iPad tablets are getting so popular they are starting to replace laptops for people who want the convenience of mobile computing. Just like mobile surfing, the iPad use the same browsers on iPhones and iPods but on a larger screen since they all run on same Apple iOS. Browsing on an iPad requires an internet connection which could either be from a Wi-Fi network or Mobile service provider sources. Depending on the iPad model you are using, you can connect to the internet either via the Wi-Fi or if you own a 3G-enabled iPad, you can connect using the internet services offered by your provider.
The iPad comes with Safari browser which offers all the typical browser tools. Browsing with an iPad is an awesome experience as it is easier to scroll and navigate to any part of the browser. You can also download and install other browsers like Atomic Web Browser and Duo browser from the App store.
How to browse the internet with an iPad
HOW TO CONNECT THE iPAD TO THE INTERNET: Depending on your iPad model, you may have to connect your iPad to the internet using the Wi-Fi or 3G Internet connections. So I am going to reveal how you can connect your iPad to the internet in the following steps below:
To connect to a Wi-Fi or 3G network:
- Go to settings
- In the settings screen, tap Network
- Tap the Wi-Fi button and slide the slider to “on”. If there are wireless networks around you, in few seconds you’ll see the list of all the available networks and the strength of each network.
- Tap the network name you want to connect to, then tap the “join” button at the bottom of the screen, you will require a password if it is a private network but won’t require such if it is a public network.
After connecting to the internet, next is to tap on the safari icon on the Home screen, once the safari opens you can now enter your desired url in the address bar and hit the enter key and wait for your browser to connect and open the web page you requested. You can use the “enlarge the view” or zoom in, “shrink the view” or zoom out, restore screen size, scroll down the page and return to the top of the web page to navigate around the page.
To zoom in, put two fingers on the screen and drag apart, while you drag together to shrink an expanded page. Double-tap on the screen with a finger to restore the browser to its default screen size. To scroll the web page, simply put a finger on the screen and flick upwards or downwards.
