A pretty “meh” browsing experience

There’s nothing great about safari, but there’s nothing terribly wrong either. The reader view is nice, but it likes to hide away from you when you load a website. There’s also a lack of extensions or any sort of ad blocker for Safari, which makes browsing some websites a pretty bad experience.
Overall, it’s alright. It gets the job done, and lets you access websites, but I just wish there was some sort of extension support and an easier way to get to reader view.

iOS 15 on iPad - Nothing I need, a lot I don’t want

I’m always suspicious of the 5 star reviews on any Apple app these days. I guess it’s possible there are real people who like all the new features in Safari iOS 15. I’m not one. I don’t need any of the changes to Safari and would really like to be able to option out of this redesign. Of course, this is Apple, so you can’t . Just like the terrible Apple Podcast app redesign in 2017, there is no going back. Apple doesn’t listen to the casual user. They only hear the people who want a million twitching screens and icons because of course they do, and screw the rest of us who just want a simple intuitive interface and design.
Hey Apple, your products are used by a variety of people. Most do not work in the tech industry. Please stop designing for elite tech heads - or if you must, please let the rest of us option out of all that useless garbage so we can just surf the web in peace. Give the end user the option to NOT engage the new features as many of us have no use for a lot of them. They twitch and dance and get ignored as best we can, but better if they could be turned off.

Tab groups is the best thing to have ever happened.

Tab groups has been an extremely useful feature for me as I found myself adding pages to my bookmarks and reading list far less frequently.

Safari brings the address bar down to the bottom half of your screen which makes the browser far more one-handed useable as it ever was before (provided you have long enough fingers to reach the other side of your screen while typing if you’re using a Pro phone). But the biggest advantage is the ability to create new tabs by just swiping which previously was a two tap action.

Even though the application is still a bit buggy here and there but nevertheless the features deliver as they promise. Safari is still in my opinion the best browser on iOS.
