  • Pinch-to-zoom (Android 2.0+)
  • Ability to toggle full-screen/mobile versions of webpages
  • Beautiful multiple window UI (up to 8 open at a time)
  • Easy social sharing from the SkyBar menu
  • Explore similar content using the Explore button on the SkyBar menu
  • Clear history when closing the app to protect anonymous browsing

Drawbacks over other browsers:
