Tip: Sync Internet Explorer and Safari Bookmarks with Your iPad

by

If you are looking for a simple way to keep your Safari or Internet Explorer bookmarks synchronized with your iPad you will find that there is a setting tucked away in iTunes that will allow you to do just that. Follow the instructions below to enable bookmark syncing between your iPad and Internet Explorer or Safari on your computer.

As of this writing it looks like only these two browsers are supported. I have Opera, Firefox, and Chrome installed and none of these browsers appeared on the list. If you are looking for a way to synchronize bookmarks from Firefox to your iPad, check out the Firefox Home app.

    You cannot run Internet Explorer on the iPad, however you can use an application like Wyse or LogMeIn to log onto a computer in your home network and use it through your iPad. This requires that you have remote desktop enabled on your computer and that the iPad and computer you are trying to connect to are on the same network. Please let me know if you need more guidance.
