Facebook has been testing a new browsing experience from its mobile app that puts it more in line with an actual web browser.
TheNextWeb points to a screen cap from Henry Wilmer on Twitter, noting that others have mentioned it over the past couple of months.

As you can see, you can enter your own URL right from Facebook, and there are forward/back buttons at the bottom along with a Facebook “people talking” count and bookmark option as well as an additional menu.
It’s almost as though Facebook has been working on its own web browser. Will they eventually launch one as a standalone app? It’s not as if standalone apps are not commonplace for the company.
