The next version is now available on iTunes.   Highlights include   the addition of Autofill,  a Screen Dimmer for the iPad and improved multitasking behavior.

Websense.com came up with a creative solution to help limit the PDF security flaw using Atomic Browser.   If you are concerned about the exploit,  create an Ad Filter to block all PDFs.

Directions:

  1. Click the settings gear icon
  2. Click “Settings”
  3. Click “Ad Block Settings” and then “Edit Ad Block”.
  4. Click “New Filter” and then enter: *.pdf
  5. Click “Done” and “Save”.
  6. Click “Ad Block” at the top-left corner  to go back to the main screen.
  7. Click on the “Enable Ad Block” switch to turn it on.

This will work while you use Atomic Browser.  However, you still need to be careful of links from applications which automatically launch Safari (Mail, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, etc)

The essential web browser that should be on every iPad is Atomic Web Browser. It has the best user interface, the best feature set, and the best speed of the browsers tested. Atomic does a great job at making sure the user has many options to suit their needs; some highlight features include passcode lock, color themes, privacy mode, ad blocker, customized multitouch controls, full screen mode, desktop web page rendering, turn images off to conserve data usage, and many more. The reason why Atomic Web wins over other third party solutions is the great feature set and the ability to easy access that feature set. (Reviewed at version 3.0)
