iCab Mobile (Web Browser)

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

APPLE WATCH:
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.

FILE UPLOADS:
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).

SEARCHING:
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.

FILTERS:
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.

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

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

DOWNLOADS:
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

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

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

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

VOICEOVER
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

- Because iOS 13 introduces new system-wide three finger gestures for copy & paste operations and these system gestures are even active when nothing can be copied or pasted, iCab's own 3-finger gestures could no longer be used. Now, if the user has configured 3-finger gestures in iCab Mobile for certain actions iCab disables the system gestures as long as the keyboard is closed. So iCab's own 3-finger gestures can be used again, and while the keyboard is open the system gestures are activated again and can be used for copy & paste operations as well.

- The preview for the contextual menu can be now configured separately for links in web sites and bookmarks. A new bug in iOS 13.4 has the result that no text can be selected on web sites anymore when using the "modern" web engine and if the preview for the contextual menu for links is switched off. As a workaround for this iOS bug you should enable the preview for the contextual menu. But because you might not want to have the previews enabled for bookmarks as well, you can configure this separately.

- There's a new option in the "Privacy" settings where you can configure what to do when loading a resource with an untrusted certificate. iCab Mobile can either ask what to do (block temporarily or forever, allow temporarily or forever), or if the resource should be blocked right away (without any alert box asking what to do).

- The screenshot feature (in the settings under "Tools") provides a new option where iCab Mobile can ask each time if you want to create a screenshot of the whole page or only the visible area.
