[Giveaway] Want to Add A Home Button to Mobile Safari?
This tweak will add a home button to Mobile Safari in iOS.
All major computer browsers have something in common – a home button. They have this because all major browsers allow you to have a home page. Mobile Safari has never supported home pages natively; it's a feature that a lot of iOS users wish that Apple would implement, but there are jailbreak tweaks that let you set a home page. One such tweak is this one, dubbed Home Button in Safari by a developer who goes by the alias of Fr0zen Sun
Home Button in Safari allows you to have a home button integrated right into the Mobile Safari action menu, as shown in the image below:
The "Go Home" button will take you straight to your home page. The home page is configurable in the Settings app. I have set the home page to Google
as shown below:
That's really all there is to it. Home Button in Safari lets you have a homepage and a button to take you to that home page. Thanks Fr0zen Sun!
