My number one desired feature in any mobile device app, especially a browser, is a YES to this question–Can I share and/or curate content easily via various social media tools?
…there is no way to change iOS’s default browser. While you can use any browser you want for your basic browsing needs, you can’t set it as the default browser. That means that home screen bookmarks as well as links in emails, SMS messages, and in other apps will only open in Safari…Most iOS users default to Safari because doing otherwise is too difficult.

If you’re looking for a browser that will empower your sharing–including to content curation sites like Pinterest, Evernote–you’ll want to take a long hard-look at Apollo Browser+Add Ons. After doing the comparison, it dethrones iCab Mobile Browser on my iPad as the best sharing tool…and Apollo is no-cost. For Diigo fanatics, you’ll probably be satisfied with Diigo Browser (although Diigo prob wants you to buy Readict) which has some nice features.
