    Is there a way to close multiple browers all at once while surfing the web instead of one by one?

    If you mean the tabs in Safari - then no, I've not seen a way to close them all at once. Unfortunately, it's only via the "X" in the corner.

    You could go the Safari tab in your Settings app and clear the history, which will make all tabs close. But, nothing while in the app itself. Sorry.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    If you have updated to IOS7 there is a workaround for this......open a new tab and you will notice 'Private' bottom left. This is for Private Browsing, tap it and you will get an option box to 'Close all tabs'......you will notice the top of the page become dark to signify you are now in Private Browsing, to exit, tap Private again.
    If you haven't updated then no, there is not a way to do this as Mickey330 has said.

    Now that's a cool trick! Never thought of doing that.

    Thanks, leelai!
