What is Safari?

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I have an iPad with retina display. I would like to know what Safari is and what will it do for me?

I am still learning about this iPad (and my grandson answers necessary questions)!

Thanks, Carole

Dear Carole,

Safari is the built in web browser on your iPad. You use it to view web pages and search online.

If you are used to using Internet Explorer on your computer, Safari is the same type of program on your iPad.

I hope this helps, Elizabeth
