Quad Screen Browser is four times the fun for iPad web surfing

SellYourMac.com is known for offering a great price when you sell them your used Apple gear, which is timely given yesterday's announcements, but you may not know they also have a wide variety of iOS apps.

Their latest offering is called Quad Screen Browser and it makes iPad web surfing evermore enjoyable. My MacBook Pro has been relegated to desktop use, and I love surfing the web from my couch, on the iPad. But that means giving up the ability to view multiple web pages and sites simultaneously. Sometimes I might want to check eBay and Craigslist at the same time, or copy and paste between web pages.

Quad Screen Browser lets you split the iPad's screen into one, two, three or four different browsers, in portrait or landscape. It's a neat idea, and should have been part of iOS to begin with, so it's nice to see the Apple fans (fanatics?) at SelllYourMac.com stepping up to the plate to address a need.
