I am sure most of us never expected to need a joystick to browse the web, but Kinabalu Innovationâ€™s SurfCube 3D browser shows it may actually come in quite handy. The developer’s of SurfCube are open to feedback and suggestions and they noted us that many of the features added are from user’s feedback.
The video shows of version 2.0 of his software, which is still to hit Marketplace, and which brings many features demanded by users, including tab support. Here is the change log from v1.3:
– Added Tab browsing:
– History is now on top side, Tabs are on left
– Unlimited tabs, but we do optimize for memory usage
– long press on links opens them in background or new foreground tab
– Open favorites in new tabs with a new button next to them
– Open tabs are remembered between sessions (except in Private Mode)
– Added joystick navigation based on user feedback, especially for HTC devices with capacitive buttons.
– Drag the joystick to rotate the cube
– Tap the joystick to go back to browser side
– Flick the joystick for really fast navigation on the cube
– Long press the joystick to change size and position
– turn the joystick on or off in settings
– Reset joystick settings with one button
– Brand new cube rotation logic: smoother and should get rid of the occasional glitches
– Reworked tutorial to show off new features
– Page title is now detected even before the page loads
– Small Usability tweaks all over
– Brand new tips section
SurfCube costs $1.99. The current version of SurfCube can be found here, with version 2 expected in the next few weeks.
