    it is real, the Firefox browser does not run on iOS devices. This is because Mozilla, the parent company of Firefox will not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set by Apple for apps in the App Store.

    You can't delete Safari. It's a built in app, it's one of the apps that come with the iPad and can't be deleted, just hidden. To hide Safari, you'll need to enable restrictions. Go to Settings (the app), there select General and scroll down to Restrictions. Enter your passcode. If you didn't set up a passcode for Restrictions, you'll need to do it now. Then disable Safari. This means to slide the button until it's not coloured. It should look like this:

    There are a few browsers that you can use for the iPad. Just go to the App Store and search for "browser". You'll certainly get many results from which to choose. Afaik Puffin supports Adobe Flash, Photon is another browser that supports Flash.

    Hope that helps.

    The Atomic browser is a good alternative to safari. But as others have pointed out, you can't delete safari.

    I just switched to LastPass to manage my password collection, and was happy to discover that the Mercury browser has a plugin that inserts login data from the LastPass database with one tap. I don't even need to copy/paste. Mercury keeps looking better and better to me.

    Apple does not allow Mozilla to use their own Browsing engine, which means the true Firefox cant be built on ios due to Apple's tough restrictions.
