Yeah, undock that sucker and move it to the second page of the springboard.

Interestingly, G docs is smart enough to catch -or at least get confused- by the user agent spoofing.  So if you need to bookmark a g doc, open it in safari then use that trick bookmarklet to convert it to icab. Then bookmark it in icab. Seems to work, though it is sort of puzzling as to how.

See this trick.  Handy since safari has to remain the default browser.

You got all the modules, Brad.  The developer has simply switched to bundling them all with the download rather than letting you pick and choose the ones to install.  Just delete the ones you don't need under settings.

BTW, there are TWO places to work with settings relevant to icab.  One is on the browser itself, the little gear icon upper right.  But the other one isn't so intuitive.  Look at the OS settings for the whole app, too.

No, but that 'apple banned' announcement here in the us tech press was what first brought icab to my attention even before my iPad and black turtleneck had arrived.   After I ran safari through its paces and determined it was not going to be up to speed for me I went looking ....figuring that if it was good enough for Steve to ban then it was probably something worthwhile.

I wanted a tabbed browser with an opera-like speed dial or QuickStart home desktop.  I also need to be able to easily set the browser user agent to IE. Ideally, since I'd be giving up my high speed trackball for swiping, I wanted custom gestures.  I got all that with icab.  The ability to easily memorize form input is going to turn out to be a nice bonus as typing into small text blocks for logins is a nagging PITA --especially so without a keyboard.

I received my iPad yesterday and have spent the greater part of the last 24 hrs hammering this thing into a form that suited me.  It is a great machine but given the amount of time I spend reading  the browser has to be to my liking ....and safari -while close- just didn't feel right.  OTOH, iCab mobile is an incredible piece of software. Highly configurable.  With it, I expect the iPad to become my main reading machine.

Pair icab with the myphonedesktop app and they handle some of the nuisance issues (like importing long urls or photos) any tablet is going to have.

>2 hours to get deep into the Keys

No keys, but I am on a river that's part of the intracoastal waterway.  It's a little over 2 miles wide where I live and is part of the 2nd largest estuary system in the US. 

Boats have been a big part of my life ...and a big hole in my wallet. Right now, I'm completing a big party/platform boat.  And -even though it's big (29 ft)- I wanted it to be fast enough to pull a skier ...so I had to get the marina to do some, ermmm, creative interpretation of the maximum legal engine size.  It'll hit 35 with 8 people on board.

Looks good, but it'd be all scratched and cloudy with much use.  I'd rather have a small poly kayak.

>So amazon just said FO and got rid of affiliates which are the only thing to tie them to the state.

Well, not the only thing. Somes states have Amazon distribution centers but amz negotiates a "this-does-not-create-nexus" agreement with the state's economic development department before they move in.

>move

Pick a state that doesn't have sales tax 'cause this is going to happen everywhere.
