I use opera touch and love it. But I'm always down to try a new app.

Would you say it's better?

Based on Chrome, if you count that as an advantage; I don't particularly do.

Advantage #1: Fast
Advantage #2: Plays media sound in the background
Advantage #3: Ad Blocker

And it really does play in the background, even when you switch tabs, open other apps, and turn off the screen.
And it really does do a great job at blocking ads without root, including removing commercials from videos, and preventing pop-ups and redirects from less legit sites you'd expect to encounter that sort of thing.

And if you consider both Advantage #1 and Advantage #2 together, then it basically gives you YouTube Red perks like playing music from videos in the background or with the screen off, without ads.

It depends, I've never used opera, but kiwi browser is going to feel a lot like Chrome but it's ad block feature is miles above any ad block software I've tried on Android. It's as good as that root ad block app I used to use before I stopped rooting

I use kiwi for normal browsing and Chrome for picture-in-picture mode so I can watch shows in a little window as I browse on kiwi or play a game

Would be perfect if the text in night mode was easier to read. It's a darker grey than any other night browser I've tried.

Just found a fix for that. Unbelievably, the latest Kiwi supports Chrome extensions, which is amazing. Chrome Dark Reader makes the text more readable. Surprised nobody else had this issue before, though.
