I’ve been slowly getting to grips with my new iPad and configuring it to make it a useful business tool.

However I have just found a handy work around for many of these frustrations through the use of bookmarklets. Setting them up can be a little fiddly but once you have done so you can add some powerful extra functionality to the browser. This screenshot shows the bookmarklets I have added to ‘Save to’ folder on the Bookmarks Bar:
