    Someone on this forum recommended this browser: Mercury Browser

    For anyone who are having issues with small fonts and and fuzzy looking text on safari web browser when viewing it on an iPad Mini, should try out Mercury Browser.

    Just played with it for about 15 minutes. Pretty awesome.

    Able to change font size.
    Seems to have better font rendering than safari.
    Multi-Gestures support
    Firefox/Chrome bookmark syncing

    It's free.

    I'm enjoying viewing webpages a lot more on Mecury Browser than safari. Text looks really nice even in small fonts.

    Just installed Mercury Browser and will give it a try. If good, I'll upgrade to the Pro version.

    Way too much work having to change font size on almost every page.

    Mercury browser seems to remember your font size. Although it does take a second to readjust font size after it finishes loading a page. No biggie.


    Didn't realize there was a pro Version. Guess that's how they make money.

    99 cents. Cheap.

    Not sure what the pro version offers though.

    Yep! I was the one who recommended it. It's pretty fast, interface looks great and it keeps the font size. The larger font makes it so much easier to read on the mini.

    Not sure what's the difference between the Free and Pro.
