Coast by Opera Wants to be Your Go-To iPad Browser

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Tech Crunch reports that Opera Software has been hard at work on a made-for-iPad web browser for the past year and a half, and now they're finished. Coast by Opera is specifically an iPad web browser, not a computer browser tossed onto Apple's tablet. What this means is that the app has been optimized for use on iOS.

Specifically, that equates to a re-imagined interface. About the only buttons you'll find are one to go back to the Home page and one to bring up your recent History. Pretty much everything else is gesture-based such as swiping left and right to go back or forward a page, and a home screen similar to the familiar iOS interface that will display large icons for favorite sites as well as recently-visited ones to make bookmarking a lot simpler.

So if you've got an iPad and are looking for an intuitive web browser with a minimal interface, go ahead and give Coast a download.
