    Safari's lack of tab support makes it seem pretty archaic. I'm using Dolphin browser now. By far the best ios browser I've come across. What's your browser of choice?

    I use Atomic because of the downloading and user agent faker. I have SDM, but can't find the conflict to get it to work right .

    Scarlet

    What's Dolphin? Do I need to investigate ... ?

    I'm using Atomic. Provides the best "desktop" like experience out of the browsers I've tried so far. Going to try Photon next.

    iCab for me.

    Problem is, scrolling on 3rd-party browsers can be choppy, because there is a private API that Apple uses for its own WebKit applications, but doesn't allow third-party developers to use.

    I used to be all about icab but lately I find I prefer Atomic. I will use whichever one updates their graphics to retina first. I hate Safari because often I want to listen to a youtube video and then look at something else on the web, in Safari once you switch from the youtube tab it quits playing it whereas in Atomic and icab the audio will keep playing even if you are looking at something else in a different tab. Also I hate how when you open a new tab safari automatically puts you in the google search bar. Just because I open a new tab doesn't mean I want to search something, just opening to a blank page would be better for me

    Atomic here. Like the tab experience / control and the ad blocker, though I appreciate these features are not unusual these days in alternative browsers to Safari. Easy migration of my desktop's Firefox Bookmarks was a bonus at the time, too.

    Safari user here also. I don't really see the need to use something else. Safari meets my current needs.

    surprised no one said Skyfire which lets you watch flash videos on the iPhone.
    Cool browsing.

    But I'm also with the second guy as I don't browse much.
    Laptop is always nearby. Or an App.

    Safari is by far the best, just because it is integrated so deeply with the system.

    That's definitely one thing I'm missing, but I've found the pros of dolphin significantly outweigh the cons of not having an integrated browser. I still use safari for those times when it's required.

    Im testing out Mercury now, and so far it's a pretty solid mobile browser.

    Does anyone know if Opera ever fixed their embarrassing lack of zoom support?

    Safari about 95% of the time. The other is Skyfire.

    I mostly use Safari now that full screen Safari is available via jailbreak. On occasion I'll use SkyFire to few certain videos that Safari can't display.

    What exactly is lacking? I'm curious what you mean by that.

    I use Safari because it syncs bookmarks between all my Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, MacBook Air, iMac), and because I use Safari Reader, and it syncs up as well.

    I think the person is referring to tabbed browsing. Having more than one page open and being able to just
    go through them with one touch tabs instead of shrinking the view and having to scroll through them.

    But Safari has Tabs. Or have I misunderstood something?

    I am mostly Safari because of the syncing of bookmarks. I have Opera and Atomic on my iPhone for in case I am in an Edge area and I want just the "info" and not all the pics. Loads quicker In those low signal areas.
