    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
