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.
