    When you browse the Internet, do you usually hold your iPad in Portrait (tall and thin), or Landscape (short and wide) orientation ?

    It all depends on the site that I'm browsing. Some just work better in landscape.

    The only time I use landscape is if the font is really small on the website.

    I use portrait all the time. Better for one-handed use.

    Exactly. I can't participate in this poll because my answer is "both."

    When I am holding the device while browsing, and am likely to need to type, I use portrait mode and type on it like a giant mobile phone.

    When I am just viewing content, I tend to prefer landscape mode. I also keep it in landscape mode when using the Apple case's typing posture (for lack of a better term) for composing a post or message.

    For some web photo viewing, I may keep in either format, depending on the dimensions of the photo, itself.

    I prefer landscape too, the fonts are just bigger and easier to read!

    Usually portrait, but I agree to go horizontal if the reading is easier.

    I use landscape the most but it does depend on the site itself.

    overall landscape mode is likely the best

    Too be fair, I use both equally; it depends on what I am doing.
