    Question Whats the best iphone browser?
    I'm trying to watch movies from (well let's just say, certain sites), and with the default safari browser it would seem that many sites/videos can not be loaded. So I looked online regarding getting a different iphone browser to do this. Unfortunatly (just like in the bing.com commercials), it seems as though there are many choices, in fact tooooooooooooooooooooooo many. I want to make the right choice.

    I do not want a complicated browser, and I do not want a media converter. I just want a new browser that I can get to my 3gs 3.1.3 05.12.01 phone. And I've heard about one that I think is interesting. But is it the best for what I'm looking for? It is skyfire.

    And also does the new opera do the same thing that I'm looking for? I would assume that it would, because what's the point of being a new browser to replace the old ones, if it doesn't atleastplay all types of media?

    So should I get Skyfire or opera or what? I've also heard of perfect browser but does it do what I'm looking for? Just need something that is fast, and loads fast, and lets me play all types of media, and load all types of sites. Thank you.

    Sincerely, overwelmed by too many choices, guy.

    I personally like PerfectBrowser, it's my first replacement for Safari. It does all you need, tabs, full screen mode, allows you to download files and it also has the ablility to render the web page liks Internet Explorer or Firefox.

    If theres a better browser I would like to know about it though.

    1. Opera is one of the best browsers out there
    2. There is no browser that will allow Flash .. Thank Apple for that
    3. Somehow Apple rules the world cause A LOT of sites are going away from flash, so websites will be able to be viewed on the iPhone.

    360 Web Browser [Made by us ] isn't bad either [We think]:

    It has Firefox Sync, Plugins, Download Manager, Semi-Flash among a huge feature list (atleast we think so)... oh and it supports File Sharing too among various other features

    360 is great I use it for MediaMP4.com but I use SkyFire that is pretty damn sweet it processes flash videos (with the help of Frash) give it a look.

    I tried iphone explorer and ifunbox and diskaid but i find that diskaid was the best.
    With iphone explorer it really lagged everytime i opened and folder and it wouldnt let me drag and drop themes directly to show on winterboard if your only jailbroken. You need to UNLOCK+JAILBREAK in order to drag and drop themes. But with diskaid u can just drop and drag. So i prefer diskaid since its a big more controlling.

    Thanks
