    I already downloaded it and really like it. However, I realized it doesn't have the "reader" function that I like so much on Safari -- unless I missed a setting to turn it on.

    In just about every other way I like it better than Safari.

    So, the only way to get information on the browser is through a video. And the website does not support video delivery through HTML5. Not a good sign.

    Video worked for me.

    Axis not available in the UK yet though. Hrmf. :(

    I assume you mean it works using Flash? I was referring to HTML5 video delivery.

    I love this browser. I put it on my iPhone and iPad. I just dislike the .com. missing on the keyboard when I try to type in a website. But it finds it though.

    Tabs look great on the new iPad.

    A little cluttered and confusing but it seems to be faster than the stock safari browser

    I like to customize. I see how to create folders. How do you delete bookmarks?

    Last time I checked, my iPad didn't support Flash, and the video plays back fine on there...! ;)

    It opens YouTube links in the browser, rather than the YouTube app, which is quite nice.

    Sorry for the confusion. :) I'm on a desktop without Flash installed. I cannot view the video. Seems pretty silly. I guess they serve an alternate version of the page to mobile devices.
