    Anyone notice how when you open a new tab in safari the cursor goes to the web address bar instead of the search window?

    Anyway to fix that ?

    Yes I noticed it and welcomed it. I never liked how a new Safari tab would default to the search bar and open a dialog box. I just want a tab to open and not open dialog boxes.

    But as far as fixing it, I don't see where there is or ever was an option to change it's behavior.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    So theres no way to have a default page open with new tabs like in
    Mac OS Safari?

    Not that I'm aware of, but I'll poke around a bit more and see if I find anything.

    The settings for Safari on iOS are rather straightforward and I don't see any options for modifying the URL and search bar behaviors.

    Maybe in the jailbreak world that can be changed, but I don't know anything about it. Sorry.

    i agree. i always hated how opening a new tab put the cursor in the search bar and opened up a drop-down of search results. annoying as hell! glad the cursor defaults to the web bar now.
