Yandex Launches Its Own Browser Predictably Called Yandex.Browser, Caters To Large Screens With Bottom URL-Nav Bar

You probably recognize the name Yandex by now. It's the Russian outfit that's been deploying alternatives to Google services in recent years, and has actually been doing a reasonably good job at it. After recently making the home screen replacement Yandex.Shell available to everyone, the company has set its sights on mobile browsers with Yandex.Browser.

This browser has all the basic features you'd expect in any modern app, but it does a few interesting things. There is a customizable visual shortcut manager called Tablo that lists your most visited sites. Also on-board in the first release is data compression to reduce bandwidth consumption.

Yandex.Shell Launcher And Dialer, From The Makers Of SPB Shell, Expands Worldwide

Yandex isn't a household name in most areas, but if you live in Russia, chances are pretty good that you've at least heard of the Google and Amazon competitor. A few months ago we brought you news of an updated version of Yandex's customized launcher and dialer combination, Yandex.Shell, at the time only available in Russia. Today it's free to download for everyone with a spiffy new English localization. New features for the update include the standard bugfixes and an experimental hardware acceleration mode.

Big titles like Angry Birds, ES File Explorer, SoundHound, Twitter and Opera Mobile are all sitting on the front page. Beneath that is a cache of apps 50,000 strong and growing.

[Hands-On] Floating Music Widget Makes The Standard Lock Screen Music Widget Usable Everywhere

Floating Music Widget, despite the name, isn't really a widget. It's an app that launches a floating window granting quick access to your currently playing song. The app takes the music widget that usually resides on your lock screen and lets you use it anywhere. It isn't rich with features, but it's a convenient way of bouncing back and forward between tracks. Yet despite doing exactly what it promises, it probably won't replace other means of managing music for most people.
