‘BackForwardEnhancer’ Makes Mobile Safari a Better Browser

Browsing on a mobile device has gotten a lot better over the years, but it still has a long way to go before it can begin to truly rival the desktop browsing experience available on today’s modern browsers.

The iPhone’s default browser, Mobile Safari, is good, but it does leave a lot to be desired in a few areas.

Navigation is one of the main areas where there’s room for improvement. Besides your standard back and forwards buttons, there’s just not much there.

BackForwardEnhancer — a tweak for Mobile Safari — aims to change this without changing the core browsing experience. Check inside for a video demonstration of how this free jailbreak tweak works…


BackForwardEnhancer allows you to access all of your previously visited sites with a tap and hold of either the back, or forward buttons. It’s the same functionality you’ll find in any modern browser.

This is a feature that I use quite often on the desktop, so I’m happy to be able to use it on the small screen.

You can snag BackForwardEnhancer for free on Cydia if your iPhone is jailbroken.
