Yahoo Axis Reimagines The Browsing Experience
Visual previews are here, and on iOS, it allows people to swipe to the next result. It's also built to translate across platforms, and yes, plenty of social sharing is baked in. After signing in with Yahoo!, Google or Facebook credentials, Axis centralizes online lives with a customizable Home Page that provides direct access to their favorite sites, saved articles and bookmarks across all devices where Axis has been downloaded. On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Axis serves as a standalone mobile browser app. On the desktop, Axis is a browser plug-in that works with Firefox 7+, Safari v5+, Internet Explorer 9 and all versions of Chrome. Axis is built upon the Yahoo! Cocktails mobile development platform, and it's available starting today. It's kind of jarring to see at first, but give it some time and see if it's the search you've been... searching for.
