iCab Mobile (Web Browser)

By Alexander Clauss

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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 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... ;-)

What's New in Version 9.7

- Now, iCab is able to warn the user when visiting web sites which contain malware or try to steal personal data (phishing). This feature uses the "Google Safe Browsing" service and can be enabled in the "Services" settings. This feature works by regularly loading and updating a database from google's server which contains the information about malware and phishing sites. All the checks for malicious web sites are done on the device itself, so your browsing activity is not exposed to a third party.

- In the Download Manager it is possible to save multiple pictures at once in the photo album. Use the "Edit" mode to select multiple files.

- There's a new menu item "Download (Rename file)" available for the contextual menu of a link, which will prompt the user to enter file name that should be used for the file before it is dowloaded. This download option ignores the file name that is suggested by the web page and will use the one that is provided by the user. The standard "Download" item is still available and will just use the file name that is suggested by the web page.

- In the contextual menu for a file of the download manager there's a new item "Information". This option shows some additional information about a file: name, size, download date, server date and several hash values (MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256). The hash values do allow to check if the file is valid, in case the web page provides the correct hash values for comparison

- Adds a module for "LinkLocker"

- Fixes an issue with the twin browser where it could happen when selecting an entry from the suggestions from the address field that the page would open in the wrong twin browser

- In private mode the address field will be have a red border to avoid conflicts with the green background for "https" sites

- Fixes a crash when long-pressing an item in the search history

- The Translation modul will now support some new destination languages (See the module settings)

- Fixes an issue with detecting the correct text encoding an a few sites

- Fixes an issue where it could happen that sometimes temporary files from background downloads were not deleted

- Includes several additional small bug fixes and improvements

Customer Reviews

Advertisers HATE this browser

Download media from any site (including that big one Google owns) without any shady extensions. Filter out every ad and tracker with a good hosts file/filter list (Fanboy and Steven Black are good starts). iCab is so powerful it not only makes Safari look like child's play and Chrome look like Atari, but Firefox on desktop feels weak by comparison. Buy it, then buy it again every month to support this rare developer who actually cares about the internet.

My favorite browser

This is a great app. It has a clean interface and is very powerful and customizable. I had a problem with importing items into Apple Wallet and the app developer was very responsive. He responded within hours with detailed instructions on how to adjust the settings to fix my problem. I am very happy with this app, and currently use it as my default browser.

Need A More Powerful Browser?

Killer Features: The frequently updated iCab Mobile can upload and download any kind of website, unlike Mobile Safari. iCab Mobile can also pretend to be virtually any web browser by changing the browser string.

And those are just two of its many features. This is an essential app for power users.
