iPad version not as good as iPhone version--needs an update
Still no update. What's going on? Browser keeps crashing with more than 5 tabs open. Many UI improvements needed. App is dead without updates.
I have tried most iBrowsers and this one is definitely the best by a considerable margin on both the iPhone and iPad. Best is a relative concept however--that's not to say that MANY improvements are not needed. The latest iPad version (6.0.1) is behind the iPhone version. Scrolling is very unpleasant. It's choppy at best, even with no tabs open and all private data and cache purged. I am using this on the iPad Retina Display and I suspect it has not been updated to accommodate the extra pixels (twice as many). This seems to be a common problem. Another highly irritating problem is when I try to hold down on a link in Goggle to bring up the dialog that allows me to open the link in a new background tab, most of the times nothing happens. I have to hold down the link in different places and hope the dialog comes up. I often have to do this 5-10 times. Unacceptable. I rarely have to do it more than once on the iPhone version. I have written to the developers twice now about this and they never reply. The app hasn't been updated since Dec 8, 2011. That's a bad sign considering the problems people are having. I was hoping the app would evolve and at least APPROACH Firefox in functionality. This is not happening. Maybe someone will come up with a new improved iBrowser. Please?
Filter the junk
This app keeps me sane and for the moment is one of the few things preventing me from ditching iOS and Apple mobile devices altogether.
As a regular desktop user for years, I'm used to filtering out the spam ads and pop-ups that litter the web, which makes it really difficult to suddenly get inundated with that stuff on Safari with no way to filter it out. I don't want my ipad battery and mental sanity drained by video web ads that play without warning and endless Outbrain links to stories about the "one weird trick" that will solve every one of life's problems. I also don't like getting spammed with links to SEO-bait garbage when I'm reading legitimate news sources. I'm looking at you, HuffPo, Bleacher Report, Zergnet, Upworthy and all the other content mills that harass web users to click on your garbage content.
Atomic gives you the ability to filter most of that stuff out without crippling your ability to surf the web and see the content you want. It's not perfect, and it's not quite a desktop browsing experience, but it's the closest thing available on the ipad. For that reason, and for some stability issues that cause the browser to crash at seemingly random times, I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. I hope Atomic continues to improve, and as long as it does, I will be a supporter. Thanks for making web browsing on iOS tolerable.
Solution to app freezing on startup following recent update
To those who experience the issue that began after the last update where it begins to load on startup then freezes up and closes, I found a solution to the problem that worked for me. I found that the problem seems to have something to do with starting the browser when there were a bunch of tabs still open (I had around 15) from the last time it was used. It seems that all the tabs try to load or refresh at the same time and it's too much for it to process at on time so it just goes crazy and exits. I fixed it by first turning on airplane mode, then opening the browser, a couple seconds after opening it you see 1 or 2 "no connection" warning boxes pop up. Once they pop up the app stops trying to load all the other tabs and you can exit those boxes, turn off airplane mode then go to each tab and hit the refresh button on the address bar to load each tab individually. After doing this the first time it seems to fix the problem permanently and I can exit the browser and start it up normally, same tabs open as before, without going through these steps. Other than that minor glitch it's a pretty great browser.
