One of the major reasons you bought an iPhone (or iPod touch; everything in this article applies to it, too) was probably to use the Internet on it. If you're planning to browse the web, most likely you'll be using Safari, the iPhone's built-in web browser (though there are other browser apps available).

While Safari is like a desktop web browser in many ways, in some other important ways, it's very different. Read on to learn both the basics, and some more advanced tips, for using Safari on iPhone.

In this article you'll learn how to:

  • Zoom in and out on the screen
  • Open links in new windows
  • Add, edit, and delete bookmarks; and make webclips
  • Email or print webpages
  • Find out if you can use Adobe Flash or Java
  • Play web audio or video over AirPlay
  • Change your default search engine
  • Clear your browsing history and files.
