The in built browser in facebook app is faster when compared with external browsers like chrome , opera or mozilla firefox. As the external browsers takes time to take over your screen and time to load. It’s one of the major downside when using external browsers. Not only in Facebook, the same problem occurs in twitter mobile app too. One way to solve this problem is to load links in the background on which i’ll write my next post and share the link in here.
