- Built-in integration with Twitter and Facebook.
- Password manager.
- Download/Upload manager.
- The inclusion of widgets, standalone mobile applications that are run directly from the browser, such as a weather app, calendar app, calculator, Twitter client and others. These widgets let people using any phone take part in the mobile apps revolution.

- Patented split screen viewing to make surfing complicated Web pages simple, and viewing content on the smallest of screens easy.
