While most of us seem to have left the windowed browsing era behind with the introduction of tabbed browsing, it looks like it’s coming back – but this time it’s on Android. The folks over at MBFG have come up with a new browser called OverSkreen – a floating browser that lets you browse the internet while running other apps as well, thanks to its windowed design. This means you can open multiple web pages at once and look at them at the same time. If surfing multiple pages isn’t for you – how about surfing the web while you’ve got another app open or you’re still on your homescreen?
While having a windowed browsing feature is not so useful on a smartphone, it makes more sense on a tablet where you have much more display real estate to utilize. Anyway, if you’re interested in giving the app a shot, just head over to the Android Market where you can pick it up for an introductory price of $1.97. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.
