Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) is entering the browser space with a bang. Its new Axis browser is available as a standalone app for iPhone and iPad as well as a plug-in for Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Internet Explorer, Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chrome, and Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) Safari.
Don’t Miss: What is Google+ Hiding?
Yahoo says its new browser will allow users to see a visual preview of webpages and search results before clicking on them, instead of the normal links returned by current browsers.
The desktop version of Axis exists as a plug-in for a user’s current browser and sits in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Users can access it by simply typing in its search field, which will then expand the browser and all of its features.
The mobile version for iOS offers the same preview experience as the desktop version and also connects with Axis on your desktop, offering seamless browsing between wireless devices and desktops.
No word yet on when Axis will be available for Android or Windows devices.
