Exactly, Google already knows too much about me, giving the full access to everything I do online is something I'd rather avoid.

Safari. I haven't tried Chrome yet on my iPhone 5. Maybe I'll give it a shot to see if it rivals Safari.

Mainly Safari, but even though safari now has iCloud tabs, Chrome is a big plus because I can open more than 8 tabs.

Safari. Even without jailbreaking and installing my fav tweaks (e.g., WebOffline), it delivers the best performance.

BTW, as soon as a jailbreak is readied, Tab+ becomes an excellent solution to this problem.

Do you really ever need that? I definitely do not, and when I look at how my parents (and grandparents for that matter) use it, they would have a million tabs open. Which just can't be good for overall speed.

Sometimes Safari, sometimes Atomic - although in general I try to avoid using my phone for web browsing.

atomic for web use, and chrome for backgrounding youtube or other internet media while i browse on atomic

does anyone know of a browser that allows you to minimize the quicktime video popup and continue playing it while browsing on the same browser?

Yes, especially viewing MacRumor threads.... But, I've never had a hit in speed. Chrome manages the tabs well.

Safari. I really haven't used Firefox or Chrome on my iPhone yet since Safari works just fine for me.

I use Chrome as I use it on my Desktop, so the sync features are awesome, especially for bookmarks.

+1 for Atomic Browser, mainly per its AdBlock feature with the ability to add filters. Just refuse to deal with all the web page ads, pop unders etc - especially on a mobile device. Otherwise, Id likely stay between Safari and Chrome.
