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. iCab can save the tabs when quitting so these can be loaded even when being offline, the next time the App is launched.
Bookmarks can be organized in folders. You can import/export the bookmarks from/to your PC/ browser. Bookmarks can be also saved as “Offline Bookmarks” which can be even opened without an internet connection.
iCab Mobile provides a fullscreen mode where the whole screen is used to display the web page. No screen space is wasted for toolbars.

The unique “Scrollpad” feature lets instantly scroll to any location within a web page (Tap with three fingers on the screen to activate the Scrollpad).
iCab Mobile itself can be password protected. When password protection is on, you can enable a guest mode with limited privileges which is available without a password. The guest mode can have its own subset of bookmarks and search engines.

What’s New in Version 8.9.1
Fixes an issue which only occurs on an iPad under iOS 8.4 where certain Alert boxes did not open.
What’s New in Version 9.2
– Improved “Fill out Forms” feature which will now also support forms defined by invalid or broken HTML code
– Friends of the AdBlock plus/EasyList filters can now directly use these filter lists within iCab Mobile. You need to download your favorite filter lists from one the available AdBlock plus/EasyList sources, then tap on the filters file in the download manager and select the “Import AdBlock/EasyList Filter” menu item. This is all you need to do. iCab Mobile will then import all filters from the filter list it can use (not all filters in those lists can be used) and creates a new filter set in the filter manager. All the filters will be converted into iCab’s own filter format, so you can enable/disable and edit them just like any other filters. Please note: it is not recommended to use these AdBlock/EasyList filters on older iOS devices (like the, or iPad mini 1). These filter lists include an extremely large number of filters, which might cause speed and memory issues on these older devices.
– On the iPhone when using the combined URL/Search field, the icon of the currently selected search engine will be displayed at the left of the field while entering the search term or URL. This way you can directly see which search engine will be used for the search. Tapping on this icon will also directly show the lost of search engines where you can pick another one for the search.
– When filling out forms, the keyboard has another button attached which can be used to put the content of the clipboard into the currently selected form field
– When filling out forms on an iPad underand later, it is now possible to move the buttons that are attached to the keyboard (fill form, save form, QR code scanner and paste clipboard)to the left or right using a swipe gesture. So if the buttons overlap certain elements of the web site, these can be moved to the other side.
– New Module added to call the “CamelCamelCamel” service, which lists the price history of a product on an Amazon product page
– Added a workaround for misconfigured web servrs which explicitly ask the browser to download JSON files, that should definitely not be downloaded
– Bugfix: When using the Twin Browser Mode, the fullscreen buttons have to be used twice for the second browser after the fullscreen mode was enabled in the first
– Added a workaround for the case where network connections time out for no reason.
