    I like everything about the new update, EXCEPT...the safari changes...why would they replace the thumbnails with
    The tabs a the top of the screen...wtf? There is like 50 apps that do this already, I want my thumbnails back !! Anyone else agree? I can't find a good browser app that has thumbnails and not tabs...

    Tabbed pages are all the rage for browsers these days but honestly, as far as tablets go, I prefer the original thumbnails that Safari used. It took just one tap to get to them and one tap to activate the one you wanted. Easy as pie, IMO. Another reason Im hanging tight with OS 4.3.5 :)

    I prefer the tabs, it looks worse, but it makes switching between sites a LOT quicker

    Would be nice to be given a preference for this. Disturbing when someone upstairs makes all these finite decisions.

    Personally, the changes to Safari are so far what I like best about the upgrade. I have six other browsers on my iPad and find I seldom use any of them since I upgraded.

    I'm having a hard time finding the love for the new tabs. I use the bookmark bar and I like that and I have tabs getting in the way. Maybe I'll grow to like them but not as of yet.

    Love the tabs. I found the thumbnails to be clunky to access.

    Utterly and absolutely...I use my iPad and PC's at work all day...tabs in Safari suck...they only slow me down...thumbnails of currently open, or recently active webpages make me a happy camper, by allowing me to see more info in one glance, hence speeding me...and I do notice the slow down due to tabs. I deeply miss the functionality of the thumbnails. PLEASE, PLEASE, give us both options!

    Cannot disagree more. Tabs are much better for a web browser.

    There is no reason what so ever to prefer thumbnails other than you hate all changes. No other tabbed browser is as fast and stable as the iOS 5 safari, so that's completely out of the question, we must have this new safari. As for your strange preferences, it makes no sense because unless you constantly have 9 pages open, tab is faster for sure. Because tab switching is so fast even if you don't read it's still faster to just go through the tabs than to open that thumbnail screen, all those effects take too long.
