Check this out: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ichromy-chrome-style-web-browser/id432838105?mt=8

It looks like a pretty durn good port of desktop Chrome for the iPad. Tabs are nice, as is Read Later. Worth the download time to see if you like it better than Safari.

Hmm, might give it a try. It's funny that team behind this advertises like "as fast as real Chrome" when this is just same old WebUIView Mobile Safari wrapped up in a new interface and actually is slower than Safari in 4.3 because faster JS engine isn't enabled for WebUIView. Currently I'm using Atomic Web as my main iPad browser and it works really well. My only gripe is that switching tabs causes page to load again but that's iPad 1 lack of memory issue and I don't think app can fix that.

It seems decent. Main thing I like is it launches fast unlike most others I have tried. Tabs are nice, single URL/search box is nice. But mostly it's just more of the same.

The main issue I have is that none of these browsers are added to the "open in..." dialog box of other apps.
