    The manual shows tapping on a double box but I can't find a box like that anywhere.

    Are you trying to do this in the web browser? If so just hit the + sign near the top right to add a second page. Then you can add a third, fourth, fifth, etc...

    Could be referring to double tapping the home button to bring up the list of open apps you have.

    Actually the only double box I remember seeing was on the iPad 1 as Safari does not have tabs going across the top of the screen to change to other pages but you tap on the double box to see up to 9 different screens that you have open.

    So if the OP happens to be on an iPad 1 or possibly looking at a manual for an iPad 1 that is what is going on.

    Oh yea, I remember that. I think it was actually a software update that did away with those. I remember that's how it worked when I first got my iPad 2. Still how it is on the iPhone.

    I just gave my daughter my old iPad 2 for her iPad 1 and she was like, "Hey I get tabbed browsing!" And this was 10 days ago so I think the iPad 1 still has the same Safari experience.

    I had tabs on Safari with my iPad original, but it was done differently on the early iOS. At first you could have several web sites available, with a page to select the last nine you were at, as I remember. It was replaced in iOS 4 by tabs.

    I just got her iPad 1 out and yes you are correct. It does have tabbed browsing so she must have really been behind on updates! I have since wiped her device and set it up as new. When giving her my old iPad 2 I asked about restoring from her iTunes backup and she laughed and said it hadn't been done in months. I guess she wasn't joking!:confused:
