    What's your favorite iOS browser and why? I'm jailbroken so I can change the default browser.

    I only know of 3 so I'll make a poll and if you have any others you've tried tell me and I'll add them.

    Safari is a great mobile browser but its very minimalist which is both its greatest strength and weakness.

    Dolphin on the other hand offers equal performance and elegantly adds many desktop browser features.

    If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend you give it a spin.

    Needs more options, but I pick Atomic. Full screen browsing is a great feature that Safari doesn't provide. I also prefer Atomic's tab system to Safari's.

    Hope Safari in iOS 6 gets the united "Chrome type" search/address bar like Safari in Mountain Lion.

    I love Dolphin. Although the experience is 100x times better on Android because of the add-ons. So I have stuck to Safari on iOS which is good for me.

    Prefer Atomic but Safari is faster, so I use Safari.

    Unfortunately, I haven't tried an IOS browser that pleases me. An IOS version of the full Firefox browser would be nice.

    Mobile Safari on iOS. Safari on Mac. I see no reason to use anything else.

    Been using Safari on iPhone 4 and iPad2. Wish it had tabs on iPhone, but works well enough. Started using Safari on my PC, primarily to tap into iCloud email, contacts and calendar. Use Firefox otherwise on PC.

    I primarily use safari. I use Dolphin and Opera as secondaries. I don't like how some pages load in Opera and Dolphin is too slow on my device to use as a primary browser.

    ICab Mobil is the best browser out there.
    Why you don't have it in your poll I don't get.

    Didn't know about it and I don't know how to add more options to the poll. Do you know how?

    I don't think you can add to the poll once it is made.
    Sorry was typing to fast and didn't mean to come across as an a$$.
    If I would have taken a second it would have been apparent that you just didn't know about iCab.

    It is well worth to check out if you get a chance.
