    Happy holidays! I am (another) new iPad 2 user trying his wings since receiving my iPad 2. I'm interested in finding a browser different from Safari that other iPad 2 users like. Any suggestions?

    Hi! I just got my iPad 2 as well, and have mostly been using Safari, but I did download the Dolphin HD browser. I have it on my Android phone and love it, it's my primary browser on my phone, just haven't played around with it too much yet on the iPad.

    Atomic, Dolphin, iCab, Opera, Terra are ones I've tried and like for different reasons.

    I also like NightOwl (lets you adjust to really dim brightness settings at night, for instance) and SplitScreen (splits your screen so you can have two Web pages open; good for limited uses).
