    Is it possible to have new tabs open with something other than the search function?

    In Safari?

    My new tabs have always either opened blank or with the link that I long-pressed to create as a new tab.

    Yes, Safari. Hitting the "+" for a new tab opens the keyboard and blank url. Is there a way to set a homepage?

    No, surprisingly, there isn't. :confused:

    A workaround (but not exactly):
    - Go to the page that you want to use as a homepage.
    - Tap the "share" button at the bottom.
    - Tap "Add to Home Screen"; give the bookmark a name, tap "add" and a new icon will appear on your device.
    - Hide Safari in a folder and use your new icon instead.

    Automatically added tabs will be the homepage, unless that page is already open. Unfortunately hitting the "+" still won't... I don't know if any other browsers have homepages or customizable tabs.
