Edge swiping to switch between tabs works great and hopefully will
make its way into other iOS apps in the future. Switching between
tabs on the iPad is even better, as you can switch between
multiple tabs with a single swipe. Opening a new tab instantly
refreshes the tab, showing you the old version of the page in
black and white until the new one is available. Sounds pretty
great. So, why switch back to Safari? Here’s why.
I agree with pretty much everything in this review. Chrome’s experience is all about the omnibox. Me, I actually make pretty heavy use of bookmarks (and bookmarklets), so it makes a big difference to me that Safari puts those one tap away. Especially on the phone, I prefer tapping to typing.
