    There was a request threat that was floating around on page 1 here yesterday but it was a couple years old and seems dead.

    So my request, if anyone is interested, are the following Safari tweaks:

    1. Disable "auto hide" for the top address bar and bottom toolbar so that they are always displayed.

    2. Show the number of open tabs on the bottom right tab icon.

    If these exists or a dev is interested in making them, although I don't have any coding abilities, I would be more than happy to help with testing.

    I saw number two posted on reddit yesterday. You might wanna read that thread and see if anyone released a deb file for you to install.

    This is what I'm waiting for too. Have the URL bar and all the buttons all go away.

    Thanks I see both have been requested over there. Unfortunately nothing has been released.

    I'd follow those threads then. There are times when someone will release a deb file on reddit which you can then manually install. Some pretty cool stuff becomes available at times over there.

    I would really like a tweak that allows setting/changing the icons for favourites in Safari.

    Awesome! Is this in a default repo? I can't seem to find it.

    I would just like a SafariDownload manager...

    and a better way to activate private mode on the iPad, unless I'm doing it wrong... at the moment, it seems you have to launch a new window to turn on private mode:confused:

    I am so sorry. I didn't realize that was in a 3rd party repo. I didn't really look closely at it. I just saw it did what you wanted and posted. My bad.

    I use Dolphin Browser in the App Store. It's a very feasible workaround until a cydia tweak comes out. In my opinion, it's better than a tweak because you don't need an additional cydia substrate addon and I always felt like the download manager addons for safari and chrome made the browsers worse. Dolphin it's built in stock so it runs perfectly.

    Flex could do this on iOS 6. Flex 2 is still in beta so I can't download the patch from the cloud but I can probably create it myself. Let me know if you're a flex user and I'll try to do that for you.

    It's on my short list to do anyways cause I love that patch for my own personal use. It works across all websites that offer those popups though. There's no way to restrict it to just google.

    Interesting. Could you tell us what entry needed to be edited?

    And also Flex 2 beta available somewhere?

    Thanks

    You can use the flex 2 beta for iOS 7 for free(!) from the dev's repo. Http://getdelta.co

    I've been using it and it works great! Only thing is, everything in the cloud is pre ios7 so most won't work. He hasn't opened uploading patches to the cloud for iOS 7 yet. But you can use those as guides to creating your own patches for iOS 7. I can share mine too if you want.

    FYI flex 2 beta is free right now. The public release will not be free obviously. There will be a small upgrade fee I believe. Like $1 or $2.

    Also, the main Flex subreddit has tons of activity for this beta release. Tons of useful information over there!

    ----------

    See my post #22. Also, I haven't created the patch yet but I'll try when I have time. The only safari patch I have created is to hide the status bar. You can also create this same patch for any other app as well. I prefer hiding the status bar in most apps for the extra real estate. The best part is, tap to scroll to the top, activator actions, and the notification center still work when hiding the status bar. I've been a HUGE flex for a long time now haha

    Edit: This is what it looks like with the "still usable, but status bar hidden" patch.

    I believe the Safari related popups are often fixed by searching for runJavaScriptAlertPanelWithMessage and showStoreBannerIfNecessary and making all of the arguments NULL.

    And while you're at it change maximumTabDocumentCount to 99 for unlimited tabs.

    edit: spelling

    I second this. One of my favorite tweaks, by far. Any word from the developer?
