iPad web browsing – any advice?

A while back, I wrote that iCab mobile was one of the best browsers on iOS – and it was. It isn’t any more. I don’t know if it’s iCab or iOS, both of which have been updated since I first started using it, but it’s become borderline unusable: desperately slow, refusing to let me enter text into some sites’ form fields, crashing very frequently and so on. Anyone know why, or know of a decent alternative I can use until iOS 5 turns up? I’ve tried Opera and a few others, but sites such as Facebook think they’re phone browsers and bounce me to the crappy mobile versions of their pages.

Atomic’s OK, although they all use the same underlying engine anyway (bar Opera, which is more a rendering device than a true web browser).

I’m pretty sure Atomic suffers from the user agent problem for mobile sites, but I’ll go check. Ta.
