UPDATE-RESOLVED: Mercury Connect is Broken
This has been my favorite browser -- first started using it because it allowed me to sync my bookmarks with Firefox. Then when I moved to Chrome I could still sync. Still love the various features better than any other browser I've found, but since the introduction of Mercury Connect syncing no longer works. My bookmarks have not synced since last October. It SAID I was logged and and it was syncing, but didn't. I just logged out of my Google account and logged in again to see if that would help and all I'm getting is a busy icon on the Mercury Connect screen that has been going on a long time. PLEASE fix this. Would be 5 stars is this was working. 2/7/14 UPDATE: this feature still broken after recent 8.3 update.
UPDATE #2: I have updated my rating to 5 star as I found the syncing problem. It works fine if you do it right, Unfortunately I never saw instructions that explained sufficiently. I use Google to sync and assumed it worked the same as Chrome. But it reuires a Google+ profile -- each time I signed in it would take me to the page to complete my profile, which I ignored as I did not particularly want a Google+ profile. But once I did completed the profile, giving Mercury Connect permission to use my email address, syncing started and happened almost immediately. It's working fine now.
Best iPad Browser Iv'e Ever Used
The Mercury Web browser is by far the best web browser iv'e used so far. It has many advantages that other web browsers simply don't have, such as a User Agent that allows you to select which website version you want (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Mac Safari, iPhone Safari, etc...) for websites which force you to view certain pages in a specific format. This feature works flawlessly, as far as iv'e used it, and is very useful. This web browser is fast. It's faster then any web browser iv'e ever used on my iPad, and further options like image blocking and page compression is possible making loading even faster.
This web browser is loaded with features, and I can say without hesitation that this was the best buck iv'e ever spent on the App Store.
2 things that need changing please
First off this browser is amazing and the best in the App Store hands down. It is fast and the ability to change the browser style in "User Agent" is awesome! However two things that need help: 1)Please make a way to disable auto reloading of pages, it's just so random and if you're working on something in one tab and have something typed in another it'll randomly refresh and you'll have to start over. Same idea with app switching.
2) please make a copy function for pictures that when you hold on it not only adds it to your photos but gives the option to copy the link behind the photo. Safari has always had this and it's a basic function.
Keep up the good work!
