    I don't know if my eyes were playing tricks, but it looked to me that there was a number "2" in the switch-page button at the top of the Safari screen.

    This was one of my requests, actually, that we have an idea how many "tabs" we have opened, so I think it's been implemented! :)

    Of course I might have been imagining things, but I'm pretty sure!

    Hmm. Didn't notice that. But I did notice a button to the left ofnthe address bar. Looked like the button you hit to make a picture your background. Hmmmm

    Safari on my iPhone 4 gives me a number in the bottom right, indicating how many tabs I have open. Maybe it's just part of iOS 4 and it'll show up in November on the iPad.

    Yes it's surely has a new icon for tabs — and a new icon for "sharing" I think.

    I don't know, but it's officially written on Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/ipad/software-update/

    "easily find and highlight specific words and phrases on large web pages."

    That's because that iPad was running 4.2, as steve said. So it looks like you'll have your feature in November. :)

    I was expecting something more elaborated for iOS 4.2 so it would be worth the wait, but just a big version of the iPhone software just isn't enough (In my thoughts)

    Please, Apple, make Safari for the iPad much better....please.

    It is a complete let-down that a single person (You are awesome, Richard) developed a web-browser—The Atomic Web Browser—that is far and away more complete than Apple's iPad web browser...:confused:

    Please just let them fix the reloading tabs issue as it's driving me nuts. I love my iPad but Safari is just getting tiresome now. On Macrumors tonight every single time I close a tab that i have opened a link from it reloads the original page. So annoying. I prefer Safari to Atomic Browser so if Apple can just fix that I won't pull what remains of my hair out.

    Just curious, why do you prefer Safari? Because if it's the look and feel you prefer, I would suggest looking at iCab. It has a nice clean Apple Safari look, but with additional features of Atomic. :)

    I'll give it a go. Just downloaded it and it seems good. Like the scroll pad feature. Thanks :)

    Ok I've used it for a few hours now and I love it. Safari was really starting to aggravate me and iCab has addressed the issue I had and a few more I didn't realise I had :) Thanks for the recommendation mate. Most appreciated. My only gripe is that I hate the icon :)
