Teenage Nigerian brothers builds browser to rival Chrome

The two teenage brothers decided to build their own web browser called ‘Crocodile Browser’ after getting tired of Google Chrome built by tech giant GOOGLE.
brothers1Anesi 13-year-old and 15-year-old Osine Ikhianosime, both students of Greensprings School, Anthony Campus, Lagos, have developed an Android-based web browser called Crocodile Browser with a new release( Crocodile Browser Lite).
These secondary school students taught themselves to code and, with encouragement from their parents and school, they’ve achieved something extraordinary.

As a matter of fact, these teenagers’ creation is actually on the Google Play Store
13 year old Osine, said he writes the code for the browser together with his brother, for their creations and his brother also designs the UI.
Now available on the Google Play Store, Crocodile Browser Lite is a functional, fast browser for low-end feature phones.
At a closer look, these genius brothers are just like every other teenage boy but not quite at the same time. Osine likes to play soccer, but also takes coding as a hobby – which is not something every 13 year old boy does.
His interest in computers began at the tender age of 7, the same age which he and his brother –who was 9 at the time (born June 1, 1999), decided to start company of their own.
Inspired by Microsoft’s “Windows” platform, they initially named their new company ‘Doors’, but later changed the name to ‘BluDoors’ when they found out that the initial name had been taken and they have a functional website at www.bludoors.com.
The two brothers decided to learn to code at ages 12 and 14 respectively. “I learnt to code by myself. I started in 2013, I used sites like Code Academy, Code Avengers and books like ‘Android for Game Development’ and ‘Games for Dummies’,” said Anesi.
The brothers launched their browser on the Mobango app before taking it onto the Google Play Store so they could reach a wider audience. Their browser currently has around 500 downloads, but no ads yet.
