    Google's Chrome browser for iPad has this feature where if you swipe from the side it will change between your tabs in the same direction. It has been there since Chrome was first released and I've used it frequently, but never on purpose. You just happen to activate it whenever you for example try to skip the first seconds of a youtube video. Or just whenever you are close to the border of the display. Since I often have numerous tabs running this tab switching can get me competely lost and with the constant reloading of tabs it can make me lose stuff I've written in a mail or in a forum.

    I'm just curious if anybody actually uses this way of switching tabs?
