It’s often the hardest to convince yourself to pay for an app that’s very similar to another free app. That’s a big reason why most iOS users just stick with Mobile Safari for browsing from iPhone or iPod Touch; it’s included with their device for free, and just works. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?

For everything that it does well, though, Safari is still pretty lacking. It’s great at rendering standards compliant sites, and even works decently to switch back and forth between several pages. But start trying to multitask between multiple sites and Safari’s shine starts to wear off. Web browsing on iPhone feels so similar to browsing from your computer, it’s easy to start using it more like it’s a computer until you’re frustrated that Safari is reloading sites each time you switch pages and can’t do things you’ve done for years in a normal browser such as viewing the source of a site.

Clearly, a better solution is needed. While all browsers on the App Store have to use the built-in Webkit rendering and Javascript engine, many designers have set out to improve on Safari within these constraints. Today, we’re going to look at 360 Web Browser, a newer alternative browser app that packs tons of features into a mobile browser. With a bold look and more features than we could possibly cover in a review, it’s definitely one interesting browser. Keep reading to learn more about it.
