Hey Guys, I'm new to modmyi and I'm loving the community.
Anyways, juts wanted to announce that my new web browser nimbus is now available on Cydia.
nimbus is a lightweight, speedy, and efficient browser that is defined by its brute speed when surfing through web content. With available features such as private browsing, full-screen browsing, a quick search tab, clean interface , and of course, it's remarkable speed, I urge you all to check it out. It is free, so give it a try. Any suggestions, comments, etc. will greatly be appreciated!
Update coming next week-
Adds tabbed browsing as well as auto-rotate compatibility.
Thanks again to the community, and thanks for any downloads in advance!
Current downloads are at ~8500 in 48 hours. Remarkable! Thanks a lot again guys!

So first, no history being cached, makes the browser fast in itself. As I mentioned, it's small size really help that out too. Beyond that, some small manipulations being done for temporarily caching urls for back and forward in a different method so that upon back and forward clicks, urls can be accessed much faster instead of reloading an entirely new url request.
Thanks for the interest!

Just downloaded it to try it out. After just a quick test it certainly seems to load pages pretty quickly. Nice job!

Glad you like it! I'm actually planning on releasing an update this week with retina support for the icon as well as tabbed browsing.
Hope you like it!

I like the ability to hide the URL box, good job.
Unless I missed something there isn't tabs yet.

Hey thanks digital! Yeah, I'm actually running into some problems with tabs, but I am relentlessly working on the feature. Sorry about the delay, I'm just attempting to balance school and iPhone development altogether! But yes, I've not given up on tabs, and they will be coming soon! Thanks again for the feedback!
