Navigating Back and Forth

Safari on the iPhone supports two ways of browsing: The first way is the traditional browsing method that as you tap on links on a page, the page you are currently viewing is replaced by the new page. This is how every browser that you’ve ever used works. The other way is a cross between spawning new pages and the tabbed browsing you’re used to in Safari or Internet Explorer on your computer. By default, when you tap a link on a page in Safari on your iPhone, Safari goes to that page by replacing the page you were currently looking at. To go back to the previous page, tap the left arrow at the bottom of the Safari screen. Once you go back at least one page, you can go forward by tapping the right arrow.
