Maven

I was using Terra browser until I came across Maven. Maven has unlimited tabs, dual window mode, it stores passwords (optional), and has a really nifty on-screen trackpad so you can scroll just by holding your thumb down. It also has a thumb-dial for adjusting brightness and selecting bookmarks. I love the "reader" view for web pages that don't format well on the iPad. It re-formats the page in a more readable format. It also has a font size setting, which helps a lot on some pages. Maven feels more like a browser designed specifically for touch screens, rather than just being a small-screen adaptation of a desktop browser.
