Scott iCab also allows you to change the user client in it's settings.
Mine's firefox, as I hate being pushed to mobile pages when using the iPad.

The other thing that really bothers me about the way Apple treats 3rd party browser developers is the warning that comes attached to them --

There is no such warning associated with Safari and I can view the exact same types of content on Safari as I can any other bowser, but yet Apple makes it seem like these things will somehow appear on my iPad without my knowledge or consent if I use any other browser than Safari. I have a bad feeling this is just the first bit of bad news for 3rd party browser developers.

I went looking for alternative browsers because of this thread and discovered Perfect Browser. Loving it.
Thanks for this thread. I Google searched private API , still have no clue what it's talking about vs public

I was just about to buy Icab. Well, $2 as you say.

Edit: I did buy it and do like it. I have Atomic but not on my Ipad at present o likely gone unless the developer meets the guidelines. I alo have Skyfire and its pretty good for Flash but I don't use it daily.

Where would they put the warning, if they were inclined? You can't buy mobile Safari.

I suppose the warning could pop up the first time you run Safari, sort of like the "It appears you are jailbroken" warning I got the first time I ran Flipboard.

I apologize for sounding "dismissive", but purchasing apps has always pretty much been Caveat Emptor or Buyer Beware!

Err, no, every time people mention the mafia-style tactics of the App Store we've heard it's because Apple is trying to help and protect their consumers from low-quality apps and potential scammers. We lose a buck each and it's no big deal, but if they didnt get their 33 cents already it'd be a federal case. And unlike Steve, I ain't no billionaire.

Atomic web browser still wrks fine. Icab is my new fav though! Blows safari away on speed and ease of use. It has a very in-depth settings also.
