The 3 Best Browser Alternatives for the iPad

One of the things I hate most in the world is a default browser on a high end electronic. In fact, I usually dislike anything that comes standard, especially when it comes to Apple products. When I bought my iPad, I found a lot of the software to be slow, unnecessarily large, and frustrating to use. Half the time it was so buggy that I couldn’t use it at all.

Luckily, there are a multitude of alternative programs that have been created to work with the iPad. Several of these I have tried, as I prefer to test out software for myself before settling on one. Sometimes I keep more than one and use them when I feel like it. Out of every browser I tried for the iPad, there were three that really stuck out. All of them are free to use, easy to download, and will save you a lot of time.
