Opera says that "every design element in Coast has been carefully crafted for iPad. It’s not just a mobile interface scaled up to fit a touchscreen." The browser is primarily gesture-based. There is no title bar, and the address and search fields are normally hidden from view. They can be see them with a simple downward swipe.  A small "home" button that returns the user to a desktop Safari-like grid of your most visited websites and a "most recent" button that displays the user's recent browsing history are the only persistent interface elements.

Report: Some iPad owners would buy a Windows 8 tablet just to browse on IE10

The independent market research firm said that iPad users found everything on IE10 to be better over Safari, from ease of use and the user interface to the speed and the browser’s design.

DisplayLink for iPad: Turning your tablet into a second monitor

The app requires users to download the free iPad app and DisplayLink’s desktop software, after which they can push web pages and various software programmes to the iPad. Users have to direct this content via their PC and type with their keyboard, as the iPad’s touchscreen is disabled until they leave the application. Set-up is quick and simple, and the app is ready to use shortly after the user has identified which PC they wish to pair with.
