    Which ones have you guys tried ad what have you heard about them? I hear mixed things about atomic, but there are a few more options available too.

    Offline Pages - it's normally $5, but it's FREE right now. As the name implies, you can save web pages and see them anywhere. Did I mention it's FREE?

    Yeppers! Atomic Browser is awesome! I use it 95% of the time. Some minor quirks which IM sure will be worked out but overall it has many features built in that Safari for the iPad should have but doesn't, at least yet!

    Oh and the price a whopping $.99! How can ya beat that? ;)

    iCab is an extremely nice, full-featured browser. I mostly use Safari, but if I want to search within a page or something, I go straight for iCab.

    Atomic Web Browser FTW.

    Come on Apple, let's approve the update already.

    keep an eye out for the newly designed icon/logo....It is not all red anymore.

    Is there a way to import favorites into Atomic? From anywhere?

    Atomic is great! Posting from it now. The full screen option yields a lot more Viewing real estate.

    There's a way. It looks a little complicated so I didn't go through the process but figure I'll get back to it. I haven't really used thus browser much yet but I'm impressed with it so far.

    I got them imported pretty easily. I miss the bookmark bar from Safari though, not sure if I can add that to Atomic yet. If not that will be a big negative for me, the way it handles my bookmarks right now is way to much of a hassle.

    Check out Cloud Browse. It was on the app store for a while. I don't know if they put it back up yet but it allowed Flash on your iPad.

    Another +1 for Atomic Browser. I've been using it for a while now and it works really well.
