Browsix is a must-have tweak if you want a better way to browse the web on your iPhone or iPad. I’ve no complain about the current stock browser (Safari) on my iPhone right now, or even third-party applications like Chrome or Muffin. However, what makes Browsix a unique browser is its ability to integrate new features and optimize users browsing experience on their iOS devices.
Browsix provides a highly interactive browser, which you can launch system-wide as a widget, from the lock screen to home screen. In other words, you can browse the web while using another application such as Instagram, WhatsApp, or even stock applications like Notes, simultaneously. Browsix has three main components:
Instant Floating Browser
The reason why you could be able to use the browser while inside another application is with the help of Instant Floating Browser feature. This allows you to instantly open up Browsix and smoothly move it around the screen. Launching this feature is fairly easy, just pick one gesture from the Settings.
When you tap on an external link the first thing that happen is getting redirect to your default browser, in this case, it should be Safari. But since we have Browsix, this tweak will automatically open the link without leaving the current app. This means you can interact completely with your app and browse at the same time.
Open From/To Safari
Did you know that Browsix is Safari-friendly? You can open Browsix directly from Safari by holding on to the bookmarks button and the current tab will be converted over to Browsix’s browser.
There are a lot more features waiting for you to explore in this tweak. You can find and purchase Browsix for $2.99 from the BigBoss repo. It’s compatible with iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8 – 8.4.
Here is a quick video demonstrating how this work.
