    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO7-aK2tQjg]YouTube - Safari-like Tabs for iPad With Terra Browser - iOS Vlog 390[/ame]​

    Terra is a browser that isn't trying to be anything flashy, like some out there. This browser simply adds page tabs to the top of your screen on your iPad. When using almost any browser on a Mac or PC, you will almost always see the tabs at the top and easily accessible. Unfortunately, Mobile Safari likes to have a whole separate page to thumbnail all of your tabs. This is sometime annoying and takes an extra, unneeded step. Thankfully, Terra has this access right where it should be, along with a few other small features. You can browse your pages fullscreen so you don't have to deal with the extra line of tabs, or the navigation bar. Along with this you can also set what you want your browser to be recognized as, so you don't have to deal with mobile optimized sites,(like YouTube). Terra is free in the App Store, what a great deal.

    Apps sometimes disappear from the AppStore, while they are in the process of being updated. Terra should be back in the AppStore in no time.

    Guess I am one of those lucky early birds. I was raving about it for ages on iPF for all to download. It is my most used app.

    Terra is a really a great browser. I seems fairly quick but I can't really quantify it. Does anyone know if it's actually faster than safari. It's definitely more functional.

    Still not back in the App Store yet. I'm looking forward to trying this since I haven't found a browser that full fits my needs yet.

    I started up Terra a moment ago and got a popup asking if I would like to make it my "preferred browser" (not "default" browser). Though I did not opt for it, I wondered if it was a poll of some kind, or if they had gotten it to somehow mimic a default browser.

    I read somewhere that you can do that if you jailbreak your iPad 2. Unfortunately, I have not seen a JB for the iPad 2 although one is close to being available.

    I wonder what it means by preferred? Anything in the doco? That would be a big inducement to buy it.
