‘RestoreTab for Safari’ Makes Losing Pages a Thing of the Past

Don’t you just hate it when you accidentally close out a tab, desktop browser or otherwise? Thankfully, most desktop browsers include provisions to quickly restore a closed tab in an instant. With mobile browsers, however, it’s a matter of going back through your history.

That’s about to change. Actually, that has changed. Introducing: RestoreTab for Safari — a jailbreak tweak that lets you quickly restore your previously open tabs.

And that’s not all; it’s a bit more than just restoring your previous tabs, as you’ll notice in this video walkthrough…


The cool thing about RestoreTab for Safari, is that not only does it restore your previously opened tabs, but it restores their full back/forward history as well. This will allow you to efficiently locate a specific page in the history of a recently closed tab.

Interested? RestoreTab for Safari is available for jailbroken iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. It’ll set you back about $0.99.
