Yahoo! Axis Browser for iPad

I am not a big Safari fan. I don’t have it loaded on my computers, and if it is, I don’t use it. Except for my Yahoo said it was getting into the game, I was intrigued. Here is a company that is trying to move forward. So why not check out the browser.

Yahoo! Axis on iPad

I loaded the Axis browser from the iTunes store. It definitely had some features that I was interested in. The search page bar on top was very impressive. The best part was it didn’t navigate from the page I was already on. So I could use the top bar to do research, then go back to the page I was reading.

Yahoo! Axis also features a log-in option that could save my pages, bookmarks and browser history. With the browser plug-in for Chrome on my desktop, I could log in and sync my pages. Perfect for someone like me who moves from one machine to another. I can call up my show notes, then log in to another computer and pull them up.

How to Put Axis in the iPad Dock Bar

I also go through how you can take Safari out of the Dock, and replace it with a browser like Axis. I decided to really give this browser a try for a few weeks. If I didn’t like – I switch back to Safari.

Yahoo! Axis is free, and can be found at axis.yahoo.com

Also, it’s Memorial Day weekend in the US. Everyone have a safe and fun holiday weekend. I will be taking a few days off to recoup from personal health issues, but will be back on Tuesday!
