Re-Open Closed Tabs In iOS5 Safari For iPad

Posted by Matthew Snider with 2 Comments

I have been busy playing iOS 5 and finding the best of the best hidden beneath all of the beauty that it is. On the iPad I have been loving the new tabbed browsing within Safari, it is how it should have been from the start!

Where is it on my iPhone Apple? Get on it Tim!

Either way the new tabbed browsing is something to love for sure. Did you know you can re-open a tabbed you closed? Make the jump to see how!

Okay so here goes:

You can re-open your closed tabs in Safari for iOS 5 by just tapping and holding the + button beside the open tab. After holding it for a second you will see a tiny little pop-up menu that shows you a list of your recently closed tabs.

Kick ass!

If you don’t want anyone to see what you are doing you can either clear your browser cookies via settings or use the private browsing mode.

What are you loving about iOS5 and did you know this trick already? Why didn’t you tell me!

  1. That’s awesome. I didn’t know that! My favorite iOS 5 feature is still iMessage. I love that I can tell which of my friends have iPhones now :)

  2. Seems to only work on tabs that have been manually closed. None of the tabs I had open before it crashed are showing up. My only hope is to scour throu the history – which would be nice if it were word searchable. Safari for the iPad needs much improvement.
