CyanogenMod getting new Chromium based Jello web browser

The CyanogenMod team has started working with a new browser called Jello, which is based off Google's Chromium browser. This will be baked into future iterations of CyanogenMod, which is good news for devices running CyanogenMod right now.

The browser has a handful of new features that make it better than Google Chrome on Android. It is said that it brings support for offline page reading, the ability to set security preferences depending on the site and a new night mode feature built into the browser.

Unfortunately, the CyanogenMod team refrained from giving an official release date for this browser, so we might be in for a long wait. It's important to mention here that the Jello browser won't be available on Cyanogen OS running devices like the OnePlus One or the Micromax YU Yureka/Yuphoria and will only be available to those who download the CyanogenMod ROM for their Android device.

We expect Jello to be implemented in a future CyanogenMod nightly, perhaps with the Android M builds that will go official sometime later this year.

CyanogenMod is the preferred custom ROM for many, so it's certainly one of the best replacements to stock Android out there (and even better in many areas). The reason it's so widely popular is because it brings the latest version of Android even to devices that are no longer supported by the manufacturers.
