Using iCloud Tabs
For this first example, imagine that you're browsing from your iPhone and have opened related content across a number of tabs. How can you manage these tabs?
The answer lies in Figure 6. Tap the Tabs icon in Safari (iOS or OS X; it works the same way in both browser versions) to show all open tabs. From here, you can click the plus sign to open a new, blank tab.

Alternatively, you can close tabs that you no longer need, as I show you in Figure 7.

Now go to another iDevice (iPad Air in this case), open Safari, tap the Tabs icon, and swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Don't swipe from the very bottom, though, or you'll pull up the Control Center instead of the iCloud Tabs list.
As you can see in Figure 8, from my iPad I can clearly and easily see the tabs I have open on my iPhone.

Loading a remote Safari browser tab is as easy as tapping the exposed link. For completeness, Figure 9 shows you what it looks like to access the Tabs screen and view remote iCloud tabs from an OS X Mavericks computer.
