Have you ever leant your iPad to a friend or family member and when you get it back you find they’ve logged out of all of your social networks and closed all those tabs you were saving for later?

With Skyfire’s new HotSwap feature on the iPad, you can setup different accounts for each users so that everyone has their own profile while browsing the web — with their own bookmarks, tabs, and settings. It’s perfect for sharing.

If you have one iPad for the whole family, then Skyfire with HotSwap is simply an essential purchase. You can setup an account for yourself, one for mum, and one for each of the kids. When you open up the app, you select your account and you’re instantly presented with your own bookmarks, your own tabs, your own preferences, your own history, and your own account logins for things like Facebook and Twitter.
