    So far I purchased this browsers! Atomic, ( sucks, it crashes, bad interface) maven ( sucks, crashes a lot! Awful interface!)
    I don't want to buy skyfire, cause I had it in android, and I didn't like it so much...I heard about mercury browser, but I don't want to buy it, unless it's worth it..
    Do you have any suggestions? Which one is your favorite browser?

    There's a lite (5 minute viewing time) of iSwifter...

    By the way, you can get your money back on your previous purchases; call the Apple Support line with your purchase reference (from your iTunes invoice) and they'll credit the amount to your iTunes account; many members have done this and there's never been a case that's been refused.

    You could try Terra. It is a free browser, but I find it much better than Atomic.

    I tried some free and some paid but the best one FOR ME so far is icab. I use Puffin for Flash content containing sites but icab for everything else now. I haven't tried to upload anything from it yet, because I use istorages built in browser for that, but it is supposed to work for that as well.
    I like that it fits MY style of usage best of the ones I've tried.

    I've never had any trouble with Atomic. Were you using the lite version or the full?

    Out of curiosity, why? I've tried a couple and honestly haven't noticed much difference, but I haven't tried Terra.

    There is really only one thing I don't like about Atomic. It doesn't delete the address automatically when tapping onto the address bar and typing something. Instead it writes the address at the end of the previous address. Other browsers, such as Safari and Terra automatically delete the previous address when you start typing. This may seem a small thing, but to me it makes using Atomic really frustrating to use.

    Gotcha. Search boxes in the App Store do the same thing...small annoyance, but an annoyance.

    I use terra and love it. While it doesn't have flash, it has tabs which are very useful

    I find iCab Mobile is the fullest featured browser and fulfils all my needs...

    Atomic for me :)

    Doesn't do flash, but then neither do the others in my experience.

    I like Terra, but it doesn't have a permanent on-screen favorites list. This is very important to me.

    Well I use mercury and I love it. I installed the "shortcut" (or whatever it is called) in safari and so can move whatever I'm browsing on safari there. I like the multiple tabs and the ability to download. It's cash well spent on the app store for me. I have a few others that I haven't cared to use...and yeah I use iswifter to watch my flash videos - a little buggy though but it gets the job done.

    Well you could get the free version of mercury and try it. You're limited in the number of tabs you can open but the experience is about the same.

    How do you get so many crashes? I've tested those without ever crashing. Are you on an ipad1 jail breaked, or iPad 2 ?

    Someone ought to compile a spreadsheet! (not me!)

    So far for me,

    Mercury pro. Worth the pound, imo. I like the functions, buttons, tiles, tabs, bookmark bar, and the wheel of destiny pop up.

    No flash though on Mercury, hence Puffin for flash.

    iSwifter for the cute icon with the blue rocket. Looks a nice icon, if it came as a fridge magnet I'd put it on my fridge. As a browser I've used more convincing fridge magnets...

    Icab web browser is really the best, i tried it out, thanks to you, its feels like Firefox. My Atomic crashes too much for my comfort, maybe it doesn't crash, but explodes. :D

    Ok, guys...I purchased mercury...thanks to all the reviews you posted...XD
    So far it's going good, I couldn't give my approval yet. But I will let you know...I'm tired of buying browsers...if this fail, I guess skyfire will be the last resource. I don't want to, but I'll see...
