According to RisingAfrica.org, Anesi and Osine Ikhianosime, 13 and 15 years old respectively, have developed an Android based web browser called Crocodile Browser Lite. The first version of the browser was released last year.
Tired of Google Chrome, the two brothers decided to build the new browser with faster browsing capabilities. The duo began coding in 2013 but had hopes of creating a tech company at the age of 7 and 9.
“I started learning how to code by myself in 2013, I used sites like Code Academy, Code Avenger and books like Games for Dummies and Android for Game Development,” said Anesi speaking to Techcabal.com.
At such a young age, the siblings have created something most adults can’t completely understand. Their company, BluDoors has plans to expand into gaming and app development. They launched their browser on the Mobango app before taking it to the Google Play Store so they could reach a wider audience. The current 3.1 version is available for free download on Android devices. As of today, the browser has nearly 3,000 reviews and has an 4.5 star average.
The young entrepreneurs plan on continuing their educations and going on to develop more apps. The brothers also have hopes of coming to the United States to study computer science at MIT.
