Best browser for the iPad!
Hands down the best browser for literally everything. I especially love it for tabbed browsing as I typically have 4 or 5 tabs open at a time that I'm constantly switching between for comparisons. With the user defined gestures I can make switching between them as specified and simple as I would like. The whole browser is practically customizable, both aesthetically and interactively. It's not just an alternative to Safari for me, it's a complete replacement (and best of all it's only $0.99)!
Not fully integrated
This app attempts to bring a Windows look and feel to an iOS environment. As a result, it has trouble dealing with memory. Every time I use this browser, it alerts there is not enough memory and advises me to close unused tabs, even when no other tabs are open.
In addition, Mercury is not available as a selection when prompted to open links from other apps, like Google search. Moreover, Apple's Keychain is not used.
However, Mercury has an impressive look and is easy to use. I especially like its full-screen operability.
Great browser!... almost.
This really is (almost) the best browser for iOS. It has many of the same features that Opera for Windows had at its peak, when Opera truly was the best of all, before it became junk. The only issues I have are (1) the memory- it crashes now more than ever, and (2) the poor implementation of speed dial. Those icons really shouldn't have to reload every time that page is viewed. The free version of Mercury doesn't do that- so why does the paid one?
