Mercury Browser Pro Introduces Omnibox, New Multitouch Gestures And More
Mercury Browser Pro, which is one of the more feature-rich Safari alternatives out there, has been updated with a number of improvements to version 7.3. Version 7.3 of the desktop-style universal iOS Web browser brings a redesigned interface for File Manager, Bookmarks, and Settings on the iPad. Other than that, the improvements introduced in Mercury Browser Pro apply to both iPhone and iPad editions of the app. One of these improvements is the compression of the address bar and the search bar into a single bar called omnibox, as in Chrome. But if you still prefer to use the address bar and the search bar separately, you can revert to the so-called classic style in the app's settings. Either way, the new version of the app offers autocomplete for URL addresses.

Speaking of "share," Mercury Browser Pro 7.3 also brings improved Evernote sharing, enabling you to send a Web page's content to Evernote. Finally, the new version of Mercury Browser Pro adds an option to enable or disable pop-ups. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, Mercury Browser Pro 7.3 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $0.99 download. Mercury Browser Pro is listed by AppAdvice in both the Best Web Browsers for the iPhone AppGuide and the iPad Web Browsers AppGuide. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
