Would such a move away from Safari stop the iPad Air crashing problems? Pro's & con's?
From reading on here apparently chrome is just as crashy on iOS7. I know from when running iOS5 on my iPad with Chrome it never really had too many problems and it could operate about 20 tabs just fine, crashing rarely, not sure what the case is, but from here I think it's pretty crashy with Chrome too!
Sometimes Chrome crashes, doesn't seem as often as Safari. My main issue with Chrome on my iPad is sometimes scrolling can be jittery and laggy which wasn't as often on Safari.
I like Chrome for syncing my browsing links and visited sites between my Mac, iPad and Android devices.
I have the Mercury browser and it does not crash nearly as much as Safari. I also don't have the constant tab reloads that Safari has.
For me Chrome, Mercury and Atomic Web seem to be more stable than Safari. That is remarkable as they are all running on top of Safari. My guess and the keyword is guess is that Apple decided reloading tabs on Safari was a way to release memory. The devs on the other browsers evidently didn't set those priorities the same.
That is misinformation. Stop spreading it. Chrome is running a webView which is different than Safari. The javascripnengine is much slower in webViews and they have their own set of issues.
FYI Safari on beta 2 is way more stable and rarely crashes on me. When the next version of IOS comes out, it should solve a lot of these crash problems.
Chrome crashes more than Safari did for me. I have always been a web browser over apps kind of guy but with the retina mini I see myself leaning towards apps over visiting websites. It is so frustrating to be reading something, swap to another tab for reference, come back and crash.
I wish Apple would get it together and put a moderate amount of RAM in these devices instead of the minimum and trying to build all of their applications around that.
Chrome is a free download, just try it for yourself.
I've downloaded both Chrome and Mercury, and both seem pretty nice to me. I don't see as many issues with either, but did get Chrome to crash once.
Before investing time in a browser switch, i.e. Bookmarks, passwords, etc, I thought I'd get some input from the community here on MR.
Do folks feel the password storage on non Safari browsers is secure?
What kind of issues do you have with Safari? Maybe I'm just a light user because I rarely see it crash. Maybe once or twice a week. I just restart and it pretty much goes back to where it was. I imagine it will improve in 7.1.
Chrome crashes just as often as Safari, in my experience. I have Atomic Web, and I am not certain why I don't use it more. I guess I prefer UI on Safari/Chrome, but I am going to give it a go.
I'm using Chrome almost exclusively and have experienced crashes. Not a lot but some.
maybe a full reset? mine does not crash I use Safari
Obviously reading comprehension is not one of you skill sets. Try again.
Does this also apply to Opera?
I think iOS Chrome is built on the same engine as Safari due to Apple app restrictions so I don't think it will crash less. I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time.
No turbo scripting in Chrome, unless you install the tweak after jailbreaking. Safari should load faster than any other web browser on an iOS device.
Personally, I use both Chrome and Safari and don't have an issue with either. When I was jailbroken, both browsers crashed constantly, regardless of what I was doing. After restoring back to stock, neither has crashed, but I don't go over 3 to 4 tabs in use at once either.
You Might Want To Try Puffin
i have never had Puffin crash on me. I tried yesterday to get it crash by opening 20 tabs of the theverge.com on my iPhone 5 and the damn thing was still responsive, no crashes, and no reloading.
I think the main difference from other browsers on IOS is they render content partially on their servers then stream it to you instead of just being a wrapper around the WebView. That is why it is supposed to be 5X faster than Safari.
I tried them all before returning the Air.
Safari, Chrome, Atomic, Puffin, Perfect, Mercury, Dolphin, Apollo and iCab browser.
They all crashed as consistently as each other....
