This browser puts a Google chrome like interface in your mobile device, with tabbing, bookmarking, tab browsing, but with a good catch- It's UI is very optimized for the hand held touchscreen. It supports pinch zoom, easy navigation and big enough buttons yet good scaling, gesture commands (you can draw a shape like say an 'f' to quickly go to facebook).
Further it supports many add-ons, themes and widgets. The only downside is that some of these very cool add-ons (like password manager) require money for full features. Limited free versions of addons are still fully functional with limits to numbers (like passwords, or open tabs). Though it can still use functionality of the native android browser which is pretty good by itself.
It would be more of a 4.5 rating if the browser scrolling were a little more smoother and add-ons were completely free. Also the developer is working on optimizing performance and I'm sure with Android 2.2 will will go crazy fast. It performs great on my DroidX running stock Android 2.1
