Yahoo Axis for iOS Review

Yahoo Axis for iOS Review

Boasting a slick interface for searches and easy cross-device syncing, Yahoo Axis is a very good alternative to Apple’s Safari browser.

3.5 stars
(3.5 out of 5)

Yahoo has just taken up arms in the mobile browser race. Axis, its new browser for iOS devices (and a plug-in for desktop browsers), reimagines the surfing experience by eliminating the middleman in search–the text-heavy results page. Instead, it lets you leap smoothly from query to page, query to relevant page via thumbnail-centric interface. Better yet, it lets you sync your bookmarks and history across devices, and share pages with others. Should this browser replace Safari in your dock?
