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 9.9.2
Fixes a crash when tapping on the address field under iOS 9 and older. When using iOS 10 or newer, this update is not needed.
unrivaled browser + attentive developer
This is possibly the only app I don't regret buying. It is superior to desktop browsers, with advanced features that allows complete personalization (appearance, toolbars, modules, downloads, and more). It also provides the user with total control of their data with customizable URL/cookie/CSS filters, agent spoofers, time limits, and local memory clearance. *Also bluetooth keyboard users can set keys for actions, I wish a writing app could provide that!* Lastly after a problematic update I emailed the developers and they responded (in less than 2 hours) with a trick to get around the issue until a new update was available. They even emailed me afterwards to let me know it had been fixed! Thank you for the great app (please make a document one :)
Latest bug fix is excellent
While I had originally given a poor review for a previous update, the developer has taken care of that in an outstanding time fame. The browser is working perfectly. I have used this web browser for years and it has been the easiest and most useful of most any web browser I have had in the past. It is easy to find most anything you want to setup. I would certainly recommend this for anyone wanting a more efficient web browser.
App finally fixed. Still that's a "never happen" type of bug.
I really like this browser, but having a bug where you can't type in the web address is just plain ignorant, bordering on negligent. I am glad the dev is responsive, but the bad version should have been pulled immediately rather than Shanghaiing everyone who was broke until Apple approved a patched version.
I'm glad I save my IPAs so I can rollback but some serious QA needs to happen to a PAID app. It should at least be tested a tiny bit?
The new version also wiped all my filters, cookie settings and such. Not what I'm used to from this app at all.
