Hi all!

Just got the new iPad and on it now, the screen and usability is incredible!

Few questions though... App wise - what is the best browser to use? Do most of you just stick to safari or are there better alternatives? In terms of downloading is there anything better?

Also - I've got avplayerhd for my video which is working well, but what was th app thA was really good for streaming video from my MBP?

Thank you!

Leigh

If you give Safari a chance you will like it, at least I did but then I came from Windows:eek:

There are other browsers but I became so happy with safari that I looked no farther.

I still use Safari most of the time but I use Photon for flash content. My husband goes to a lot of sites that have flash so he uses Photon exclusively. The reason I don't is that their bookmark organization is really, really bad. Meaning that it has no way to organize or rename them.

I highly recommend Goodplayer for this situation. There is a thread in thenipad apps section of this forum about Goodplayer and the developer is active in that thread.
