Safari App--Web Browsing on Your iPadsafari.png
  • Safari comes preloaded on all iPads


Description: Safari is the web browser that comes preloaded on your iPad. There are other web browsers available that you can experiment with later, but you will want to become familiar with Safari and the way that the web browser works on the iPad--it is a little different than what you routinely use on your laptop and their are differences in the way Safari works with the different iPad operating systems (iOS 4 & iOS 5)

    • Tab Browsing: Each new page you open is located in a new tab in Safari--stacking the tabs as you open new pages (ios 5 only)
    • View Bookmarks: Displays all bookmarks in a dropdown menu
    • Add Bookmark Icon: Add bookmarks, Add to Reading List (iOS 5), Add to Home Screen, Mail Link to this Page, Tweet the Page (iOS 5) and Print are the options (if you are connected to a printer) available under this icon._readerbuttonios5.png
