    Some Safari pages aren't formatted to allow pinch and zoom. If you need it, turn on three-finger zoom in the Accessibility settings.

    There is a tweak in Cydia called Flex 2 that will disable the Safari Swipe. It costs $3.99. Has many other features. I've got it installed and it works great. No more mistaken swipes.

    I love that more and more apps are incorporating it as well.

    Agreed. I've never had any problems with it and I absolutely love using it. It's one of my favorite iOS 7 features.

    I'm a swiper as well. It beats tapping the tiny x on the corner.

    Doesn't a tiny "x" usually close things?

    Yes, and some are hard to get to.

    I had to backtrack this thread. I was referring to the swipe to delete tabs in Safari. I like swiping to do that. But I like swiping all kinds of things. I even like swiping photo settings when editing. :rolleyes:

    Why is this not a more recent subject? I have constantly since the left right swipe inception have been taken back to the previous website page. Don't give me this you have to swipe 3/4 of the screen I can do it by coming close to the left side of the page and not even making it to the center of the home button before it flashes me back to the previous page. You think it's nothing but when your typing out a long entry in a text block of a webpage that just wasted your last ten minutes and you quickly scroll with your finger left to right to see the beginning on the current line your typing and next thing you know your looking at the previous screen and lost everything. yes it's a problem. I want it gone of the ability to decide if I want gestures.

    Also the left side gesture window expands when your zoomed in to a normal website so you can touch almost a half inch inside of the screen to flick the page back to the left side and trigger a back page gesture only touching the screen for about a 1/4 inch at a fast pace. Try it. We older people need to zoom into this little screen to read stuff. Gestures suck!!!
