    On several spreadsheets, it shows this as working. However, when I click a link in mail, it opens opera very briefly (my preferred browser), but then opens safari. Is this working properly for others? Any known fix?

    I love how ask for help from the people you just insulted.

    Anyhow, thanks for letting me know about this program. I just installed perfect browser on my iPad and was bemoaning the fact that shitfari was still the default. If I decide to stick with PB, I'll put it on my ip4 and let you know how it works with the changer.

    Works for me using Perfect Browser or Atomic on my iP4. Not a big fan of Safari either.

    what do you dislike about safari and which one do you think is best? ive just been somewhat skeptical of picking up a browser made by a small company rather than one of the established majors. if i could do chrome i would.

    You do know that all the broswers in the App store aren't browsers in the typical sense. They're more like skins for the safari browser with added functions. Opera mini for example is technically a picture viewer. Their server downloads the site and presents it to you as a picture with clickable bits.

    Been using Perfect Browser for quite awhile, initially for full screen capability and now just kinda used to it. PB is updated for iOS 4, does auto fullscreen on page load among other things. Only using Atomic on my iPhone 4 with the Netflix hack so I don't have much experience with it. Initially went with Atomic (which has ad-block built in) on my iPad but PB seems noticeably faster so I switched to PB there as well. My problem with Safari is mainly screen real estate and lack of options compared to the 3rd party alternatives.

    Yeah, this doesn't work for me either on an iP4. I'm using the latest version of Perfect Browser and the current version of Browser Changer set to use Perfect Browser. It opens Safari.

    Update: I found a "Browser" toggle in SBSettings. Turned that on and it's now working for me. I don't know why there's a toggle in there as well as the setting for the app itself, but whatever - it works.

    Love everything about Atomic minus the icon. It's hideous.
