Now that swiping over from the right side of the screen brings up the pullover, I'm unsure how to go fwd a page anymore in Safari.
Anybody figured this one out??

Wow weird. It truly looks like swipe forward is gone. Hopefully it will be back in a future beta.

This is what I was thinking. I loved that feature, but I also want to multitask. I hope there will be a way.

EDIT: On videos that I've seen, slide-over only immediately activates if you swipe from the middle of the side. Anywhere else and it brings up that annoying tab that Notification/Control Centre does. Maybe the gesture still works there.

This thread died a death but, having just downloaded official iOS 9 as a regular user, I came looking for the answer and found this thread.

Well done nj-Morris, you were correct. I only tried it towards the top of the right edge but you were absolutely right. Swipe from the right in the middle of the screen and it brings up the multi-tasking stuff, swipe in from the right towards the top of the right hand edge of the screen and it does the safari forward-page gesture. Thank goodness for that, even after an hour I was really missing being able to do the forward-page gesture.

You're welcome. I remember it wasn't available in Beta 3, even with slide-over disabled, but then it got added in Beta 4 or 5.
