Surfing on the iPhone on iOS 6 was a joy in landscape mode. Screen real state was preserved nicely by the nice gestures that accompanied the OS. The most obvious and useful was 1 tap to hide and show the UI. In iOS 7 the wonderful one tap gesture has been replaced by the woeful swipe down gesture to show the UI. There are 2 big problems with this: 1. When you are scrolling when redding a webpage you normally just scroll the page down by swiping the screen up, but many times you want to return to a previous point in the article and when you swipe the screen down the UI is shown. The only way to avoid this is to let your finger be all the time on the screen so that the UI is not shown. 2. The problem will not be so terrible if the UI did not take so much space of an already tiny screen when working in landscape orientation. But the Safari UI in iOS 7 (and generally over all the OS) is HUGE. You lost so much real screen state when it is on that this just kills the experience. Comm'on Apple: Give us back the option to 1 tap on the screen to show the GUI. Let us choose by ourselves between the horrendous new swipe down gesture or the magnificent 1 tap gesture of iOS 6. At least for Safari. The iPhone 5 has a very small screen when it's been used in landscape orientation. Other apps like Evernote are also terribly affected by this.
