    Which browser are you using on your Ipad 4

    Hello Got my ipad this past weekend. Currently I am using icab but its not as fast as Safari when it comes to loading pages. Things that I love about icab is that you could download files and it has a fullscreen option. Is there a tweak I could do on icab to speed it up? Is there another browser out there that is as fast as safari or faster. I have try chrome and its still not as fast as safari. Thanks

    We had this discussion a while back...
    The concensus was there is no other browser that can possibly be faster than Safari.

    More/different features, yes.........faster no.

    Well I would use only Safari except that it does not open a lot of Microsoft sites.
    Those sites are still important to me as my friends and I still use PCs for the heavy lifting.
    I have Atomic Web installed on iPad and use it for most searching.
    Is it fast?
    I don't care because it opens everything, that's more important than outright speed.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. After using icab for the day I think icab is want I'm looking for. The option for fullscreen outweight the speed vs safari.

    You can have as many browsers on your iPad as you wish, I have four.

    Can you please tell me why you want the option for "full-screen" on icab and why safari doesn't offer it? I haven't bought my iPad yet, probably will this Friday, so want to make sure I get it set up correctly.

    Thanks!

    Personal Preference thats it. On icab with fullscreen Im able to see more of the web page vs safari which cant cause of the toolbar. No Safari does not offer this. There is Atomic Lite which offer a fulllscreen (no toolbar) and its free compare to icab which is not free.

    I currently use Safari, although I like Chrome as well. In my opinion Safari is the quickest and also it is what I've become accustomed too on my iPhone and now my iPad 4!
