Boat Browser Is Chrome/Safari-like Mashup for Android

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 22nd, 2011

Boat Browser is a new mobile browser for Android devices that combines the features of Google Chrome and Apple’s Mobile Safari browser for easy and tabbed navigation.

Among the Chrome-like features are tabbed browsing and a default homepage of a your most visited web sites. The bottom navigation bar is very similar to the navigation bar found in Mobile Safari and gives you quick access to your bookmarks and browser windows. Beneath the superficial resemblance to the two popular browsers, however, there are plenty of fresh features. You can use your phone’s volume rocker to switch between tabs, switch the caching between your phone’s memory and the SD card, switch to night mode for easy-on-the-eyes reading in low light, and more.
