    I voted Safari.

    Overall, it's consistently fast and very stable.

    Alternately, I have Terra as a secondary browser and iSwifter in case I need to see anything in flash.

    Well, if I can only choose one, I guess it has to be Safari. But for anything that Safari can't do (besides Flash) I like Atomic.

    I have Skyfire as an app but rarely have to use it. I do fine with Safari so just went ahead and rolled with it for my vote.

    I use iCab.
    Tabs, full screen without nav bar, and you can change your Browser ID.

    Terra and Perfect Browser both load faster than Safari for me. I'm switching back and forth between them trying to decide which will be my main use BUT with so many apps I really don't use my browser that much, only searches and links

    Atomic - desktop like browsing, dropbox integration, built in downloader, tabs, changeable Browser ID, Privacy options, Adblock, multitouch support.. What's not to like?

    Safari is adequate, but Atomic is worth spending the money on.

    Mine would be Safari as well. I have tried other browsers as well, but I always find myself going back to Safari. It seems to be adequate enough for my needs. The only thing I don't like about it is that it can't tab, and I always end up getting the bookmark button and the multiple page button mixed up.

    I like to use Atomic when browsing this forum, for example. I can open in tabs - which is nice. I can open tabs as I scroll down the forum, selecting the posts I wish to read. It behaves very similar to my PC browser, Firefox. I like tabs...

    I usually use Safari though for default & generic web browsing. It's just easier...

    Thats not even the beginning. There are scores (if not hundreds) of third party browsers, though you can probably narrow the list of excellent ones to less than ten.

    Atomic has good download options. And GoodReader has a built in browser to do downloads.

    I like Safari for just about everything but downloads, and the occasional need to bypass a mobile site.

    Sarafi is the Arab version, it translates everything to those beautiful squiggles...:p

    Out of the 12 browsers I've installed, iCabMobile is my favorite.

    I can't find this.

    I'm going to try some of these. I find Safari to be not so great. If I search Google images for one, when I try scrolling down it bounces back to the top. It has happened on a few web sites.
    That is on my iphone and ipod touch. I don't have my ipad just yet.

    I voted for Atomic because of the great setup and I'm a long time user of it BUT I'm finding Icab becoming my new fav. It's just like Atomic browser, only better. If i would have been using icab a lot longer I would've voted that as my fav. But I can't do Atomic browser like that..lol I like the fact for atomic browser I can set a password for it. So anyone else who tries to open it, can't, because they don't know my passcode ;-)

    Really? Weird. I know it's in the "games" category for some reason but it's more useful as a browser. Couple of things though- you can only browse for a few minutes before it prompts you to buy full version. If you don't purchase it, it takes you back to the home screen and you have to search all over again. Other thing is that you have to be on wifi- doesn't work on 3G.
