How to open Firefox pages with Chrome in Android [Tip]

Do you use multiple browsers while browsing the web in Android? Are you using both Chrome and Firefox? If your answer is yes, then haven’t you thought of a way to easily open a page from Firefox with Chrome? For example, let’s just say that a page fails to load properly in Firefox so you decided to try and open it with Chrome. If you follow the usual way, then you need to copy the page URL first and then paste it in Chrome. Well, there’s a Firefox mobile add-on that lets you do that in just a tap of a button!

Before we start:

  • Make sure that you’ve already installed the Firefox and Chrome apps on your Android tablet or smartphone.

    Try the android app “browser switch”. It’s free, it’s got zero ads, and I love it. You basically use the share menu.. Choose browser switch, it gives you a list of your installed briwsers, you pick one, and it opens the page in that browser. So you can open any page on any browser in any other browswer. I love it.
