Billed as “a search browser,” Yahoo! is attempting to step up their game with Axis, a new browser extension for the desktop that syncs data with a free iOS app, all in the name of smarter, faster search.
We all love Safari for iOS, but that doesn’t mean we can’t check out the competition from time to time. There are a fair number of options available in the App Store--many for free and most for less than a buck--all promising performance to rival Apple’s bundled browser.
Well despite some sad pandas in the financial prediction racket, Apple is hot hot hot. Sure, their last quarter sales were a wee bit lower than expected, but that was merely the collective intake of breath before the new model iPhone debuted. Naturally you wait until the new handset is out and with the iOS device line driving Apple's profitability, who didn't predict this? Apparently Wall Street. Anyway, Apple's hot whether they like it or not and here's some more weekly hotness.
One of my favorite browsers on Android is now available on the iPhone! Dolphin Browser, a third-party app that includes features like gestures and sidebars, has managed to raise $10 million from Sequoia, a venture capital funding group that is considered one of the Silicon Valley's "most influential venture-capital firms" by the Wall Street Journal. Dolphin Browser is built upon the WebKit browser -- just like Safari -- and offers a streamlined mobile browsing experience for the iPhone. The app includes the aforementioned sidebars, and gestures, plus multiple tab support, easy sharing to Facebook and Twitter, a nifty start page a la Google Chrome and Safari, and Webzine, a dynamic, Flipboard-style way to read your favorite sites.
