How to use Safari

The new "desktop class" features of Safari are getting all the press in iPadOS, but the new download folder and the best support for websites are not everything. There are also new configuration panels in the application with a lot of options, for example, size of the site text, and even a new font in the Safari Reader view. Let's review.

Safari Application Configuration Panel

The new Safari configuration panel is accessed from a new button on the far left of the URL bar. The new buttons display an icon aA that replaces the old icon of 4 lines of iOS 12 Reader View. Tap and you will see this:

As you can see, this is still the place to access the Reader's View (more on this in a second) , but there are also several new options …

Font size

This is huge (possibly literally). Now you can increase or decrease the type size on any page by simply touching these buttons. The 100% button returns the text to the default site size.This configuration is preserved for that site, so you will never have to deal with small text again.Set, and forget.I love this function.

Hide toolbar

Hide toolbar does just that, hides the toolbar of Safari, showing only one strip with the name of the site. To retrieve the toolbar, just touch anywhere on this strip. It is not necessary to re-enter the configuration panel to turn it off. This is useful if you are making a large up and down scroll, since it prevents the toolbar from appearing each time you move backwards, even a little. It can be even more useful on the iPhone, with its smaller screen, but I have not tried it yet.

Request mobile site

In iPadOS, Safari automatically loads the Desktop site standard, the same one you see on your Mac. If you prefer to view the mobile version of a site, you can request it here. It is also possible to configure this as default per site, using the Website Configuration panel that we will see in a moment.

Turn off content blockers

You can turn off the content blockers for the current page, and they will remain disabled until you reload the page. And again, it is also possible to see this as default per site.

It is now possible to make site-specific settings for content blockers, using content blocking applications. 1Blocker, for example, allows you to adjust your configuration without leaving Safari, thanks to an excellent shared extension. The native alternation of Safari is primitive in comparison: it is only enabled or disabled, while 1Blocker will allow you to enable only comments on a site, for example, while still blocking all other crawlers.

But the native method has one big advantage: it works without telling any third party application which sites are on the whitelist. And it is also much faster to use.

Website settings

In addition to the persistent settings for the options detailed above, you can also deny a site's access to the camera, microphone, and its location. These are enabled or disabled by default, depending on the general privacy settings of your device.

A new source in Reader View

If Reader View had folders, I would use it to replace Instapaper. Despite this, I use it daily, in any place that is ugly, has too small fonts (although the new text size setting mitigates this), or is usually full of distractions and poor design decisions. The new source is New York, and I prefer it to the other options.

I wish there were more settings for margin size, line spacing, etc., but if you switch between the sources, then you can get some different options for this. The reader view can also be configured as the default view for any page (this is already an option in Safari in iOS 12).

All in all, this is a super solid set of new options and bonus brands. To Apple for not hiding them in the configuration application. There are not so many new features in iPadOS and iOS 13. It's more that iOS is finally being taken seriously as a computing platform, at the same level as the Mac. It's a direction I love, and one that benefits everyone, not just the nerds of power. Thumb up.
