    Good morning. I am new to all of this and just figuring out what iPad can and cannot do. I just bought a first generation iPad refurbished and am loving it! I am currently wondering if I can get Internet explorer to run on my iPad. Any assistance would be great.

    Welcome to the iPad and the forum, you will find both to be great! Not sure you can run explorer on iPad though, at least not without jail breaking it first.

    Internet Explorer will not run on the iPad. There are alternative browsers available if you can't get on with Safari, or find it too limiting.

    You could try iCab or Atomic, both of which are regularly mentioned on this forum.

    You may use the Safari as it is the default browser, otherwise, you may download other alternatives like Dolphin HD. Welcome peer!
