    How many of you are really taking advantage of Safari?

    I'm actually subscribing via ipadforums RSS feed with Google Reader to view new threads. When I see a good topic, I then jump to the forums and respond or just subscribe via thread tools to the thread to get notifications of new posts. So, I can use my desktop with Google Reader, or River of News on the iPad. River of News pulls my Google Reader feeds, and has a built in browser feature which makes it easy to post and subscribe to threads. I decided on River of News for my iPad RSS reader over all the others available because it's what I like, but there are plenty of other RSS readers for the iPad. Also, using RSS feeds is much more lightweight on bandwidth when I'm using my Android 3g WiFi tether with my iPad. Not to mention that all of the email notifications to the threads I subscribe to are text based. Keeps participation in forums nice and bandwidth light!

    I'm here with the iPad, but using Atomic Browser. Ever so much easier to see a topic I like and click to open the tab in bakground. That way, I just read all at once (versus Safari's open/close, open/close, op......)

    Actually, about 75% of the time it is from my iPad. the other 25% is from my laptop. It just depends on where I am and what I am working on.

    I think I'm about the same, but maybe more like 60% and 40%

    Ive basically converted to 100% of using my ipad. I cant go back to slow desktop. Dont have the patience for it. Especially since its a lil outdated now, like 2002 or somethin..lol. I dont prefer to use Safari but i use it alot. My other favs. Are Aromic browser and Full web browser. Both are excellent and let u view fullscreen. The only drawbck to safari really.
