CIAL Browser is a try to implement a web browser close to MobileSafari for both iPhone and iPad ! The goal of this code is to provide a basis for implementing a web browser in your applications with some advanced features (customizable long taps menu, bookmark, …) !


Here is a list of features supported by CIALBrowser :

  • Design close to Mobile Safari (iOS 4.x) native application (for both iPhone and iPad)
  • Bookmark support (support for folders in bookmarks not implemented yet)
  • Mail link support
  • Print web page support
  • Long tap handling (open or copy link)

What is missing

What is missing to be closer to Mobile safari application :

  • No multi pages support ( could be a good start point to add this)
  • No blue progress bar over url text field
  • No google search text field
  • No save of history
  • No proposal when entering an already visited URL in the address text field
  • No support for server with untrusted certificates (need to ask the user what to do and to handle security exceptions)
  • Not showing the title of the page and the lock in case of https pages
  • on iPhone, the bar is locked on the screen (while it is disappearing when loading done in Mobile Safari)


Forks, patches and other feedback are more than welcome.
