Which browser is good for iPad. Currently I am using safari. But I think is there any other web browser which is better than this. Actually I don't like it. I am a windows user and I have a android phone. In both of them I use google chrome. And it is not possible to use it on my iPad. So can any one suggest me any other web browse rather than safari. Thanks in advance. :D

Why can't you use it on your iPad? It's in the iTunes store and is free.

Chrome is what I use. I love how I can view my desktop bookmarks from my iPhone and iPad.

Thank you very much. I am a new iPad user as I mentioned before (and also the dumb one :p). Thank you for help me out :D

I use Safari, because I'm lazy. :o I am always using the iCloud tabs feature to open pages from my MacBook Pro.

I love chrome's swipe to next / previous tab and readily accessible incognito option on my iphone, but am opting for safari now because of reader, full-screen portrait on iPhone, and that it just feels speedier and more stable on my ios devices.

Also, safari seems to support multitouch gestures on Mac better. Thanks to cloud tabs and synching, I find a small advantage in running safari on all my Mac devices over chrome.

Not an easy decision though, and I found myself frequently switching between the two before I finally made a decision.

Yes I tried Mercury Browser. And Perfect Browser and Icab. All have advantages and disadvantages.

Safari on my iDevices and my Macs. (Love the iCloud tab feature).

Firefox on my window machines.

I felt no need to switch to something different on my iDevices when (Not jailbroken) everything defaults to Safari anyway and it does the job for me as a Web browser.

Safari; all I need and sync nice between my devices.

[QUOTE=Abazigal;16559682]I love chrome's swipe to next / previous tab

You can swipe within safari going from one page to another; at least on OSX. That's pretty cool too.:D

I have my fair share of complaints about Safari on mac (no way to set default zoom is my biggest one).

Like I said, there are things that Safari does better and worse than Chrome on both OSX and IOS. I often finding myself wishing I had access to a feature on the Safari when using Chrome (and vice versa).

Here's hoping for yet more safari improvements later this year.

I like the chrome on my iPhone 5 but for my iPad, I just use Safari cause chrome has that black space on top which is really distracting for me

Safari here. I just can't get over all of my bookmarks syncing across all of my devices without the need for a 3rd party browser. I also user Reader and Reading List regularly so Safari isn't going anywhere for me.

how much of a difference is safari's rendering to chrome and other alternatives for other users?

Skip to 3:23.

Couldnt find a real world comparison

----------

Definitely Chrome.

Why?

It's objectively slower and the tab implementation is clumsier (the second one is my opinion though).

Now that Safari allows more than 9 tabs, the only benifit to Chrome would be if you need a certain feature (e.g. tab syncing, incognito mode etc), or if you prefer the less elegant tab management system.

Mercury for me. Its probably the faster brower next to Safari.

95% Safari, 5% Skyfire, when I need to change default browser.

I bounce back and forth between safari and chrome. I truly appreciate the iCloud syncing with safari but I find chrome to be a tad faster at times.

Not sure in all honesty........I don't ever see a pop-up notification notifying me that an ad has been blocked.
