containing advertising from opening automatically. It is very easy to
modify these filters. Simply control-click on any image you wish to

HTML errors, or hazards). In such sites, the smiley face will be green
(and smiling). Errors make the smiling face red and sad. By clicking the
red smileys iCab will open a window where all the errors are identified
with a small description. At http://validator.w3.org/ you can also test
web pages using the official validator of the W3C.
HTML pages can be stored in a compact ZIP-file,
including all images of the page. The advantage of the ZIP format is
that you can use it under DOS/Windows, Unix/Linux -and nearly all other
operating systems as well. The ZIP archive uses highly efficient
compression, to save hard disk space.
pages can be downloaded automatically. This allows you to access the
content off-line at your convenience, without having to go online again.

linked files, all html, all images, all files on the same site, or even
all linked files from all external linked sites. Additionally, you can

this handy menu utility, a convenient split window opens with all page
links identified and listed on the left side. Pick any link, and the
respective site appears on the right side of the window. Using the link
manager you can comfortably search through long lists of links (for
example the result of a search engine) without the need to open any new
windows. This way you can avoid sites you do not wish to visit, or
information sources which are not be useful to you.
When selecting this handy menu utility, the source code
of a page will be displayed in any (chosen) editor, or directly in iCab.
iCab can automatically reload and re-display the entire page whenever
the HTML code is saved in the editor. You can easily access all files
which are used in the current page from a list, where the files are

iCab's unique and thorough cookie
controls, Java scripting controls, and filters offer you a broader range
of control about your privacy and safety on the internet. You can
choose to "allow or refuse" any illegal HTML/HTTP or security practices
you encounter. iCab allows you (if you choose) to have convenient
warnings about any dangerous sites you visit where your computer or
security are threatened by rogue code, or important data exchange that
is conducted in an insecure environment.
iCab removes or
restrains many annoying things from web pages: like scrolling text
messages in the status-line (which disable its reporting function);
windows that alter their size or position automatically to interfere
with your organizing preferences; web pages that switch off all the
navigation toolbars, etc. All this is done without completely disabling
the technology used by these features, unlike all other browsers where
you have only an "either/or" choice (or no choice at all).
