    I just realized I saw a sign of hope.

    In that small matter of scrolling in Safari going upward opens up the search bar at the top and going downward hides it.

    When its going down you are likely reading. When its going up, you are likely done browsing and heading back to the top. But now you dont have to.

    If you arent leaving thats fine too. But now its done right. (This is a new beta 3 feature right??)

    So. It seems things here and there are being significantly redesigned.

    The trajectory looks hopeful. What if Jony Ive is just taking us along for some bombastic ride where by the end its like a whole new polished super system of peace.

    The question is how much more can they do?

    been there since beta 2. I had my "aha!" moment when someone brought it to my attention that I could just tap the bottom to expose the menu without scrolling up.

    No, now it just appears from mere scrolling...

    Yup, this has been in iOS 7 since beta 1 was released. Still a great feature though, it can just be a bit annoying when the bars pop up with a tiny bit of movement.

    Um, this has been the way it worked since beta 1. :p If you scroll down back up slowly, the controls won't appear. Only if you do it fast.

    It's good for most purposes, but it's kind of annoying to have to slight scroll up to access the tabs button if you change tabs a lot like me. I wish there was a gesture that takes you directly to the tabs screen since you need to go there to close tabs.

    Is it more smooth now or what? It just popped out at me.

    Something has to be different. Snappier maybe.

    They've reduced the sensitivity in b3; there's now a bit of 'dead zone' when you scroll up, before the bar pops up.

    edit: upon further use it seems that it's more about how quickly you swipe down - if you go fairly slowly the top/bottom bars will never pop up. Cool!

    the scrolling thing has been there since beta 2. I posted a thread asking how to make the menu appear without scrolling lol.

    In the betas before 3, the top bar would not disappear completely when browsing in landscape. Now it does. When scrolling the whole screen shows the whole web page, something it did in iOS 6 too, but not in iOS 7 beta 1 or 2....so the OP is correct...in sort. Definately an improvement.

    Couldn't be that amazing to you if you didn't notice it during the first two betas......
