    Just a simple question. Most likely it depends. When I have it on the table, horizontal. When I have it on my lap, vertical. I guess it's a ergonomic preference more than anything else.

    Vertical because I hate having to press and repress the favorites icon to make it open and close.

    In vertical stance it goes away automatically.

    Portrait, simply because the sluggish omnibar/keyboard animation isn't as noticeable or bad. In landscape orientation tapping the omnibar while currently on a site reveals the sluggish animation as the address highlights, slides left, and the keyboard comes up from the bottom ... and it's all down to the stupid Yosemite style Favourites/Bookmarks box that comes up loaded with semi transparency.

    I'd happily use Reduce Transparencies via Accessibility because it stops this "issue" but the dock looks ugly as sin and it adds (utterly unnecessary) black text for the apps in the dock rather than white. Bizarre design choice.

    My iPad and 6 Plus are always locked in Portrait mode. Always.
    I hate landscape.

    The only time I use landscape is when I watch videos.

    Both. It depends on the website. Either way I'm comfortable, however, I'm in portrait mode now, so portrait mode for typing.

    Always portrait mode for iPads, but for iPhones it depends what I'm looking at. Landscape usually makes the text the perfect size without having to bring it up close to my face.
