To me? It's ability to move between tabs more easily, to open more tabs than Safari (and in the background, no less), and to configure gestures for various functions. Despite being made by someone other than Apple, Atomic makes better use of the iPad's touch interface than Safari.

I also like that you can put all your bookmarks on the menu bar, as you can swipe it back and forth if they don't fit the screen. And as been mentioned numerous times, you can set the user-agent to another browser, so you're not sent to the mobile version of a web site that wrongly identifies Safari Mobile for Ipad.

I first got atomic lite but just today got the full version, looks good, kinda reminds me of firefox, does anybody know how to import the books marks from safari on the iPad..?

Tabs are the big thing for me. Additionally, I feel like it handles bookmarks better - but that may be that my limited mind did not understand Safari's bookmark capabilities.

Perfect Browser has the rendering option from the gear icon, so you don't have to go several clicks into the settings menu to change this on the fly.
I haven't tried it, but Perfect Browser also has a function called vBulletin Forum Helper from the Bookmark Menu that lets you reply or create threads on forums that use vBulletin software. It says the text box is grayed out and this lets you enter text. Will give it a try on my next post and update.

That's what I was looking for... a way to make Atomic the browser that other apps look for. At least Windows lets you select a default browser other than Explorer!

That requires jailbreaking, right?
Yes, it does.
