Get into the World of Osine Ikhianosime, the co-creator of Crocodile Browser application.
At 13 most of us were probably stalking our crush on social media or checking out the latest video games online. But for the Ikhianosime brothers from Edo state, Nigeria, the reverse was the case as they spent their formative years sharpening their tech and software developing skills with full support from their parents.
The result of their inquisitive mind is the creation of one of the fastest internet browsers in the world called, Crocodile Browser, which is set to rival the heavyweights, Google Chrome and Mozilla.
We met with Osine Ikhianosime, who’s the youngest of the two brothers in the city of Lagos, where he opened up on the motivation behind their creation, the crocodile browser.
Osine Ikhianosime took us through his work station and plans for the future, which can be termed as daring, inspiring and innovative.
Osine and Anesi Ikhianosime basically taught themselves all they know from the scratch at the age of 8 and 10 respectively and launched the crocodile browser with support from their parents and Uncle.
Today, their crocodile browser has gotten more than 70,000 downloads and put them on Reuters, BBC, and other big media brand on the continent of Africa.
Their exploits also caught the attention of the founder of Econet, Stive Masiyiwa,who has since provided support for the Ikhianosime brothers and their crocodile browser brand.
Africa’s Future Tech Giants
They’ve also launched their own company named, Bludoors, and are looking to create tech apps that will help in mitigating the problems people encounter in Africa.
There is much to these brothers and in our Wura exclusive interview with Osine, you will be amazed at the plans they’ve got in store for the continent of Africa and the world at large because they are just getting started.
