Honeycomb Apps gets the job done!

ICS Browser+: Simply, Amazing.


Those of you who are fortunate enough to have Android 4.0.x “Ice Cream Sandwich” on your tablets will know that the stock browser, despite being better than the stock Honeycomb version, leaves much to be desired. Saying that the stock ICS browser is horrible would be incorrect, but just ‘good enough’ won’t do on tablets where users spend a lot of time browsing the web. With their Chrome browser for desktops, Google started a movement to make browsers less and less minimalistic and more about what is actually being viewed. While having the address and tab bars always shown on larger 13”+ displays of laptops and even larger displays on desktops may be practical, on the comparatively miniscule displays of tablets, it distracts from the experience of surfing the web. Luckily for us, Beansoft has stepped in where the Android developers have fallen short and have created a wonderful browser replacement.

User Interface:

There isn’t much to say about ICS Browser +’s UI, and that’s a very good thing. It carefully mimics the stock browser in both design and features, but improves upon it in a multitude of ways. Firstly, it adds a home button to the toolbar that really leaves us questioning why Google ever removed it. Otherwise, most controls and icons remain unchanged from the stock browser. As the saying goes, “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” and the UI of the stock browser is definitely not broken. The app’s icon also mimics the stock browser, but it looks smoother and leaves out most of the additional detail from the stock browser’s icon.
