    Okay, don’t get me wrong, I would really love Firefox, Opera, or Chrome, but aren’t all the new web browsers being allowed in the App Store being based off Mobile Safari? Meaning no new engine and probably the exact same speed as safari? So whats the point of all these crappy new browers? I mean think about it, its SAFARI! I highly loved and used browser for PC and Mac users. Would you download a crappy, no name dev, web browser for your desktop? Or would you just stick with Safari?

    honestly unless chrome or firefox mobile comes screw any other browser.. safari might be a tad different to use but eh ill stick with it. just like aim, why go buy some third party app when aim mobile works just fine? but then again im broke and dont like spending money. just my two cents

    Thats the thing... it wouldnt even use the Safari Engine...

    They would use a whole new engine.

    yeah, there really is no point to any other browser, whether it be Firefox, Opera, etc. Mobile Safari keeps improving with every software update, so another browser doesn't seem necessary
