    Super Web Browser allows you to open multiple windows on the same screen. The screen layout can be changed quickly via quick tab bar buttons. For example, you can watch HTML5 web video ( YouTube, CBS, etc), and use the gmail web app at the same time. Talk on twitter at the same time your browsing another website on the same screen. Support landscape and portrait mode.

    Windows are cached in memory so when you switch web sites you don't have to wait for loading. A pop over menu allows you to quickly select bookmarks or already loaded web sites.

    Only $1.99 in AppStore ( Link to Itunes )

    Future features planned in next release include: Video out, Dropbox and Evernote integration. Let us know if these features are important to you.

    Does "multiple" mean two, like in several other apps I've bought before? What makes this one different from Split Screen, Desktop, etc.?

    This looks very nice. I'll have to give this a try when I get off work soon.

    You can have two windows appear on the screen at once. However, you can have multiple windows stacked on-top of each other. Thus if you have a video or audio streaming page, it'll be active and stacked on top another window. You can quickly switch between the windows, as they are kept in memory and are active, thus video/audio will keep playing in the background.

    Originally we had multiple windows that could be re-sized and overlapped on the screen, however, apple rejected this and said that the most number of windows we can have on screen was two.

    In future, we plan on implementing video out feature so you can have 2 windows displayed on the video out and 2 on the actual iPad screen.

    I like it, it's fast. Is there any way you could add a simple note-taking feature?

    For the next release, we are planning on adding integration with Evernote and Dropbox. Users will have the ability to create/edit Evernote notes, and save bookmarks to Dropbox.

    The "+" button on each window will allow you to add bookmark. Its a 1-click operation, no extra steps. You can access book marks by using the Top/Bottom/Right/Left Window buttons. Currently, bookmarks are a single list for easy access. You can delete booksmarks on th Top/Bottom Window buttons by swiping on the entry.

    Looks nice, I was holding out on buying a browser. I have a question. Is there anyway to sync bookmarks with desktop browsers like firefox?

    Are all the third party browsers competing to have the worst UI?

    I've been using this for a while today. My main problem is that it looks cluttered. I know we don't have much space on the iPad but I wonder if the window tabs could be small thumbnails, and more colors used. It's a bit too white and gray. Using half a screen is already claustrophobic, so maybe we could select a personal color scheme.

    I think the app itself is based on a very good idea.

    I would like to see an actual notepad within the app, as opposed to Evernote alone (which I don't use). Somewhere I can work on a text or paste text from different webpages, and then mail to myself.

    I think this is a good start, and no offense, but please redo the nav buttons, they don't look so hot. :eek:

    Just a suggestion of course, the concept is great, the UI just needs a little refining (buttons, maybe a way to make it less cluttered, as others have said).

    Good job though, so please don't take any of this the wrong way, just offering you some feedback. "Function" seems to be there, "form" has a little way to go. Remember, for Apple, form = function, as the iPad demonstrates. :)

    That's definitely a good idea. We are planning on syncing bookmarks with Evernote, Dropbox, and delicious in future release. I would estimate around late July/Aug you'll see these features.

    Thank you for the suggestions. We'll try to work these into next release. Also, note that if your feeling that a window is not big enough, you can hit the maximize button on the right hand size of each window to take the entire screen of the iPad.

    Evernote or dropbox won't be mandatory for notes,bookmarks. You'll be able to email instead of cloud syncing. Also, thinking about ability to save and access website image snapshots in the app.
