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.
FILLING OUT FORMS:
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... ;-)
What's New in Version 9.8.7

- Fixes an issue with videos on vimeo.com, which did not play on the iPhone.
- Fixes another bug for the Quickstarter icons
Best Custom Browser!
I have used many browsers. Most seem to stop updating their app after a year and it breaks. This browser application is very full featured and the developer updates constantly over many years and is responsive. Developer Seems to actually love his creation. 5 stars!
My favorite features are Custom Gestures, ad blocking, modules/add-ons, and customizable full screen mode and transparencies!
Don't be hesitant to pay $1.99 for this app because you are used to free browsers :) it is a very robust mobile browser worth every penny.edit now mid 2017 still 5 stars!
It does (almost) everything except cook dinner...
Mr. Clauss does not include everything this excellent app does in his description. It syncs with Firefox. It slices. It dices... Well, maybe not that...
In addition to the vast list of features that show up directly in the UI, in the Modules menu we have:
• Evernote clipping.
• Capture to PDF
• Sound and video clip capture
and many others. The ability to upload ANYTHING to a web page is by itself worth the purchase price.
Ok, it doesn't do Flash. And I can't convince much of anything to make iCab the default browser. But -- I've been using iCab for years now. Support is superb. If there's a bug, just send an email and it will be addressed. iCab is a vital part of my workflow, and I heartily recommend it.
Excellent Browser with Many Advanced Features
You can do uploads, downloads, file sharing across iOS, read clean add-free pages, and much much more.
Easy to use, yet powerful and complex if you want it to be.
My compliments to the brilliant developers for all the countless ongoing improvements!
