    Me as well, immensely faster. Love the tabs. Only problem for me is that since it cannot import Safari bookmarks I'd like to see it integrate with delicious..... infact that would be better than bookmark importing.

    it is crazy that they mention on the app description page - "You must be at least 17 years of age to download this game."

    Check it out it is right underneath the free app and description on the left side...

    it does have a nice suggestive text format in it's url bar though. it got modmyi right off with 4 letters. Very cool.

    Apple has not updated it on all servers yet. I was just able to download it now. Just wait a few minutes.

    You can still do more with the Safari browser. The tab browsing and quick visual bookmarks (nine from what I can tell) are nice. It loads fast on first boot up and then lags to a crawl even on a wifi broadband connection. Took about one and a half minutes to load apple.com (my second site visited using it) and then around four minutes to load rottentomatoes.com (my third site visited). It loaded modmyi.com very fast which was the first site I tried.

    Still a slow experience compared to Safari. It also crashed while loading rottentomatoes and toucharcade (the only two sites I tried to load simultaneously).

    Seems to cache sites (can't find a setting to delete cache) and appears to load them faster after first attempt. This time rottentomatoes loaded in about one minute give or take a few seconds.

    Pinch to zoom is a little slow in rendering. Looks like copy and paste of text is there. Doesn't appear that you can save images though, within this browser.

    Options bar: Find text within a page, bookmarks list (and visual bookmarks on each tab that doesn't have loaded content within), close tab button, go back, go forward, and add bookmark to your bookmarks list.

    I installed version two and it doesn't look like landscape viewing is available. Seems nice for viewing multiple pages at times but you still need Safari as an everyday browser.

    Saving past session tabs and opening pages inside safari or sending links via sms/mail is needed. Saving photos to albums would also be nice, not sure though what Apple would allow for a minimal browser inside the app store. Still needs work but might get a space on my springboard if it is updated to include some of the things I've mentioned above. Plus it needs to be more stable.

    About the landscape mode. You have to go into the settings app and scroll down until you see the idroid icon, tap it and it will give you the settings. Landscape mode by default says it is on, but you must turn it off then back on to make it work. Hope it helps.

    Up for sharing...was wondering why landscape mode was gone after my update.

    Thanks~

    Just got this and it's great, it just works...much prefer it to safari, though wish it had the option to make it the default browser, so I never have to use safari again.

    Also, I think the ability to customize the settings would be great...security, privacy etc...will set it apart from the rest

    @ Stealth - Try the new update 2.0...it's much better.

    No landscape for me - enabled in settings but just doesn't work

    Scrub that last comment- I disabled and re- enabled it in settings and landscape is working- I actually quite like this now!

    2.0 is an improvement but still isn't as smooth as it should be. It needs the "2 finger swipe" feature when in landscape so you can go back and forward a page with the swipe of two fingers like on MBP's. Saying that, Safari doesn't have that either

    Someone needs to figure out how to make it the default web browser on the iPhone.
