Excellent find. I've been looking for a browser that can play the BBCs iPlayer full screen. Safari retains a bar across the top of the screen while iCab and Atomic both fail to load the streaming media. A1 works perfectly.

I've been using it since last night and like it. The touch and hold to open tabs is much more reliable than Atomic Browser and I like the look better. Have had it crash on me a couple times but both crashes were while doing the same thing.....backspacing in the URL line, so I've learned to avoid that! Other than that, I'm pleased, and it works well with the forum. Some others don't.

Well I read every single new app released for the iPad on a daily basis. Kind of sad, actually.

I've been using icabmobile which also supports real tabs. One feature I really like about icabmobile is that it can download any type of file. You can then transfer downloaded files to apps that support them, or access them through iTunes file share. For example, there is an icabmobile module that you can add on that will allow you to download youtube videos. I downloaded a youtube vid and sent it over to Goodreader to watch it (suprised Goodreader could view videos... probably just uses the Apple video app).

I like this, yes I could not resist.... But 2 issues...

One is I could not post from it on this forum. I signed in fine, but the actual text box for the post was grayed, and the keyboard would not come up.... Weird....

Two is there seems to be no way to import bookmarks. I have a bookmarks tool bar that I keep the same on all my computers, and it would be a major job to manually enter in all the websites. Yes, about 150 or so......

I like the way it formats, I like the scroll, I like the find function.....etc..... But I have to be able to post (much to the pain of some) and really need my collection of bookmarks...

I just realized... It has no bookmarks toolbar...... I would never had bought it if I had known..... For me until it gets my three issues taken care of, it's a fail.....

But, I bet there will be updates. :)

@Bremen, Perfect browser is perfect after all. To post to forums, open bookmarks and tap the vB button on the button. Click preview in the forum after you are done. Voilà. I have posted this using "vBulletin forum helper". Doesnt work if you use a new line/ return. New to forum btw!

And welcome to you! I will test what you say, but why do I need to take those extra steps? Hardly "perfect" if that's the case. Trash Safari all you want (and I wish for something more), but it posts normally, has bookmark toolbars, and can import bookmarks from other browsers....

Tried it, sure, it can work....

But way to many steps to do a simple task like post to this forum.....

So it is Safari for me, but I hope Atomic or Perfect will grow and one of them steal my heart away....:)
