what is the most accessible iPhone browser?

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi all,

I seem to be starting to use my iPhone more and my computer less lately but one thing that I'm still not comfortable with is getting on the internet with my phone. I know that safari comes on the phone already but is it really the most accessible I/OS browser available or can somebody suggest anything that's easier to use? I use google chrome on my laptop so I'm at least somewhat familiar with it at least from the computer's standpoint, plus I assume that all of my bookmarks would migrate over but I just had safari open and it appears that a lot of my chrome bookmarks are already there anyway.

Btw I'm using an iPhone 7 if that matters.

I love safari! However, I do you have one thing that I think you should get. If you’re going to do browsing on your phone, I would suggest very highly that you get an ad blocker. They won’t affect voiceover at all. I have one, and I love it! It is made my mobile browsing experience so much better! The one that I use is called Purify. It cost me three dollars, but I’m glad I paid for it. If you Get one, ending on what site to go to, he might have a harder time. Just because of the ads, and images, and other related things. And this app you can choose what you want blocked. Images, fonts, etc. And with all add blockers, you can have sites that you don’t want blocked. So if there’s a site that you want to go to requires ads, then you can make exception. That’s my only advice to you. Is to get an ad blocker. Although I will agree, that it is very subjective, and based on your needs. But honestly, I found Safari to be far more accessible. I’ve tried Google Chrome, and I kind of agree with Chris! I didn’t like it. I didn’t think it was very accessible. Stick with Safari, and you’ll have a much better experience.

icab mobile browser has all of the advanced functions of safari and more. It assumes the user understands all of the configurable options. The browser is highly configurable to the point to set conflicting options. If you understand all of the settings, it is possible to closely ambulate a desktop browser. For most users, this is overkill and the ease of changing the wrong setting easy to do. Browsing power comes with complexity. Many desktop browsers automatically make adjustments that must be made manually in IOS. Finally, many special file types are not supported by IOS.

I have AdGuard on my phone, is that a good adblocker and if so is the free version good enough or should I upgrade to the pro version?

Is there a safari podcast for beginners anywhere on the site? I've looked but all I can find are things about bugs I guess in older versions of the app. If not, I don't use facebook anymore but I know for example that there's an m.facebook.com site for the phone, do all sites have versions that work better with phones etc rather than desktops?
