Browser+ is a new app for Windows Phone 7 which relies on the same basic rendering engine as the mobile version of Internet Explorer, but it offers a couple of different features.

For instance, it supports browser tabs which let you open multiple windows by tapping a Plus icon at the top of the screen and switch between tabs the same way you would with the desktop version of Internet Explorer. You can close any tab by hitting the X icon.

There’s also a private mode which lets you surf the web without saving your browsing history, much like the incognito mode in the desktop version of Internet Explorer.

The browser has an “Open in IE” button in case you want to send a page to the default web browser, and unfortunately there’s no support for landscape browsing at this point.

The folks at WP Central shot a demo video which you can check out after the break.

Browser+ is available for $0.99 from the Windows Phone Marketplace.
