Previously I’ve mentioned a few components that enhance UIWebView with additional features for easier browsing such as DZWebBrowser .

Here’s an open source component that takes things a little bit further in turning UIWebView into a complete browser called Banshee from Ghostery.   This is a component designed to provide the user with a full browsing experience rather than just for navigation of a few html pages.

Some of the features of Banshee include:

An address bar
Bookmarks
Tabbed Browsing
Loading Indicators
Navigation buttons (forward, back, reload)
Customizable buttons

Here’s an image showing Banshee in action:

You can find Banshee on Github here.

A great component if you need to drop a browser into an app.
