Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_blw/public/field/image/2015/01/how_to_close_icloud_tabs_iphone_6_plus_hero.jpg?itok=OuEXBS-z' />[/url]</p> <p>Safari for iPhone spun out of Safari for Mac and was one of the very first fully functional web browsers ever to hit mobile. Taking all that power and making it simple and accessible for the masses meant that, over the years, a lot of shortcuts and time savers got hidden away behind gestures. Luckily, once you know how to long-tap (touch and hold) and swipe your way around, you'll be using Safari for iPhone faster than ever!<!--break--></p> <p>Note: Some shortcuts, like history list and tab restore don't work in private browsing mode, because private.</p> <h2 class="slideshow">1. Jump to the top</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_jump_top_screen_0.jpg?itok=OvZJLyzb' />[/url]</p> <p>One of the first and still one of the best iPhone gestures, while I'm sure almost all of you already know this, I'm including it just in case. If you've spent a while scrolling down a page but decide you want to go back to the top, instead of scrolling all the way back up, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the title bar at the very top of the screen. (If the address bar is minimized, tap twice — once to maximize it, once to jump up.)</li> </ol><h2>2. Tap to show toolbar</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_show_toolbar_screen_0.jpg?itok=-pFCGya2' />[/url]</p> <p>To show you more of the page content, Safari hides the toolbar as you scroll down. Instead of trying to make it reveal itself by scrolling back up, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the very bottom of the screen.</li> <li>Tap the tool button you want to invoke.</li> </ol><h2>3. Swiftly save or copy an image</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_save_copy_image_screen_0.jpg?itok=LNpHz4Tm' />[/url]</p> <p>If you come across an image on a website you want to save or copy to the clip board, try this:</p> <ol><li>Touch and hold down on an image.</li> <li>Choose to save or copy it from the menu.</li> </ol><p>(If it doesn't work, the image may be embedded in the style sheet instead of the page — no luck!)</p> <h2>4. Flash back in history</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_history_back_screen_0.jpg?itok=JC9bIr7o' />[/url]</p> <p>If you've tapped a bunch of links and decide you want to go back to a previous page, instead of tapping the back button or swiping to go back a page at a time, try this:</p> <ol><li>Touch and hold down on the back arrow button at the bottom left to pull up the history list of pages you visited previously.</li> <li>Tap the page you want to jump back to.</li> </ol><h2>5. Flash forward in history</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_history_forward_screen_0.jpg?itok=9CHAMAlr' />[/url]</p> <p>If you've already jumped back but decide you want to go forward again, instead of tapping the forward button or swiping forward a page a time, try this:</p> <ol><li>Touch and hold down on the forward arrow button at the bottom left to pull up the history list of pages you visited next.</li> <li>Tap the page you want to jump forward to.</li> </ol><h2>6. Bookmark 'em in a blink</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_bookmark_menu_screen.jpg?itok=Bq7vFnAR' />[/url]</p> <p>If you land on a page you love and you want to make sure you remember it, instead of tapping the share button and then choosing what you want to do, try this:</p> <ol><li>Touch and hold down on the bookmark button at the bottom center to bring up the bookmark menu.</li> <li>Tap add a bookmark, add to reading list, or add to shared links.</li> </ol><h2>7. Rapidly reorder tabs</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_drag_re-order_tabs.jpg?itok=9f1-s65y' />[/url]</p> <p>If you like to keep your tabs in a very specific order, and they aren't already the way you want them, instead of closing them and opening them all again, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the tabs button.</li> <li>Touch and hold down on the tab you want to reorder.</li> <li>Drag it to the position you want it.</li> </ol><h2>8. Speedily swipe away tabs</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_swipe_close_tabs.jpg?itok=NBObWixB' />[/url]</p> <p>When the time comes to close a tab, you can hit the small X button at the top left, but if you want to be a little more physical, and have a little more fun, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the tabs button</li> <li>Touch and hold down on the tab you want to close.</li> <li>Toss it away to the left.</li> </ol><h2>9. Quickly restore tabs</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_recently_closed_tabs_screen_0.jpg?itok=D3XjUK5h' />[/url]</p> <p>If you close a tab or set of tabs by mistake, or you close them but later wish you hadn't, instead of trying to remember the page, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the tabs button at the bottom right</li> <li>Touch and hold down the + button to bring up a list of recently closed tabs.</li> <li>Tap the tab you want to restore</li> </ol><h2>10. Remotely close iCloud tabs</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/secret-safari-shortcuts-gestures-speed-your-iphone-browsing' title="Secret Safari shortcuts: Ten gestures to speed up your iPhone browsing!"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large/public/field/image/2015/01/safari_iphone_delete_icloud_tab_screen_0.jpg?itok=kr5uXEgm' />[/url]</p> <p>If you leave a tap open on an iPad or Mac you wish you hadn't, instead of running back to the device, turning it on, going to Safari, and closing the tab, try this:</p> <ol><li>Tap the tabs button and scroll down to iCloud tabs</li> <li>Swipe across the iCloud tab to bring up the delete button. </li> <li>Tap the delete button to close the tab.</li> </ol><h2>Your favorite shortcuts?</h2> <p>These Safari shortcuts should have you browsing faster than ever!
