Description

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. Since watchOS 6.2 you can also open web pages and browse the Web directly on the Apple Watch. But there are still limitations: there are no navigation buttons (back/forward) available.

FILE UPLOADS:
iCab Mobile can upload any files on web pages.

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.

OTHER FEATURE:
- Configurable multi-touch gestures
- QuickStarter feature
- AirPrint support
- Browser ID (UserAgent) is configurable
- iCab Mobile fully supports international domain names
- Cookie Manager

- When launching iCab can either open an empty page, the homepage or restore the Tabs which were open the last time
- There are different color schemes and designs
- Document Sharing lets you pass downloads and files to other Apps in the device



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

Version 10.6.7

- Since iOS 15 there's a new menu item available for the action menu, which allows to directly pause all media output (audio/video). This works on a global level, so you don't need to know which tab plays audio or video content. This menu item is also available in the contextual menu of the Tabs, so you don't need to add an additional item to the action menu.
- The user-defined Browser IDs can now have their own name which is used in the list of IDs in the settings. This allows to distinguish the IDs by name instead of by ID. If no name is given, the ID is listed.
- In the bookmarks window you can now sort bookmarks in "edit" mode. You can sort by name, URL, label and date
- In the "web site" settings there's a new option which allows to automatically redirect Youtube shorts to their "standard" youtube video page. This is useful if you prefer the full featured video player of "normal" youtube videos over the primitive video player of the "shorts".
- There are now complications available for the Apple Watch, so it's possible to lanuch the Watch App from within a watch face
- The default keyboard shortcut for „Close Tab“ has changed from Cmd-W to Cmd-Shift-W to avoid conflicts with a new shortcut of the Stage Manager on iPads. (Important: The shortcut will change automatically only if the user has not yet done any changes for the shortcuts).
- Bugfix: Fixes an issue with the auto-update feature of AdBlock Plus filters
- Bugfix: Saving web sites on WebDAV servers did not always work
- Bugfix: Searches done in private tabs will no longer added to the search history

Ein deutsches Produkt das unterstützt werden sollte

In den großen App-Ozean finden wir mit diesem Browser eine echte Alternative und Bereicherung für den Safari Browser. Nutze seit vielen Jahre Opera aber seit die Firma von Chinesischen Investoren aufgekauft wurde läuft dieser nicht gut.
Da bin ich zufällig auf iCab ein Entwickler aus Darmstadt gestoßen. Der Browser bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten und das für 2,29€. Man sollte die Leute die sich viel Mühe geben und so ein gutes Produkt mühselig am Leben erhalten unterstützen. Für gute Arbeit muss jemand auch gutes Geld bekommen . Nur so haben wir eine Chance
das auch langfristig fernuenftige App‘s angeboten werden ohne nachhaltige versteckte Absichten die von den großen am Markt uns angeblich kostenlos vorgesetzt werden.

Der Browser meiner Wahl

Da ich iCab Mobile nun schon seit vielen Jahren auf iPad und iPhone verwende, will ich mal wieder eine Bewertung abgeben. Für mich ist iCab Mobile der beste Browser im iOS-Universum. Es sind sehr viele Features eingebaut und er bietet umfangreiche Konfigurationsoptionen. Besonders gut gefallen mir die Möglichkeiten rund um‘s Downloaden von Dateien. Ich habe mir da einen webdav-Link eingerichtet, so dass ich heruntergeladene Dateien anschließend sofort in meine HiDrive-Cloud hochladen kann, wo sie mir dann auf allen Plattformen zur Verfügung steht.
Ich finde es auch bemerkenswert, dass dieser Browser über viele Jahre ständig aktuell gehalten und weiterentwickelt wird, herzlichen Dank dafür.

Autoscroll – Funktion Und andere Innovationen, Schweizer Taschenmesser

Ein großes Lob für das Schweizer Taschenmesser unter den Browsern. Funktionen und Einstellmöglichkeiten ohne Ende, viele mit Alleinstellungsmerkmal. Alleine die Autoscroll – Funktion (langsamer, schneller, Bildlauf anhalten) zum bequemen Lesen längerer Texte im Browser ist genial, kenne ich sonst nirgends. Viele Erweiterungsmodule, kann man gar nicht alle aufzählen. Eine absolute Empfehlung.

Verbesserungsvorschlag: Beim Abspeichern von Internetseiten im PDF –Format sollte man den Titel der Seite bearbeiten können. Bitte außerdem die Möglichkeit hinzufügen, Dokumente auch bei Google Drive oder anderswo in der Cloud ablegen zu können. (Geht bei Safari ja auch).

Empfehlenswert und innovativ, vielleicht kommt irgendwann auch ein etwas moderneres App – Symbol.
