Every once in a while when you're trying to view a Web page in Mobile Safari for iOS 7, you might accidentally trip the forward and back swipe gesture when you're scrolling up and down too fast, or when you're trying to swipe through an image gallery. While Apple's idea behind the swipe gestures for forward and back were good, the truth is that there are many Web sites where the gestures just aren't compatible with the site's built-in functionality.

If you want to disable the ability to swipe left or right on a Web page to move forward or backward through your Web browsing history, then check out a new free jailbreak tweak called NoSwipeSafari by iOS developer openro0t.

With swipe gestures disabled for navigation, you can revert to only using the forward and back buttons from the Mobile Safari user interface. This way, you'll never have a clash between scrolling through Web content and accidentally moving forward or backward through your Web browsing history ever again.

NoSwipeSafari doesn't have any options to configure. Simply installing the tweak disables the swipe gestures from Mobile Safari. If you want to give the tweak a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7 is required.
