    How would I go about simulating the iPad internet browsing experience on my desktop?

    I'm dithering over buying an iPad but I do use a lot of websites which utilise Flash and so I'd like to see if I can find alternative compatible sites that would work for me.

    I assume if I download Safari there will be an option somewhere to disable Flash content? Is that all I would need to do?

    Thanks for any help.

    Why not go to your local Apple or Tech store and try one out? You'll get a more realistic experience that way.

    I have tried one out and I loved it. I would be there all day if I were to try and find alternatives to all the sites I use however.

    Which is why I would like to try it out at home first where I can spend a few hours seeing what I can figure out.

    Hit f5 every time you switch tabs on the desktop.

    iOS SDK

    Download the iOS SDK for free from Apple. It comes with an iPad simulator.
