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 (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.

iCab Mobile can save web forms and restore the form content later (manually or automatically). The saved forms data can be password protected. Supports many third-party Password Manager Apps as well.

There’s a built-in fully customizable filter feature. It allows to block resources, ads, banners, user tracking scripts, cookies etc. Supports AdBlock Plus/EasyList filters as well.

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.

Bookmarks can be organized in folders. You can import/export the bookmarks from/to your PC/Mac browser.

iCab Mobile provides a fullscreen mode where the whole screen is used to display the web page. No screen space is wasted for toolbars.

iCab Mobile has a built-in Download Manager so you can download almost all files from the internet. The downloads can be easily transfered to a Mac/PC/Linux computer but also to other Apps on the device which can open these files

You can create multiple user accounts, each user has its own private bookmarks, filters, settings, etc.

iCab Mobile supports Dropbox. Export/Import bookmarks; transfer downloads, images, files, web pages to your Dropbox account.

In this mode, you can have two browsers side by side on the iPad. This is especially useful on the large iPad Pro.

The App is also accessible for visually impaired and blind users. If VoiceOver is enabled, the App plays soft ticks while a page is loading, so blind users are able to identify when the page load has finished.

The App includes a store providing several InApp purchases. These are meant as a tip jar. The InApp purchases are available for different prices, so you can pick the amount for the tip yourself. Doing so will unlock a few cool features as a reward, these are always the same, regardless of the amount of the tip. Users who have purchased the App within the last 12 months do get all these features for free, no need to buy one of the InApp purchases. Though they can nevertheless give me a tip, if they want to... ;-)

The Most Complete ios Web Browser

Review update,Jun/2018
Still the best browser at all time.
Recent Review
I don't usually write reviews, but When it comes to Icab mobile, I feel it's a duty to write it and let the whole apple family knows about this wonderful piece of software.
I wish there was a way to nominate a third party software, for adding it to IOS permanently.
You guys, whoever you are, deserve a reward by Apple for writing such a complete browsing software, even better than Safari 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Let me tell you something. If you are one of those who expect the software to customise itself, reading your mind trough the front camera, than don't buy this App.
However if you can spend sometime and get to the setting in the App, try everything and get to know it, Trust me,, you will love it. Its the most complete iOS web browser, the best of best with anything you would love to have, a clean and equal desktop experience + having the ability to upload files to wherever you want and leave no tracks for sniffer companies, not even the google.
And these few things were just an example that I believe everyone love to have on Iphone.
I should add that I have been using it for over a year, almost two, and it never, never, ever let me down.

Simply the best

I have tried many iOS browsers and nothing, and I mean nothing, is as good as iCab in my opinion. The author of the App is always quick to answer any queries and is very helpful. There are just too many great features to list them all.

All I can say is, buy this App it is one of the greats. If I could give it a rating of 100 I would!

A very good browser

This web browser is good and easy to use from the start. It also offers many features and possible customisation that you discover as you use it. Possibly the best browser for iOS.
