    Basically from reading all the reviews on the web on possible Iphone web browsers other than Safari. I came down to ICab is probaly the best alternative to web browsing on the Iphone. With Filters, Tabs where you can open web pages at the same time and probaly the 2 better features downloads from the web and fullscreen mode.

    But I haven't tried it yet. So is there anyone out there with experience who can comment on Icab vs Safari.

    Thanks
    Josh

    iCab was just updated. 2.0 is definitely better than Safari. The only thing missing is the ability to enter text fields for forum threads.

    I'm playing with it now, not sure it's any better than Safari.

    The ability to download, open tabs in background and full screen is what does it for me.

    Question re Vanillasurf... Can you download files (ie mp3) from sites and is it possible to post to forums from it?

    They are all just Safari with a different skin.

    Except with icab you can download and save files, open tabs in background and view in full screen.

    this would be the reason why i would not use it.

    An alternative because I doubt anyone would delete Safari. Have both on the phone. I browse message boards on my phone also. So I'm gonna keep both. Downloading is a big plus for me.
