App Store Description

Journey Lite is still the web browser you have been waiting for, but it's free (ad-supported)! Has all the features of the full Journey!

TABBED BROWSING: easily open and close tabs, plus support for links that automatically open in a new tab
-Create and close tabs with the touch of a button
-Want to open a link without leaving the current site? With Journey, it's easy, just hold down on the link you want to open - it will give you the option of opening the link in a new tab
-GESTURE SUPPORT: Switch between tabs easily by swiping two fingers to the left or right, or by hitting physical buttons

FULL-SCREEN BROWSING: just tap the screen with 2 fingers together (or turn on "shake to full-screen" in settings) to switch between full screen mode and normal mode! 25% more screen space in portrait mode and 40% more screen space in landscape
-With gesture support you can even switch between different tabs while in full-screen mode (swipe 2 fingers to the left or right)

FAST WEB BROWSING: enable fast browsing by opening settings (touch 3 fingers to the screen at the same time), and then turn Fast Browsing "On". With Fast Browsing enabled, Journey will automatically use Google Mobilizer to get web pages FAST.
-Fast Browsing web page sizes can be around 10 times smaller! That means THEY'LL LOAD 10 TIMES FASTER! This is especially useful when you are on the go and don't have access to WiFi.

OFFLINE BROWSING: Journey remembers where you were and will restore all of your windows when you reopen it (unless private browsing is on of course)
-Works even without an internet connection

IPAD SUPPORT: All the features available in the iPhone version are included, but at the stunning resolution of the iPad
-Additionally, on the iPad you can VIEW 2 TABS AT THE SAME TIME! Enable a desktop-like browsing experience and use 2 websites simultaneously

-Customize the bookmark's URL, it can be a javascript URL, a mailto URL or whatever you want

SETTINGS:
-Touch the screen with 3 fingers to access settings
-PRIVATE BROWSING - keep your browsing history secret by turning on private browsing
-LOCK ORIENTATION - keep Journey's orientation locked so you don't have to worry about accidentally tilting it
-USER-AGENT FAKING - access restricted websites by pretending to be Firefox, Desktop Safari, Internet Explorer, or even Opera. On the iPad you can pretend to be the iPhone. Or just supply your own custom User-Agent!
-Change your home URL, the default URL for new tabs

FIND IN PAGE! Just hit the "+" button, select "Find in page", and you can search the current page for a given piece of text.

SAVE PICTURES: touch and hold down on a picture to save it.
