    What is your favorite way to read macrumors.com on an iPad? I'd like to read it using an RSS reader app, but since the macrumors.com RSS feed just contains excerpts, most of those apps don't work that well. The RSS feed doesn't even contain images, which makes things not stand out very well. For instance, I attached an image from the Pulse app, which looks great for other feeds, but the Macrumors feed at the bottom just doesn't stand out.

    Safari

    and Tapatalk


    Actually, my iPad comes in the mail this week. So what I mean to say is, I expect to use Safari and Tapatalk to browse MacRumors.

    Damn, I've had Tapatalk for a while and had no idea Macrumors was available on there. My productivity at work is going to get even worse.

    The Atomic browser. When I go through the forums, I can open all the threads I think are going to be interesting in a background tab and then go thru them one at a time.

    I thought it was interesting that a lot of people use Tapatalk, so I've downloaded it and going to give it a try. Seems like it would be nice having all the forums I read in one place.

    I use Atomic as well. I always keep the forum spy in at least 1 tab.

    I also use Atomic as well and it gets 2 thumbs up. Set your options so that everything displays like a desktop browser, vice mobile browser. Ensures all pages look just like your desktop and you don't get auto-forwarded to a mobile site.

    Not to mention the use of swipe gestures. 2 finger swipe to go back and forth between pages and 3 fingered tap to bring up bookmarks. Gestures are totally configurable.

    Terra is another good "tabbed" browser, but I prefer Atomic. I hope that iOS 5 brings tabs to Safari.

    I love atomic too. I just hate their icon. Can't wait till there's a jailbreak for iPad 2 so I can change it, among other things lol, but yah atomic ftw

    i like iCab. It's just another tabbed browser like atomic, terra, or mercury, but its aesthetics are pretty much apple-like. looks just like the default safari browser except with tabs and much more. well worth the purchase, love it.

    If it weren't for their icon I'd have it in my doc. Seriously ugly.

    I have to say Safari. I should really say iCab, as it's aesthetically pleasing as Safari, with a lot more features, but it has one annoying bug at the moment - the cursor disappears regularly in text input fields, and you have to refresh the page to get it back. Annoying.

    I am using Tapatalk but wish macrumors would add forum runner support. Forum runner seems much faster and doesn't crash like tapatalk does on my iPad 2.
