Considering how Mobile Internet Explore is currently the only browser on Windows Phone7, we sure have a lot of amazing options e.g. Metro Browser (opens in new tab), Browse On and Browser+ (opens in new tab). Now there is another new app called SurfCube which once again, redefines browsing on our device.
In short, it adds a 3D cube to the mix that allows you to rotate around to other screens (settings, bookmarks, etc.) while maintaining a full-screen browsing experience. It's surprisingly very fluid and easy to use even makes sense.
We'll be doing a more thorough look in a bit but for now, you can give it a spin in the Marketplace (opens in new tab) for a trial or purchase for a fair $1.99. Check the video of it in action after the break.

This is seriously cool. I love that flick feature! The less times I have my fingers in the way, the better!
For some reason I can't understand this app is NOT available in Canada. Can you guys ask the developer what's up? This is the first time I've seen this problem.
@watership: at wmpoweruser.com, this app was also featured and lists the actual website of the developers. Also, the developer, Velvart Andras, even joined in to discuss some of the aspects of the app on the thread. I also saw that he joined in on the discussion on the Engadget thread as well. He's very professional and diplomatic, and really seems to appreciate the feedback that the posters provide.
I can't seem to download it in the US Marketplace. Anyone else notice a weird bug that you can see it in the Zune app, but not if you search for it on your phone?
Searching takes 1 or 2 days for the app to show after release. Try WP7Applist.com and use the MS Tag to scan for it. Much easier.
