    Yahoo!’s new Axis browser is one of the most innovative evolutions in the browser market. It didn’t come from Google/Chrome, Microsoft/IE, Mozilla/Firefox, Apple/Safari or Opera. It came from Yahoo!. Yes, Yahoo!. Who woulda thunk? Axis isn’t a contender for the desktop market but shines in iOS, where the Axis app is WAY better than Safari for iPhones and iPads. It’s bookmarking functionality doesn’t compare to but a valiant effort!
