Browsing with Wi-Fi and Safari

Safari on the iPod puts the power of a real Internet browser into your pocket. There’s nothing half-cocked or watered down about it. You can browse the real Web and read real sites without major compromise. It’s such an amazing step forward in technology that you’ll find yourself shaking your head with disdain when you remember the time when your iPod could only play music.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you move on from this chapter:
  • iPods work in more ways than just vertical. Go ahead and flip your iPod on its side. Your Safari pages will adjust.

  • Nope, there’s no Flash support. There never will be. And you don’t need it.

  • Web Clips are a great way to access your favorite web sites right from your iPad’s home screen.

  • Lost your address bar? Use the “double-tap to the top” trick.

  • Safari’s page management tool lets you navigate back and forth between several Safari windows at once. This functions like the way tabs function on desktop browsers.
