What browser do you use on your iPod Touch?

Which one would you recommend?

Safari as it's the fastest one for iOS. Alternatively I switch to Mercury browser for ease of use and full-screen mode.

I have been using Mercury browser a lot. I like that I can scroll down quickly something Apple never added to Safari and the ad block works okay. Not as good as on a computer but it is better than nothing.

chrome with occasional safari use; chrome has become my default since it seamlessly syncs between my idevice and pc; something safari can't do with a hybrid device environment

How many gb's do you have? Usually browsers aren't very big.

Atomic Web. It's faster than Safari and it does twice as much.

Always Safari.
Other browsers are slower.

Mercury for it's drop down bookmarks. I can't stand Chrome's bookmarks on mobile devices.

Just Safari. Though I don't use the browser all that much on my iPod. I prefer to use a dedicated app whenever possible, since they're better optimized for the small screen.

Safari for quick searches.

Mercury to get serious job done. Syncing is unmatched. Adblock is OK. A tad slower, but additional features and shortcomings adressed from Mobile Safari make it a no-brainer.

Will never use Chrome from its utter lack of respect of privacy by its parent company.

Safari, mainly because it's default. I had Chrome at one point, but I never put it in my bottom bar, rendering it useless. I don't have any issues with Safari, so I'm fine with it.
