    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.

    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.

    Does anybody else think the atomic browser increases web speed?

    You could also try CloudBrowse since that one will even render flash pages(remotely).

    The only problem is that cloudbrowse would not be a secure thing to use if your work requres your calendar and everything to be access securely. The way cloudbrowse and Opera Mini work is by haveing a remote machine on there end access the webpage and then send you a filtered or streamed version of it.


    As for those suggestions to use Atomic Browser, it most likely will not work. It can fake the website into thinking its a different browser but if the website is useing something thats not supported in safari it wont work. Example: tricking a site into thinking you have firefox wont make flash on a page start working.

    I looked in apps and looks like cloud browse is not available for the iPad, just iPod or iPhone.. I would like to use CB so I can see Vids w/flash!

    It sounds like the website might use an ActiveX control, in which case you're out off luck.

    Have you asked the IT folks at work?

    I guess you could use LogMeIn or another remote desktop application to access your home computer, until you can find a solution that runs direct from the iPad.

    Just a thought....

    Thanks for this tip. I downloaded it; and after trying, you cannot get me to go back to Safari.

    Amen to that. After reading the comments about Atomic, I broke my #1 rule and actually paid for an app!!! Gotta be the best 99¢ I have spent... lately!

    Thanks for all the replies. I think ActiveX may be the problem. I tried opera mini with no luck. Will give Atomic a try just due to all the suggestions. Love all the help. Keep it coming.

    If you use atomic, do you have to identify as Safari iPad for sites written in HTML5 for the iPad to work?

    It's annoying that I set atomic browser to the gray safari theme and every time I start it up it takes a second to change from the default black theme...
