    Hi once again,

    The phenomenal increase of popularity of our Terra Browser was a nice surprise for us. Terra became #1 Free iPad app on the AppStore.

    [​IMG]

    Terra Browser is simple yet powerful browser for your iPad.

    So what's so cool about Terra you will ask?
    The answer is:
    -Tabbed browsing
    -Full Screen
    -Incognito mode
    -Save pages to browse them offline
    -Amazingly clean UI
    -Text search
    -Swipe Gestures (navigate between tabs)
    -Password protection
    -Send links by e-mail
    -Bookmarks

    The most recent update provided:

    Safari-like Open In interface
    - Now you can open any document or file with associated application (doc, docx, rtf, xls, xlsx, pdf, webarchive) by simply tapping on it.
    Import bookmarks
    - Import bookmarks from any desktop browser with iTunes.
    File sharing
    - Now all your downloaded files are available in Documents folder with iTunes

    Terra is absolutely free. Right now, we roughly have 100,000 daily active users. Yet more to come, we hope. Go get it!

    I will be glad to answer your questions, hear suggestions and feedback.

    I'm almost converted, other than the fact I cant seem to have my book marks on the top of the screen visible at all times like I can in Safari ?

    I'm generally a firefox user, so tabs are important. This is a good thing. This for me is the only place where Safari on the iPad falls down.

    Also, having my favs listed at the top of the screen at all times is very important and comforting. More important than tabs IMO. Sort this out and I'll be a convert :)

    Love it, I've already moved safari out of the way and replaced it with terra. Only question I have is how I can set it to remember information I enter into web forms, usernames, passwords, etc. I'm sure I set that up today when I downloaded it but now I can't find that setting within the app and there's no customization within the settings area? Please help if you can mr Readdle :)

    Edit, I think ive had an embarrassing fail here. Obviously I downloaded terra then configured safari within settings to remember info entered. Can I do that within terra or if not is that option in the pipeline?

    Cheers.

    Yes, if you can make it default browser in that sense, it would be perfect! I also have another suggestion/idea.... Can I open multiple windows in the same terra app... Or can I form another 'group' of tabs? Infinite tabs is amazing... If such a feature was available, it would help keep my browsing organized... Thanks...

    P.S. : Did I forget to mention? TERRA ROCKS! :)

    I've just installed Atomic as my main browser, purely because Terra doesn't show favorites onscreen permanently.

    So, to officially change the default browser the only way is to jailbreak?

    That is indeed the only option of changing the default browser.

    Terra seems to work pretty well for me. Some minor stuff here and there, but overall I'm happy.

    Unfortunately, no, there is no way to change the default browser on a stock iPad. You have to use Safari.

    If you jail break your iPad, you can download a tweak from Cydia (the jail breaker's "app store") that will allow you to set a new default browser.

    But, again, this is not possible with a stock iPad. Sorry.
