    Why is it when you click on something in some web sites it goes to the link and others it asks if you want to open. Does it have to do with some sites not being ipad compatible?

    Was this a dumb question, lots of views but no answers?

    there's no dumb questions.

    i think it's because your question is a bit confusing. ;)

    Ahhh ok, so I go to some websites and there is a link to another web site, you touch the link and sometimes you go right to the link and other times a ipad little window pops up and asks if you want to open, copy, etc.?

    It depends on how long you press the link. If you just tap on the link, the link opens. If you tap and hold the link, the context menu opens, asking you whether you want to open in a new tab/window, copy, etc.

    If it asks you,it should only be when you are in a browser outside Safari.
