    When it comes to perfomance and speed no browser is and shouldn't be faster than Safari, they can only be worse or equal at best. I believe you should specify in what scope you're comparing browsers in: best UI, most functions, most beatiful, Overally better (excluding perfomance and speed), etc.
     
  3. Firefox isn't on iOS, wish it was but is isn't.
    Anyways, my pick would be Chrome

    I don't know really while safari is quick it has trouble rendering more than 3 pages properly and crashes frequently,Opera and dolphin turned out to be just terrible with crashing every 5 minutes not to mention lag,Chrome was the inly good browser imo.It's weird because the sitaution is exact reverse on my android,chrome sucks but opera and dolphin are gold,Ucwebrowser is good on both ios and android,I'm not sure if it's my device but the performance of all browsers is far worse than it is on my android device(low end).

    I don't use it for browsing, but Photon is java-enabled, so I can play games on it, stream moveez; do all the lovely Java things.
     
  8. It's on Android only as it seems like Firefox won't be at the AppStore until Apple allow them to use their own browsing engine.

    I use Safari most of the time, but i´m quite happy with iCab mobile, too which
    let´s you download things via the browser. It has quite a lot of features.

    Just using Safari for work and it hasnt failed me yet to push me into getting a different browser. I also use it regularly to check my most visited websites daily. Never had any problems with it.

    I just use safari too, it does the job I need it too, it crashes occasionally but less than the others I've tried.

    You don't have the best browser for iOS even in your poll - easily the best is iCab Mobile. Tons of custom ability. Ability to simulate different platforms. Ability to download. Too numerous to count.

    iCab Mobile

    iCab Mobile is a web browser for the iPhone®, iPod Touch® and the iPad®. It provides many features which makes surfing in the web much easier.
    Here're some key features:

    With Tabs you can open multiple web pages at the same time
    Using the Download Manager you can download files directly on the device
    The Readability Support lets you sync a reading list between Apps and devices
    The Fullscreen Mode removes all the toolbars
    Filters can be used to block ads or other elements.
    The search feature can be extended, it's easy to add new search engines
    The Bookmarks from your Mac or PC browser can be imported.
    Forms can be saved and filled out automatically
