How to open websites in the background [Android Guide]

Browsing via Google Chrome or other browsers on your Android device is good but not the best when there is a way to open websites in the background while you continue to use the app without interrupting. It is always annoying when you’re interrupted by a link you see inside an app such as a link someone messaged you on WhatsApp that directs you to a browser app and you have to tap the recent button to get back to WhatsApp.


If you are a social bee and you spend too much time on social networks, there’s a good chance that you may accidentally tap the links often without even noticing it, and a chrome or any other browser app comes right in the middle of the screen interrupting your social experience.

Even if you tap the links from the within the app to see the website or read an article, it still creates a mess opening the browser window and somehow your current task is obstructed. So, What I going to show you is something that browses the websites a lot easier and that will simply amaze you without interrupting and leaving any of your tasks you are currently doing.
