But most of this phones doesn’t com with root access. So what I’m gonna show is two methods to get Sinhala Tamil Unicode supported web browser.

 

Method 1

SETT Sinhala Tamil web Browser

This is SETT Sinhala Tamil web Browser.

This browser  uses it own algorithm (text rendering engine)  to place Unicode font characters in the text on web pages loaded by the browser.

Method 2

Actually it supports any Unicode font. All you have to do is enable it from the configurations page.
