The Android 4.0.4 update offers a number of enhancements including updated browser utility:  faster rendering, zoom and pan and also the ability to dismiss those annoying notifications with the simple swipe of the fingers.  Additionally, users can also look forward to enjoying the app launchers, which will allow them to quickly uninstall any undesired app, as well as being able to gather more information on apps immediately.
