
    You update the apps through googleplay.
    YouTube is now owned by google since 2006.

    What DuckDuckGo does, is stops tracking your searches.

    If you don't want to be tracked by google, switch to an iPhone and you can have Apple tracking you.

    I do Know all of that thank You for the Time.

    But if I use My Duck Duck Go on My Phone or DeskTop and go to YouTube.

    Then I Look Up a Video if it Plays does this not Tell Me YouTube is Tracking Me?

    If I go to any WebSite and can Play a Video does this not Tell Me the WebSite is Tracking Me?
