Asus has kept the standard Android 4.0 ICS browser for the Transformer Pad Infinity, which means you've got Flash support and tabbed browsing as standard.

You'll likely have to visit Google Play to download the latest version of Flash, and here you'll also find alternative browsers, such as Opera or Dolphin HD.

Google's browser makes it easy to catalogue favourites via the small star icon in the top right-hand corner. You can add your favourite websites – such as TechRadar – to your bookmarks page or the home screen directly.

You can keep a bookmark on the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity itself, or link it to your Gmail account so you can get to it on your other devices.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity review

It goes without saying that browsing the web with the Asus Transformer Infinity Pad's Super IPS 1920 x 1200 screen is a great experience. Zoomed pages look impressive, and the extra pixel count keeps both images and text looking crisp.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity review

The Asus Transformer Infinity Pad packs 1GB of RAM, which keeps browsing smooth and lag-free, even with several tabs open simultaneously.

The Infinity Pad tablet has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity as well. At present, you'll have to rely on Wi-Fi, because Asus has yet to announce a 3G version.
