    Would you guys say that Atomic Browser is the best way to use FB because its full site + chat works in it UNLIKE SAFARI!?

    Or would you say the iphone FB app

    or maybe those new ipad fb apps - friendly and or social app

    im talking for casual use, update statuses, comment on walls / photos, and most importantly, CHAT.

    Does anyone know if Social has chat?

    I use safari for fb and the aim client for chat. not ideal but it works I suppose. I tried atomic to use fb chat and it was hardly useable. slow and buggy well chatting.

    I use safari for facebook, the iPhone app for uploading pictures and another app for chat. Not being apple to upload anything via safari is lame and aggravates me to no end.

    I use Safari to browse and post.

    I use the iPhone app to post pictures.

    I don't chat. Ever. It annoys me.

    IMO, Friendly! is the best for browsing facebook. I've never had a problem with the chat, or anything....

    Try "Friendly - Facebook browser". Works pretty well.

    FaceBook on iPad

    This may seem crazy but i had to jail break my ipad...this allows me to do screencasts using my ipad on screen for recording. The cool thing is they have a great way to view the iphone facebook app for ipad. I was a bit worried about the jail break. However, it has worked great, very stable and i jail broke it a couple months ago.

    I have to say that this isn't as good as the full website. More limited if you ask me

    I still prefer Facebook native app using the fullforce plugin from cydia. Stay away from social, it wants your permission to mine your data while your offline, but friendly is nice and has chat.

    I jailbroke my iPad, then installed an app called FullForce, it forces apps to run in iPad mode (not all apps work, however). And then I just use the normal Facebook iPhone app. Works great.

    The full site in Safari is best. It's the most featured and they've got rid of the clutter on profiles. I use the iPhone app (FullForced) if I need to upload images or chat.
