    hi, can someone tell me the gesture to refresh or reload a web page in Safari? It's very odd to have to scroll to toggle the menu and then refresh when you want to keep your place on a page. Thanks.

    You should be abele to simply touch at the top of the screen (or at the very bottom) and have the menu appear where you can tap the refresh icon (at least if this is in reference to Safari on an iPhone).

    Thank you. I was looking for a gesture that would do it without the menu.

    I don't believe one exists for Safari in stock (non-jailbroken) iOS (at the very least not for the iPhone as I recall).

    Really? I thought Apple would be all about gestures.

    All the gestures are already taken by other things.

    - up/down = scroll
    - swipe in from left/right = forward/back (forward changed to in from right and then back off the right edge in iOS 9)
    - swipe in from top = notification centre
    - swipe in from bottom = control centre (if enabled while in apps)

    Some extra ones exit on the larger screened iPads, but that's about it.
