Fastest browser to date
Over the last two years since I purchased my iPad 3, I tried many browsers from the Apple App Store. Safari, Atomic, Google Chrome, Dolphin and many others, each have there pros and cons. But when I need to google information quickly, I found Mercury to be the snappiest browser of them all. While the other browsers get bogged down and laggy, Mercury remains more responsive to my input longer and more often than the other popular browsers in the App Store. It's not a replacement for these other websites since certain web pages with security features don't always render correctly, but it is a great companion browser to Chrome and Safari.
This app needs few more customization options.
Icab browser and atomic are a little better due to the following.
You cannot edit the tool bar in non-full screen mode like you can in full screen mode. Seems odd.
You also cannot set the opacity of the fullscreen mode buttons.
Fix those and you will have the best browser on the app store and have some parity as options are concerned with icab. Icab beats all as far as options. But mercury is better at rendering pages.
Atomic has not been updated in almost two years!
But still had more customization options than mercury!
I love mercury. Renders pages the best. But lack of options are holding it back.
Best Browser I've ever Used on my iPad
I wasn't satisfied with Safari, tried Chrome, Opera, etc. and never really found a browser which works well on the iPad (although I use Opera on my Mac), until someone told me about Mercury. It works fantastic (I even use it now on my iPhone). Plus I can use Mercury Connect to share my bookmarks. I am very satisfied with Mercury. Keep up the good work guys!
