What browser are you using

On your iPhone 5?

I feel like chrome is the sweetest but Safari is lag-free.

Sometimes chrome take a lot of unnecessary time to load some posts and time in between scrolling ..

What's your thoughts?

Mod , sorry if its placed wrong.

Depending on the site, I flip between Safari and Chrome.

Alright I guess but the option to have the overview of all your tabs in chrome is a diamond.

chrome, but sometimes when you log on to say macrumors.com the images displayed on the screen are either missing or half loaded and/or glitched

Never seen that before . Just tried it out and it's pretty neat!


One bottleneck is that it can't take bookmarks

yeah that's what he said... He went back to Safari after it came, aka when he got iOS6, he went back to Safari.



Also the main reason I use it now, Safari for mac is great and I love the iCloud tabs. Use it almost daily

Safari. I don't trust Google not to store my browsing history on their servers and match it to ads "targeted at the user".

Safari. I like the read later tab to read offline if I need to (airplanes and such).

Yeah, it doesn't do a lot. It uses the full screen on sites though which keeps drwing me back to it. Why Apple can't do this I have no idea.

Yeah, thats why I keep flicking back to Safari as I have that synced with iCloud.

Until Apple allows other apps to send stuff to another browser as the default, it's gotta be Safari for me.

I use Chrome because I use Chrome on the desktop. I'll only use Mobile Safari for testing sites or if an application takes me there, but even then I have a JavaScript bookmark that opens the same URL in Chrome.

Been using Safari for as long as I've been using Macs as my primary computing platform (2007).

Occasionally I use Chrome and Firefox to test out certain websites when I have to though. An rarely, I'll fire up my windows VM to check sites in IE.

Safari. Links open in it so that's what I use. It's generally more fluid too. I use Chrome on everything else.
