    I agree. One of the reasons why I love Safari. Probably my favorite piece of Lion :p

    I don't know, I've never missed it, to be honest. I think clicking the back button (one press) is faster than gestures, where I would have to swipe the screen -- a bigger and slightly more time-consuming gesture. But that may be just me.

    If you jailbreak, this is possible. Look for "fullscreen for iPad."

    Unless you keep your finger constantly hovering above the back button, it's still a larger gesture than a swipe. Plus, it requires more specific input, whereas the "swipe" is a casual, almost negligent thing. And much more natural, IMO, because it feels like pushing a piece of paper to the side on a desk to get to the piece underneath.

    I've started using the Atomic browser for this piece of functionality alone. You can customize it to respond to a two finger swipe.

    Edit: Looks like someone else recommended Atomic. Guess I need to learn to read better!
