    I am new at this so if this has been discussed I apologize. I just got my new Ipad and love it. The only problem is that I need explorer or firefox to access my schedule at work (I am an airline pilot). Safari will not do it (and not only on the Ipad, but also my Imac). Does anyone have any info on either of those browsers or any substitution? I would hate to have to carry a separate computer just for that one function.

    It depends on what setup is being used for your schedule. If it is on Outlook, or some other program, you may still be able to use your iPad without much issue. As an example, my work calendar, e-mail, and contacts are on Outlook at work, yet I can access them automatically on my iPad. There are other web browsers available, but I do not know anything about them or if they would resolve your problem.

    If it's just a matter of the website complaining you don't have a supported browser, Atomic can report that it is many different browsers.

    My problem stems from Safari not having something. i can't use it on any computer. However Explorer and Firefox work fine. Looks like I'm out of luck until Apple allows Firefox for Ipad. I was hoping there might be some random browser out there that might work.

    Atomic is amazing and it can be changed through it's settings to appear as many other browsers including firefox. It is the only browser I use. Can't say enough good things about it. Try it out, you won't regret it.

    Atomic Web Browser and Perfect Browser are two great browsers that can both spoof a website into thinking you're running Firefox, IE, etc. Try those out and see if they suit your needs. ;o

    You might also try Opera for iPhone. It will look terrible because its an iPhone browser, but if it works, it might be better than nothing.

    Maybe you should try iCabMobile.

    Atomic is the best for me. I am using Safari on my Vista PC for the past year. Importing the bookmarks from the PC was so easy. I think the iPad Safari sucks.
