    Since iOS 5 was just released, I would stick with Safari. I'm not sure if third party browsers have been updated for iOS 5. Besides if you're on a mac then you're better off sticking with safari. (iCloud syncs bookmarks between Safari on your iOS devices and OSX)

    I like Perfect Browser. Used to be far better and allowed for easy tabbed browsing and full screen view. I've been using Safari since without noticing any issues.

    I am assuming other browsers can't sync with iCloud as well.

    Try some out and see. One's sense of worth isn't necessarily the same as the next person's. Otherwise everyone would just use the same browser.

    All iPad/iPhone apps are full screen.

    Prior to iOS 5, I swore by Atomic Browser. Now, I use only Safari. It's so much faster, and I don't need to deal with different bookmarks between my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook.

    Not exactly. Safari DEF doesn't have a fullscreen mode. By fullscreen I mean that you don't have navigation bars taking up real estate. See the picture here as an example. Atomic has a fullscreen mode that shows with the browser picture on the right:

    VS Safari below with will ALWAYS have bars on the top and bottom taking up alot of space...

    You have obviously never used mobile safari before.

    Mobile safari hides top bar when you scroll down the page.

    I really like Atomic. I've been using the Lite version here and there and it's pretty nice. Are there security issues on any of these third-party browsers?
