  2. Thanks for the great update, the iPad version is working great and can’t live without it. I did notice somewhat of a bug in the iPhone version. When you hold down on a link and the “open in…” page shows up, the link will still be opened even if you press “open in background”. Kind of defeats the whole purpose of opening pages in a different tab. It’d be great if this can be corrected in the next update. Keep up the good work!

  3. Actually, did some more test and found out that this only happens in certain websites, it’d still be great if you guys can look into it.

  4. Hi Perfectblue, if you can give me a specific website that would be great.

  5. When I browse on the iPhone, I generally go to a site I already have bookmarked. Any chance of getting the bookmarks star in the bottom status bar and having a toggle for the URL/Search bar? This would give a little extra screen space when going to bookmarked sites.

    Great browser,

  6. Hi Allen, You can add a bookmark button in full screen mode which will be placed on the bottom. To do this goto settings->full screen options. Then click on one of the 7 full screen buttons to add a bookmark button.

  7. Why does the app reload all of the tabs when I reopen the app? This makes me afraid to even leave the app because I have to reload all of the pages.. Can you please put in a quick bug fix to make it so that it doesn’t reload everything every time you open up the app?

  8. Hi

    All functions are fine. But you have to do more to the design and finish

  9. Hello, I’m interested in buying you app, but does it work on my iTouch 1g v 3.1.2? Thanks

  10. Yes, it will work on any 3.x device. You can also try the lite version for free.

  11. @anon this is because there is no method to save the state of a webview. The reason Safari doesn’t reload the pages is because when you press the menu button, it stays running in the background. If you reboot the phone, you’ll notice it displays the same behavior. Once iPhone os 4.0 comes out with multitasking support, this issue will go away.

  12. It doesn’t look like I can edit Google docs on the iPad. This is true of mobile Safari, too, but I thought it was because it doesn’t support the contentEditable tag. This licks to be true of Atomic as well. Is this in fact the case? If so, what are the chances of getting support for contentEditable? This wd be a huge plus over Safari.
