    Offers full screen & photo off toggle for faster browsing.

    Next version already submitted will have ad blocking, history blocking, and orientation lock.

    Has anyone here tried it? Only 3 reviews in app store at the moment, would like a positive review before I spend 99 cents, looks really good to me =)

    ...there really needs to be a trial period for apps.

    Or how about 24 hours to use an app and if you don't like it you can apply for a refund in itunes?

    i just wanna know it worth or not....
    sometimes iphone safari is not that great for me.

    but one issue comes, as a web developer, i made iphone website by recognize its safari browser user agent; if other browsers here, does the user agent change?

    Download one and try, but they're all still using the exact same rendering engine as the Safari app. They're just adding their own features and buttons to a UIWebView. My guess is that all these browsers will send Safari as the user agent.

    Oooh, I will get it just for that. I NEVER use safari in landscape mode, and I hate how every time I try to browse the web in bed, the orientation keeps switching back and forth. Drives me crazy!!

    My mobile safari useragent was
    Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/525.18.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1.1 Mobile/5G77 Safari/525.20

    In Quicksurf it is missing:
    Version/3.1.1 and Safari/525.20

    In fullscreen mode it has an annoying button in the bottom right corner saying exit which does not disappear (10mm wide, 4mm high and a couple of mm away from the edge of the screen)

    Seems to have a bug with some websites that turns the page background dark grey instead of white (ie. google)

    Doesn't seem to allow multiple pages to be open at the same time like mobile safari.

    Unlike mobile safari the address bar is always at the top of the screen (not hidden by scrolling) when not in full screen mode (also about 3mm more vertical screen space due to smaller bars at the top and bottom)

    Image blocking works well and makes page loading fast, one click of a button and the page reloads with images.

    Sounds good so far, biggest thing is it stable or glitchy?
