    Haven't tried that browser. I am kind of leery of anything that calls itself "perfect"! Personally, I use the Atomic browser. Its worth every bit of the 99¢ it cost!

    YES!!! I agree enthusiastically. I do not use the Safari browser anymore as the Atomic browser works almost like a normal laptop browser; tabs and all.

    I'd like to put another plug in for the Atomic Browser. It's been fantastic, and I can change the colors! That might seem superficial, but it's nice to have a change in scenery. It keeps my browser looking fresh.

    Another vote for Atomic. I have installed and used Perfect Browser. It is not a bad browser and better than Safari, but it is not as good as Atomic. Expecially with the recent update to Atomic.

    If you switch from Safari to Atomic are your bookmarks retained?

    I also used Atomic but recently tried iCab and I think I like that more as it has better tabs, built in downloader as well.

    Resurrecting a dead thread here. Everyone was Atomic in July. Now that we are in October what is the thoughts on Perfect Browser now? Anyone using it? It seems to get great ratings.

    Still using Atomic here and it does what I need it to do... namely emulate other browsers. To be honest though, I am not a real heavy-duty surfer on my iPad. My primary use is for reading and of course all of my music is on there.

    I am going to be using it primarily as a browser. Anybody else happen to try Perfect Browser?

    One more vote for Atomic.
    Its great feature is the emulation of other browsers.

    I'm running Perfect, and while I would not call it "Perfect" myself, it's WAY WAY better than the Safari that came with the iPad. It can run in emulation mode of any browser you wish (mobile Safari, Safari iPad, Safari Mac, Firefox 3.6, Internet Explorer 6-8, Opera 10.5, and Google Chrome). It has private browsing mode, and full-screen mode.

    The only problem I have with it is that it also does not allow flash to run; which was claimed to be available by one of the reviews on the app page. I guess the guy was thinking javascript when he said flash; but then again JS also is not working properly in Safari or the iPad at the moment either (due to the update that is needed).

    I don't know how it compares to the Atomic browser; I have not used both. The best thing about Perfect is that you can have multiple tabs open and the browser keeps them active. It does not have to re-load each page when you switch windows like iOS safari does. I would assume this is the same for Atomic; but don't know.

    One problem I have had with Safari and Perfect is that you can't scroll on text boxes within a window because the iOS thinks you want to drag the entire page. Is there a way to lock the scroll on the iPad so you can "drag" like you would with a mouse (left click and then pull)? Sorry if this is a Newb question; but I am a Newb to the iPad having just got it a couple of weeks ago.

    From what I read in this thread or in the app store the discription of Atomic seems to indicate it doesn't reload. pages like Safari.

    I understand about not being able to scroll in a post on Safari, I've already ran across that a couple of times. If somebody drops their quote below the screen you can't get into the screen properly.

    As far as Flash, I'll bet it does have some limited flash. In the Android Market there is a browser that has some flash but didn't work on every site. Flash doesn't really concern me.

    Thanks for the feedback. One more question for those of you with Automic. Does it allow scrolling in a window of a post. For example if you were to try and quote me the way I'm going to end this post are you able to do it? I've signed it several lines below this post.

    Scroll with two fingers instead of one (no, not that one!).
