Opera Coast is an alternative Web browser for your iOS device that features an innovative interface as well as some handy add-ons. With this app, you can access all of your favorite sites quickly by creating tiles for them, as well as browse the Internet the same way you always have.
Cool interface: When you first open this app, you'll see a few pages of tiles representing popular Web sites like YouTube, ESPN, Wikipedia, The Weather Channel, and more. You can add your own favorites to these, as well, so you can access them with one tap on future visits. And you can search the Web conventionally whenever you need by just tapping the screen.
Safety ratings: As you're viewing any Web page through this browser, you can tap a three-box icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the interface, which will zoom out on the page you're viewing, so you can flip back and forth through the various pages you have visited recently. Also in this view, you'll see an "i" icon at the bottom of each page which, when you tap it, brings up a Safety Rating for that page, so you can be secure in your browsing.
Navigation issues: The innovative design of this app does have some drawbacks, at least initially, because you'll have to do some poking around to figure out where various features are located. The app doesn't really come with much in the way of help or guidance in this area, either, but once you get the hang of it, it'll become second nature.
If you're looking for an alternative iOS browser, Opera Coast is a good option. It works well, it's free, and it provides an interesting user experience that you won't find anywhere else.
"Download the revolutionary web browser built for your iPhone and iPad. Discover a new, free way to waste away some idle moments. Get fresh, fast content from the web with this easy-to-use browser from Opera."

Our app won't change your life forever. It won't buy you a new car or make sure your best friend doesn't fall for your girl. But, that's not all that life is about.

Opera Coast looks great, it feels great and it delivers the content you want.
Listen, we don't care what you do with your time. Spend it any way you want. Hell, go ahead and waste it. We advocate taking breaks and we will defend precious downtime at all costs. We just want to make sure that when you waste time you waste it well.
