    A moment ago, I was reading another thread, where someone was asking about an Ad Blocker, for iPhone.

    Then it got me thinking. I only ever use Google Chrome. And, that's because I have plenty of Bookmarks saved, and synched to multiple computers/devices.

    Anyway, all that to ask, which browser do you use on iOS, and why?

    PS: I was not sure which forum to post this in. Hence I asked it as a question.
    Please feel free to move it to the right section. Thanks

    I use safari. Syncs with all of my different devices, and works a little better than chrome. I use both chrome and safari on my macbook pro though.

    I use safari. I like the speed and UI better than chrome. I use Mozilla on my work laptop but use safari on my iPad and iPhone. I try to avoid google when I can.

    On my iPhone and personal MacBook Pro, I only use Safari because it’s baked in and more than suits my web browsing needs. On my work-issued MacBook Air, I use Google Chrome because it is required.

    I use Safari across my devices. Mostly because I can’t change the default browser on iPhone and iPad, so it makes sense to keep using Safari on macOS. That and the dark mode built-in to Safari with iOS 13 is nice.

    Curious, if I install the Chrome plugin for Safari, my Chrome favourites should sync with Safari on my iPhone/iPad?


    A moment ago, I installed said plugin, on my Windows machine. Thus far, I do NOT see my favourites in Safari or my iPhone/iPad. I will check it again in a few hours. Maybe it needs time to sync...

    I'm giving Safari more than its fair chance, but some of the websites I have to use for work don't play very nice with Safari.

    I use Safari on my iPhone and have Safari, Chrome and Firefox on my iMac units.

    Sometimes I find one works better then the other depending on what I doing on my desktop.

    I use Safari on my Apple devices because it’s convenient & I hate having a million apps on my devices. Edge or Firefox (very seldom Chrome) on my work PC because there’s no Safari.

    Are not allowed to install a different browser? My work placed Chrome on mine. I deleted it and installed Firefox. Much better browser.

    On my iPhone and iMac I just use Safari.

    I use Duck Duck Go on occasion, but my preference is Startpage.com. Check it out if you haven’t already.

    I like Startpage, though for general searches for work, I set up Bing, so I can earn points towards a coffee at one of the big chains.

    I use Safari on all of my personal devices (iPhone, iPad Pro & MacBook Pro) out of convenience.

    On my work computer I use Chrome due to the feature set and how well it works within our environment.

    This is exactly my scenario for the same reasons.
