    Downloaded IOS7 on to my ipad2 but when I opened Safari some of the features like the stacked tabs and swiping backwards and forwards are not there . Is this right for the ipad2?

    After crawling all over Safari on my iPad3, I'm pretty sure the iPads did not get the stacked tabs and swiping back and forth like the phones did. And, I'm sure it's because, being it's an iPad, we have more screen real estate, so Apple didn't have to stack tabs - they are all right there across the top.

    I did noticed that you can moved tabs around in the bar - but I don't know if that was a feature before iOS 7.

    Yes, you could move tabs around before.....I discovered that by accident when I dragged my finger across the screen in iOS 6!
