China’s search giant Baidu, launches a browser for android mobiles

The Chinese search giant Baidu, the leader in China’s search market (holding around 80 percent of the domestic search market), has stepped into mobile running Android (Google’s mobile OS) with a new browser (Baidu Explorer).

The browser features  HTML5 and Javascript engine that the company says is fast enough to compete on the international stage against rival offerings from Google and Opera (Baidu browser scored 482 out of 500 on the HTML5 test, compared to 371 on mobile Chrome, 349 for Firefox and 367 from Opera).

Most important features of Baidu Explorer are multi-task rendering, intelligent Chinese-language voice search and access to location-based services.

Baidu has integrated its browser with its search service, the application features a Baidu search bar and shake-to-display search trends and hot topics.
