Lately web-browsing apps have surged in the AppStore. While browsers such as Opera, and Mozilla will never see the light of day, there are good alternatives on the AppStore that offer some similar features. iDroid Mini Browser is one.
More after the gap:
iDroid Mini Browser features a sleek and simple UI, as well as key aspects that sets itself apart from the competition. It is the first web-browsing app that I’ve come across to offer preview windows of the web-page by holding down its tab. Also, similar to Safari on the Mac, iDroid Mini Browser lets you store up to 9 visual bookmarks on the homepage. Another great feature is the ability to search for specific words on a web-page.
While not as feature-filled as some web browsing apps such as PERFECT Browser 3, iDroid Mini Browser is definitely one of the coolest of the lot – and best of all, it’s free for a limited time!

The one feature which is worth highlighting is the tab browsing. The iPhone has a small screen, therefore using the conventional tabs found in most desktop browser is very inconvenient to use. While Apple has created a new way to have “tabs”, there are not really tabs. And the tabs also doesn’t load simultaneously.
iDroid Mini Browser solution to tabs browsing on iPhone is to have tabs shown below. There are 4 tabs ( due to processing limitation on the old iPhones) available for the user to switch. Each tab has a LED light which show the loading progress of that particular tab. When there is no light it means that tab is not loading, blinking LED light means that tab is loading a web page , and finally green light means that tab has finished loading a web page.
