Hub Browser updated with a new design, swipe gestures, private browsing and more

Hub Browser is a handy app that lets you open articles from within the Hub allowing you to be a bit more productive and efficient in the way you work on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. It doesn't just work from within the Hub either, it can work via other apps too, wherever you get sent a link, you can open it via Hub Browser so you don't have to leave the app you're in. When you're done reading the article, just swipe back and you're back in the app you were in.
