Navigating a Webpage

Once you get to the webpage that you keyed in the URL for, you should know the best ways to navigate within Safari. First, to scroll down the page you actually use your finger to flick the page up. Undoubtedly, in most cases the page will be too small to read. You can quickly zoom in on a page by double-tapping on the page. This will zoom the display nice and large. To move the page around, just use your finger to drag the page in the direction that you want to drag it in. To zoom out, double-tap the page again. You can also zoom in and out on a page using multi-touch. To zoom in on the page, use two fingers in a spreading out motion as if you’re expanding the size of the page to zoom in. To zoom out on the page, use your two fingers to pinch the page as if you’re making it smaller, because you are. As you navigate to different links, you can go back to a previous page by tapping the left-facing arrow at the bottom of the Safari screen. You can go forward by tapping the right-facing arrow.
