iCab Mobile is a web browser for the iOS. It provides many unique and useful features you won't find in other iPhone browsers.

The Watch App is a remote control for iCab Mobile, so you can navigate, zoom, scroll, open bookmarks, links, the homepage, switch tabs or sitch on/off the fullscreen mode. it is also possible to let iCab read a web site using speech output.

iCab Mobile can upload any files on web pages, like uploading photos on or Due to limitations of the iOS this does not everywhere, but it works fine on many web sites.

iCab Mobile comes with several default search engines you can choose from. You can easily add new search engines. Search suggestions from google and yahoo can be activated on the iPad. It's also possible to search within a web page.

iCab Mobile can save web forms and restore the form content later (manually or automatically). The saved forms data can be password protected.

There's a built-in and customizable URL-based filter. The default filters block many advertising banners. You can edit, add or remove filters. It's possible to switch off images to save bandwidth.

iCab Mobile supports Tabs, so you can open multiple web pages at the same time. Links can be opened in Tabs (in the foreground or background) manually or automatically. iCab can save the tabs when quitting so these can be loaded even when being offline, the next time the App is launched.

great app for download background

Tremendously useful, the best app I've ever bought for iOS

This is my everyday, all-purpose browser. I've been using it since 2010, first on an iPod touch 2, then later a first gen iPad, and through various iterations of the os, my devices, and iCab, I've watched a fantastically fully featured browser move closer and closer to perfection over the years. There are so many tiny niceties available in iCab that one would be hard pressed to exhaust them all. But my favorites? Being able to download to its own sandbox, even pictures and video, unless I choose to send them to device album. Quick browser I'd switching, so if the dog or even iso that I need to get to another machine won't download if it thinks I'm using the iPad version of safari I just change the id to the desktop version (or tell it to report that I'm using Firefox for windows, or whatever, if need be). Ad many forums sell themselves out to ad networks that want to highlight keywords and show a pop up. Certain content mills are notoriously riddled with ads and tracking networks that one would be crazy to browse them with a regular browser (indeed, one might find that sites you'd given up on using your iPad or phone are fine if you let iCab always tell them you're using a desktop browser...and yes, you can set that on a site by site case in the preferences). Multiple profiles and kiosk mode let me painless allow a friend to browse or keep business sites and accounts separate from my daily use. And everything is available to be backed up to Dropbox or a number of other services. And modules! View source? Display all images? Firebug lite? In page search? Truly you have to pity the barbarians who aren't using such a useful browser.

All that plus active development by someone who is honestly interested in creating a powerful browser, iCab has been around since Mac OS 9, You're using pedigreed but never legacy code when you're using this browser. If you've felt restricted browsing the web with your iPhone or iPad, felt a need to grab a laptop or go to a desktop just to get one niggling thing done, try this. You'll probably find that you can do it--for whatever value of it is--with iCab.
