Black Media Scoop (BMS) is reporting teen Nigerian brothers Anesi,13 and Osine, 15 Ikhianosime have developed a web browser that challenges Google Chrome.  The BMS staff reports that the boys wanted a browser that loaded faster than Google Chrome, so they built one. The BMS author writes:

“The dynamic coding duo are your ordinary African teenagers. They attend school in Greensprings school, Anthony Campus, Lagos. They love their friends, soccer, to have fun and coding, obviously.

The young problem solvers got tired of waiting for Google Chrome to load on their mobile phones, so decided to do something about it instead of complain. They decided to build a better mobile browser last year and called it Crocodile Browser Lite. It is currently live and ready for your download in the Google Play store right now.”

The duo’s parents emphasized education and say the boys knew how to use computers before they could read.  Anesi and Osine taught themselves how to code by using Google Academy, Code Avenger and books like Android for Games and Games for Dummies.

The boys plan to attend MIT after high school graduation.
