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 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... ;-)

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.


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.

weitaus besser als Safari - kaufen!

Meinen Respekt an die oder den Programmierer. Dies ist der beste Browser den ich je benutzt habe. Besser als Safari, Chrome, Firefox etc. zuerst fühlt man sich von den mannigfaltigen Einstellungen überfordert. Aber bereits nach kurzer Zeit hat man alles im Griff. Auch Downloads funktionieren wunderbar. Dieser Browser gehört zu den grundlegenden Apps die sich jeder installieren sollte. Und auch der Support hat fünf Sterne verdient. Ich habe den Kauf nicht bereut und würde ihn sofort wieder kaufen. 5 Sterne App!!!
