This may sound silly, but here goes...
When using laptop, I choose to use for browsing, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera etc, and I assume, whichever one I use, I can make Google my homepage, as I presently do with IE.
When On iPad, I opened Internet, opened Google, and saved My Googlepage to my homescreen, so when I want to surf, I tap my Google icon (which I named) to surf the net.
This means, I never use my Safari icon, and that's no problem for me, but I am puzzled.
My question is, am I right in thinking, that I only have ONE browser on my iPad, like everyone, and that is Sarfari, and if so, all I had to do from the start, was open Safari, and make Google my homepage when I open Safari.
Hope I have made this clear enough.
