UZard: Full-Featured Browser with Flash Support
XDA forum member hkp2p has posted about UZard, ‘the fastest mobile web browser’ according to the UZard web page.
UZard is a new full-featured free browser which appears to be similar to Opera 10 and is currently in beta. It plays Flash 10 videos in full screen and tabbed browsing appears to be ‘superfast’ – or close to Opera 10. The browser also detects videos and plays them in it’s own player.
XDA members have been trying out the browser and comments include that Uzard appears to be skinnable, although there are a lot of files to change. Moreover, currently it does not save passwords and rotation is manual. Latest feedback include comments that UZard does not support multi-touch. Having said all this, why not try it out for yourself?
