    The Safari browser on my iPad will not download a file I want. Firefox browser is not usable/downloadable to iPad. Is ther another good Free browser that anyone recommends?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    The Atomic Lite browser is good but its probably not going to download anything that Safari won't.

    The question is what kind of file. PDFs dl very easily by putting a gr in front if the URL and they open in Goodreader, assuming you have installed Goodreader. If you mention the file format perhaps someone can help.

    I've used Atomic and just added Terra (tabs) but they all are more or less Safari based as I understand it altho' they will simulate a Foxfire or IE experience.
