Review

iCab is a web browser that comes as an alternative to using Mac's Safari utility for accessing websites of your interest. The application provides you with many useful features, comes with a comprehensive help manual, and uses a small amount of CPU resources while operating on your Mac.

This utility also comes with a built-in bookmark manager, helps you print pages from your favorite websites, and lets you choose from multiple view options.

An important advantage is that the program provides you with tools which help you prevent unauthorized users from tracking your browsing activity. The app also features a cookie removal option which can be found in the Preferences panel of the utility.

However, iCab lacks an option to browse the web anonymously. Another thing I didn't like was its interface. To me, it wasn't appealing at all. Also, the program comes with a price tag. There are countless web browsers that provide you with similar features and cost less or are free.

Personally, I prefer using my default web browser instead of paying for another that offers me almost identical features. However, you can take the application for a test run and decide yourself if it's worth buying it or continue using your Mac default tool for browsing the web.

All in all, it is a nice web browser. But it feels a bit too pricey, as there are decent free rivals.
