A single feature has dramatically improved my iPad: desktop Safari. By making the tablet’s web browser behave mostly like the one you’d use on personal computers running MacOS or Windows, desktop Safari upgraded my iPad into a much more productive mini laptop.
How? In short, by leaving behind the constraints of stripped-down mobile apps in favor of fuller-featured web apps… When pairing an iPad with an external keyboard, you can get almost as much done with desktop Safari as you can with a laptop…
Happily, Apple has brought keyboards to lower-end iPads, including the $329 new entry-level iPad. And you can buy third-party keyboards from companies like Brydge, Logitech and Zagg.
MacDailyNews Take: Again, the main issue with iPad remains text selection. If only text selection on iPad were as precise as it is on Mac (or even close to it)! That seemingly simple issue (which is obviously not simple since text selection remains hit-or-miss nearly a decade after iPad debuted) is what keeps us buying and toting MacBooks along with our iPad Pro units while on the go.
