2. Google Chrome
Platform(s): Android, iOS
We had high, high hopes for the mobile version of the popular desktop browser. Thankfully, Google came through with an app that's so good, we wish we could make it the default browser on our iPhones. Lightweight, quick, and beautiful, Chrome resembles and operates how a mobile browser should in 2012. The tab functionality is spot on (we love the act of simply whisking away tabs we're no longer using). We enjoy the unobtrusive status bar that let's us know if a page has stalled out. And the universal search/address bar makes everything that much easier. Safari works fine, this is true, but if you want better than OK, give Chrome a try.
