Th
is application is fast, and you can’t beat the price. When you first open it, you see all your open pages in squares on the main page, which developers call "speed dial” because it looks like a phone’s keypad, so it’s easy to navigate.


Mercury Browser (free or 99 cents, iLegend Soft). I tried the free version. It allows you to have tabbed browsing, and like Opera, the pages load quickly. There’s also a "private browsing” option.


Perfect Browser 4 (99 cents, Ingenious Creations). This one has the potential to become my favorite. You can lock the browser in landscape or vertical mode, and you can hide the settings and the website menu, so you get a full-screen view. An option lets you scroll up and down pages quickly without having to swipe a little at a time.

I may stick with Safari for certain tasks because it’s familiar, but it’s nice to have more options.
