Apple has improved Safari in iOS 6. The browser includes an iCloud tab, so you can save sites to the cloud and access them easily on other devices connected to iCloud. (This is also available in the Safari browser that comes with the new desktop OS, Mountain Lion.) Safari will also cache pages for offline reading. And it supports full screen landscape mode. In addition, Safari includes smart app banners--the ability to let visitors to your website know that there's an iOS app available, and take them directly to an app. This is obviously handy for developers trying to get more people to download apps, but it's also handy for users, too. Finally, you can post videos or photos to a website without leaving the browser.

Can you please stop using the world "Blitz". It is short for "Blitzkrieg", the propaganda name for multiple heinous attacks by Nazi Germany on its neighboring countries. The English language is so rich in words that you do not have to fall back on Nazi jargon to make a point. How uneducated are the folks allowed to be who write, edit, and publish such articles?

Do you know what isn't an Innovation? A really annoying slide show on a website in 2012. Come on Info Week. Stop this childish design so maybe somebody will want to read the content!

This title is a little misleading.

The only innovation I found in this article was the Passbook feature.
