    I wish they knew they could make a better one for ios that isn't limited

    ..that's fishy if they are using two different phones. Also notice how one is jailbroken and unlocked compared to a phone that may not be jailbroken.

    Also if they are by te same creator why would he use two different phones? And if it's not the same creator the wifi speeds could be different

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    Really... Speed Test's need to be conducted from the same type of phone. This is rubbish.

    Wow..just downloaded for iOS 6. Got the new tag on it love that haha! Gonna give it a go and let you know. Ok ok i tried it..i like the animation but its a bit sluggish. I use Chrome on my MBP for work but use Safari on IOS and it will probably stay that way until this one speeds up :]

    Chrome is kinda slow, and theres no homepage by default. I'll stick to safari, I think. I now have high hopes for iOS Firefox.

    "Find on page" makes up for any shortcomings of the browser. Not being able to easily and intuitively search for text on a page in Safari a mere five years after its release is absurd.
    I know it took them forever to add it, but find in page has been a part of iOS since iOS 4. Type your search into the google search area then scroll down in the suggestions box and you will see an option to search the web page.

    I don't have video proof, but chrome appears to be slower to load pages than safari in some cases. BUT, I believe it uses some tricks like preloading the top suggestion before you hit go, and preloading your most accessed pages when idle. Sometimes I can get pages to l literally load instantly.

    What this finally proves to me is that browsers are shitty on iOS because of iOS, not because browser developers are idiots. Geez, why doesn't the DOJ pursue antitrust against apple.

    You can. It is also pretty easy in my opinion.

    Not really, since they're both on the same Wi-Fi network the cellular provider has no leverage on the loading speed.

    I think this too because when I first typed ModMyi.com in the address bar it showed the pop up for the ModMyi app without me pressing anything anything.

    Alternative is good but is there really need of another browser when Safari is so good by itself? Is it 'grass is always greener on the other side' or something else

    I'm enjoying the new browser, I like a lot of the features. I don't find it sluggish at all. Switching tabs is very simple.

    The app as a whole to me is much more responsive than Safari. Can't wait to get rid of my iPhone and get an Android or Windows Phone!
