Browser+ gets bumped to v1.5, adds Favorites support

The popular Browser+ addon for Mobile Internet Explorer (see previous coverage) just got bumped to v1.5 and is now available in the Marketplace, still for $0.99.

Version 1.5 is pretty significant in that it adds Favorites support, a feature that many have been clamoring for since v1.0. Overall, the addition of Favorites works flawlessly, allowing easy access to your bookmarks, adding a new bookmark and seeing browser history.

No other changes are noted but we think the addition of Favorites will go a long way to getting people to use this browser full time now. Oh, and the developer, Sriram Krishnan, lets us know he has some "interesting stuff planned" for future updates.
