Should it be easier to open a new blank tab in Safari?

It seems like it requires an unnecessary number of steps, when it should only require one.

I don't mean to sound lazy, but with the ease with which jailbreaking has shown things can be done I find it cumbersome.

It's literally 2 clicks. And it's not like your thumb has to travel all that far either. I'm sorry, but it sounds extremely lazy.

You're not sounding lazy, apparently you are. IF the milisecond it takes to click that extra button is too much for you then there is something REALLY wrong with you.

To be fair, although unnecessary, a huge number of things Apple do are for the mere convenience of not having to click one more thing or go one more place.

It's reasonable to ask why a little button doesn't exist to do this on the main screen (or perhaps an option to have it on the bottom instead of bookmarks) rather than the two clicks.
