Yahoo! launched a compact browser and search tool called Axis for the iPhone and iPad market.
The company plans to launch Axis for Android and Windows RT in the future, but has no plans on supporting BlackBerry.
Yahoo! intends to release a plugin that will implement the search details with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer on desktop computers.
The company points the ability to jump through the thumbnail images and results of the search as a key feature of the new browser.
However, the mobile browser marketplace is already crowded, with nearly 80% of users having chosen to use the default browsers integrated with Android and iOS devices.
