The most awaited Yahoo! Axis finally made its debut and most fans just can’t get over it. Actually, just a few hours after its launching it become #2 on app store list of most downloaded applications. Well, maybe because among other browsers available in app store, it displays a slick look that is easy to use. With its minimalist façade, the browser is nice to look at and above all the whole package has a user interface that it allows more intuitive search experience. Though at first, surprisingly, the app did not allow to open links in new tabs. However, it was now corrected and users can finally open new tabs to have a much easier search experience.
Another good thing in it is that it has a private browsing mode. It locally encrypts the data that it collected. It doesn’t store cookies or save your browsing history which is a great advantage since no one will be able to gain access to your browsing information. They made sure that they still keep up with the modern browser modes.
Axis in your desktop is just part of the equation; the half of it lies in your iPod or iPhone. They have also set a stand-alone browser app for iOS that has the same revision search experience on the mobile space. This is what made this new iOS app exceptionally better. Because of its Web Kit underpinnings, the whole set up runs very smoothly and the bookmarks synchronization between devices is so fast once you are logged in.
With its responsive web design, the set up easily adapts to where you had it landed, desktop, iPhone or iPad. It has large thumbnails for a search result that is very ideal on a small screen. You don’t need to put an extra effort on how to deal with it since your finger touches the link just right.
Currently, the Axis browser app is exclusively for iOS but, if not sooner, it will possibly make its way onto Android someday. Though Google might not let anyone to set foot on their territory it is still early to say and it is better to enjoy the app while it’s still hot.
