Yandex, a large European internet company operating Russia's most popular search engine, released a full-fledged mobile browser for the iPad and for Android smartphones. Yandex's mobile browser was designed from the ground up to closely integrate the search engine and the web surfing experience.
Consumers can enter search queries or web addresses directly into a unified smart search field that understands common names and descriptions of sites. Yandex understands user intent specific to mobile devices and immediately responds with search results most appropriate to the query -- with maps or news, images, or Wikipedia entries. Since typing on a small screen is often difficult, especially while walking, Yandex.Browser also supports voice search. Another feature, called "Tablo" provides quick access to favorite and frequently visited sites and is designed for easy navigation on touch devices.
