Love it on my iPhone 5. Wondering why no fullscreen option for Safari on any of my iPads? (mini and iPad 2)

I'm sorry, but I do not understand your question. Safari is full screen on my iPad 4 and has been on every iPad I've had from the first.

Your kidding, right?

Still on 6.1.3 - if there's no Safari full screen on the iPad, will stay put.

He's asking why the search bar doesn't retract when scrolling down, like it does on the iphone in IO7

There's rumours going round about a possible IO7 optimised for the ipad. Let's wait and see in October.

Would certainly be needed imo.

No full screen on my Mini nor the new indextabst o swipe away open web pages. I prefer that than just hitting the x on each of the webpages to close.

Solution: Use Chrome.

Alternative solution: use Coast by Opera

Browser designed for the iPad; not a scaled down desktop browser

This.
The lack of full screen dosent bother me on safari because the screen is so much bigger. I can understand why they do it on the iPod touch and iPhone.

I never bother to browsing websites with Safari on iPad so iPad screen is too big so it is not need for fullscreen. :apple:
