Coast by Opera – iPad gets the browser it deserves

When faced with something that's not a computer, nor a mobile phone, what must a web browser company do to innovate?

 

It forgets everything, and starts over.

 

The web has evolved exponentially from drab, grey webpages with blue, linked text to vivid, elegant pages with complex graphics, videos and other interactive information. Yet, so far, the web experience on tablets has been limited to browsers that are either scaled-up versions of mobile browsers or scaled-down desktop browsers. Opera wanted to do something about that. 

 

Enter Coast by Opera, the browser that is so elegant, intuitive and refined that it should have come with the iPad. 

 

This web-browsing app is the result of its designers tossing out 20 years of preconceptions about what a browser should be, locking themselves in a room and not coming out until they had answered the question, “What should a tablet browser be?”

 

We've cracked the code and have now launched a truly outstanding web experience on tablets. This is not a mere mobile browser tweak, nor a scaled-down PC browser. It is something new.Coast by Opera – iPad gets the browser it deserves
