Safari on the iPhone might not be the most advanced browser, and may not even be the most convenient to use either! Particularly when compared against many other competing browsers available there such as the Opera Mini and iDroid among others. But these advantages aside we cannot deny the fact it is still the most used browser on the iPhone (ah some analogy to the Internet Explorer in Windows comes to the mind!). One of the biggest annoyances with Safari is the slow startup/loading of the browser. This is mainly because of the built-in session saving feature that Apple has integrated here, where it tries to restore all the open tabs on loading, and that makes it very slow! Unfortunately there is no option provided by Apple in iOS to disable this. However there is neat little trick that can significantly cut down the loading time of the browser. Best of all no jailbreaking is needed and it is very simple to follow!
All you have to do it open the Safari and enter the about:blank in the location bar and hit enter. This will load the blank page in the current tab. Now touch on the Share icon and then select Add to Home Screen and you are done!
Now whenever you want to have a quick browsing session just tap on the icon for the blank page that is placed on the home screen. Another advantage is that this trick will allow you to avoid the extra step of opening of a new page in Safari.
