Opera’s Coast mobile web browser is an iOS browser meant to provide a smooth, leisurely UX. For fun I’ve included one of their promo videos named “Cats by Opera”, which is a play on words (cats, Coast) and pays homage to the light, laid-back vibe the creators would like you to feel. Opera Coast been available as a free app via the Apple App Store since late April. It’s for the iPhone and iPad. If you have sites that work particularly well with the iPad, you can sync them to your iPhone by using the automatic iCloud sync of site tiles in Opera Coast. Related search words and quality website suggestions appear as you type in your query. As you enter a URL, website suggestions pop up.
“Like everyone who owns an iPhone, I’ve often picked it up when waiting for something or someone. I was never quite happy with how apps and browsers kind of got in the way of the content. With Opera Coast, we made content the main star of the show, letting the browser app itself get out of the way when you just want to kill some time. It’s the way the web was meant to be enjoyed.”
