    How is it that in 2015, Safari still doesn't have a pull to refresh/reload on iOS9? The one app that needs it most...

    What's the point? By the time you are done reading with an article, you will be at the bottom of the page anyways. It would be easier to tap the reload icon directly, than to scroll back to the top and pull to refresh.

    Perhaps because people would just end up refreshing when they didn't want to?

    I'd foresee people constantly having to endure page reloads (also wasting data usage) when all they really wanted to do was scroll back up to the top of the pages they'd been reading.

    I imagine that there's no pull to refresh in safari as that could result in accidental ad taps as many websites put a wide ad at the top of the page. Also, menu items on other sites could also be tapped when not wanted.

    Pull to reload in Safari would be a nightmare.. Thankfully it doesn't exist!

    I could do with a button that *stops* Safari reloading.

    That said, I do wish there was a shortcut to go to the bottom of the webpage. I know there is a javascript bookmarklet that lets me do this, but I wish it was baked into the OS directly.

    That pull-down-gesture is one of the (many) atrocious aspects of Chrome. No thanks.

    Perhaps people should pay attention to where their finger is before they tap? Seems like common sense to me.

    Pull to refresh seems unnecessary to me. Most of the time you will be on the page somewhere, so pull to refresh would require you to either scroll to the top or click on the status bar to do the same first. By then the refresh button is revealed to you anyway. Pull to refresh makes sense for those views in which you are mostly looking at the top of the list, like in Mail.

    Pull to refresh is a feature that is really there for streams content or lists of items, not really just web sites. That's why it makes sense in apps like Twitter or Facebook and be like, along with Mail where you are checking for new content that is coming in on a consitent basis basically, but that doesn't translate that much to web pages which are mostly not like that.
