App DescriptionThe free version of the ultimate full screen web browser for iPhone. We have created a browser with several fantastic new innovations to make your mobile browsing experience a true pleasure.

True Full Screen:
During browsing only the discreet Portal button is displayed on screen. A flick of the wrist hides / shows the Portal button for true full screen mode. The Portal button gives you instant access to all our browsing features.
Our new research mode slashes the time you spend searching for details by highlighting the information you need as you browse.
Pinpoint Find In Page:
Portal’s find in page functionality will highlight all instances of your search phrase and will scroll to next and previous instances on your command, it will even highlight the location on screen with an animated crosshair to save you time. Please note that Find In Page is only available in the full version of Portal and not in Portal Lite.
Profiles help you organize your browsing and settings. All settings, bookmarks, research and history in Portal are stored per profile. You can create profiles for whatever you want, perhaps one for work and one for play, or perhaps use one to store your private bookmarks. Stealth profiles are never displayed so you can keep things completely secret.
You can choose the file types that are downloaded when they are encountered. By default ZIP, RAR, DMG, Torrent, ISO and EXE files are downloaded to your documents folder so you can later retrieve them using iTunes. You can add whatever MIME types you like and can quickly toggle file downloading on / off.
Providing you are set up for printing with iOS 4.2 you will be able to print web pages using the AirPrint functionality.
You can quickly email links from pages, links to the current page, images and entire research topics from Portal. If you frequently email the same address you can setup a default email address to avoid having to choose / type it each time.
Allows you to use bookmarklets to quickly send pages to Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper, Read It Later and many more systems for which bookmarklets are available.
Screenshots show the full version of Portal to avoid potential issues due to advertising in screenshots.
