Opening Multiple Web Pages

Safari on the iPad enables you to open multiple web pages at the same time. You can view only one at a time, but you can hold your place on a page while you look at something on another page.

Previously on the iPad, you used a complex system of pages to do this. But in iOS version 5, you can use tabbed browsing just as you can on Mac and PC browsers.

  1. While browsing the Web using Safari on the iPad, tap the + button at the top of the screen to the right.

  2. You see two tabs at the top of the screen now. The one on the right is in front of the one on the left and is labeled Untitled since no page has yet been loaded. You can see that no web page is displayed below the tabs.
  3. You can return to the previous tab by tapping it.
  4. You can enter a web address to load a page in this tab. Alternatively, you can enter a search term or use a bookmark to navigate to a web page.
  5. You can close the current tab by tapping the X button to the right of the tab’s name.
