Opera says that "every design element in Coast has been carefully crafted for iPad. It’s not just a mobile interface scaled up to fit a touchscreen."

The browser is primarily gesture-based. There is no title bar, and the address and search fields are normally hidden from view. They can be see them with a simple downward swipe.

DisplayLink for iPad: Turning your tablet into a second monitor

The app requires users to download the free iPad app and DisplayLink’s desktop software, after which they can push web pages and various software programmes to the iPad.
