It just runs vanilla Android. I mainly get phone apps though I can sideload anything. I do have a USB air mouse with keyboard and I use it sometimes, but it does pretty much the same as the remote, which also has a mouse function. The box is actually called S6 Pro. It is no longer on AliExpress but this one looks fairly similar.

Okay, I went through all the Edge settings. I didn't see anything that might affect the login but I tried again anyway and this time it just worked. Not sure why. I will see how this goes for awhile.

Thanks I have tried Dolphin in the past but it didn't work out. In the meantime, I have gone back to Firefox. It is pretty configurable and seems to work best for what I want. I think I will stick with that.

I've been using Dolphin for a long time (years)and as I can use Lastpass and organise my main bookmarks on the startup page I don't seem to be able to move away from it. Tried a number of other browsers and so far ended up using Dophin again. The only thing I'm not sure is what/how much is being sent home.
If someone can suggest another Browser with the same features I would give a try.

If you like Firefox then give Firefox Preview a try. That's the rewrite that's coming sometime this year.

Brave is the best android browser.

 

It is based on Chrome and looks and feels like Chrome, but is not from Google. It has excellent privacy and ad-blocking.
