Opera Mini - Fast Web Browser Now for iPad
The free Opera Mini web browser has worked quite well on my iPhone. It's very speedy and its compression abilities (to save on 3G data use) outstanding. The app was just updated to universal and now runs on the iPad.
I've been using it for a while this morning and it is impressive!
Opera Mini & Opera Mobile browsers
Between that and the Atomic Web Browser (which is a bit more robust although not as fast as Opera) my iPad web browsing experience is pretty satisfying (and don't even think about mentioning the "F" word here! ;) )
