    Would like to hear from JB users here, which Browser do you sue on your 6 Plus, or any iPhone for that matter ?

    I was a big Chrome guy on my Android phones, and then tried Safari when I got my 6 Plus last week, didn't like it at first, so I installed Chrome on the 6 Plus, it felt different and slow, and was very hard to run one handed. So I went back to Safari due to the bottom menu bar, making using the web much easier on a big phone.

    But I am open to ideas / suggestions ? I also tried Mercury, it was ok, but Safari and Chrome both felt better. Is there a way to keep a bottom menu bar on Chrome all the time, like I am with Safari and a tweak a Bruins fan told me about ?

    Oh yeah, what about that Cydia app ' Nitrous ' ? Is that worth buying, or is it only good for non Safari users ? And is it bad on battery life ?

    Safari and at times chrome when I want to sign in a site with two different credentials at the same time.

    Usually Safari. I'll use Chrome occasionally so I can use one browser for background audio while still browsing on the other.

    Dolphin.

    I hate Safari with a passion on every platform it exists on.

    Nitrous is good. Makes other browsers faster than safari.

    Puffin is good.

    I use Windows on my laptop, so Chrome is convenient for the synced tabs back to my iPhone. Also synced history and bookmarks, plus when I go to a Google site, it offers auto sign in using my Google/Chrome credentials.

    Perfect browser. Can't be doing with the tabs in Safari. I like proper tabs across the top. As if I were on a pc.

    Chrome for me - syncing open tabs between my Mac, iPhone and Ipad works great.

    Safari with the Fascy tweak all day!

    But I use Dolphin from the App Store because of its built in download feature. It's actually a great browser except the UI is outdated. It needs swipe back and forth capabilities badly. But it has some other neat features like built in ad blocking.

    You always have the best advice, even though you're a Bruins fan :p Joking :)

    I installed 'Fascy' and was just what I wanted. Last few days was thinking, man Safari scrolling is slow and lame. This solved that.

    Haha thanks! Been jailbreaking for many years now and stay up to date on all new releases (although I hardly ever install new stuff since I don't find them useful/necessary). I tend to install tweaks that make my device easier/better to use.

    Fascy used to be called Webscrollian. It was a tweak that was released when devs held an awesome Tweak Week challenge several years ago where they each released a new tweak per day. This was one of the releases by a dev named chpwn. He made some awesome stuff but has left the community for greener pastures. Anyways, another dev picked up development for this tweak when he left. The new dev is r_plus. He's also released some pretty cool tweaks in my opinion.

    Glad you like it! What's awesome is that Fascy works system wide in all UIWebViews, not just safari. :D
