Obviously, the larger screen size of a tablet can allow for more leeway in how an app’s UI is presented, and also better accommodate for two-fingered (or two-thumbed) interactivity. We also tested the Android version of Chrome, since it’s the default browser that comes with the latest version of Android (Jelly Bean). We tested each browser on a Lenovo IdeaPad A1, which has a 7-inch screen and runs Android 4.04 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
