Web Browsing the IPhone Way (part 2 of 2)
Tip 3 – URL sharing

Want to send the URL of a page that you are viewing in the web to a friend? Try tapping the address bar then choose “Share”. An e-mail message, a new one, will be sent that’ll contain the address being opened in “Mail”. Be careful to choose recipients, adding your comments and then tapping on “Send”.

Tip 4 – Making that Safari call

There will come a time that you’ll find a number inside Safari that you’ll be interested to call, you don’ need to go to the fuss of jumping to a phone component. You can do this by tapping on the number and let the phone dial it for your sake. This will work with URLs and phone numbers which are embedded in e-mails. Respectively, tapping will either open a whole web page or make a call.

Tip 5 – Investigate different links

In order to summon the information balloon in Safari, you have to hold your fingertip downward on a particular link instead of a tap. In this way, the balloon will display the underlying URL. This also happens when you hold a particular link in “Mail”. On the arrival of e-mails addressing updates on your accounts, just press and hold on that link in order to find out if you’ll be taken to the site that the e-mail has indicated you to.

Tip 6 – Start from the top

Upon encountering a web page that has a long view, and you suddenly decided on getting back to Safari, you need not scroll to the top. What you can do is to try tapping on the gray status bar which can be seen on top of the iPhone’s monitor. Immediately, you will be transported to the web page you are currently browsing.
