The iPad is one revolutionary device that really shows the progress that has been made in technology for the past couple of decades. Living up to much of the hype, the device did get a good reception from the general public because lots of units got to be sold. However, not all users are quite comfortable with its functionalities in certain areas. In this case, we would be looking at how to install another browser on the iPad, and this is so as to get the best out of your web browsing on your tablet.
The iPad comes with the Safari web browser that is developed by the Apple, the same company that came up with the tablet itself. However, there are certain problems that have been experienced by many users of the iPad when it comes to using the Safari browser.
For instance, there are certain web servers that are not compatible for use with Safari; hence many users are not able to connect to the servers, especially at work, with Safari. Another problem encountered is the lack of one touch tabbed browsing. This pushes others to look for other browsers, but one obstacle to this is that the popular browsers that we use in other devices such as Internet Explorer and Firefox cannot be installed on the iPad.
To Install Another Browser on the iPad
The App Store contains lots of different applications, and this is where you would need to go to get the alternative browser. So, from your iPad click on the icon for App Store. Next, proceed to search for the term ‘browser’ and you would get a list of the browsers that have been approved by the App Store for use with your iPad.
They are about one hundred and seventy two in number, and to see them all, tap on ‘view all‘. After identifying one browser that is of interest to you, proceed to ‘buy app‘, and here, you would be required to enter your password for your Apple account.
The cost of the app would be charged to the credit card number that you would have registered with the account. Generally, such apps cost something between nothing and three dollars.
The software you would have chosen would then automatically get installed on your iPad, with a shortcut icon being placed on the desktop. When the need arises, you just tap on this shortcut icon to start browsing the net using this new browser.
Since there are certain reasons that prompted you to look for another browser for your iPad, it would be prudent if you chose the alternative browser wisely. At least do a background check on its capabilities, and also look at customer reviews, particularly if you decide to go for one that is not available for free but at a cost.
Ensure that your needs are met, and that your browsing experience will indeed improve by getting another browser, because it would make no sense to be frustrated by something that you could exercise choice over.
