[Update]: Some are confused as to what I mean by “everyone ” should be on 4.0.1+. As I said in the very first sentence, this is pertaining to the Galaxy Nexus. Everyone with a Galaxy Nexus should be on 4.0.1+, and there may even be some other phones with unofficial ICS ROMs that are out there and they are more than likely on 4.0.1+. If you do not have a phone with Ice Cream Sandwich , either officially or unofficially, this does not apply to you.

Many different mods have been and are being made for the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 and the latest seems to be Browser+. Browser+ is based on the ICS browser and adds a couple new useful features with more being added over time.

For starters, we’ve got a User Agent feature that allows you to switch between a number of different UA strings. The original browser already has an option for requesting the desktop version of a given site but being able to specify other devices is a pretty good deal.

We’re also getting an expanded Quick Controls menu where you’ll now get nearly ever button you need to navigate back and forth between web pages. I’m especially fond of the refresh button here. It’s a free download in the Android market and doesn’t require root. You do need to be on Android 4.0.1+, but we’re pretty sure everyone is. [XDA via AndroidForums.com]
