re open closed browser windows in Safari for iPad

You can easily re-open closed web browser windows in Safari for iOS 5 on the iPad, just tap and hold the + button that usually opens new tabs – after holding it for a second you will see a pop-up menu that shows recently closed tabs for quick recovery and access.

If you don’t want the recently closed tabs to show any history, you can either clear mobile Safari history and cache or just use the new Private Browsing mode to prevent them from accumulating in the first place.

    Nice article, but you say that this was Lifehacker’s idea. In fact, they got it from Right Now In Tech, which is my blog.
