    I always used to use Atomic browser but ever since the iPhone 5's bigger screen + safari's new full screen mode I'm hooked! :)

    Anyone else now switched back to safari on the iPhone 5?

    Or are you still using a different browser? If so which one and why?

    i don't see why anyone would use a different browser on iOS...
    Safari is the fastest one ..and I thought speed is the most important thing when it comes to web browsing.

    Back to safari until chrome comes out with an update.

    Before safari's new full screen mode for landscape I needed Atomic for this. Safari was waaaaay too cramped before in landscape with both the status bar above and control bar below taking up valuable space.

    I agree though how the speed of safari is amazing :)

    i don't why in the world would anyone use anything but safari. it's much faster, plus integrated with the os.

    Atomic remains my favorite by far.

    I attempted to like the new Safari, but Atomic remains the fastest. If speed wasn't so important in order to knock out my heavy work load, I'd have more patience with Safari.

    There is no way Atomic is faster since it doesn't have access to the nitro javascript engine like safari does.

    iCab Browser but Atomic is good also. I'll take a ton of features over a few milliseconds of safari speed difference.

    I like using chrome simply for syncing tabs across different platforms. Can come to work and pick up right where I left off at home.
