Naver Whale (Hangul: 네이버 웨일) is a South Korean freeware web browser developed by Naver Corporation, which is also available in English. It became available on Android on April 13, 2018.[4]


Since the browser has been based on Chromium since its inception in 2011, Google Chrome apps are compatible with the browser.[5]

Pages can be translated through its Naver Papago service and can translate from Korean, Japanese, and many other languages.[6]

The Naver Whale browser has its own extensions that can be accessed through the Whale Store.[7]
