I view this site on my iPad 99% of the time.

Most often I use the Google browser app. Although I do use Apples Safari at times.

Just today we were seeking a solution for my Wife who needs to watch some work related training videos and NOTHING was able to play them!

Not Apple, not Android, not Google and not Microsoft.

I did some searching and stumbled onto a link speaking positively about the browser Puffin and it being able to support video..... in the paid version.

I had to pay $4.99 for the browser in the App Store not knowing if it would work or not ...... and I'm pleased to report it does support her video.

I thought, oh heck I installed it, I'm going to try some surfing with it Google has been so Slow lately.

Holy Crap!
It is fast! Like I bought a new computer fast!

At this early stage...... nothing but praise from me.

Dave

Might give this thing a shot, as I am currently experiencing the same difficulties with my normal browsers.

Chrome works best on Android.

Anybody have a browser recommendation for iOS 9? I have an old iPad with a nice big screen that used to be good for surfing, but now it's a bit of an orphan since Apple doesn't support the latest iOS on it.

there's this one called Dolphin Web Browser by MoboTap Inc.
The requirements for it on apple's website says it needs IOS 7 or later so it should work on your iPad.
I would approach this browser with caution though, I couldn't find a privacy policy so there's no knowing what there doing with your data.
I think this is a good reminder that the main advantage of using a mainstream browser like chrome or firefox is the support behind it, plus because a lot of people are using it more security audits/fixes are likely to be made to those browsers.
