    Hi;

    I am looking for a browser that will have a bookmark bar accross the top of it for the sites I visit most often. I also want tabs, and preferably when I click one of the sites on the bookmark bar, it will open the site in a new tab. My device is jailbroken if it matters.

    Thanks for any recomendations.

    I've been really happy with Mercury, which just got a nice update. It does what you want, though to open a link in a new tab you need to press and hold, then choose from a contextual menu. It also imports bookmarks from your computer's browser, blocks some ads, uses gestures, and has adjustable font size and screen brightness independent of the iPad settings.

    EDIT: oops, Mercury will not let you open a bookmark bar link in a new tab, only an inline link. However, with one extra tap you can easily create a new tab first, then open a bookmark into it.
