Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

Navigate the Web in Style with Holoweb Browser
More often than not, we come across a few apps of similar in nature to those that already exist. Some offer a few more features, maybe a different skin, or even a feature so unique that you simply cannot turn the app down. Within this category, there is one that one simply does not have too many good options to choose from. We are of course talking about browsers, which are cornerstone apps that essentially mark a complete turn in what a mobile device can do. Having said all this, Android is not exactly browser-deprived since you have the likes of the default (pre-4.1) Browser, Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin, Maxthon, and a few more that will make your browsing experience a more meaningful one.
Thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member HoloApps, you now have one more choice among these gateways to the Internet. Holoweb Browser is a feature packed app that allows you to do most of your favorite activities, in a light ~300 KB app. The browser can store your favorite/recent tabs in a sandbox-type GUI for one-click navigation, it can use flash for embedded videos on sites like YouTube, it gives you the option to switch user agents, and much more.
Please take this browser for a test drive and leave your feedback regarding bugs and suggestions in the thread. All feedback is highly appreciated.
