Let's figure this out once and for all.
icab hands freaking down. try it. love it.
Atomic Browser's pretty solid.
Added a poll.
+1 for iCab. I haven't used anything else for months, except when an external link opens Safari by default.
+2 for iCab, I've tried many of the others, iCab beats them hands down. Especially for its download and limited upload support.
Atomic seems to be winning so far. I think that's the best bang for your buck.
Does anybody remember the huge deal about Opera getting into the App store and now nobody uses it?
I have been using it ever since it came out.
Worth every penny.
I sure do remember because I use Opera on my Winders laptop, and have used it on PDAs in the past
But, they have dropped the ball, it hasn't been updated since May, and it's an iPhone /iPod Touch app. They never made it a universal or iPad app. I avoid iPhone only apps like the plague.
Definitely going to have to go with Atomic!
I could not believe they never updated it. I was looking forward to a browser with that many resources behind it but nope, never took off.
I used Atomic exclusively until the day I bought iCab... Sorry Atomic, iCab is now my mistress
What makes iCab better than Atomic other than the way it looks?
Terra browser anyone?
Not as feature rich as the paid browsers, I'm afraid.
Maybe I should try some of the paid ones. I never really looked into them since safari seems ok to me.
I tried to use Terra but I prefer to use Atomic browser. It's user friendly makes me browse more fast.
For me, Atomic crashed a LOT. To the point of being frustrating and unusable. While iCab is not perfect and crashes sometimes too, it's few and far between for me. Much better.
I've had no problems with atomic. I use it for Ipad and iPhone. I am willing to try others. Is icab a lot better?
The fast scroll bar overlaying the web page on "Perfect Browser" is the one thing that wins it for me.
I don't know if any other browsers offer this, but the ability to move your finger up and down about 3" and be able to scroll through an entire long web page is an unbeatable feature and one I think every browser should have.
So much better than having to swipe up and down perhaps a dozen times to get to the bottom of a page.
On this topic.
What are the chances that Apple will allow us to set a "Default Browser" like you can on most other devices?
I don't use Safari and find it annoying that Safari always loads up whenever I touch a link someone emails me, or a link in an app.
There is also the LastPass Tab Browser, I Use Safari because it's the default one anyway
There is a chance, not just for that but for Video files and other stuff, however, apps made by apple always got "Special Treatment" with features Developers can't access
