    Which most likely uses Webkit. Which is alright. IRCHon also has it's own built in Web Browser.

    what?

    anyway, thanks for the links. Good to see other browsing options out there. Even mobile safari could use a 'toggle' like that Tabbed Browser app uses for opening up links in a new tab.

    WebKit is HTML/JS interpreter open source lib used by safari and lot of other *nix browsers :> Using WebKit as browser core mean it's practically.... the same browser

    This really isn't a big deal until we see one of the big three browsers in there. Like was said above these are all webkit based which means they're basically the same browser. In reality all of the new browsers in the app store have less useful features than Safari.
