HTC has been slimming its app load down to extreme barebones levels ever since it put out the One A9. The company replaced several basic amenities from its pre-load with Google’s own comparable offerings. For example, the rather inadequate Google Photos app takes over from HTC’s Gallery app — immediately reviewing photos after you’ve taken them is kinda painfully slow on the former.

The Pixel-maker has made its basic apps available on the Google Play Store for the longest time, but it will stop offering one of them on November 30 — the Internet browser.

The browser is a twist off the AOSP browser, but its latest improvement is meant to get you off of it. You can now export your bookmarks to other internet apps. Once November 30 passes by, you won’t be able to get HTC Internet from the Play Store and no more updates — especially those security updates — will be provided.
