An excellent browser
Mercury has lots of features, most of which I have not had need of or tried. Overall however, in routine day to day use, it is one of the best browsers for both iPhone and iPad. Its reader and bookmark functions are particularly good, and its user interface is excellent. the current version, however, has a small bug: when open pages are set for icon view rather than classic (tab) view in settings, the icons white out between sessions and you have to view each one in turn to find out what it is. Using tabs is the workaround, but I'm sure Mercury will fix this in its next patch.
Best intuitive and designed browser
I downloaded this while driving because safari was having trouble loading an important webpage that I had to read at the moment for work. I am pleasantly surprised by how blazing fast and elegant this browser is. It is much more intuitive for than safari and chrome, and since I have put it as my main browser on my phone and ipads. Give it a try!
Very very very good
This web browser is among the best in the App Store if not the best out of all the browsers. The app has a very powerful Adblock, that makes web browsing a better experience than by using safari with no ad block. It has a very eye candy User Interface that is a joy to start it up and use it. I just really love this web browser and I can't see myself without it. I highly recommend it to everyone.
