    Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

    But opening links to webpages from a Google search now all open in Google's AMP form in Safari. Which is fine except when scrolling down the page, the address bar doesn't hide as it's meant to. You also can't quick scroll back to the top of the page by tapping the top of the screen. It's so annoying and pointless to save what must be a tenth of a second. But there doesn't seem to be a way to disable it. I guess use another search engine is the only answer? Does anyone know?

    I couldn't agree more - I just don't see the point of AMP. Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way to disable it

    ... and over enthusiastic web developers are adding support to it. It literally spoils the web experience on iOS devices. The scrolling becomes funny and the obscencely thick tab bar at the top makes me cringe.

    Thinking of switching over to Bing.

    You can usually request the desktop version of the page and that will reload it without all the AMP stuff.

    The previous discussions about this might be of some help as well:
