[prMac.com] Bristol, United Kingdom - Announcing that Hobbyist Software, the developers of iBrowse, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The iBrowse app is a beautiful browser, with visual flowing of tabs, bookmarks and history, private browsing and a new power search that takes users directly to a specific, commonly searched site. Users can also choose to open links in background tabs so they can click on a number of search results and let them open effortlessly in the background as part of the gorgeous flowing line up of tabs.
This latest iBrowse update amps up the power and functionality of the browsing application and also makes it available to iPad users. Users are treated to a full screen display with opened tabs stored behind the browser window, where they wait until the user switches to flow mode. Then, they float past in an orderly fashion, so the desired page can be clicked on and enlarged. Bookmarked and history pages are also offered up as beautiful, flowing visuals. iBrowse also gives users the ability to protect their private browsing by supplying private tabs that do not retain any search or page information after the user leaves the app.
The newest feature that developers have added to iBrowse, is the Power Search. It's a shortcut, taking users directly to a specific, commonly searched site. For example, if a user wants to find a video on YouTube, they merely type a 'u' in front of the video name and iBrowse will go directly to that video's search results on YouTube. It cuts out the middle man, so to speak, because no general search results page is necessary.
These are some of the robust features available in iBrowse:
* Open pages in the background for easy retrieval
* Visual flow for tabs, bookmarks and history
* Full screen browsing
* Private browsing
* Turbo browsing option, which strips images and formatting but loads pages up to 10 times faster
* Turn image loading on or off
* Unlimited tabs
* Smooth, easy interface
* Quick and easy power searches
Hobbyist Software developers have not only made iBrowse incredibly powerful, they've also given this feature rich app an attractive interface. It's easy on the eyes, as well as the browsing. Learn more about this dynamic application by visiting the Hobbyist Software. Purchase and download information can be found on the iBrowse page on iTunes.
